REI Geo Mountain 4
Price Paid: $230
We liked this tent so much we bought enough for our scout troop.
We use it all four seasons and we were in a blizzard and this tent kept us safe while trees were falling around us. It has more than enough anchors to keep it tied to the ground. We use both entrances and the vestibule works great for two.
We went camping with a family that had four guys in the tent but that is just too much. For two it is perfect with plenty of room. We added the attic and that allows for cloths to dry at night. We always hang a candle lamp inside, sometimes two if it is terribly cold outside and we have never had any problems.
I tore a small part of the guides for the poles and REI replaced the tent for us several years after purchase.
This is a tent that will be with me forever. Enough said.
Design: 4 season dome
Ease of Setup: not too bad, about 5 minutes.
Weight: approx. 12 lbs
Price Paid: $385
Well made, very strong tent which can sleep four in a pinch. Three can sleep and move about comfortably. The two vestbules accomodate alot of gear and muddy boots. Good wind shedding profile plus plenty of guy out points.
On the down side, the fly must be guyed out from the sides to keep it away from the tent roof during rains. Also, poor ventilation when tent is battened down for rainy weather which leads to a considerable amount of condensation inside.
