User Review: REI Mountain 2
Ease of Setup: Could be a little easier
Weight: Around 7.5 lbs
As the other reviewers have mentioned, this tent is built bombproof for mountaineering, but would make a very heavy backpacking tent. One of my favorite features is the oversized, vented vestibule; I've used it for cooking in bad weather on multiple occasions (just make sure the moisture is not getting into the tent or you'll have a wet night) an loved it.
I decided that I really like this tent after sitting out a major storm on Rainier for two days (sustained winds of 60+ mph, with gusts over 90). This tent held up without a problem, but both of the other, more expensive tents in our party suffered damage. If you want the best mountaineering tent money can buy, get a Bibler; but if you want an affordable, yet very high quality tent, buy this one.
