Robert Saunders Mountain Trek
Design: four-season geodesic elongated dome
Ease of Setup: very easy
Weight: 4.6 kilograms
Price Paid: $430 U.S. Dollars
I waited since November 8th to get this tent and finally it came from England.
This tent is very similiar to my former Diamond Brand Mountain Home 2-person tent in design. It has an elongated geodesic design with four 8.5 mm aluminum shockcorded poles that slide through non-continuous mesh sleeves. The rainfly is polyester and the tent body is ripstop nylon with a three inch nylon tafetta tub-style floor. The tent features two door at each end of the tent body and the full coverage rainfly forms two stake-out vestibules. The color of this tent is green-flysheet, tent body and floor.
My only fault I found with this tent was a slight cut in the floor near the seam where the floor meets the tent body. That is the reason for me rating this tent with four stars. Otherwise it would get 5. :( I repaired this cut with a patch and a little seam grip. Now the tent should be just fine! :)
Weight: 4 lbs
Price Paid: $65
I have had a gc2 two-man tent for 35 years. I sent it back to Robert Saunders to have a full net horseshoe door fitted, but also keeping the original which is also the same shape. This one I can zip up during the winter months and in the hot summers on the continent near lakes the tent has good ventilation so no more midges.
It's a great tent and has held out in all weathers. Unfortunately Robert Saunders has stopped making this tent. While dealing with the company I have always had quick a reply. STRONG AS A RHINO'S HIDE AND AS LIGHT AS A FEATHER.
