Just finished hiking the North Rim and Long Range Traverse in Gros Morne National Park Newfoundland. While there are tent platforms in some of the areas the wind and weather can be and was on occasion severe.
This tent suffered high wind extereme downpours and kept us dry. The storm vestubile also kept everything amazingly dry. There was little to no moisture build up on the inside of the tent itself, most on inside of storm fly.
The tent was quick set up and easy set up, room for all the equipment we had for 8 days 7 nights in the back country. The included gear loft was great for drying stuff out. The tent was relatively lightweight and packed nicely on inside of pack, with rest of equipment.
I cannot say enough good about this tent. This hike has no trails and can, on occasion, present with extreme weather and did so on a couple of occasions during this hike. The tent preformed well beyond expectations.
