User Review: Tarptent Contrail
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $200
Roomy, easy to pitch, backpacking tent with a sub 2 lb weight.
- roomy [could sleep 2 in a pinch]
- light [under 2 lbs]
- easy to pitch
- no condensation problems for me [very well ventilated tent
- sil droops when wet, but have a fix for that
Have used this tent for years all over the Smokies, can't say enough good things about it. Very roomy, have never had a condensation problem, sub 2 lb wt, very easy pitch [can use no front pole, a hiking stick or a light weight pole you can buy from Tarptent]. I like to use a front pole for a tighter pitch, not free standing but have never had a problem pitching in the Smokies.
Of course sil gets a little droopy when wet, but I use a very lightweight shock cord at each end of the tent to take up slack, thanks.
