Very cool design. The view is crazy beautiful while you're lying inside. Gear also easy to get in/out through extra long doors.

Downside: Poles come apart during pitching and taking down. Would never want to have to do it in the rain. Sleeps two comfortably but the air mattress won't quite fit the narrow end. You'll have to go with Therm-a-rests.


This is a great summer tent with great ventilation.

This is a great summer tent with great ventilation. It can withstand a Texas summer.

The downside to this tent is the shock cord in the poles wears out quickly. It can withstand some winds but I wonder how strong it would be in high winds. The ventilation is great and has a sturdy rain-fly. Claims to sleep three, but only two comfortably.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Osprey is a great value on a three-season backpacking tent. Features a sturdy three-pole frame system with shockcorded fiberglass poles. Heavy-duty nylon taffeta walls and floor are polyurethane coated for weather resistance; full- coverage rainfly offers good protection. Two large D-shape doors are made with no-see-um mesh for ventilation and zippered nylon storm flaps for protection. No-see-um mesh ceiling allows views outside and works in conjunction with mesh doors to provide good ventilation, preventing condensation. Includes stakes and zippered storage/carry bag.
