Not a bad buy, but this tent is more suitable to cold conditions where you want to snuggle up in your sleeping bag.
- Solid construction
- Large door
- Poor ventilation
I live in a warm weather country (Israel) and haven't had a chance to use this tent in the rain. It is made of high quality materials and feels like a sturdy tent. However, it has serious ventilation problems and if the weather isn't cold enough, the interior gets really hot, even at night.
Plus, I am a big person (6'4", 242 lbs) and even though this tent is designed for two persons, I feel a bit claustrophobic in it, and don't have enough room to lay comfortably.
It wasn't a bad buy, but this tent is more suitable to cold conditions where you want to snuggle up in your sleeping bag.
The distinctive semi-circle shape, three-pole design, and high-low venting set the Meso 2 apart from the rest of the field of two-person, three-season tents. The 40-denier nylon canopy with no-see-um mesh helps air circulation, and 70-denier nylon floor with water-resistant polyurethane coating protects you and your gear from mud and moisture. The color-coded DAC Featherlite NSL poles and clip-pitch technology provide a solid frame in just minutes. A side entrance and vestibule provide a covered entrance and extra storage space. A second side door keeps your guest from crawling over your area. The fly can be pitched separately in the event of a sudden downpour, or just pack the fly and poles only for an ultralight setup. Compatible gear loft and footprint (Sold separately).
