Design: Modified 3 pole freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: Extremely easy
Weight: Does it really matter the tent sucked
Price Paid: N/A
I have the priviledge of working in the outdoor industry for 12 years. I don't think much of TNF but I got this tent for a GREAT price. It had been returned by a very unhappy customer, I now know why. I used the tent in the Northeast ONCE. It was a beautiful night, about 60deg f a strong breeze and I was alone in the tent. I was amazed at how much condensation I woke up to in the morning, even after leaving the vents wide open. Again TNF made a tent for one specific purpose, high altitude, dry, and cool camping. I returned it the next day. I don't want to think what it would be like in that tent while it's raining.
