Great light 2 man backpacking tent. Easy set up and great durability
- Extremely light
- Easy Set Up
- Not a lot of ventilation
Great backpacking tent. It is extremely light, and very easy to set up. It sets up by a series of snaps and a short pole across the top of the tent. It is a very stable tent, but you need to stake down the front and back vestibule for it to become taught. This was my very first tent I bought when I was 14, and now 4 years later, it is still water proof and no rips or tears. Because the tent is very light, you will not have a ton of room in the tent, but you will be able to sit up in it. There is plenty of room in the vestibules for 2 packs and any other gear from your trip The only downside is that that because it is a single wall tent, there is not a lot of room for ventilation, But if you leave the vents open you will be fine. Awesome tent, highly recommended if you can still find it.
