User Review: Walrus Arch Rival
Design: 3 Season Hoop
Ease of Setup: Very Easy
Weight: 5 lbs.
Price Paid: $185
I recently purchased as a result of tests done by Backpacker Magazine. I am sort of disappointed with length. The stats say 8'-10" but it feels much smaller. I am 6'-4" and used to wake up in my now-sold-to-a-friend Kelty Vortex 2 with condensation all over my sleeping bag. I found that I would press the tent body against the fly as I shifted in my sleep. Now that I have the Arch Rival this is no longer a problem. The fly is a good 6-8 inches away from the tent. I have yet to get wet or even wake up in th stormiest of nights. I would very much recommend the Arch Rival to taller hikers. I still am wondering if it was worth the extra expense to buy the mesh version instead of the solid.
