User Review: Walrus Two Star
Design: 3 season
Ease of Setup: fairly easy - sleeve systems
After using the Walrus for a few trips I had a seam rip. It was due to the tent body being too small for the poles thus placing too much pressure on the seam. I sent it in and Walrus restitched the seam and shortened the poles. While it was in for service I bought a new rainfly. My old rainfly didn't have a hooped vestibule and, thus, was very cramped. The redesigned fly has a hoop and a much larger vestibule.
My current problems are that the repair on the body fixed the ripped seam, but the tent is slightly smaller then the typical tent. The seam ripped because the tent body was small when I bought the tent. The result is that the fly doesn't fit well. I have a knot in the fabric near one of the clips to help reduce the fly size, but the fly still flaps like mad in windy conditions. There is no way to guy out the fly to stop this. (My TNF tent was much better.)
On the plus side the tent has kept me dry and there is good ventilation. The problems with the size tolerances are very annoying. I cannot recommend the Walrus brand.
