Summary

A crux-product with one thing in mind: the purpose. The rest has been cut out so you don't get any useless details that make things difficult or heavy. I would go for this one in high-alpine conditions and winter.

Pros

  • Bomb-proof!
  • Inner tent is waterproof
  • Price, compared to tents in the same quality
  • Simplicity
  • Weight
  • Space

Cons

  • Only 1 entrance
  • Not very available everywhere

This tent is providing me with a good home during my mountaineering trips, winter expeditions, and ski-touring trips.

The setup can take a while in the beginning. It sets up inner first. This makes it sometimes not so convenient when it is raining or snowing, but the inner tent is also waterproof, so if you hurry up it is no big of a deal.

The wind-proofness was the detail that got me to buy this tent. It is absolutely BOMB-proof! Been in windy conditions in Patagonia, lots of snow in the Alps...

The fly is a 7000mm! This is something a lot of four-season tents even don't get on their floor.

Because of the vertical sidewalls there is lot of usefull inner space and the storage room inside with the nice pockets at the side and in the ceiling is just what you need.

When there's a good wind you have no condensation at all, so major plus on that side.

For me the one thing that I would love is to get two entrances, and the additional weight for that would not be a problem for me.

Have used this tent now for more than 10 years now. Only now looking for a new one.

Experience

I am guiding expeditions in winter, coaching people in mountain terrain, and sleep in a tent for more than 150 nights a year.

Excellent design for a winter tent. Maximum interior space AND max strength for the weight.
