If you ever need to use the fly in anything but the best of weather stay away from this tent! The condensation on the fly is horrible, and due to some very poor design water will drip into the tent, and most likely hit your forehead!

I have spent many hundreds of nights in tents, but the 3 wettest by far was in this tent. No rain came through the fly, but the condensation was murder. And when it is impossible to get enough room between fly and tent... Well, you figure it out!

Setting up the tent is quite easy, but in rain everything is wet by the time you get the rainfly up. It is lightweight, just a tad over 1.7 kilos. And it compresses nicely as long as you pack the poles separately.

I was lucky enough to get a refund (consumer rights on this kind of merchandise is not the best here in Norway) and paid a bit more to get a Hilleberg Soulo instead. It weighs more and is smaller, but it is designed to work in our climate.

If I just needed a tent to keep the bugs off me when sleeping I might have kept it.
