Very weather resistant, easy to set up, and durable. Best for canoe country. Highly recommended.
- Easy to set up even in the dark
- Weather resistance
- Heavy for backpacking
Assembly is very easy and fast, even with terrible light conditions. Very easy to take down and stuff back into bag. Bag about 8 inches extra room on top with tent in bottom for some extra storage. Good place for flashlights and toiletries.
Window screens are well made and keep out even the smallest of insects. Tie downs on rain fly are well built and seem to handle wind well. Properly staked, the fly doesn't touch the tent walls and dries very fast in the morning.
Have been using for 12 years, but feels and looks like new.
Possibly the best tent ever built. Camping in the Black Hills of South Dakota we woke to light rain which soon became a torrential downpour, but we never got a drop inside the tent. At one point there was at least two inches of water outside running around the bottom of the tent.
