Preying Mantis 4S

rated 5 of 5 stars I use this tent in all four seasons year round, never a drop of water on me, Extremely sturdy in high winds. I have never had it come apart in a storm. This confidence makes it easy to get a nice peaceful night's sleep knowing your gear won't let you down. This is by far one of the best four-season tents I have ever owned. I have backpacked all over the U.S... It is well worth the weight to know that your tent is going to stay put in any weather. The vestibule has a lot of room for gear storage… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I've owned this tent longer than I've owned a cell phone. I love this tent and haven't any plans to replace it. I look for another one on eBay just to have two. This company made great tents that were easy to set up and handled all that nature could throw at them. Two entries and vestibules, so you never have to sleep face to face with those you don't really want to with. Great ventilation. Rain resistant to the max. All-clip setup can be done in 5 minutes.

Preying Mantis 4S

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought this tent new from an outfitter in Ely, MN, back in 1995. I spent many snowy and -40 nights in this tent while trekking the BWCAW over the course of 5 years. This tent has seen punishment, being tossed into a canoe at sub-zero temps, camping on ice of a frozen lake, and being set up in the black of night with winds howling! At first I felt foolish for spending so much on a tent until I spent my first winter night in it. It is an unbelievably awesome design. NO frost on the inside in the… Full review

Preying Mantis 4S

rated 4 of 5 stars I used this tent a lot in college. I've had it for probably 13 yrs although since I moved to Texas (9 yrs) it hasn't seen much use. I've never been totally in love with it, primarily because it's a bit of a chore to set up and you have to bring the fly along whether you want to or not. That said, once it's set up the thing is killer. The vestibule rules the wasteland so to speak, and you're in there solid no matter what weather comes along. I had to take the fly back after my first trip because… Full review

Preying Mantis

rated 5 of 5 stars Best tent I've ever owned. The weight is not bad, but the interior size is excellent and vestibule is huge with super easy access. A true freestanding tent, not one of those wabbly things that require staking. Three great spots to store small things including overhead. Best part is that this tent is unbelievable in the rain. I've never bothered to waterproof it but it has never let a drop in. The first time I used it was in an unbelievabe storm in Georgian Bay, it literally pissed. There was so… Full review
