Summary

Overall, this is a very nice tent if you can get it below $200. It is a true two-person tent that can fit two adult men and their gear without any problems.

Pros

  • Lots of space for two people and gear
  • Three doors and three vestibules make egress easy
  • Stays warm during cold weather
  • The warranty

Cons

  • Tent poles should be thicker for this style of tent
  • Wish footprint was included

I have had this tent for a little over a year and have used it four times during the winter and cold camping in the Grand Canyon and North Texas. Living in Southeast Texas, I wouldn't even think about using this during the summer months. 

Setup isn't too difficult. The poles are color-coded to make it easier. The three vestibule fly requires lots of included tent stakes and guy out points. 

When staked and guyed out correctly this tent is very stable and strong in the wind and rain. I did have a tent pole snap during a pretty heavy snowstorm at the Grand Canyon. I filed a claim with Slumberjack's warranty department and they took care of it. 

I did not have any leaking from rain or snow. However, when the tent is buttoned up in really cold weather it will have some condensations build up. Make sure you vent it well. 

This is an actual two-person tent. Two adult men can sleep well in this tent with their gear stored in the vestibules. It is tall enough to sit up in and change clothes. Several pockets help to keep things organized. 

It packs down to a reasonable size for the size of this tent. It is heavy, even when divided between two people. I didn't buy this tent for backpacking though. 

Overall it's a really good tent, and I would buy it again. The only thing I wish they would change is the diameter of the tent poles. 

Experience

I am an avid camper. We usually go camping once a month in all types of weather.
