Excellent build quality. Have sat out many a storm in this one. Nice and roomy inside and vestibule in front is excellent for storage and foul weather cooking etc.

Ventilation is a breeze with extra options at foot of tent and circular door on inner tent is just great.

Uses strong clips to attach fly to inner, which is much better than velcro and is therefore much stronger this way.

Hello all fellow dwarves out there! This is surely the tent designed to fit us vertically challenged.

Ok --joke, but you shuldn't buy it if you're taller than 1.75m.

Design: 3-4 season convertible
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: Easy

This is a tent for cold climates because the inner tent is closed, only a tiny vent at your feet lets little air get inside (you can close it). It's a 3-pole design, which makes it stand like a house. For one person it's a good living space, but two?!

My problem in the Pyrenee was the condens and the heat inside, like a sauna! But up high in the mountains it was comfortable sitting inside while winds slammed against it with no result. And yes, the vestibule is great for cooking even when it rains. But the vestibule was not waterproof because of the "buttons" where you attach your door if you roll it up. Have to seal those on the outside and maybe then it's 100% waterproof.

Other minus it's not made for tall people (I'm 1,83m and my feet and head were against the fabric!). The inner door is round, looks cool and is easy to enter. The outer doors (you can make two but in rain you use one) are good to enter in rainy weather.

Design: 4 Season Cold Climate Hybride
Sleeps: 2
Ease of Setup: Quick and Really easy!
