Not bad, worked for me for 5 years 2 out of 5 stars

Review by: xtrmecat, 2009-01-16

It was the main backpacker for my wife and I for 5 or six years. Light, compact, easily set up in the dark or storm. I'm pretty big and the tent is not so it is as small a shelter as you would ever want. Too small for long trips. Also the roof ventilation is OK, but in full on conditions it does rain inside, more than once too. It was tough enough to use in my backyard without the footprint, but I'd recomend taking one when in the talus and you can afford the weight. The zippers started to show wear and get finicky on the last season out, at about 120 nights out.
The limited space inside also made it very difficult to store gear away from animals (salt craving marmots and goats) as the vestibules are open. I also switched out the stakes for heavier ones.

I'm 6'4" & 264 pounds- this tent rocks- but you need a a bivi sac to back yourself up & what you get is 100% satisfaction. Next, went trekking in Argentina (El Chalten) with heavy wind, rain, snow dust- man, I had it all. Bottom line, this tent can handle everything to sustain your trip in 3 seasons. problem now is I cant find the tent anywhere? If you locate a shop where the tent is sold e mail me

Great tent for backpacking. Really light, really small, easy setup. Vestibule is nice for boots. The stakes suck - I switched out for heavier ones that didn't bend as easily.

fairly good tent, light, easy to set up and take down. If dry it can be packed up with the fly attached in case it is raing during set up. the stakes are strong and light, and work well, except in sand. When 2 people are in it at once with the fly on, condensation forms on the single wall, and freezes if cold, and will fall on the first to touch the tent. the vestibule is not worth much, and has a negative effect if the tent is set up the wrong way in relation to the wind, or if the wind changes. The waterproofing works well. Other than the fact that the tent is no longer in production, i would recomend this tent.
