Who’s Steve? We don’t know—just some guy. The Extreme Tent features plenty of storage space for your mucky gear and mesh roof vents for star-gazing ease and breathability. Two doors prevent you from being trod upon when your tentmate wakes up in the middle of a toilet dream. Gear loft, stakes, and guy ropes included.

burly tent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

5 lbs is pretty hefty for a two person tent, but this thing is bombproof. the two vestibules are great and the tent feels pretty roomy . relatively easy to set up. buy some new stakes when you buy the tent, of your gonna use this tent for bad weather, you might as well get good stakes that you can count on.

Great Tent

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used this tent more then a few time and it has been great every time. Camped down by the sand dunes in high winds and the 6 steak down points really kept it secure. Also had a really weekend in the Mosquito Range and it was bone dry. Gets tight with 2 people and a dog but stays really warm also. Not the lightest but mainly use if for car camping.

love it.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This thing is huge, heavy and a bit of a bear to set up, however, those are sacrifices I am more than willing to take due to how bomber strong this tent is, and how much space there is on the inside. Super comfy, huge vestibules x2, more than enough room for you and a friend (unless you are both very big people) and, the most important stat for me, the interior height is a whopping 42 inches, and it doesn't lose that height to much on the edges of the tent. Ive been on to many solo trips in my ultralight two pole tent that I couldn't sit-up in. Comfort and room make a happy camper.

another nice feature, the doors on each side are oriented so that if you sleep head to toe with a friend, its super easy to get out. head to toe makes for a better fit for two people in the tent. works nicely.

I would not recommend this tent for those that are trying to cut down on weight. Its a heavy one, but not so heavy that its unthinkable to go soloing in, or to split the weight with a friend.

I love it.

Leaks like a sieve

I have the Extreme 2, 3 person tent, and if the 2 is anything like the 3, bring a bathing suit.

First time this happened, I checked all the zippers and the top of the fly was a tad open, which I thought resulted in the bathtub inside.
Second time this happened, it rained 10+ inches in 5 hours. I woke up to puddles all over the place. I use a footprint, had the fly staked and guy'd, but this thing just loves to leak.

It is a great tent, easy and fast to setup, but has now been relegated to spring, summer only, when there is no rain in the forecast.

Could stand up in a hurricane.

This tent is bomb proof. Held up to rain and snow and plenty of wind with no problem. Takes a little bit of time to set up with so many stakes to put in the ground (10 total). Not the lightest tent in the world, but I have taken it backpacking a few times and it has worked for myself and a friend. Just head to toe it and it works just fine. Not a ton of room, but there wasn't any spooning going on!

Do you carry the floorsaver for this tent?

Backcountry does not offer the 'Extreme Floor Saver 2.0'. You should be able to find one on the internet with an MSRP of around $20.

Tents I have used before were water proof,but the moisture of dawn was somehow able to get into thse tents. Is this tent having the same problem?
Any one had experience with this tent?
thank you

Any tent that has a full coverage fly, such as this one, can have condensation problems. Essentially, we put out a tremendous amount of water vapor at night. As the temps drop, that vapor condenses on the interior of the fly, or possibly even the inner wall of the tent, and then can be a problem. A few thoughts, avoid bringing wet gear into your tent... any added moisture will make this problem worse and leave your door open if there isn't a danger of rain. While some tents avoid issues by placing vents in key locations, this ALPs doesn't have those features and the large flat area on the top can encourage drops to collect and fall on the upper mesh, which may eventually lead to a few drops inside the tent. This doesn't mean it's a bad tent, just part of the game. If you really want to avoid the moisture problem, look for a tent with steeper walls (to allow the condensation to run down the sides) or vents in the fly.

Great tent. Great time.

Used the tent backpack around New Zealand. Lightweight, sets up in minutes, keeps water and insects on the outside looking in. Room for two if you're friendly.
