ALPS Mountaineering Jagged Peak 2 Tent
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
While I have not had the opportunity to use this tent in winter conditions yet, I would not hesitate to, and as a 3 season tent it is the best I have had in forty years of camping/backpacking! Incredibly easy setup within fifteen minutes at most. The continuous pole system with joints is new to me and worked well. I set this tent up on my property in the PNW and left it out in the open to test it in the elements for over a week in several torrential downpours and 30+ winds (40s daytime & low 20s night) and it stayed bone dry. Excellent ventilation with several size mesh openings, including door, that let the plenty of air in for warmer days and closed up for cold nights, and keeps bugs out compared to tents without the mesh that let everything inside. Two doors with one large size that make it easy to get in/out of, nice size vestibule sizes w/ room for boots under one and a large backpack, etc. under the other, or cook under. The room inside is amazing, especially the height of 50" I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a well made, sturdy, and very reasonably priced tent!
A 4-season 4-2P year-round!
First of all,very few 2P tents have a 50"int. height and 35sq ft of floor space.And for the money I paid for this tent and footprint,it was quite the bargain.An all-around year after year light load(two people split the weight)and we're talking three and a half lbs each.Not bad,to keep the weather off you no matter what it is.
Seen a few reviews mentioning how this...
Seen a few reviews mentioning how this tent does in rain, but has anyone used in in winter conditions? It claims to be 4-season, has anyone who has used other 4-season tents have any experiences or opinions?
I don't have this tent, but I own/have owned Alps Mountaineering packs and sleeping bags.
In general, Alps Mountaineering products are of lower quality than other brands, and the price reflects that.
Hardware, particularly cord pulls, fall apart or break within a few uses. Their packs are thinner and more flimsy than even my 20+ yr old Jansport external frame pack. The zippers, except for the really heavy ones, are suspect.
I'd trust their 3-season tents for light backpacking, but for 4-season use, especially in snow, I'd look at other brands.
Unlike Pat P. I have used Alps tents, although not this particular model . The material and build quality seems good in my experience. While they are not up to the quality and technical sophistication of the bigger name brands (Mt. Hardwear, MSR, etc.) in my experience they provide an excellent bank for your buck. This particular tent appears to be very well reviewed,on one site being picked as the best budget alternative to a Hilleberg jannu (which is saying a lot), and fairly light for a 4 season 2 person tent. One caution i have is that there only appear to be a few guy points on the fly, so I would be hesitant to take this out in the worst (windiest, heaviest snow load) conditions. Hence I would not perhaps pick this for a serious mountaineering tent, but I'm pretty sure it would do well for everything else.
Looking for a footprint for this tent....
Looking for a footprint for this tent. Can't find a specific one, any ressomendations for what would be a good fit?
Look for amazon.com,they have it.
Bring up Alps Mountaineering web site and look for their tents and accessories section.
I bought this tent to camp in Iceland where it was very rainy and I didn't get a single drop of water inside the tent using the rain cover. It was the perfect size for 2 people and all our gear. I would recommend this tent to anyone for any climate! I am very satisfied with my purchase!!!
I have an Equinox 2 that I bought on SAC for a crazy low price...its essentially the twin to this tent. Same pole setup and floor plan. Just went through a monster TRW storm at Shenandoah and the tent did very well indeed. The low to the ground fly rode out the wind and kept out the rain very well...dry as a bone. Strong pole support. Bottom Line: ALPS may have bargain prices but they make great gear and are well worth the money. BP
Looks promising so far
I picked this up on Steep and Cheap for $140. With tax and shipping total was about $160. Have not used it outside yet; set it up tonight in my living room. I'll take it with me on the Grand Teton next weekend and will write more after that. Initial impressions: 1) very easy to set up; 2) it has an opening on each side which is very convenient for a 2-man tent (each person has their own entrance); 3) seems large enough to be reasonably comfortable for 2; I am not small (6' 4", 230 lb) but there would certainly be room for two of me in the tent; 4) there seems to be enough room under the vestibule to fit a pack (definitely would not fit in the tent); 5) the floor seems rather thin so I am looking for a footprint.
