Gear Review

A few things need to be said...

... about the Rimrock 1p. Backcountry has listed many things that simply do not exist on this tent. There isn't a second door, there isn't two vestibules (unless you count 2-3 inches 'space' on the back of tent), and no way could this comfortably sleep three adults. And there isn't four side pockets, nor gear loft.

But don't let this deter you from otherwise positive review! Because even with these discrepancies, the rimrock is a great bargain 1p tent. Sets up quick, has room for a weekend pack and boots in the front vestibule, and sleeps myself (6'2-3") with 3-4in of wiggle room on both ends, more if I'm laying diagonally. It does have gear loops inside the tent, and with a little jimmying you can hang wet clothes to dry albeit drying right beside you. It might - might - be able to sleep two fit adults with mummy-sized gear, but be prepared to spoon cause your packin' in tight. Upgrade to a 2p if your flying dual or like a portable office. It's cool to raise the door with trekking poles; you can zip the door many different ways to increase ventilation; and the fast pitch is possible with the footprint. The footprint will add about 6 more oz making the total weight 3lbs 8oz. However it does create a nice tent-free shelter, and it's never a bad idea to protect an investment.

Overall, not too shabby.
