Alaskan proof bomber tent!!!

I've used this tent multiple times with my family of four on salmon dip-netting trips and other outdoor activities. The true test was a fly out, float out trip I did last fall with my dad. The adventure consisted of 800+ miles of driving one way to the landing strip which was just south of the Arctic Ocean. We were then flown 50+ miles into the mountains and dropped off inside of ANWR. The first night tested the tent thoroughly. Temps dipped into the 20s with snow/ice and 50 mph winds. The tent did such a good job while we slept that I was surprised to see the snow outside the tent when I went to make our breakfast. We floated out using a SOAR Pro Pioneer and put up and took down the tent four more times in our 60+ mile float out to the road. The tent performed flawlessly with no inside condensation and being consistently warmer inside than outside. The double vestibules and doors made keeping gear dry and the inside of the tent clean easy. No climbing over the other persons gear and bag to get to your gear and bag. I've just purchased the Nemo Asahi with the Garage and can't wait to put it through the rigors of the Alaskan summer.
