Bit chintzy

The basic design of this tent is sound, however Kelty decided to improve on the wheel and used these little chintzy plastic pieces at the point where the tent poles hook into the tent corners, and also on the corners of the rain fly. I was afraid to break them when I set up the tent in our living room--much less out in the field when they freeze and "ping" break into 16 pieces when I take it down. I would not recommend this tent, and I'm sending it back.

I have used this tent in the field in below freezing conditions and the clips did not break.

I can confirm this. I was worried at first about the plastic connectors breaking, but so far they've been incredibly durable, even when I've been more forceful than I should on them. I've used them down to about 20 degrees with no cracking yet.
