- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had the similar Chaos 3 tent for two seasons and have used it for backpacking in many different settings: heat, cold, rain, even a brief but violent hailstorm. This tent is easy to set up, is very sturdy, has solid zippers, isn't too heavy, keeps moisture and bugs out, and has plenty of room for two people, and gear. Even played Scrabble in it once! I doubt if you could get a better tent for this kind of money.
