Glad I bought the Salida!

I bought this for a trip to Glacier Park MT. This trip was not a pack in trip, but I plan on using the tent for that purpose. Small and light weight, big enough for two campers. During the trip we had a two day windstorm with sustained wind over 30 mph, and gusts (a lot of them!) over 60 mph. Most of the other brands in our camp were pretty torn up but this tent didn't even move! Don't know if it was the alumimum poles or the shape or what, but this was awesome! My first tent with screen mesh sides. Noticed no condensation on the inside of the tent the way my old nylon tent did. This is a definate plus. No side windows to let the wind blow through, but still plenty of ventilation. I plan to replace the aluminum stakes with something more suitable for rocky ground, but as far as aluminum stakes go these are plenty durable for normal soil.

Great review. I went to Glacier this spring. I lost a pop up shelter and a tent to a storm.l Now I am searching for a new tent that can stand up to strong winds. Thank you
