Great tent

North Face and Mountain Hardware do a better job of marketing their tents as 'extreme', but Sierra Designs ?hands down? makes a better tent.

The DNA for this particular tent originated 30 years ago in the Stretch Dome.They've been perfecting ever since.

I've used Sierra Designs tents on 5 continents and in every condition you can imagine. Not once have I ever been failed. (And when you are in a howling windstorm in zero degree temps ?�reliability is a matter of life and death.)

Make sure you look at the size. Sierra Designs tents seem to feel a little more roomy than other tents. You may not need a 3-person, when a 2-person will do.

Hey Lei5176488,

I got a sweet deal lined up for this tent for winter camping in BC and the rockies. Did you ever use a footprint in your time using it? Did the 5000mm floor waterproofness bother you at all as the newer ones all seem to have 10000mm floors in the north face, mountain hardware, nemo equipment, and MEC tents?
