I'm impressed!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Took a gamble and bought this tent based on reviews below (it's a bit hard to return stuff when you live down in New Zealand), and I'm not disappointed. Light weight enough to use for solo trips, but roomy enough (just) for two - as stated previously the vestibules are not large, but they'll take a pack either side. Headroom is excellent and stops you feeling too cramped. Very easy to set up, although supplied instructions are for the LT3 and require a bit of head scratching to adapt for the LT2 - I'd suggest a couple of test runs in the backyard first.
All in all a great tent for the money - recommended.
Update : I managed to accommodate two 6 foot tall men, two packs, 1 rifle and 1 dog during a recent trip-gone-slightly-wrong. Not bad for a lightweight!
Update 2 : Finally got a rain workout. 10 hours of non stop heavy rain, not a single drip made it inside. Bottom of my sleeping bag got wet where I had it pressed against the fly, but that's to be expected. What a great little tent.

I'm impressed!

Hi, did you get footprint with this? do you think it's necessary? Have you tested if it is waterproof or windproof? I'm considering this as well. Looks really light!

Hi Ruth - didn't get the footprint but as the floor is quite thin I'll probably take a tarpaulin along if I know I'll be camping on rough ground. Stands up really well in the wind (and you have the ability to guy it out for extra stability if you like). Not rain tested yet, we're in the middle of a drought where I live so haven't had a chance.
