Gear Review

Just what I was looking for

Just got this tent and took it out to J tree to test it out. Feels very spacious even with my 110lb german shepard, climbing gear and I all inside at night. Build quality is what I have come to expect from Black Diamond and is excellent! Comes with great stakes that resemble msr stakes. Although the tent is a little on the heavy side when compared to newer tents. I would feel very confident taking this into moderate weather conditions if I had too. I can't say the same for the Big Agnes speedhouse sl2 and copper spur tents I tried out prior to this one. Although the two big agnes tents were lighter. Their pole design was just to delicate for me to trust in anything but perfect weather. I had them fail in 35-45mph winds when the wishbone pole got inverted on itself and turned my tent into a flat kite. If your like me and need a single tent to do everything short of extreme 4 season alpine adventures. Check this tent out!
