No trekking poles? No problem!
I haven't had much time with this tent but i set it up just in time for a pretty bad storm. It rained for 8-12 hours straight as well as 40mph gusts of wind. I dont use trekking poles so i bought a ortovox aluminum light probe and cut the string. To my amazement the probe worked perfectly as 2 poles!
Great construction, Fully taped seams and repels water amazingly!The tent was just as sturdy as any 4 season tent I have been in (which shocked me because of how light weight). Overall I would trust this tent to do 4 season tasks even though it would be a little chilly.
Definitely buy with confidence!
