Mountain Hardware is a good brand and this tent has been out for awhile. It is quite possible that the failure I experienced was an isolated problem. Having said that......
This past summer, I spent 5 weeks in Pakistan on the Baltoro Glacier and surrounding areas. Three days in, we had a brief rain. The tent leaked a bit and we forgot about it. Two weeks into the trip, we had a full day of rain. The tent was an absolute failure. QUARTS of water came through the tent. Water + down sleeping bags + many miles from home = major problem. We had to cut holes through the bottom of the tent in order to let all the water out. If not, our bags would have weighed 30 pounds and been useless. As it was, all of our gear was soaked and it took the next week of trekking to finally dry everything out. In the meantime, we slept in the cheap Chinese cook tent......
Mountain Hardware is a good brand, but I will NEVER NEVER buy another one of their tents.
Backcountry was amazing ?�and took the return back without a problem. Bad tent, but a great experience with backcountry.com
