- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I used this tent while hiking the A.T., and it was perfect. It's very lightweight, but extremely sturdy. I camped in a lot of thunderstorms with heavy rain, and never got wet. I would have expected that after being used along the A.T. for months it would show heavy wear and tear, but it's still about as good as new, and I still use it for all my trips. I highly recommend this one.
