Does this tent include stakes?
Anyone used this as a snow camping tent? Im intending on using it in the Aussie alps, split between 3-4 people when we go hiking into the back country. Cheers
You could definitely use this tent in the snow as its constructed to be able to withstand that type of terrain/ weather. Generally if your not worried about weight going one person up from what will actually sleep in there is a good idea, with winter camping there is a lot of gear and a lot of down so a little extra room is nice.
Cheers thanks for that Bill.
We usually only hike with 2-3 people but sometimes with 4 or more. I was just wondering as i havent seen any reviews for people using it in the snow. Cant wait to test it out thou :)
Great tent. It has been though very strong winds and heavy rain for extended periods of time. my only issue with it is that the fly does not cover the lower sides of the tent
Can you pitch this as an "ultralight"? Meaning poles, footprint and fly only. Not your most conventional use for a 4 season, I know, but versatility is the name of the game here.
I think you should be able to do that. With the pole loops in the footprint, it should keep the fly on and standing
Yes you can .
First off, I'll preface this by saying that I have not used the tent in winter conditions yet. That is no snow or high winds. However, on recent trip to AK it rained for 10 out of the 14 days we were there, result, no water even though I did not seam seal it myself before using it. The best thing about this tent is you can at least kneel in it, even if you're a giant, and damn near stand in it if you're a midget, which is pretty awesome in a backpacking tent. If I was going to use something for climbing Denali or a long winter trek, scratch this tent. However, for a large 3 person tent+hunting gear this thing is awesome. The only real drawback I saw is that both vestibules are small.
Write your question here... is the rainfly adequate? are the seams folded and double stitched? is it made with noseeum meshing
Rainfly very adequate , seams folded seam taped all around 1200mm waterproof coating will stand up to 120 PSI , yes noseeum meshing
Great Tent, highly recommend for 4-season Tent. Spent a week in Colorado with Four guys in the tent, pitched it in a Basin for a week. Withstood 75+ mph winds with all anchors buttoned down. Didn't test it in the rain yet, but was warm at below 30 Temps and + 75 mph winds. Only draw back is that it doesn't come with a conventional stuff sack, which is not a problem because you split the tent up between people any ways.
What is the wind rateing for this tent ?
They don't list a wind rating, but I've read a number of full length reviews that all say it did well in strong winds. The design looks pretty bomber.
Look at Frank,s review here, he says he had it in 75 + MPH winds, that is pretty windy
Why has no one reviewed this tent yet? It sold out once already. Surely someone has a comment to share. Is it bomber? It's got a great space:weight ratio. Seems almost too good to be true. Is it?
That's about the same space:weight as the Pine Island 4, and I can assure you it's both good and true.
Definitely not too good to true. The Flying Diamond series is a premiere collection of tents that are tough to beat.
I have the Flying Diamond 8 and it's a fantastic tent. Never used the 4, but if it's anything like the 8, it's a built-to-last, rock-solid performer in all conditions.
You guys really should POST REVIEWS!!!!!! I ordered... SWEET!
