  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Pretty cool, eh? Had this idea while setting it up at home for a recent solo outing and it worked great in the field. Had some trouble keeping the door rolled up when both sides of the vestibule door were unzipped so i would stick personally to having just one unzipped and folded back like a traditional tent rainfly door. but instantly this other technique popped into my head for extended weather protection, especially if i needed to cook in the rain...i think it came from seeing non freestanding tents that use trekking poles. i am really liking this tent my only feedback would be the footprint and tent aren't for me lining up the way i was expecting - maybe cause its fairly new so the bathtub floor is not making contact around the edges with the footprint so it seems like a water hazard and i left the footprint at home last time.Maybe it just needs time to stretch and with more use the floor wont pull up at the edges. also it seems like the fly edges on the head and foots sides could use guyline tabs as in those two spots it kinda rests just over the tent body and could transfer moisture under heavy rain. But, minor complaints - a light, great tent for what I paid and this hack makes it even better. Haven't seen a pic of anyone doing this anywhere so wanted to share it with those who want to do it too - just need trekking poles and extra paracord to make the extra guylines. Used it twice so far as I usually backpack with my family in a 2 or 3p tent and take an annual solo trip. Though I may try and do those more.

...well, the 2p version is good.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I ordered this one person version, but Backcountry posted me the 2p one and then this was out of stock. Anyway, the build quality on the 2p appears great and it is super-roomy for the weight. If I was within the US I'd exchange, but it is too hard from here. Also, I got a good 2p tent cheap! Thanks Backcountry.

Great solo tent

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Been using this tent for a while this summer. It's been through some pretty good wind-blown rain and come out totally dry inside. Fully guyed out, it's tight as a drum and rock solid in the wind. I've slept in it in temps down to 40 degrees with the fly fully sealed up and have had no condensation issues. This is so much better than even the best bivy in terms of condensation.

I'm 5'11 185 lbs and I find I can can get a 55L pack in the tent with me easily (under my knees), as well as plenty of room for extra clothes, book, light, wool hat etc in the wider end by my head (the top is wider). The only time I've had to use the vestibule was on a longer trip I took with a bigger pack. My Exped 'large/ long' mat fits with room to spare at the top and snug at the bottom.

Personally, I love the bright yellow color. Makes finding your camp much easier.

The only concern I have is that the walls of the tent do not come up at a 45 degree angle from the floor. Its more like the floor sort of bends upwards to become the wall. This cuts down on usable floor space unless you want to put a lot of stress on the seams. If your tent site is less than level at either end, the problem is magnified, and I worry that the uneven pressure at the corners when you lay on it and push the floor down/ out by the poles will eventually tear or weaken the bathtub floor. Still, it has not failed yet, so perhaps its OK.

All in all, a great choice, and at the price a bargain for the weight.

Awesome 1 Person Tent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Easton Rimrock is a perfect one man tent! This tent is certainly not for people over 6' or people that are abnormally wide. I used this tent in a hellish downpour and it stayed dry. Even though this is not the lightest tent on the market, my packs base weight is still under 17lbs with the optional footprint.

A few things need to be said...

    ... about the Rimrock 1p. Backcountry has listed many things that simply do not exist on this tent. There isn't a second door, there isn't two vestibules (unless you count 2-3 inches 'space' on the back of tent), and no way could this comfortably sleep three adults. And there isn't four side pockets, nor gear loft.

    But don't let this deter you from otherwise positive review! Because even with these discrepancies, the rimrock is a great bargain 1p tent. Sets up quick, has room for a weekend pack and boots in the front vestibule, and sleeps myself (6'2-3") with 3-4in of wiggle room on both ends, more if I'm laying diagonally. It does have gear loops inside the tent, and with a little jimmying you can hang wet clothes to dry albeit drying right beside you. It might - might - be able to sleep two fit adults with mummy-sized gear, but be prepared to spoon cause your packin' in tight. Upgrade to a 2p if your flying dual or like a portable office. It's cool to raise the door with trekking poles; you can zip the door many different ways to increase ventilation; and the fast pitch is possible with the footprint. The footprint will add about 6 more oz making the total weight 3lbs 8oz. However it does create a nice tent-free shelter, and it's never a bad idea to protect an investment.

    Overall, not too shabby.

    Follow-up to my original post from two years ago:

    Took this bad boy on the Appalachian Trail with me and it did the damn thing, surviving multiple storms and the normal everyday I'm-exhausted-and-pitching-here wear and tear. I personally never used trekking poles to make a sunshade, but I'm sure you could. It's getting a little heavy for the times... but if you can snag one of these when they go on sale, you won't regret it.
