- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
My tent is the older version which is a different color but I'm still using it often. I bought this tent for a 30+ day motorcycle trip to Alaska and it performed flawlessly. Had many days and nights of pouring rain and the tent remained dry. It also held up well to windy days and temps down into the 20's. I was also pleasantly surprised at the stakes that came with this tent as most of the time they are lacking. I've pounded these into all types of ground with no problems, and have only managed to bend one of them slightly. I like the fact that it's a single door, and the vestibule is large enough to actually store gear under if the conditions are muddy. Three average size people might be a little snug, but most manufacturers seem to rate tents for very slim people. It fit me, and all my gear stored inside with plenty of room to spare. Great piece of gear!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've used this tent a few times and so far I have to say, it's great! I actually purchased this as a factory second from a different store and have yet to figure out what makes it a second. Overall, setup is fast and easy, even with one person. The poles seem reasonably rugged, and the dry pitch system should be nice if I ever find myself setting up in the rain or decide to shed the weight of the tent itself and use just the foot print, poles and rain fly. It does have a gear loft at the front as well as a couple of pockets at the rear of the tent. The floorless vestibule formed by the rain fly is nice for storing gear and helping to keep some of the dirt out of the tent a s well. I would like to see a few more view out sections in the rain fly since it covers all of the tent, windows included. I imagine 3 people will fit, but it would definitely be snug. I have used it primarily for myself and my dog, and have yet to try carrying it back packing.
