Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just spent a week backpacking across the High Sierra Trail with this tent. I really wanted to love it, but the high level of condensation was a game killer for me.

Pros:
- QUICK and easy set up
- Light and impressively spacious for its weight
- Held up well in the wind, rain, and light hail
- Loved the side vestibule and overall design
- Wide door was great for easy access and enjoying the views

Cons
- Condensation was out of control in this tent, even in mild August Sierra weather. My partner and I struggled with soaking wet sleeping bags due to heavy condensation along the single walled foot portion of this tent on a nightly/morning basis. The tent was properly staked out nightly with the waterproof "window" down to provide for the best possible circulation, but every morning was still a drag. On the worst days we'd wake up with water pooled in the foot corners of the tent.

Hope this is something that can be be improved upon in the future, especially at this price point. Returning thanks to great BC customer service

Peace & Trails!

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

Took these on a quick 20 mile 2-nighter near Mt. Whitney. We caught the tail end of the first snow of the season and these held up really well. I was warm, dry, and comfy with temps ranging from the low 30's to mid 40's and snow ranging from nothing to 3' of powder. Great fit and mobility even with multiple base layers. Zippered welded pockets were clutch when trekking through snow covered passes. Can't wait to get back out in these!
