The best Three Person tent on the market - PERIOD.
5 5

Have had this tent for 3 years now. It has stood up to all the rain, wind and sleet and hail that the Sierras can dish out.

Not only is this tent as light if not lighter than most two men tents (mine weighs 4lbs 12oz total) but it actually fits three people! The nearly vertical walls actually allow three guys to stand each other for several hours. And the roomy vestibules allows all of us to throw our backpacks under its wings

The only complaint is the price as many have mentioned but also the issues with condensation. After staking out the tent, I've always guyed out the two short sides of the tent so increase airflow and also kept the brow open as to help increase it. Even so some nights I've had issues with condensation with three guys inside the tent. Nothing that a few minutes of sun drying in the morning can't fix but it does add to the many chores one has to do before breaking camp, which can be an annoynace

Mine still looks immaculate after years of use and there is no sign its gonna give up anytime soon! Big Agnes FTW!

The Gamma series used to be one of the best softshells jackets around. Until Arc'teryx in their crafty acts decided to move production to China (surprise, surprise?). They not only brought the overrall quality of this jacket down but by just looking at it, it just seems another piece of TNF branded jacket. The sewing and stitching lines are not as well done as before and from already comparing several different gammas I can tell that many of them don't have the quality consistency as before. The outer shell is softer and much more prone to snagging than the older models too. Thankfully, Arc'teryx didn't change one thing about this jacket. The Price. For that price either Arc'teryx brings production back to Canada or SIGNIFICANTLY lower the price to reflect their much lower production costs.

Ok, so I had an the Icebreaker Hopper and Tech T from 2 years ago. I still have them both and love them. But to share some of the daily loads these shirts have been seeing I decided to get another one. This time I had my eye on another Tech T. Well, when I got mine, the sewing on the seams did not look as sturdy and well done as on the two other Icebreakers I have. I look at the Tech and it now says "Made In China"!!!! The drop in quality is definitely noticeable comparing the two Tech T's I have. The fabric still feels the same but the construction is markedly INFERIOR to my Kiwi made one. Man, I would pay more for the same quality as my old one. But still this Tech T is a keeper.

Just came back from a trip to the Big Sur area of California. During Thanksgiving night the temperature dropped to the mid 30s, and I was nice and warm. The next day it rained the until noon, and while tent bound the sky blue color of this bag really cheered things up. The zipper did snag a bit, but overall it was a great bag. The 3/4 zipper was easy getting used to since it allowed for much quicker exit than half-length zippers. My only complaints are that the actual weight was 3oz heavier than stated and bag does not seem as warm as my Marmot Pinnacle, though it is 9oz heavier. Also, loft was NOT 6 inches as stated by MH, but great bag nonetheless.

Many people like Arc'teryx products because of their excellent workmanship and quality in their items. I just got these pants and noticed some stitching coming out from the stretchy belt area. I just cut it out and let it pass for a day, until I checked the tags and saw that these pants, unlike most Arc'teyx items are not made in Canada, but China. The price wasn't lowered and the quality wasn't as good.
