i've had my eye on this set for a long time now, but i was wondering a few things... if anyone can help me out:

-what's the quality of the plastic dishes?
-do they stain from any type of food easily?
-something that wold hold up for 7 months on the appalachian?
-anyone have the actual weight for this set plus the pan you can add?
-how well does the non stick actually work? eggs, pancakes?

Over all i would say this is a good tent for leasure camping. i'm a backpacker/adventurist myself and this is a bit heavy for anything like that. including the stakes (which are pretty heavy duty) that i added to the pack my tent comes in at around 11 lbs. that's 10 lbs more then i would ever think about putting into my pack. yes, light weight shelters aren't always as nice as full sized tents... but that's just how i choose to roll >;)

this tent itself is great though if you're not worried about the extra weight. while i wouldn't go tossing it into my pack i would toss into the back of my truck or an atv for have a more comfortable base of operations where ever i was going.

Very sturdy with the right stakes... warm, keeps wind out, great vents, stash & stow pockets on the inside.

yeah, i would agree with Luke Wyma on that... the tent itself if pretty sturdy, but it's the anchoring that really counts. don't even think about the stakes that it comes with.

i got me a set of these: Snow Peak Solid Stake #20 Tent Stake

okay personal opinion here... but Primus stuff SUCKS, compaired to the stuff that Brunton was making. why they stopped making their stuff not to compete with Primus is insane. i've compared every single cooking device they have had simular to eachother and Brunton wins every single time! Why did the good stuff go away so that crappy stuff is all we're left with?

BRING BRUNTON PRODUCTS BACK, or at least sell your designs to Primus stuff better!
