Great tent. However, wouldn't say we put it through any serious hurdles. A foot of snow and single-digit temps were the worst this tent saw. Poles held up well, and tent wasn't as heavy as some 4 seasons I've carried. A good deal of moisture developed between the fly and the tent which we couldn't figure out. No matter how we opened the tent for air flow there was always lots of condensation on the inside in the mornings.
Plenty of space with TONS of stow capacity. Glow in the dark zipz are a fun accessory and came in handy during the midnight half-asleep scurries to the outhouse.
Stakes were solid in both sandy and silty ground. Were warm the whole time. A solid tent but has yet to be truly tested in extreme environments. I am especially curious to know how this tent holds up in 20-30mph winds.
