Mazzachusettswrote a review of ALPS Mountaineering Chaos 2 Tent: 2-Person 3-Season on November 29, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought this in 2010.
I use it about a dozen times a year for backpacking in the White Mountains of NH as well as car camping and its taken its share of punishment. Probably a 40-60 nights total including some winter nights. The interior space of this is hard to beat and makes up for the extra weight of the product. I really want to "upgrade" to a lighter tent but can't bear to lose the roominess of this tent. Also the fabric is tough enough to not require a footprint. Over all solid, easy to set up, rain fly has never let me down. Tons of interior pockets also.
I put my gear through its paces and I take care of it but I don't want to baby it. I like having a durable roomy tent for backpacking even if it means being a little heavier. Also the price of this is very hard to beat.
Excellent value for what you get. Expect to get many more years from this before retiring. Cheers!
