NIce, Nice nice. Just got back from a 3-day adventure with the new Lynx 4. Easiest tent I've ever set up. Hey, believe the first instruction to: DO A TRIAL SET UP BEFORE GOING... I did, and one of the poles snapped in half immediately... grrrrrrr. BUT, I called Alps and their SUPER customer service FedExed a pole set in time for the outing, no Q's asked. That's my kind of customer support!
We had some brief, but heavy downpours in East Tennessee and I stayed high and dry and so did my gear under the vestibules. Easy in and out with the spacious doors (smooth zippers) I'm 5'8' and could step out rather than crawl out. The rainfly has adjustable top vents and it was quite comfortable with mid 60 temps at night. I have no doubt that the Lynx can handle some severe weather.
The Lynx 4 is definitely a well made tent that will see several years of action. Great value for the features and quality. I'm glad I'd read several tent reviews and stumbled across this brand. Oh, and I'm a space hog so this tent is just for me usually, but my wife and I still have plenty of room. 4 people? Mmmm, kids maybe. Lynx 4, a great tent from a great company.
