My initial impressions of this tent. AMAZING. I hit it once on a quick trip with my girl, if you're looking for a romantic tent, this is the one. The "Skylight" offered up some amazing nightime viewing.
Couple of technical issues.
1. Ive never used a tent with an internal pole system like this. Not so easy to set up on your own, though can be done, and Im unsure of how long the internal pole placements will stand up to some tough trips. The old pole sleeve system would have been fantastic here.
2. There is a bunch of stitching, but BD have been kind enough to supply Seam Seal, be prepared for a good couple hours worth of sealing.
3. The poles are held in place with velcro straps on the inside. Be sure to keep a sewing kit with you at all times. Who knows how long these will last.
I did not test it for "Water proofness" but can attest to not a lot of condensation. From what I understand in the past this has been a problem. But as a single wall, if you're going to get into some wet weather, take a double wall.
Aside from my couple of gripes, this tent is everything its meant and looks to be. It will definitely be my "Go To" fair weather tent in the future. Relatively easy to set up, very roomy for two people and perfect for experiencing the views we all head out into the wilderness for in the first place.
