You can always trust the quality of a Sierra Designs tent - easy setup, packs small, totally waterproof. Used it last weekend during a windy, rainy night in the mountains - bit of flapping going on but we felt safe, sound and warm insiude - highly recommend this tent.

Bought a 16L for my synthetic 25F sleeping bag - about the right size. It cinched down pretty good - and very easy to use. I really do like the way it compresses in a 'block' rectangular fashion - fits so much better in the bottom of my pack. Material seems more durable then the silnylon but will know better after a few trips. Decided to buy a couple of 22L as well.

I was hesitant about using this pad - wondered how I would feel on the 1 1/2" thick pad. Usually my hips bother me on too hard a surface but was very pleased that after 4 weeks of constant use, it performed beyond my expectations. I am a side sleeper plus I toss and turn alot - highly recommend this pad for year round use. Also packs away decently at 4.8" x 11" and quite light.

Waterproof fly, all seams taped, aluminum poles, double stitching throughout, easy set up - nice spacious feeling with lots of headroom. Comes with footprint, gearloft and huge vestibules. And now offered at an awesome price as Backcountry is dropping their private label. Buy this tent asap before they are all gone - you will never get a quality tent like this again for this price! Worth the $200 retail - awesome at $129!!

I was suspicious of this brand - never heard of them plus couldn't find any reviews on this model. Very heavy - almost 8 lbs - BUT it has an above average interior - 49 sq ft whereas most 3 person tents are 38-44 sq ft. Definitely a comfortable 3 person tent - and if need be - you could squeeze in 4. It'll work for backpacking but I bought it for car camping for 2 of us and it'll do us well this summer. Palace for 2 people - extra brow pole creates vertical side doors plus the high headroom - we can store lots of gear inside and still have plenty of room to move around. Great price for a tent with all the features it comes with - highly recommended for car camping.

Nice design - love the extra brow bar to give you more headroom. Very easy to set up - weight is reasonable. Width is nice as it accommodates 2 regular size sleeping pads. Tent seems to be very well made - excellent value for a under $200 tent. Highly recommended.

We set up this tent in our backyard to get familiar with it - ALPS really do give you alot of bang for your dollar. Lots of fabric to keep you warm, so, so easy to set up, aluminum poles, light weight 4 person tent, packs down to 22" long, waterproof fly, taped seams and the cross pole created so much more head room - I do believe this tent will serve our purpose very, very well.
