I saw in the description that this tent is designed for denali (where good tents go... to die) is this tent really up for denali in a storm? I like this tent because it is about 100$ cheaper than most the other ones i'm looking at, and i like marmot, but the thing that worries me is that it is 100$ cheaper... Is it still capable of surviving anything (minus axes, crampons and shovels)?

These are light, have effective crampons, and still float. I actually like the binding system... It is simple so harder to break. The straping system is the same way... I wear mountaineering boots with these so i can pretty much just tighten these as tight as i want em....

I have used this one for the last 8 years or so... I don't ever really maintain it, Don't treat it with respect, left it in rain, droped it down a cliff (whoops), have had it completly submerged, left it in a car in the middle of a desert (probably not safe, but whatever), had it burried in a drift, draged away by a racoon, and yet it is still going strong. This stove has had a miserable life, but outside of some discoloration of the metal this thing is still going strong. The only problem I have had with it is that at about 13,500 feet it doesn't seem to work as well, and it absolutly refuses to die so I can't get a newer model... So if you are like me and like to get new stuff every ONCE in a while.... this stove is NOT for you, but if you want something that absolutely will not fail... look no further...

If you are looking for something to keep the snow outside of your pants... I highly recomend these. I have used them now for Skiing and Ice Climbing I had to scramble through rocks, hit trees, and Even accidently got a little "wild" with my ice axe;however, these pants still are seemless and I have not had a problem with durability. The Side pocket side zip tend to look the same and i would recomend caution expecially if you didn't feel like wearing a base layer... Woops... Bottom line if you want a good shell these are not a bad choice and I am happy with mine.
