I purchased this tent in August in all hopes to have it replace my Kelty Green River 4 tent. I'm glad I still have that Kelty. First of all, you NEED 2 people to set the tent up in regards to the hoop design. Secondly, the tent poles aren't the typcial post and grommet style- they are a rounded nub that snaps into a plastic clip. The rainfly also attaches to this clip. That assembly is begging for breaking in cold temps. Third, you will need to attach and set up ALL guy lines to keep the rainfly off of the tent body- if you don't you will get wet from condensation. Fourth, the "bathtub" floor lets dew in the tent from just grass- I'm glad I wasn't caught in inclement weather. On a good note, once the tent is set up, it is very spacious and roomy, but I'll trade some room for ease of set up and durable parts. In summary, this will be going up for sale on Ebay this week.

This is top notch quality gear from these guys! I'm 6'6" and about 220 pounds and this jacket fits perfectly! It's actually because of the generous arm length in their products is why 80% of my gear is from Mountain Hardwear! I haven't used it in the rain yet, but I've been out in some nasty sleet, freezing rain and snow and it works flawlessly. My work requires me to be in the field quite a bit, and the durable fabric is holding up through some thick brush and briars. Great product!
