Quick question. Are the vestibules the same size? Thanks in advance.
I just bought this tent recently and was a bit disappointed. I really liked the design and the concept, but it just doesn't seem to work out. The big issue with condensation in this tent is because this tent doesn't breathe! I've only camped in it once, but it wasn't raining, it was hot and sunny. The inside of the tent never cooled down. I slept with the door completely open and my head practically hanging out I was so hot. Another issue I had was the velcro for the poles. I set the tent up and took it down three or four times, and every time the velcro snagged the mesh and messed it up. My last complaint is with the footprint. It really is too small. The corners of the tent all hang off the footprint. I really wanted to like this tent so it's a shame I wasn't happy with it. All in all, not a bad tent, but for the price it should be a great tent.
I get cold easily, and I've never had a very nice bag, so I've missed out on a lot of camping! First night I used this bag it was 35 out and I was warm and cozy in this bag. It is very light and packs down nicely.
I really liked the idea that these shoes have. They do have some issues though. I bought a 9 because it fit the shape of my foot the best, but it was a little short. Also, I can't keep the heel from slipping, and the 9.5 was even worse. Having said that I still wear the shoes, and I've hiked a whole day in them. My feet stayed cool and dry, and the heel slip never rubbed me raw. But I wouldn't say these are true hiking shoes. I would almost compare it to hiking in Chacos, which I like to do when I can get away with it.
I'm no expert, but I really like this pack. I used a smaller Kelty for a stint through Europe, but I wanted something that could carry more gear. I have used this pack for only one overnight trip, and my girlfriend used the Kelty. We easily had enough for two nights. I like the simple top load design.
