So there we were

    Even the folks using a pop up camper we getting unexpected horizontal rain storm on the Gulf and my bunk was complimenting how stable the tent was in the wind...and no rain inside at all (not even by the doors). The gear stayed dry and was parked out of the way. And yes, two doors make it nice, no matter the time of day.

    A quick fix for most occasions

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used this as my sole tent for the last three years and have put it through the wringer. Love the duel doors and vestibules, and the square floor design minimizes wasted space. The tent fly is solid workmanship with several guylines...only complaint is that it doesn't reach the ground fully and the edges of the tent will get damp near the base if the fly is not fully guyed. Tent packs small and neatly in its carrying bag, makes a great foundation for the bottom of the pack on camping trips. Overall, great price, great value. Loving all purchased products from Stoic.

    First Serious Test

      I've used this on several over-nighters now and a couple car camps, but up until this last weekend, my SAC bargain hadn't been seriously tested. While camped in the North Cascades we had a nasty little storm system blow in on our final night. Wind gusts were easily upwards of 50 MPH, and they pelted my tent with heavy PNW rain for hours. Finally, around day light, some rain dripped in through the vestibules, especially on the side facing the wind. I had set up to face the wind with the foot end of the tent, but the wind came in from a different direction the final night...lousy mountains and their unpredictable weather. All in all I am very pleased with my hundred buck tent. The fact that it survived that one night alone totally pays for the tent and then some. It looked like the tent was going to implode on itself, but it stood its ground. If you know it's going to storm and can set up with account for wind direction, I think it can can handle some hefty storms. I'll be sure to take a few extra stakes to guy it down better next time.

      As for the product itself, it might be a 2 person tent if you are sleeping a pair of professional cyclists or perhaps horse jockeys, but for normal folks, it would be a bit tight. I make other sacrifices (less clothes) to account for the extra weight of this over most ultra light one person tents. I like extra living space and the vestibules are priceless, especially while trying to pack up the rest of your stuff that shouldn't get wet in a storm. The included footprint is a nice bonus, but I wish it was a bit bigger.

      First Nights

        Spent just two nights in the T2 in ID. The initial footprint is surprisingly small yet the fly/vestibule seems massive. The poles and fly have deliberate ways to erect yet remain simple. The "two man" status is certainly with almost no gear. I slept alone comfortably with much gear. A great one person tent who enjoys a ton of gear or the ability to sneak in a repenting bivy'er when the weather turns. Felt sold. Packs down small enough yer feels just a tad heavy for just one person but very manageable. For one hundo, can't beat it. Including the footprint is a big plus.

        Biggest bang for your bucks!

          It may not be the best tent, but considering the price I got at SAC (for about $100), it's the best value you can get! Especially when the tent comes with footprint, which is worth another 30-40 bucks. I used to buy a tarp, it's cheap but bulky and heavy. So far I didn't find another one with a better value (with same quality) yet.

          We camped for 7 days in the past 3 weeks. There's one night we had down pour for the whole night, and we stayed bone dry inside.

          The size is perfect for 2. My girlfriend and I are both at 5'7 and under 150 lbs. It would be a squeeze if both persons are big, then you may need a 3-person tent. Otherwise this would work just fine.

          A few minor flaws: one is the storage pockets inside. It's triangle shaped and my stuff tends to slide out from the bottom of the pocket. Another one is the vestibule. It's really low and if you reach for the zipper to open it in the morning, it's very hard not to get your back wet from the condensation underneath the rain fly. But not a deal breaker to me anyway.

          Overall I'd give it a 5-star considering the value I got!

          Biggest bang for your bucks!

          This one is a keeper.

            This tent is a bargain and easily worth more than I paid. Easy to set up and well ventilated, the Templum 2 handily weathered three very intense summer storms in northern Wisconsin. The rain fly is well designed and creates a small gear storage area on either side of the tent. Due to the high winds and pounding rain, a few drops found there way through the rain fly roof vent even though it was closed.

            This one is a keeper.

            Held up great in my lean to in VT

              this tent was great and i was able to set it up at 3 in the morning with just a headlamp. not to mention I was rather inebriated. easy set up. if you are one person trying to go ultra light it is prob a little to big but perfect for one person if your a big dude like me. havent really exposed it to the elements yet but it worked great in VT in my lean to in the summer.

              Stoic Templum 2 Tent

                I’m impressed with the Stoic Templum 2 Tent. The moment I set it up the first time I fell in love with this tent. Right price, right quality, everything about it is good. I use it and highly recommend this tent.

                Great Backpacking Tent

                  Myself, my fiance, and our 60lb dog just finished a 3 day, 22.3 mile loop through the Comanche Wilderness over the 4th of July weekend and this tent was great! It fit well in my Alps Orizaba 3900 pack. We fit our mummy self-inflating sleeping pads, our mummy bags (I'm 6'3" and she's 5'10") and the dog slept on her blanket at our heads, granted it was more comfortable with the dog more on her side than mine. We both could sleep on our backs and not fight for elbow room. The footprint fits the tent perfectly (it is unidirectional since the head is wider than the foot) and kept the tent floor clean and puncture-free. The gear loft is good for drying socks and placing a LED Lantern. The fly secures to the tent very well with velcro in 6 places and clips at each corner and adds a lot of structure, but i would have liked to have had 4 more stakes for the guy lines in case we needed them. The vestibules fit our packs and our boots with plenty of room and protection. The tent sets up and tears down in about 5 minutes. The closed pole sleeves at the foot end make it very simple. A tip for getting the poles in the grommets, make sure the pole is seated completely in the pocket at the foot end and pull from where the grommeted strap meets the tent, NOT from the grommet itself or further down. That makes it harder and put a lot of stress on the grommet, resulting in tearout.

                  Nice light tent

                    Great light weight tent. Packs up pretty small, could definitely use it on a backpacking trip. It's not huge, probably wouldn't fit 2 adult males, but for a guy & a girl or a person & their dog it's good.

                    Easy to assemble, only 2 poles. The rain fly just attaches and doesn't have any poles. The fly is nice b/c it doesn't just lay on the tent walls, it can be staked to pull it outward and create a little space to put your bags under to keep them dry but keep them out of your tent floor space.

                    Overall good buy.

                    Stoic tent - good tent for the dollar . . .

                      Excellent tent for the dollar and were excellent in delivering my order (Tent / sleeping bag). However, Canadian buyers beware! The Canadian border may hit you hard with tariffs, taxes and anything else they feel discourages cross border shopping.

                      Great, affordable tent

                        Snagged this up on S&C for a great price (funny thing is, it was sitting in my BC cart for about a week, ready to buy full-price, haha). In any case, here are some +'s and -'s:

                        + Affordable
                        + Gear loft included
                        + Footprint included
                        + 2 doors
                        + Seam sealed above the ground

                        - Unless you're a lean or small person, 2 people in this will be snug. It's more like a 1.5.
                        - Takes a bit of muscling to get the poles into their pockets. Not sure my GF would have been able to do it (though this was on first set up, perhaps it will limber up a bit).

                        Overall, IMHO, it was EASILY worth the money if you find it on S&C one day. Heck, I probably would have bought it full-price if I hadn't stumbled across it. So if you're looking for an affordable tent that performs, pull the trigger on this guy.

                        Cheap is good, cheap is bad

                          Price is right if you can snag it for $99. Love the design / easy up and down, but the metal ring that the pole end pops into busted my first night. Seems minor, but makes me wonder if it'll last more than a year or so in any kind of regular use. Going to exchange for a more durable system.

                            Really nice tent, took the scouts out, they set it up quickly, I love that the price is inclusive of the footprint, reflective fabric on zippers is nice, 2 doors is a must, ventilation galore, did I mention being able to see the lightening bug/fireflys all around us, which was nice. I'd buy another one, great warranty. No, i'm not affiliated with Stoic or Backcountry.

                            Just took this tent out for it's first...

                            Just took this tent out for it's first trip last night, and it stormed the whole night through. The only problem we experienced was where the rainfly stakes out to form 2 vestibules. Both my friend and I felt a few drips through the mesh doors that apparently came from the zippers on the vestibules- apparently water had leaked through the zippers and dripped in through the mesh. Has anyone else experienced this with this tent? Do you think it's worth returning?

                            Hey I like this tent a lot, but that the $99 price. Any idea when it's going back on sale?

                            What are your thoughts on it as an actual 2 person tent? too snug?

                            I actually think there is plenty of space, this is a very fair 2-person tent! The design makes it pretty roomy inside in terms of height, and the double doors/vestibules mean that you never have to crawl over your buddy either.
