Awesome Four Season Tent

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used my tent the day after Christmas near the summit of Hunter Mountain in the Catskill Mountains. The low that night was around ten degrees and my tent held up great. A quality sleeping pad and sleeping bag of course helped but for the price of this bag I was very impressed. I can't wait to get back out there and really test it out some more.

Solid Tent, Spacious, Warm

I've put it through the wringer

This tent is incredible and you really can't go wrong with it. I took it up to Isle Royale National park twice now and one night in May we recieved a solid 4 inches of heavy wet snow. The tent held up very well. Something I also greatly enjoyed was that on that same snowy night, we were able to cook our food under the awning. This did two things... it kept our bellies full and circulated the excess heat between the tent and wind-shell helping to melt snow off of the outside and warm the tent. I highly recommend!

Good bang for the buck

I've used it several times

Used this tent 5 nights in Montana. It kept us warm and dry. Held up well it high winds. Easy to setup and not bad to take down. Like the snap hooks on the poles - what an improvement over the old tubes you had to thread the poles through.

Hasn't failed me so far

I've used it several times

I took this tent to Bishop in 15 degree weather, w/ 30 mph winds it was probably below zero. This tent kept us pretty warm. With the guy lines the wind was bearable and I had a tent heater in case I couldn't stand it but just didn't end up needing to use it. Haven't tested this tent in the snow or rain (hope I don't have to) but I suspect the result would be the same and it would keep me pretty warm and dry when all is said and done. Well worth the price considering so many other 4 season tents are double the price.

A true surprizing tent

Size wise this is almost like a huge building. The two vestibule are well sized, the one with a double zipper access is really ingenous and it is just too bad the other one does not have the same design. Well built, extremely well priced and truly capable of withstanding the hardest elements, as my night stay under winds of 60 mph had barely any impact on the tent, and the rain that came with it never pass through the fabric. The footprint makes the tent even better and is a must in my book. Alps did a truly surprising tent with this model. Ok it is not the lightest, the size in the bag is significant, but it is worth repackging it in as one can reduce the length by about 3 inches, a worthy gesture. The spikes are of nice quality compared to my Mystique 2.0 I have from the same company. Worth every penny and extremely well built. Buy without hesitation if one needs a great tent on a tighter budget. One cannot be disappointed here.

Like it for what it is!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This tent should get a rating between 4 and 5. Why did I round up? The price. This is admittedly my first 4 season tent. I got it (despite comments about the difficulty setting it up). I wanted something a bit rugged, warm and completely sealed from mesh. The positive. This 3 person is relatively roomy. Two people will fit no problem. That's the rule with tents. Take the suggested number and subtract one. It has great headroom. The vestibule space is excellent. The poles are thick. The walls and fly seem thicker than a 3 season tent. This seems like a pretty secure tent, overall. Being able to zip up all of the mesh and having that control is excellent. The top opening is great. There are so many side pockets. Basically, the whole length of each side is broken up into many pockets. Getting this tent under $200, really seals the deal. The negative. The set up (and take down) is cumbersome and takes a while. Part of this can be attributed to the added poles, stakes and guy outs but it probably could have been a bit easier regarding the fly poles. If you put the fly on without attaching the nearest clips, you can insert the pole with the fly on which will help in windy conditions. I can't imagine putting the poles in first then trying to attach it in wind. Hopefully, I will get faster. Setting up w/o the fly is fairly quick. The floor is only as thick as my other 3 season tents. I used my Extreme 3 floor saver since the dimensions were almost the same. This seems a minor issue. I couldn't get this tent fly to be tight. I didn't have heavy winds so I can't comment on any draw-back. The cross pole and guying might suffice. This tent is tough to stuff in the bag. Overall, I'm not sure one could beat this tent in overall value. Granted it is not an expedition tent but nor does it cost $500-800. It is a 4 season tent. I think most 4 season tents are more time consuming to put up. Being a tunnel design might add to this. Two entrances are helpful but not as much as an advantage it might be on a more rectangular tent. If you plan on using the 4 extra bottom loops on the fly as additional tie downs, plan on getting 4 very short guy lines and additional stakes. The tent came with 16 (used 15) y stakes. They are the shorter 7 inch. Some things to keep in mind: 4 season tents are heavier and more complicated to set up. They also shouldn't be used in the summer. They should be called 3 season winter tents! So, ignore any negative comments on these things.

Great tent

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got this tent for two of my friends so they can start winter camping! Her review on first setting it up is that it is pretty spacious (fits two people and a dog nicely). The vestibules come in handy for storing extra gear. Also, it was very easy to set up and only took a few minutes.

Pretty Good

I've used it several times

This is a pretty great tent for winter camping. The vestibules on the side are great for storage. There is also screen pockets lining the inner wall of the tent. Haven't used it yet with 3 people in the winter but its a great tent for 2 people with lots of gear. My biggest complaint is the way the tent fly is set up with poles that hold it up. The fly has sleeves the poles go through, and they can be a pain to take-out. Other than that the weight is the only other concern. Don't know how this compares with other tents, but it feels heavy. Beware the floor is not completely waterproof either. For the price on sale its great.

Love this tent in all seasons!

I've put it through the wringer

I bought this tent in 2015 and my partner and I are still in love with it. We usually go backpacking about once or twice a month and this has held up to everything Mother Nature has thrown our way - snow, sleet, downpours, 30 mph winds - on all terrains. Here are our favorite aspects: - spacious enough to spread out and play card & board games with 4 people when it's pouring (yes, we bring games backpacking) - holds and traps our body heat, even in 15-20° temps. On average I'd estimate it to be about 5° warmer in the tent at night. Last weekend we had some morning sun. It was 50° outside and 70° in tent! If you do get too hot, just take the rain fly off. There's a lot of mesh! - Storage space lines both walls and there's a mesh "attic" that we use to put all our electronics and our tent light. There's a space for everything we bring which makes finding stuff easy and keeps it all off the ground. - 2 huge vestibules with ample space for packs and boots. Very easy to cook under also when it's pouring. We have a tripod stool from Alps that we sometimes bring and the vestibules are tall enough to sit on that and take our boots off. Of course, there's been a few snags: - Sometimes there's condensation issues. We took a couple friends snowshoeing/backpacking and it sleeted/snowed the whole time. We all piled in this tent and we could see the moisture evaporating off of us. We vented the top and unzipped the windows, but it must have been too much because the walls were dripping by the time we were ready for bed. It also felt like the floor seeped a bit, perhaps because we were on snow and didn't use a footprint perhaps? I will say that's not typical, though. - it's a bit on the heavy side, but the majority of the weight seems to be in the rainfly. The poles and stakes are pretty light so one of us takes the rainfly, the other the poles & tent. We usually carry between 25-35 lbs (with water and food) and this doesn't make our packs too heavy. - the stakes can be challenging in mud and snow, slipping out quite easily, but I feel like that may be true for most stakes. We just put a big rock one the loose ones and it works fine. - it takes up a lot of space with the vestibules out, which can be an issue in small campsites. To make it small, but keep the rainfly, we guy out the exterior poles and let the vestibule hang down. Though this isn't ideal (it gets pretty muddy in the rain) it works in a pinch. A few other notes - we haven't seam sealed it, but it seems to do fine in downpours. We also haven't had to use all the guy lines - just a few when we were out in some high winds and it worked well. I agree with one of the other reviewers that it's hard to get the rainfly tight everywhere, but that hasn't caused problems for us. Overall we feel like we're living in a palace out on the trail with this. And the price point makes it a phenomenal deal!

Great for the money

I've used it several times

I bought this tent a year ago and have used it about a half-dozen times, only for winter camping. The quality of the materials is really good for a <$300 tent. The fabric is fine and the poles are good. I've had no problems with anything related to the materials. The vestibules are quite large, so there's plenty of room for gear. I've used this tent under some pretty harsh conditions; high winds, heavy snow, etc. As for negatives: I do a lot of solo trips and this tent is a little cumbersome for one person to set up in the wind. The ends of the poles come out way too easily and that is inconveniet and a bit frustrating. Even with using all the guy points it's hard to get the rainfly taught, there's always a little sag. However even in high wind and heavy snow it wasn't a big issue. Yes, there are better 4-season tents to be had, but not for this price.

Amazing tent - WORTH IT

I bought this tent needing a four season tent for all the winter camping I do. I generally only get to camp for fun in the winter because I'm a Wildland firefighter in the summers and do not get much time off during then. This is by far worth it's weight in gold. 10 pounds that is. It may be a little heavier but the weight is well worth it. It has plenty of space inside and the vestibules are perfect for me and my hike partners gear plus my Siberian husky, unless he sneaks inside.. Which the inside is spacious enough to sit up and move around with out being to cramped with my partner and my dog. It has tons of pockets for gear and a ventilation system that still keeps in heat but let's condensation out and keeps rain out. I currently don't have a picture of me winter camping in it because the first time the weather was so bad my camera broke. But I did snap one of me using it this spring. This tent held up to all weather conditions and didn't let a single drop of water through. Woke up in a two in puddle and I was completely dry after a flash rain came through and soaked us in the snow.

Heavy Duty Well Made Tent

I've used it several times

I have TheTazmanian 2.I just used it on a 4 day 3 night New Years backpacking trip and it kept me warm and dry.We had some light snow and temps down to 17 degrees with 15 mph winds and some higher gusts and it didn't flinch and thats without using any guy lines.I know that it's not an ultra light but sometimes I would rather haul some extra weight knowing that I have a piece of equipment that I can count on!It's roomy enough for all my gear to fit inside the tent and it's nice to have the two vestibules for added weather protection and gear storage if you bring a friend.The two doors are nice also and the zippers work flawlessly and you can access the roof vent from the inside.I almost forgot to mention it has six storage pockets on each side wall not to mention the included gear loft.I did have to buy the footprint separately but it is well worth it! The fly is a little tricky to work with but I think it will just take practice in getting the poles in and out of the sleeves. I look forward to using this tent on many trips in the future! The Trail Mule

Hi Robert, I'm from Canada and want to buy this tent, which comes without the footprint. Please let me know where you bought the foot print for this. Many thanks. Cheers!

Great value

I've used it several times

I wouldn't take this up Everest but I trust it at high altitude in the winter with some serious snow. I slept through about 8" overnight (didn't bang it off during the night) and it was fine. Fabrics are heavy duty. Nice and warm (-10 F, windy but not crazy windy), but no more condensation than I'd expect with my summer tent. I haven't had any other 4-season tents to compare to but I'm happy with this one.

Weathered Iceland Well

I've used it several times

Right off the bat we were able to field test this tent in the rainy fall weather of southern Iceland. It fared brilliantly against the rain and wind, with no issue. The vestibules are large enough for good-sized packs, the removable gear loft is an added bonus, and the overall size is very comfortable. The packed tent is quite large and heavy, but nothing unreasonable for an all-season tent. It's unfortunate the footprint is sold separately, but also not out of the ordinary. We were pleased and will certainly take it on any trips where weather might be an issue!


Fantastic photo! I really enjoy the Aurora. :)

Does well for Weekend camping

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Update - 1/7/2015 I took this on a Scout Winter Campout in Northern Michigan. Temperatures were in the teens with Wind-chill close to Zero and some snow. The tent performed well. No condensation on the inside of the tent and It was roomy for myself and gear. The tent breathes extremely well, although it would have been nice if the outer tent went all the way to the ground. Still, I stayed warm and dry. In my initial review, the poles are not the best quality, but if you take care to set up the tent, you should be alright. I also replaced the guy lines with reflective paracord. Still for the price, you can't beat it. Original Post. - I bought this tent as a replacement for my Hilleberg Nammatj 3 tent that was burned by a vandal at a local Metro Park while camping with my scout troop this summer. Hilleberg tents are probably the best 4 season tents on the market. I have also used Eureka Alpinelites and K-2 XTs. Which are fine tents. That being said, This is a low end 4 season tent. I saw this tent for a ridiculously low price and had to re-evaluate the use for my 4 season tent as I primarily winter camp with my scout troop and will not be doing any alpine camping. That being said, this is a huge winter tent and would be best suited for late Fall and Early Spring camping. I believe it could handle some snow, but not sure about heavy snow or ice unless you shake the tent periodically. I would not recommend taking this into the back country during winter, but on weekend camping at a scout camp or similar. The material is light, including the faintly as well as the poles. When I tore down the tent, you have to be careful with the poles as the pole caps tend to pop out and you have to take care putting them back in. I have set up this tent in my backyard a few times and have seam sealed it. The tent I huge and could easily fit 3 people, possibly 4 smaller scouts. It also has 2 huge vestibules to store gear. There is room for my Shepard-Lab and 2 backpacks in the front one. It also has nice pockets inside and a gear loft. The tent is also very easy to set up. Just be careful with the poles. As with most tents, it would be worth wile to buy new ground pegs instead of using the ones supplied by the manufacturer. I would recommend that with all tent's that you seam seal all seams and attach all guy lines. I will update my review when I test this in the field. UPDATE - I took it weekend camping in late October where temperatures ranged from 5o degrees to 20 degrees with some wind and this tent kept me warm and dry. there was also no trouble with condensation with everything closed except for the vents in the rainfly. I look forward to using it in a couple of weeks in colder temperatures and the snow.


Hell yes it was helpful.

A picture is worth a thousand words, especially if it's a picture of a 4 season tent in the snow!

Thank you for the stellar review!


How much does this weigh, and does it have a storage bag and/or footprint with it?

It weighs 8 lbs 10 oz, and it does come with a storage bag but, no foot print. Bill Porreca 801-736-6398.

Footprints can be found on Amazon from $30-$60> I bought one there and it covers the tent, but not the vestibules. It appears to be the same material and weight as the tent floor. It also has a taped seam running through it, so it would be a good idea to seam seal it
