Great for family backpacking
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- True to size
Weâve been backpacking with a burly 3-person Marmot tent for years. Now that weâre taking our baby along for the ride and space and weight is at a premium, my husband and I wanted a tent that was huge enough for 3-4 people and ultra light. Guys. This is it. We bought the bug mesh insert to go with the shelter, and Iâm VERY glad we did for our current purposes (baby containment). It did make the tent a lot smallerâwe tried having the two adults on one side of the trekking pole center and the baby on the other, but the mesh was ALL up in my husbands face with him on the outside edge and he hated it. So baby was on the edge, I was in the middle, and husband had the whole other half to himself. It felt very ample and spacious. I think we could fit another small kid in there (on the other edge) without issue and still use the mesh insert. Once the kids are bigger, though, weâd definitely ditch the insert unless absolutely necessary. You *can* fit four adults in there, but the mesh makes for a very claustrophobic experience for those on the outer edge. Shelter was easy to set up and take down, using a set of trekking poles. It did get warm at night but you can open the doors for airflow. Tent seems very rugged and durable. And best of all, I can say with total confidence that it can withstand an 11-month-old pole dancing and climbing on the poles without difficulty. Iâm SO glad we bought this for family backpacking. Going from essentially a 6lb tent to a 3lb tent is amazing. And once we leave the insert behind, itâll be even lighter.
