Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I bought this tent with high hopes, but the tent never even made out into the backcountry. I set it up at home, and was so disturbed with what I saw I returned it immediately. The ridge pole will bend and warp with just the slightest force. When I clipped the inner tent body to the pole it warped the ridge pole in such a way that it would bend down to the clips, and then rise up in between the adjoining clips. I understand that may be hard to understand, but imagine the ridge pole looked like a roller coaster bending up and down. When the fly was attached it would cause the ridge pole to collapse if tightened more than just snug. After about twenty minutes of adjusting the pitch I finally got the tent to look half way decent, but it would only take a slight adjustment to send the whole thing into disarray. I can't imagine this tent even being able to handle the slightest storm. Also, I'm 5'9", and when laying in the tent without a sleeping pad my head was against the mash door and my feet were about 1" from the rear wall. If I was on a sleeping pad I would imagine my feet would be in contact with the rear wall, and if there were two people in the tent both people's feet would cause the fly to bulge out. This tent was made well, but I feel the design has much to be modified. I found many poor reviews of this tent online, but purchased it anyways. In my opinion the reviews were spot on, and I should have listened to them. I have owned many tents from MSR, Mountain Hardwear, Sierra Designs, Exped, Black Diamond, and The North Face. These tents range from ultralight tents to mountaineering bomb shelters, and this tent was by far the most unstable, and poorly designed of the bunch. I know there are some reviews on this website that speak highly of this tent, I'm not sure what saw, but I'm shocked they even brought this tent to market.
