Positive Customer Reviews

The Apex 2XT is light, easy to set up, break down, and repack, gets great ventilation, and holds up well to rain.
-- N.T.

I purchased this tent due to the fact it is light and portable, small, extremely quick and straightforward to pitch and take down, and i liked how low to the ground it sits.  Additionally it is extremely weather-proof. Two major storms, no water in the tent.
-- R.F.

I took this tent winter hiking/camping in Northern PA. This not only efficiently housed 2 grown men for 4 nights, but also had the protection for the gear. The vestibules are worth their weight in gold when it's snowing and windy.
-- K.J.

Negative Customer Comments

Bad vestibule design. The vestibule is doesn't provide a easy way to enter or exit the tent.
-- K.C.

Minor leak along zipper seam on one of the vestibules. In strong wind, some water enters through the side vent

You must seal or waterproof the rain fly or you will get wet.
