Positive Customer Reviews
This tent is very lightweight, and easy to set up and take down. The rain fly pole seems tight at first, but is easy to get into the pockets if you brace one end against your hip and pull on the other end to bend the pole slightly. The tent is very stable without stakes; I didn't use them in five days of backpacking.
If you are looking to get a relatively light-weight tent for hiking, look no more. This tent presents effortless set up and is also free standing, so if you're backpacking on firm terrain, you will not need to worry about bent tent spikes.
This tent far exceeded my expectations. It is well worth the price. Excellent for use on backpacking trips.
Negative Customer Comments
There are almost no negative reviews of this tent. Below are some negative comments we have found.
Had to stake it down when it got windy, though: the thing's like a wind sail with its rain guard on.
A little too heavy for someone trying to minimize weight. I added a thin plastic ground cloth and I think the tent was around 4.5 pounds.
I bent the rainfly pole putting it in as it's a little too long.
