Why people love it

  • Has ventilation for hot climates and insulation for cold climates
Drawbacks, not dealbreakers

Provides limited storage space and is slightly on the heavy side.


Features: If you're looking for a tent you can carry with you on a backpacking trip, this is a good option to consider. At just 5.5 pounds, it's a fairly lightweight option (though some people find it a bit heavy when added to the rest of their gear).

However, you will never complain about the sleeping space. You can fit extra-tall people (up to 6' 8") in the tent without feeling cramped, and though it's only designed to fit 2 people, you will be able to move around and store a moderate amount of gear overnight.

Durability is definitely one of the "pros" of this tent. It's made with durable polyurethane, but has a thick polyurethane coating to ensure that it's fully weatherproof. The tent is designed for 3-season use, and it can handle cold, heat, rain, and wind with no problem. Zip it tight, and it sleeps about 15 degrees warmer than outside. Open up the tent walls, and you can let a cool breeze through the vent mesh without letting in the bugs.

It's easy to setup and take down, making it one of your best options if you're planning a long-distance backpacking trip.

Price: At $120, this is a reasonably priced tent considering how long it will last. It's pricier than your average 2 person tent, but you definitely get your money's worth with the limited lifetime warranty.
