Roomy, Warm, Perfect Fit Our first night camping in this tent was a dream. The temp dipped below 30 degrees F, so we were expecting a lot of condensation in the morning. Much to our surprise, we had little, if any. We were able to stash all our gear inside, plus the two of us, and still have enough room to stretch out and enjoy the night. The only downside is that it's a little hard to tie back the rain fly doors, and the angle of the doors to the tent itself can be at times slightly awkward. May 11, 2012
