2 problems with the drifter I didn't feel I could trust the ball - in - socket tent pole end attachment - and also the hooky grabber fly nylon deal look like something I would break under adverse conditions.The other reason I sent the tent back is that I am a tall person and there is no guy line attachment point for the fly at either the head or the foot.Thanks for refunding my purchase price though.chas May 19, 2013
Decent 2 person tent This tent is fairly easy to setup with just two poles that are attached. It is also pretty modular with different options for fly, ground tarp and tent combinations. The connector at the corners has a clip for the ground tarp and a buckle for the fly along with a hole for the tent poles. Everything fits together nicely, though I would worry that the plastic solution may not be beefy enough for extended abuse.Also note that the width of the tent is pretty small making it fairly cozy for two larger people.

good basic tent This is a perfect 2 man tent for many uses. Holds up in the rain. Easy set up. Vestibules big enough for your gear. April 1, 2013
