Tent Survived a Death Valley Expedition This tent was put to the test on a 10 day expedition in Death Valley - with VERY high winds at night I tied my tent to trees and used every stake I had and then some to cement it into the ground! And it worked! Tent didn't move at all or get blown away for the entire time I was there. This is listed as a 2 person tent but if you are camping with all of your gear, it turns into a 1 person tent. I was thankful to have the tent to myself to be able to sleep comfortably amongst my gear, would have been hard to fit another person .. even if they didn't have gear. Also, the given tent stakes are rather flimsy, would HIGHLY recommend buying an additional set (as I would with any other tent) but this was a must, I bent 3 stakes the first night with out even pushing hard at all... other than that, great tent! cool color that blends in with wooded areas too!

Great tent except........ Great tent, very light weight and easy to set up. Both times it was used involved a few days of heavy rain, but stayed dry the entire time. As a previous reviewer mentioned the clips that attach too the poles are flimsy. One clip broke during the second use while setting up. I've had to use MH warranty services before in the past and I'm sure it will not be an issue to get replaced. February 23, 2014
Excellent Tent This is an awesome tent. Lightweight and durable enough for backpacking trip after backpacking trip. The quality is top notch and the design is flawless. I've owned and used many high quality tents over the years but this one stands out in a big way. This is the quickest and easiest tent I have ever pitched. The dry pitch option is great for pitching the tent in the rain or to shave some weight for minimal weight backpacking trips. The gear loft above the door in the tent is an added bonus. Plus, There are plenty of lashing points to hang gear from the top to dry out wet clothes, etc. I use this tent for myself + gear(75L pack) and it works out beautifully. February 12, 2014
Flimsy, but does the job This tent is fairly easy to set up and does a good job of keeping rain and condensation out. Something to note is that it is extremely flimsy. I'm terrified that I'm going to break it every time I set it up. The pegs are made of very thin aluminum and completely bent out of shape the first time I set up the tent. The soil was slightly gravelly and it was unavoidable. I would advise getting pegs that actually work even though they will be heavier. The little plastic clips for the poles on the corners of the tent are also very breakable. I kneeled on one before I even set it up and it shattered, which really sucked. So far, the poles and the fabric have held up well, although I am extremely careful with them. December 7, 2013
