Reviews

Optic™ 3.5 5 5 1 1
best tent I've ever had in 25+ yrs I bought this tent about 2 months ago, have slept in it probably 15 times so far, and cannot stop raving about it. Well done Mountain Hardwear! The two doors next to each other is so perfect, it's hard to know where to begin when raving about it. First, even with the rain fly on, the airflow is impeccable. We keep both rainfly doors open at night, and we get great air flow and stay dry in everything except the heaviest of downpours. One door is on the non-straight sidewall side so you can stand up in the doorway with your feet still inside the tent. The door on the long side, which is the straight sidewall, is large and easy to slip in and out of. The straight sidewalls gives more interior space, which is great. The ceiling height is perfect. I'm 5'11" and I can sit on my heels in the tent and not have my head hit the top. The built in gear pockets are a nice addition and saves money from having to buy a gear loft. It's incredibly easy to set up and take down. I can set it up in about 2 minutes and take it down and have it packed in about 3 minutes. The one thing I would say ... I'm not sure it's a 3.5 person size. My boyfriend and I sleep in it on our two large poco pads and the dog, and though there is plenty of space for all of our stuff too, I wouldn't put a 3rd person in there. It would be too cramped. Maybe if they were shorter people, kids, or didn't have such large sleeping pads it would work better. July 7, 2014
