Skyledge™ 2 DP is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from tent great fly NFG Loved the tent. Fly was OK until I erected the the tent about 5 yrs after I used it the one time. Fly door zippers were "welded" on one side and sewn on the other. I'm talking 1/2 of each door zipper. Also the fly to pole clips are welded to the fly, not sewn. Bottom line -welds failed, zipper and clips came apart from the fly. Fly no longer available. Good tent, no fly. Got a rebate for the purchase price which won't replace the tent. I own a 1975 vintage North Face Mtn tent. All still good. Also a 1989 North Face VE-25- still all good. It's sewn, not welded. MH tents NFG

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tent design I bought this tent for week-long backpacks with my spouse. So, we wanted a 2-person and very lightweight tent with 2 entrances. We hate crawling over each other when we gotta get up in the middle of the night. This tent filled the bill. It takes a little time to get used to because of the pole-anchoring devices. But once you have that down, the tent goes up fast. I've had a lot of tents over the years, and my biggest complaint has been with a lightweight tent's no-seeum netting coming in contact with the fly. The netting would almost always come to touch the fly wall at some point during the night to cause condensation on the inside of the fly to drip down on the occupant. Not so with this tent. The designer has taken care so that the mesh inner wall stays tight and away from the fly. Reliable and dry shelter, and tight in the wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent, though cozy I have had this tent for two years now. I have spent the better part of 30 nights in it. I love it. There are a few quirks to the tent that take time to get use to, but after a few nights you will get use to them. One of the main ones is getting the sides right. The head wall and foot wall are different sizes, so make sure to set up the footprint, tent, and rain-fly all oriented in the correct direction. Not difficult but common mistake. I primarily use it as a very roomy one person tent. It is light enough to fill this roll well. I am 6 foot and can sit up easily in the tent and have no problem fitting laying down. If you are seeking protections from bugs, you will more than likely not feel cluster phobic at all in the tent. The air circulation in the tent wonderful. If you zip up the fly fully it cuts down any wind, not tent flapping either (maybe in really high winds there might be a little but nothing yet for myself). On hot nights adjusting the vestibules you can always find some air movement. With two people it is cozy, but if you don't have a ton of gear, their is plenty of space in the vestibules of everything. If you like bringing everything and the kitchen sink, this tent might not be for you. Honestly there is very little that I can see as a downside to the tent. I have yet to have any problems with it. After two years, I really dont expect to find anything new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent SMALL INSIDE I just wanted to provide some input to those sitting on the fence regarding this tent. First off yes I share the concerns regarding all of the plastic clips but otherwise this tent rocks! Beware it is 27 SqFt inside the same area size as the ultralight so you will be Very snug. My wife and I bought it set it up on the living room floor crawled inside and in about 2 minutes said we are getting the Skyledge 3P. No real extra room what so ever for gear, getting dressed, or hanging out in. If ALL you want to do is sleep in it then go for it. However; I would feel cramped if I had to ride out a major storm or serious rainy day inside. As a solo tent it would be the absolute best, for a couple I think it is still a little too snug for our liking. Hopefully this will help those head scratching about will it be big enough for a couple. Happy Trails

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well done A great tent, that is well built and spacious for the weight. Of course it is tight for 2 people but that is what you signed up for with an ultralight tent. The extra pole across the top sure makes more head and shoulder space while not adding much weight. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent I think this is an excellent tent and I have had 6 tents. All widely used and abused. Great engineering. I am writing primarily to address the Dry Pitch feature. You must realize that the Jakes feet can be removed from the tent body and then used with the poles, fly and footprint for DP. The hooks attached to the MH supplied footprint attach to the Jakes feet. Not evident in the instructional videos. SF...Lynne

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good expedition-length summer tent My only concern is how long the plastic will last. The rest I really like, the design, the way the fly is spread out above the tent doors, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generally fine I think I have a slightly older version. The tent is well-made and functional. I like the lightweight materials. To me, it's seriously small for 2 people. I'm 5'6", average build, and my 5'3" petite friend also said it was small. The 4-star rating is due to two things: * The cross pole for the vestibule doesn't sit well in the reinforced areas of the vestibule. * Something is forcing the floor of the tent to pull up, causing the usable floorspace to be even smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent I have had this tent for one season and it has worked great. I have used it with the trips I lead and on personal trips, going into my second season with it, I love it. This tent, though a two person, does not have many draw backs as a one person tent. Since it is so light and as a trip leader the extra room is nice for the extra gear, I could not think of a better tent. As a one person tent, I can set it up very fast and with little hassle by myself. The only thing that messes with set up is that one side is a bit longer than the other so make sure to get everything the right way round so the fly doesnt flap all night. Easy to do once you know what to look for. I have only used it as a two person tent a few times. It still does its job great, but know it is very cozy. Still a great tent but make sure not to have too much gear. there is not much space in the wings and very little in the tent with you. There is plenty of space but not a ton. The zippers are holding up great, no signs of any problems in the near future. Fly is still perfectly water proof. Stake wires are well designed and work wonderfully. The special corner pole hokes work great, and are holding up great. Honestly, I have yet to have a major problem with the tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy set up and functional My wife and I took this tent on a 9 day trip into the Beartooth Wilderness in MT. A lot of this trip was around 9,000 plus feet with wind. Tent was fast to put up and when staked withstood wind, rain and snow. The double vestibule is a great feature as the tent is "snug" but fine for a couple and 2 Boston Terriers. The vestibule and double entrance made it easy for us to be comfortable. Great product and easy to carry. With stakes, no bag and a groundcloth it is 3lbs 15 oz. Best tent I have used of the 7 or 8 backpack tents we have owned.
