Not bomber, but good. Purchased the SuperMega UL 1 to replace my heavier bivy sack. More room is nicer for longer trips. I used the tent on an Arctic Alaska packraft trip, so lightweight was critical. The weather was good, so it wasn't a true test of strength; however, one issue was clear, the rain fly doesn't go close enough to the ground and the sides are too far open. The worst weather was ~20mph wind and rain. The wind would blow the rain into the tent under the sides of the tent. Also, the flap over the entry zipper would blow open in the wind, so rain would trickle through the zipper. If the wind blows sideways on the tent, then the center bends over dramatically; however, I don't think it was every near breaking. The tent feels like tissue paper, so I was worried when it got windy, which led to sleepless nights.Summary: good tent for mellow weather without much wind. August 16, 2013
