Trango™ 2 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trango 2 I love this tent. I purchased this tent in Kodiak Alaska back in 1999 after an off brand tent fell flat to the wind. I have used this tent for backpacking (splitting the tent between two people), 8400 mile motorcycle trip through Alaska, alpine hunting & beach camping amongst brown bear. It fits two people and two Australian Shepards or two people with packs. The overhead storage is great for my glasses. The rain fly comes down almost to the ground and keeps you nice and dry. The vestibules keep your boots and gear dry. I highly recommend the footprint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with my purchase I bought my Trango 2 in 1999 (one of the first years they had it available, I think) and have been stoked about it since. Back in the day I took it up Rainier a few times, as well as North Cascades and the Olympics. I knew it wasn't a fast and light tent when I got it, but for bombproof and quick simple set up I got more than my money's worth. With the gear loft and footprint it is just under 11lbs. packed, and the last time I was up Rainier, I split it with two friends (yes, sleeps three pretty comfortably, the vesti's get pretty full of gear though!) and it was no problem. Warm in the Winter, breezy in the Summer I bought this tent because I wanted something I didn't have to fuss with and that I knew I wouldn't have to buy again. When the weather comes in I know I'm getting a good nights sleep and no joke. The only drawback is looking like you have way too much tent at the park campgrounds... . Have been using this tent for over 15 years and have no complaints. If you know that you are going to hit wind or cold, this tent is a sure bet; that's why they call it four season- if it won't be cold or wet overnight the body and poles aren't anything to worry about between two people and you can always do the fly/poles/footprint too. Thanks, and good to see MH is still making this design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really bomber tent I've had my tent for a few years and have put it through the paces. I can say without hesitation that it does exactly what you want an expedition tent to do, which is protect you in camp from horrible weather conditions. Its been up Shasta, Baker, Adams, Hood, South Sister and Whitney with me and has always performed. I use it regularly for winter snow camping trips in Minnesota and Canada. Its withstood driving rain, heavy snow, 50 mph wind storms and functions well in -35 F as well as 90 F. One night on Whitney was particularly wicked with the wind and snow just railing against the tent. The thing shook and howled but felt bombproof solid the whole night. The fabric is solid, the zippers burly and the poles are strong. My only critical feedback is that the thing is really heavy and really bulky. Mostly due to the fabric and not the other components. Hauling it up the mountain is arduous at best and I normally have to split the thing into components and share the load amongst my crew. If you're looking for alpine fast and light, then you'd want to skip this tent and go with a bivy or something even more minimalist. The tent also takes a ton or time, a certain amount of engineering talent and determination to get it fully set up and staked out when you want it fully braced for bad weather. That's sort of the tradeoff you have to make when you find yourself in weather like that though so I wouldn't call that a real drawback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy ever! I work as a Camp Master for G adventures and Ocean Wide, both down on antarctica. I always get my own gear, the Trango 2 it´s just perfect for the job. No condensation at all, worm, plenty of room and pockets. I payed such a ridiculous price for it with different discounts that I cannot be more that happy. Great space on the vestibules. It fit a lot of gear, and my dog. But, for split boarding or backcountry skiing without a sled it´s a little to heavy. On long backpacking, more than 5 days, again it´s heavy, so what I do it´s share the weight with a buddy. With strong wind, over 30 knots, you have to tether it well, if not it´s too noisy. Great job on this one!
