Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family shelter Bought this in Aus, used in howling wind and pouring rain this weekend, up to mtb hardware stds, dry and solid. A couple of minor suggestions, some extra guy out points on the fly skirt, and grommets to seat the brow pole into the fly. Other than that this is a fantastic tent offering enough space for two adults and two messy kids easily, the dogs were not overly impressed with space in the vestibule, but you can't please everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Views! This is a great family tent with a lot of headspace for taller campers. Sturdy tent when staked down and can fit our family comfortably in. ( queen air mattress + 2 twins ). I really enjoy all the mesh and the setup of the doors, provides a great way to relax with a view without getting eaten alive by mosquitos during early summer trips. Would recommend for anyone needing more verticle height and a tent that can comfortably handle 2 adults and 2 kids. The tent itself goes up easy alone or with a little help. The clip that holds the two poles together in the top middle would be difficult for someone who is not quiet as tall as I am 6'3 but other than that setup is a snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family tent and survives the elements Took this bad boy out for Memorial Day weekend and had a nasty storm roll through with heavy downpours and high winds, but this thing didn't drop a leak and we felt very secure inside. My only gripe was the screen door looked to be frayed like something rough had been drug across it. Contacted CS and they quickly sent a new one. Gotta love MH support. This thing could not be easier to setup with three poles and your done. Breaking down is just as easy. Love the tent and would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optic 6 The tent felt very roomy for a six person tent and still might have room for a bit of gear. The construction was sturdy and would stand up to a decent gust with out much material flapping around. Only thing I would recommend if you purchase this tent is the screen entries are much easier if you zip from the bottom to the top. Because if how tight the fabric fits, the doors stretch a fair amount making it difficult to zip the other way. I pitched the tent alone before the rest of my group showed up in about 10 minutes. No troubles there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Camper I bought this tent so my family can camp in the Summer primarily. We had our first go this week and the tent worked flawlessly. It was large enough for two large air mattresses plus all of our bags. We had to be door flaps open the whole time and enjoyed the stars. It does get a little colder at night though. The zippers on the doors are smooth and precise with every opening/closing. The main door on the rain fly cannot be rolled up or down without opening the main door and stepping inside, but I'm only 5'9! Not sure why the footprint is not included, that would have been a nice touch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A SAIL IN THE WIND OK so I have been on a few trips in this tent now Bryce Canyon Utah, Zion National Park Utah, Canyon De Chelly Arizona... If your gonna camp in ANY WIND AT ALL leave this thing at home.... I spent hours trying to secure this tent so It wouldn't get damaged or just blow away... The stakes that come with it pull right out of the ground... You will need to find trees or big rocks to keep this thing from blowing away... This tent needs one or two more poles to help stabilize it as well as some way better tent stakes to help hold it to the ground... I am not stoked on this tent at all and I am a HUGE MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR lover I own their Trango 4 Expedition Tent and the Shifter 4 but this tent is not worthy of their name in my opinion !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for families! We have three daughters and all five of us can comfortably sleep in here with room to spare! The tent is huge! One adult can easily set up this tent while the other entertains the children. I am 5'10" and can stand straight up in the tent with plenty of room above my head. Great for changing clothes! The bottle opener on the tent fly is a fun added touch. The tent kept us dry during a heavy and windy rain storm. The vestibule has plenty of room for shoes and other items that need to stay dry but need to be out of the tent. The footprint is a nice add on. I am still using a Mountain Hardwear Glacier tent from 20 years ago. This Optic 6 is built with the same quality and I expect it to last just as long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tent is great quality Took it out camping in Alaska it was real easy to set up. I also bought the foot print to go under very nice. It rained all night never had a drop inside the tent, take down and set up was a breeze and is very roomy. I had a lot of people ask about it camping very nice looking tent also. Very pleased and I highly recommend this tent. The bag it comes in is big enough for the tent also did not have to fight with it to put it away.
