Super stoked about my 2P tent. It’s only a few ounces heavier than my beloved 15 year old 1P that I payed significantly more for even back then and obviously more spacious. I’ve also added the solid inner body to make it a legitimate 4 season option. Set up is a breeze and I’ve used it enough times in various conditions that I can report that the quality is stellar. What a value, highly recommended!
I’ve only gone on one overnight with this, but so far I am very happy with my purchase. Shipping to Canada was quick and the tent quality is great. The Lifetime Warranty and reviews I saw about customer service really sold me. I found out about the company through word of mouth, and consider myself lucky!
I have had this tent for about four years and have used it a handful of times. I was looking for a 1 person tent to replace my 2p 15-year-old Hubba Hubba tent as most of my trips are solo and reviews of the new Hubba's are absolutely dismal. This is not a bad tent. There are a couple of flaws that make it a little less comfortable and that require a bit of planning for.
Pros: Very well made. The quality and materials are above what I expected. It came with something like 14 stakes, enough to stake out all points and still have spare. It's very simple to put together. The poles are colour-coded so you know which end of the pole structure is for the front vs. the back. It comes with a groundsheet, which is a nice touch. One of the biggest pros of this tent is the size. I think it fills a niche that's missing in the backpacking world... size-wise, it's right between a 1p and a 2p. It is only about two inches narrower than my 2p Hubba Hubba.
Cons: The door design is a major flaw. If it is raining, there is zero chance that you can get in or out of the tent without getting the inside wet due to the slope of the door. The bottom slopes out quite a few inches past the top, and the tent's door flops down into the tent when opened. The vestibule provides no protection from rain unless it's closed, it does not overhang the door at all when it's opened. You can see this in the pictures here on the tent. The next problem is with the zipper on the fly. In heavy rain, the rain seeped down through the zipper and then right through the mesh and onto my sleeping bag. I did experience issues with the rain coming in up under the fly as well, so the following night pitched the fly closer but this severely reduced the breathability which resulted in a significant amount of condensation throughout the tent, to the point that in the morning, even the tent floor had a layer of condensation, which means so do did my sleeping pad and parts of my bag where I slipped off the mat during the night. The best way that I have found to deal with rain/condensation in this tent is to skate everything fully, open the small flap at the top of the back of the fly, and unzip the vestibule door about 2 - 3 inches. I used my poncho to cover my sleeping bag in case of seepage and managed to stay dry with no condensation buildup.
Things to keep in mind that I don't consider flaws: This tent has one loop for hanging something from the top. There isn't a way to string up a line to hang wet socks or anything like that. As an alternative, I would lay my damp socks on the tent under the fly.
For the price, this tent can't be beaten. If you are camping in places and during seasons where you don't expect a lot of rain, this tent is phenomenal for the price. I have another trip planned in September and have been extensively researching new tents and right now, considering the price of tents and the meager weight savings between tents of similar size, I will probably keep this tent and use it on my next trip. I would recommend this tent to anyone who doesn't want to pay $700 for a similar size tent, and who understands that it's not the best for rainy situations.
This tent is unreal. Where do I ever start? The quality for the price that you are paying is top notch. First time I used it it got a work out. Rained all night (a good amount to) and this thing held up with ease. Water beaded right off like nobody’s business. It is more like a 1 1/2 person tent than a 1P. So much room inside. Put my backpack in the tent because of the rain and It
still felt roomy. No claustrophobic feeling at all. If your on the fence about buying this. Trust me, do it
