Pros:
  • Self contained
  • Large side door
Cons:
  • Aluminum tent stakes might be a little too lightweight. Some have reported bent stakes when using these

This tent uses a single pole system. This makes for easy, light weight traveling. Obviously, one pole isn't going to hold the tent up all by itself. There are guidewires used to stake down the tent. Integrated rainfly. Debated whether to consider this a benefit or not and decided to. There are some pros and cons to this setup. Obviously, makes for easier setup and take down which is a big advantage, especially if you are out in foul weather. The downside is that on the other weather extreme when it is hot out, you are not getting the circulation to keep the tent cool. For camping with two people you will want to store your gear outside the tent body between the rainfly and the tent body.

Extensive use of guidelines for setting up the tent. This goes back to the single pole system used. The tent requires a number of simple guidelines to position the tent. This is not a freestanding tent that you can setup without using guidelines. Single, large D shaped door making for easy access. It would be nice if there were 2 doors, of course. However, the size of the door - effectively the full side - makes for very easy access for two people in the tent. Especially considering that there is space between the tent body and rainfly where you can put all of your equipment like backpack, boots, hiking poles - whatever.

One nice extra feature is the vent at the end of the tent. Perfect for letting air flow through when the weather is warm. Easily closes up to keep the cold air from circulating.

This is the type of self contained tent that travels well and is suiting for the backpacker that values convenience and weight.
