  • Privacy – The tent body is constructed with both mesh and solid fabrics to strategically offer ventilation, warmth, and privacy.

easy to assemble

Posted on Dec 20, 2023
Just gave this tent a trial run on a backpacking trip. It's well-made, easy to assemble, lightweight, and roomy. It seems like this tent will do well in cooler weather, a real 3-season tent.

Wind and rain are terrified of this thing!

Posted on Nov 4, 2023
First trip. Kodiak, Alaska. Ugak Bay. Two nights. Rained 1.5". 20-knot winds with gusts of 35-40 knots. Dry as a bone. Tent solid as a rock. Friend tented in Hubba Hubba. Yep, his packs smaller. Mine took the wind better. Plenty of room for me plus all gear. I am 6'2" 230lb. Zero complaints. Glad I didn't go for anything else!

Came to the site again (with previous good experience from other departments) in need of a tent and footprint-- Elizabeth was great with recommendations and offering more options that stayed within the budget but weren't on the radar to begin with. That and helping with other recommendations generally for hiking/camping, she is greatly appreciated!

She not only answered my questions but also gave great advice. The article she sent had amazing tips and was easy to read. She was super friendly and everything she typed seem to have a smile attached. I have already recommended this site to a few people because of her.

I'm scatter brained and overwhelmed. The help she provided meant a lot on a day like today, when I wanted to cry, and quit adulting. Thanks, Nicole. You're helping me achieve my life long dream.

I am planning a 2024 thru hike on the Appalachian Trail (hiking my I own hike) to salute the the end of my 60s, and beginning of my 70s. Elizabeth is so helpful, supportive, offered some great advice, and made wonder recommendations. She's my five star personal shopper. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I was looking for a weather proof tent for a homeless veteran. I thought I needed 4 season 1 person. Jeffrey recommended 3 season, 2 person since it's California. No snow.
