Comments about GigaTent GigaTent Recon 2, 2-Person Tent:

We had found the Gigatent Recon 2 online for around $50 and thought, "Wow! What a Deal!" Turns out you get what you pay for with this thing. It leaked at every zipper despite reassuring fabric flaps over the zippers. The rain-fly dripped water through the zippers all over my pack and gear that I left out in one vestibule. I have an email into the vendor to see what they will do for return/exchange. For now, let me say the Gigatent Recon 2 is a great price for dry weather camping. The materials seem durable and the square footage is excellent. The weight is a little heavy; I don't know how the spec sheet gets 6lbs, 3oz. I couldn't get that if I was removing all the tent stakes. Call packed weight closer to 7lbs 6oz.
