Awesome tent, BOMBPROOF!!! I live in a rain forest on Vancouver Island BC and went through what experts call a weather bomb!! It broke a record that took 24 hours to make, in 7 hours! This tent held up great during this crazy downpour. I would fully recommend this tent to anyone who is looking for a sturdy weatherproof tent. It also comes with cup holders, footprint and an attic. Best bang for your buck.

Great tent. My wife and I have used it, extremely roomy for two, could fit three pretty easily, and the vestibules are plenty big for 3 people's gear. We will use it with our 2 little girls (age 3 and 20 months). Space will be kind of tight, but we'll fit! It rained on us pretty good our first trip out, and no water in the tent. Not superlight at 7 pounds, but not bad either. I found this to be the best combination of room, price, and weight that I could find!

Comments about Sierra Designs Sierra Designs Antares 3-person, 3-season Tent with Accessories - 2008 Model:

Used this tent for a week in the BWCA last spring. Naturally it rained 5 out of 6 nights. The tent kept me totally dry. It is reasonably light to carry(especially considering it's size), fast to set up, and stood up wonderfully to some pretty serious weather. The only issue I have with the tent is that the doors are located on sloped walls, and when you emerge in the morning you need to give the fly a vigorous shaking to remove the moisture before opening the door or some of the water can end up on the floor inside the tent entrance. Afer learning my lesson this ceased to be an issue. The two vestibules were excellent to store extra gear. Overall is a great tent.Can't beat this tent for the money!
