    It has been long period of searches for the product like this. It was not only limited US product, but through out the world. This product has very reasonable prices, good design and excellent functions then similar products in US market. I used this product personally and reviewed with recommendation for my colleagues to use Himalayan high altitude experiment.

    Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

    Questions about this item:

    Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
    RICHARD P  Unlike other tents in this class (eg., BD Firstlight) this tent has pole sleeves. This adds strength and structure to resist winds without additional guying. The weight is 3lb11oz without the vestibule, light enough but not ultralight. Also, got a great deal at Sunny!
    eddy d  I would like to know how the vents ( if any ) are protected from rain/snow entering? Is this tent an icebox compared with a double skin tent? Is condensation a problem in cold weather?
    MIKE H  There are vents on the front and rear with small awnings that have mesh and fabric zip up panels. When open, they'll keep out rain and snow in mild wind conditions. This is primarily a high altitude, lightweight tent to use with or without the vestibule. With the vents open, it breathes very well and condensation is held to a minimum. Don't expect any tent, when closed up, to stay dry. I have only used it solo and while venting, it provides the best compromise of dryness and air movement to allow your insulating gear to do their jobs. I'm 5'10", 165 lbs. and it makes for a roomy solo shelter with all my gear inside. It would be a snug fit for two people, but a great weight saving option for multi day summit bids. I used it in very high winds on a glacier, bending it enought to drop socks off of the upper shelf and it held up great... just had to tie the vestibule zipper closed!
    Shopper  Does this tent have a footprint available?
    KYO H  Yes. According to the North Face. I saw the picture and price from there, but I used my large size Poncho with modification, because I did not want to carry extra weight in my backpack for foot print only. I purchased 5/8" packaged Eyelet tool comes with 4 sets of eyelets from Michel's for $6 (Size - 5/8") to make four punched hole on each corners and hole can be secured. Brand name was Sewing Basket. Those eyelets were just perfect fit with tent pole. Even though I used several tent before, I recommend this is one of really perfect attack tent for four seasons with good price. You will enjoy and not regret for good price.
