Four season, two poled, around the 1.5KG mark, clean comfy stable, a nice place to spend the end of the day.
Does better than other solo tents in bad weather. Good pegs guide lines, porch cowl keeps most rain out even with door open. Stronger ground sheet than others. Around the 1.5KG mark.
Had some seam leaking problems. Stiching has had to be reapired, able to do that myself though over four years of use. Sides blow in when in strong wind, but managable.
I think this tent is probably the best choice for a four season solo tent, price, weight, and usability wise. You can camp in prety foul weather high up without a pole breaking and all hell breaking loose, well so far anyway... It keeps you dry and out of the weather, theres no problems with sitting up or using the porch for cooking or storing wet waterproofs. Midges don't get in but there is good ventilation with pannels at the back and front of the inner, some condensation at the foot end sometines though. And I would be concerned if either side of the front giude lines went in string winds, but all guidelines and pegs are of good quality. Some V pegs help with the guide lines though in soft groung. Also a tip for the short cowl pole...just attach the fly to the front pole then insert the pole and guide it through with your hand on the other side of the fly sheet. ...Oh and the Guide lines look pretty cool under torch light too. So easy to find in the mist!
