Best three season tent for me!
I just received this tent recommended by Rob on the Altec staff and my three member family put it to use immediately. We live in an area that can be chilly, windy, rainy and also hot and humid. This tent came without adequate instructions and explanations but the tent is absolutely terrific. I have spent hundreds of nights in the "great outdoors" and used a large variety of tents. This tent is spacious, easy to set up and extremely well designed for ease of use and pleasure of camping. Absolutely outstanding ventilation with the ability to enjoy looking at the stars and protection from rain when needed. I wish there had been such a tent as this when I first began camping. The material quality and construction appears to be first rate but I cannot speak about lasting durability yet because I have not had this tent very long. However, I am hopeful my expectation that it will last a very long time proves to be true.

Great tent.
I am very happy with this tent. Stood up to 3 days of rain dry as a bone. Fit 3 people just fine with space for gear. The closeable windows are great for privacy or controlling ventilation. True mountian hardware quality.

Big Tent for Big Guys
This tent is extremely well-constructed and pretty light, given its size.True Mountain Hardware quality. Easy to set up and an amazing array of windows, zippers, etc. This is very comfortable and unlike most "3-man" tents, you could actually sleep 3. But at 6'4" I like some room and headroom and its perfect for two people who need that. My only complaint is that there is no real vestibule for cooking or heating water on crappy days, or before you head out.
