Super Lightweight, but You will Have some Condensation
Posted by John & Sarah (Vic) on 14th Oct 2017
I purchased two of these for our group (as well as 2 of the Assault Bivy) as they are lightweight. Sure, you will get some condensation in this Tent, however you WILL get that in any single skin tent - hey! The vestibule is great for keeping backpacks dry.
Pros: 1. Roomy (I am 6') and there is plenty of foot, head, and side room. Neither of us felt closed in. 2. Super lightweight and easy to use (if you NEED more room, go the 3-Person Assault Tent).
Cons: 1. If you are a 'chunky-for-punky' it will be difficult to enter & exit. Sure, the one skin does makes it lighter, but for fat people, it may prove difficult to enter/exit. Especially once inside the tent, not to mention taking a pee in the middle of the night. 2. There is always condensation on my sleeping bag and on the inside of the tent in the morning. From what I have learned this is pretty much unavoidable with 'all' single skin tents. With decent weather, and some space to lay your stuff out, it only takes 15-20 minutes to dry out. We both loved this tent's simplicity, ease of use and its lightweight design. What's more to like!
