I'm typing this while the ads run.... Sigh. Still waiting.
Auto start commercial! I am SO tired of this before a video! Please stop!
I've had a previous version of this tent (pre-eyebrow) for a number of years and love it. It has great storage vestibules and it's light enough I sometimes carry it for a solo shelter and have the luxury of extra room. It also fits well in my sea kayak.
I wish the video was a little more informative on setting up the tent i.e., footprint, floor and fly. Then getting more ventilation when it might be wet but too warm to keep everything closed up tight. Have never used a small tent - it is different.
I just recieved this tent as a birthday gift, and it is nothing short of a wonderful two man tent. I was in time for a perfect test run, and this is a waterproof, ventilated, hiker's dream, 2 person hotel. Great new addition to all my gear, and I'm sure that with the durable materials REI put into it, it will last for many years to come. The internal pockets are quite useful for phones/GPS, headlamp, fresh socks, and much more. My brother and I, which are both Eagle Scouts, will be doing quite some backcountry trekking in the future, and it helps a lot more knowing that we are 6'2" and 5'8", and can still sit up side by side. Nearly vertical walls add much more pleasure while sitting up and stuffing your sleeping bag, and doing other normal tasks which others cannot perform in another tent. This is definetly a five star tent.
Lose the damn commercial!
annoying auto-start commercial.....makes me not want to come back
I am REALLY sick of that stupid Glenfiddich spot before EVERY DAMN Vid!!!
this is a great tent easy to set up an very roomy with lots of mesh pockets inside i went backpacking for 3 days last week and had all the weather hit me from nice sunny to windy snow it did a good job and stayed dry and the extra room under the fly was nice for keeping my pack and boot out of the tent and dry
this tent is awsome i haave used it in 2 backpacking trips and the last one it started pooring kept me dry. excellent room with the "eyebrow" also
josh-you're wrong, sorry....
