Survived an Iceland wind storm!
I needed a high quality tent for my summer Iceland trip where our photography group would be camping around the lsland so we could be close to all the beautiful places we wanted to capture in the best light possible. Full disclosure - I'm not much of a camper but after this trip and how well this tent performed, I have been reformed. The tent is super easy to set up given the color coding on the poles and tent straps and the inside was very roomie and had all kinds of netting pockets to store your loose objects. One reviewer said they had problems with water pooling on the rain fly but I didn't run across that during my 9 days of being...basically, wet. I'm proud to say this tent survived a wind storm with sustained winds of 85 mph and gusts of up to 115, but one of the MSR tents we had was not so lucky. Even one of the expedition style tents had bent poles, but not this one. The one criticism I have is that I had to purchase the ground cloth/footprint separately. At this price, it really should have been included. But definitely, don't skimp on that. The ground cloth really saved the day for me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
