I love how easy this tent is to set up, I love how much space you get for the weight, and I love how easy it is to move - camping in rocky Northeast areas, being able to set up the tent under shelter and move it, using it really quick as a bug net - I really like a lot of things about this tent.
The only thing I didn't really love was the rainfly design. I could never... quite get the tent completely waterproof. The design at the top (where the poles cross) leads to saggy wet nylon eventually dripping right on you. The corners - you can see it in the screenshots - aren't 100% covered near the footbox. In practice I found it was impossible to keep slow drips from getting in.
I am still contemplating buying a replacement (mine was stolen, no fault of the tent!) but I really wish the rain fly was a bit more... bulletproof. That'd make this the best tent on the market.
Thank you for your review. Because the Soul x2P outer fabric is so light weight it does not seem very strong BUT it is quite strong because both sides of the fabric are coated with silicone making the fabric two times (2x) stronger than the same fabric with PU fabric that most tents have. Thank you for your review.
This tent has a nice amount of space for the weight. I like the front entrance. It lets me lay out my inflated sleeping pad without having to bend it to get through a side door, and just before I go into my tent for the night, I can add a puff or two of breath without having to fight to get me or the mattress into place to top it off. With the vestibule open, I can look up and see the stars at night. I know that many don’t like a vestibule that lets you look straight up, because that also allows rain to come in when you’re entering your tent during rain... but I live in the west and it doesn’t rain very much. I very much enjoy looking up at the Milky Way most nights, and I manage to get in and out without much rain getting in. It’s dry when it rains. It has withstood a few hail storms. I added bungee cord to the pull outs, so I wouldn’t have to fuss with tightening the tent when the silnylon is wet, and that has been the final step in making this tent perfect for me. The ventilation is good, too, so I rarely have condensation.
