Who I am:

I’m a Mountain biker. Sometimes, I ride my bike in mountains for a few days or during competitions. So I need to a lightweight and compact tent. Also with friends we go hiking in the Pyrenees and in that case it’s better to have a tent in which we can sleep all together! Lastly a good living area is important for cooking when the weather is poor.

Compact
Comfortable for 2 persons with backpacks and bikes

I bought this hiking tent 4 years ago. I use it arround 30 days/year and it runs smoothly. I’ve bent some tent pegs because of stones but it doesn’t matter. By my own, I put up this tent in less than 7 minutes and put it down in less than 12 minutes.

.

I’ve slept in it under three cloudbursts. I’ve needed to do draining trenches all around!
Moreover condensing is reduced unlike pop up tents thanks to space between bedroom and canvas.

Warning:

tarpaulinTo protect it, I put a solid waterproof tarpaulin under the tent (for stones) because bottom looks like frail and no really waterproof. It’s smaller than the bottom to avoid water seepage.

.

Cleaning is easiest when the product is set up. Hand wash with warm water using a sponge and mild, non-detergent soap. Rinse throughly to remove all soap residue. Wait it’s dry before put it down to avoid molds or hand wash it when you come back home and let it dry.

Conclusion:4-stars

I’m totally satisfied with this hiking tent.
You can sleep in it with complete confidence.
However use it with a waterproof tarpaulin because the bottom looks like frail.
