Initial Thoughts :
Weight : Teton Sports refers to this tent as Ultralight; but Ultralight it is not! For a one person tent, this is actually some what heavy. I am going to have a separate video on lowering the weight of this tent where we will see just how light weight we can get it.
Color : I don’t mind yellow but I would love to see this tent in a dark green color. For a lot of people, when they go backpacking they wish to blend in rather than stand out. Such bright colors will often to off potential buyers.
Quality : Excellent! Everything is included; poles, stakes, fly, body, guy lines, ground sheet and so on.
Extra high bathtub floor will come in handy in wet environments
Price : From what I have seen thus far, this is an excellent tent for the money.
Setup : Exceptionally easy. Unrole. Poles. Clip. Done.
Space : Sit up, not problem!
Sturdiness : Excellent!
Ground fly : makes for a good tarp in a pinch!
Package size : Not as big as I was expecting which is a plus. I was thinking that this tent would make an excellent kayaking tent. Throw it inside of a dry back with some other gear and you would be good to go.

I know the tent is called Mountain but do you really think it is suitable for real mountain use? Like above tree lines, etc? Would you say it is a true 4 season tent? The lack of 4 way guy points leads me to think it might not do so well in a winter storm. So yeah, run it through the ringer and get back to us on it's bad weather performance. Thanks Luke.ReplyDelete
