I’ve been on the fence for years about buying a Springbar due to packed size and cost. Finally called them to discuss options and was invited to check them out. The quality of this tent is way above any previous tent I’ve owned, including BA models more expensive than this one. On a recent cold weather rafting trip, this tent proved why Springbar material is superior to synthetic options—much warmer at night, way less draft, practically no condensation. I was very comfortable in my Springbar when others in synthetic tents were not. With the material and construction quality, I have no doubt that this tent will last a very long time, even considering the heavy use it will receive; definitely consider this a long term investment. Cheers to Springbar for making it in Salt Lake using US sourced materials and parts—rare these days. Can’t wait to take it on the Grand Canyon next year!
