              The hype seems accurate

              The cult following of these tents seems justified. I'm not what you'd call a "prepper" but I'm trying to buy things I will need to be happy for my retirement at today's prices. I wanted a tent with some real longevity to use as a "living room" on long trips out of my teardrop when parked for several days somewhere. Enough room for a couple chairs and a table, a small heater… Room of course to sleep if I had a guest join me. I settled on the Outfitter for ease of set up, size, and weight and it is perfect. I set it up in my yard and it's just like an intimate little room, comfortable to enter and exit, have a couple chairs, maybe even three… I think four people sitting in it might be a bit much and for that I would get probably the Vagabond or the Leisure Port shelter if you are ok with added size and weight.

              If you have experience with public land camping or campgrounds, the 7 x 9' footprint of the Outfitter is just about as big as I want to go. The poles are lighter weight and the whole canvas package is easily manageable for one person.

              I sprayed it down on a hot sunny day to season it and not a single water drop got inside. I would be totally confident in this tent in adverse conditions.

              So far I am 100% satisfied; the tent arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

              One point I would make is that the color "pearl gray" is, in my opinion, misleading. I don't mind the color at all, but it is NOT gray. I would describe it as more of an institutional mint green, like a hospital room from the 1950s or something like that. Sunlight looks really nice coming through the walls of the tent.

              Perfect for the solo camper who wants plenty of room without the weight!

              I wanted something quality that I can stand up in. I wanted something easy for one person to put up and take down , without needing to refer to notes. No confusion, easy! I wanted something I can put a full cot inside and turn it in a glamp style camp and one that was lighter in weight. Easy to tow out of car and back into car. So I bought the Outfitter. Love it. Tried it out in a state park for a few days and it was just what I wanted. Now taking it to another campground in a few weeks again. I brought it home from a weekend where it was damp and literally pitched it really easy in the front lawn to dry off and now took it back down and packed it for the next trip. Easy.

              Great quality

              Well worth the price of the tent. I purchased a Travelir 5 15 years ago and it is still going strong. Needed ab e tra te t since have more family now going g on our trips. The Outfitter fits my needs. I am so glad that I went with USA made Springbar, Quality and dependability was critical to me. I was tempted to go with Chinese version but the little things make the American made well appreciated
