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.
