              I have my Vagabond set up in the yard for several days now. It’s been rained and snowed on. There is no water coming in except some moisture that congregated at the upright poles seam. Water was pooled a bit in that area but it was mere drops that seeped inside. No leaking from above. I have the rain fly as well but haven’t set it up yet. This tent will be nicely “seasoned” now. High quality in all aspects. Putting up that rain fly will make this tent weather bomb proof. It’s so nice to stand up in the Vagabond. No hunching over. The zippers are serious heavy duty but rattle when wind blows and moves the walls of the tent. I put rubber bands through the eyelet to immobilize them. No more noise. The pearl grey actually seems more a sage color. It was what I saw in the pictures online and is a pleasant light color. It’s going to be a great tent for many years to come!

              14 yrs and running

              This tent has been from Maine to Spain and always performed as it should, after 14 yrs of use, 3-5 times annually, for a few or many days at a time. Recently bought a footprint and awning to add on. Put a stove Jack on as well. I do waterproof it every few years and take reasonable care of it. Fits 2 full sized cots for 2, 6’ plus men plus hunting gear (under cots), small table for whatever, and 2 hanging lanterns. I love this tent. May never need another. Keep up the good work, team.

              Sanctuary in high winds

              Love it. Surprised at how easy it is to set up, and the overall design is great. Despite high winds it held sturdy with the substantial stakes and strong frame, and I was able to work inside all day safe and warm. Highly recommend.
