Great tent.

I just took my new compact out for its first camping trip and I found nothing but success. Here is my definition of success: arriving to my campsite at night under conditions of cold, wet, mud, wind, and light rain and STILL being able to set this tent up DESPITE me never having practiced with it. The articles inside were still in their plastic wrapping for goodness sakes (as they should have been because I never practiced). To top it off, I was camping in a stony area and kept hitting solid rock as I was trying to stake the tent down (WHICH YOU MUST DO). The fact that I, as far away from a mountain man as one can get, was able to set this tent up under these conditions speaks volumes to how beautifully designed and simple this tent is. I absolutely recommend it if you can afford it.
