I received my Bison one week after securing my order, packaging is great, tent arrived in good condition, I enjoyed pulling all the components out, the tent has a feeling of quality you don't get much anymore. the Saturday after the tent arrived we set it up in the yard, I don't think I have ever found a tent so easy to understand and assemble. the tent smells clean, the smell of the plastics used on most tents is the same, this is different and better. this feels like a long lasting item, we can't wait to get out and use it on our adventures in the coming years. On a parting note, my biggest reason for buying from Springbar was the fact that some of their tent models, including the Bison, are made in the USA, almost all other brands I considered are imported. I understand the need to compete on the global market, so I don't begrudge Springbar for sourcing some of their items overseas, however, considering some of the atrocities being committed by China against its people, I would rather spend my money helping improve the lives of craftsman in my own country rather than continuing to fuel a foreign country's war against it's citizens.
