This thing is definitely heavy, but the quality thus far has been amazing (approximately 4 weeks of use overall)! It definitely makes it easier that the poles are in their own bag and the tent itself is in another.
It is so nice being a big guy (6’2”, 300lbs) and have room to stand and move around in this tent!
My biggest complaint thus far are that the stakes are really big, so difficult on rocky areas, and a couple have bent. I’m not sure if some “u” shaped stakes that are shorter would work or what, but I’ll figure that out down the road.
Otherwise I love this tent! It has held up to 35mph winds with no problem, and a decent amount of rain and hail. I also have used a buddy heater (away from the walls) in it and on the lowest setting it heats up QUICK (about 30 degree weather). Even with the windows about 3/4 open for ample ventilation, it’s still toasty in this tent. I look forward to using this for the rest of my life! Great job Springbar, I’m so happy with this tent!
