I will begin by saying that I spent a long time researching and trying to figure out what my next tent purchase was going to be. I ended up choosing the springbar traveler for three basic reasons, American made, canvas and ease of set up.
I wanted something made by Americans to support that type of company staying alive here. The quality of materials is exceptional and it is obvious why it is an expensive purchase. The other thing I wanted to avoid was that feeling of waking up covered in moisture. The tent is extremely breathable and I never wake up feeling damp. A bonus is that it is very pleasant to sleep in from a noise point of view. (Quiet) the final reason is just how simple this thing is to set up. I can set it up by myself easily in around 10 minutes with out rushing. Everything comes in its own nicely made bag. This is a positive because of how heavy the parts would be all in one bag. A bonus I have discovered is just how incredibly strong it is! This tent feels bullet proof in the wind, I'm extremely pleased. If anyone is on the fence of paying basically $1000 dollars for a tent, don't be. Excellent product.
