This two-person, three-season backpacking tent's unique three-pole design offers maximum space and stability.
- Nylon ripstop rainfly's silicone-coating inside reduces stretch to keep it taut; polyurethane coating outside maximizes waterproofness and durability.
- Roll-up rainfly allows extra ventilation without removing it; rear canopy zipper lets you access that part of the rainfly.
- Rainfly window constructed of clear, tear-proof, UV-resistant film that won't cloud--view outside conditions without letting in the elements.
- Opposing double-slider rainfly zippers with 4" pull-tabs provide easy ventilation and reduce zipper noise in high winds.
- Large front vestibule's aluminum brow pole increases strength and head room.
- Tension Shelf™ provides increased structural strength, support for vestibule and 3-D storage shelf.
- Extremely tear-resistant nylon ripstop canopy won't compromise breathability; mildew- and UV-inhibitors help extend the life of the tent.
- Versatile venting with two mesh intake vents, two side windows and large mesh canopy vent.
- Mesh ceiling window can be covered on the inside with a panel for shade, extra insulation or privacy.
- Single, full-size D-shape mesh door for ventilation and easy entry.
- Five perimeter pockets and webbing hang loops complete the organizational picture.
- Non-wicking grommet tabs have adjustable buckles for easy rainfly adjustment; bar-tacked/back-tacked stress points add strength and durability.
- Nylon taffeta floor with three-pass polyurethane coating offers maximum waterproof protection and strength.
- Comes with stuff sack, pole sack, peg sack, 7075-T6 aluminum V-pegs and seam sealer.

2007 ReviewI purchase this tent in 2003 as a versatile solution for backpacking with my
wife and young son, but also for some climbing trips where some extra space or
comfort might be appreciated. I have the 3 person version, which is slightly
bigger and heavier than the 2 person version. This tent is a little on the
heavy side, but the luxury it affords is worth it when there's some down time in
the mountains. The other down side is it would be very difficult to set
this tent up in a storm. There are three poles, which add to the
stability, but two of the poles are slightly different and can easily be
confused in the dark. The inside is spacious and has so many great nets
and compartments for holding things. The see through window on the fly
allows for viewing the sky, hence the name. You can also unzip a small
slot while in the tent and pull the fly over! The fly clips onto the tent
and the guy lines make for easy cinching.
- spacious with many compartments inside
- nice nighttime viewing through the window
- color coded grommets and poles
- you can pull the fly over from inside the tent
- tent rolls into stuff bag easily
- Can be difficult to set up (especially at first)
- Isn't the lightest tent
