Product Description

From the MSR website.

Engineered with superior space and ventilation, the Dragontail single-wall expedition tent excels where most other’s fail. Its hoop design creates cavernous interior spaces, while a sealable, overhead vent runs the length of the tent to allow the ventilation that’s critical to single-wall performance. Ultralight and seam-taped silnylon packs small, providing the weatherproof protection that alpine ascents, ski tours and minimalist, 4-season adventures demand.


* Super-strong: Proven hooped design stands strong in high winds and heavy snow.
* Livable: Roomy inside with excellent gear storage under large front vestibule.
* Superior Ventilation: Sealable, end-to-end overhead vent keeps condensation to a minimum.
* Fast Setup: Fast Feed™ pole sleeves and single-wall design make setup fast and easy.
* Lightweight: Weighs just 4 lbs. 6 oz. (1.99 kg)

Voted 4/5

This is a very nice tent. It is a singlewall so there are some issues with condensation, but this is managed well by using the air vents. The inner door is mesh and has no solid wall. This was weird at first but has not proven to be an issue. The vestibule is very roomy as it the tent. Once you figure out how to deal with it not being free-standing you're set. Very solid and another quality MSR product.
