So far it's been a good solid tent. Not sure how bombproof it is yet - but we're on teh way off to the NWT with it this winter - will add some more to the review when I get back.

Very solid expedition tent, at an affordable price. As any rugged tent, it's quite heavy to transport. Not recommended for backpacking, but highly recommended for basecamp shelter. Sleeps 3, free standing vestibule for foul weather cooking, very solid contruction. All of this at half the price of a MHW, TNF or MSR.
