    1. Scotmaster's Dream

      I outfitted my entire Scout Troop with this tent. We do 3 to a tent + gear and it has worked perfectly for us. we've been out in many a rainy night and always have dry and cozy Scouts. on Oct 5th 2016

    2. Excellent for Boundary Waters

      The best feature of this tent is the full length fly. Anything less is just not suitable for wet and windy weather. Rated for 4 we have used it for 2 people and our pooch and gear with lot's of room to sit-up and even stand-up (with a slight hunch) while getting in and out of the tent. It sets up perfectly in minutes with 1 or 2 people. It's always roomy and always dry and all this for under 7 pounds.
      You can find short-length fly's on tents anywhere and cheaper too but this is a one-of-a-kind tent for the money. Please, never change the full-length fly on the Salida, it's the near perfect tent.

    3. great tent

      Has all the features and weight of a great all around tent. There is only one item that can be maybe offered as an option. South Texas summers will be hot with the ground level rain fly. A shorter fly that gives privacy but allows air flow would make this tent perfect........ on Apr 17th 2016

    6. Customer Review

      Great Tent! Being a Boy Scout, this tent has lasted me the past couple years with not one drip of water ever leaking in the tent. No problems that I can say, which is hard having used many different types of tents in the past. I recomend this tent to everyone. Great Quality! My all time favorite tent. on Feb 4th 2015
