Great Customer Service
Nice sturdy tent. Airflow was lacking but after about an hour it cold off. Kind of a pia to set up a fly first style tent as opposed to interior first, having to climb around on knees to hook all the interior connections up. Also, if it's hot inside, don't have a lot of options other than the tie outs for airflow. Materials are very high quality and the they give you a bunch of aluminium steaks that are nice and lite. All in all, A good buy, especially with the awesome price Mad City gave me. Thanks, Jon
As advertised. Good quality. Easy to set up, not as easy to repack. Please see other online resources for long term reviews.
I would like to share that the customer service provided was amazing, especially after reading a bunch of reviews that almost made me cancel my order in fear that the company was a scam. So not true. I trust mad city outdoor and so should you. I’ll write a review elsewhere to help others in need of making a decision.
As for the tent, great quality that seems likely to last last your entire life if treated with respect. I plan on handing this tent down to my kids when the time comes.
I have to say though that this is not a 3 man tent and barley a 2 man tent.
This is a one man tent that will give you all the space you’ll need to keep all your things inside and If you have a medium sized dog , he or she can fit in there with you np.
I received this tent 21 days ago and have texted it in the field on a 2 night 3 day outing and it held up amazing. No rain just sun.
Hope you all find this info helpful.
To be fair, you could fit your partner in here and leave your packs in the vestibule.
Tent arrived just as expected. Easy to set up. Putting it back in it's original stuff sack is a bit of a struggle. Quality looks good especially for the price. Too soon to give a long term update, but there are several good ones online elsewhere.
