I had purchased a new three season tent last year from Outbound. After a year of use it is still in pretty good shape. Unfortunately there is a lot of screen on the tent which can be easily ripped. We brought my cat camping and the little brat ripped it a couple of times (even though she knows it was bad)! Using a patch kit from Canadian Tire the holes were easily patched.

The tent is very light weight and it comfortable fits two people and a large dog with our gear. The tent is excellent in very nice weather, especially when it is not raining as you can take the fly off and sleep under the stars with no worries of bugs. This is one of my favourite things to do in the summertime. It handled exceptionally well in a rain storm. I found that the design allowed you to touch the edges of the tent without worry of any water coming in during the storms, which we have had issues with other tent designs.

I love the design of the tent as well, allowing more head room then the standard dome tent. The tent is made with two entrances and the fly allows a vestibule at the two sides which we found great for our muddy boots and shoes! The large doors make it easy for entering and exiting as well.

Another nice feature is the colour and reflectiveness of the tent making the tent easy to spot during the day and at night!

So far this is one of my favourite tents that I own and I can not wait to get it out for another summer of fun!
