Tent Type: 3-Season
Make and Model: Lone Pine - Black Pine Sport
Sleeping Capacity: 1 plus gear
Review: I have backpacked with this tent for almost 2 years now. I climbed Telescope Peak, Craig Peak, Tehachapi Peak, hiked Joshua Tree National Park, etc. etc. etc.

It is a great tent, I have used it in the summer and winter. I just came off a trip where my friend and I where in a snow storm in the Tehachapi's, we setup our camp on the peak. The outside temp was 14 degrees when I crawled into my tent around 9:30pm, I fell asleep quickly, it snowed all night and I woke up with snow all the way up my tent, and 10 to 14 inches on the ground. It actually worked great and the snow insultanted. The temp inside the tent was 29 degrees. It was a lot warmer than outside. There was moisture inside the tent some, but nothing like my friend had in his tent.
The tent is vented well.

The tent is a 3 season tent, but it worked great in the snow storm, probably because of the rain fly, it goes all the way down the to ground on all sides. I really love that tent.

It isn't the best you can by, but for the money, you can't beat it.

One thing to do if you decide to buy one, replace the steel tent pegs with alimun and only take 6 pegs. This will reduce the orginal (Stock weight). The tent is advertized at 5.7lbs, but after you change out the pegs, it is about 4.2lbs.
