    Does anyone use these? I would think a pyramid tent would be much simpler, more durable (if well made) and easier to use. Especially setting up in the dark.

    • SSD says:

      They’ve sold tens of thousands of them, so yeah, the Army uses these.

      • TominVA says:

        I’m sure Army has bought quite a few. What I meant was, are they actually used? When I was at Bridgeport (early ’90s), we used the new North Face tents. Though very strong, I always wondered if they’d last even a season in the hands of the average soldier / Marine. Those shock-corded poles…I dunno, a mid design seems to me like it would be much more durable.

    • Luke says:

      I love pyramid tents but dome tents still have a lot of advantages above tree line and in exposed areas like the ones shown…anecdotally most arctic expedition tents I see are still dome or tunnel tents, assume the shorter wind profile and increased wall tension is a big part of it.

    8 pounds? hoo boy

      On the light-side for a winter-use 2P tent, need the heavier coatings.

      Are the rain-flys reversible or, comes with multiple colors/pattern?

      Poles extruded or, welded?

      The brow pole configuration is concerning with regards to snow loading…but, it’s been tested so, must work right?

      • Ounces matter says:

        I’ve been issued these – they are relatively HEAVY. I try to use my backpacking tent which is 3 person and less than half the weight of their two person. I don’t get why they’re still so heavy. I love the design and OCP. But, They seem to be behind the curve of the rest of the industry in terms of weight. I wish they’d work on that spec.

        • SSD says:

          Joe is a one-man wrecking crew. Everything has to be overbuilt.

          • Less ounces please. says:

            LOL. That’s great. I really do like the product. I really appreciate the build to last concept, but IMO, weight is the critical priority. I haven’t had any fatal flaws in any of my backpacking tents. My note card for the suggestion box – build it lighter and more will come.

            • SSD says:

              Lol, they built it for government contracts

            • corsair says:

              You do realize these are winter tents, right?

              Nobody ‘backpacks’ a winter tent, Joe is going to be tossing these into their vehicle, on an ahkio or, splitting up the backpacking. Until there’s a technological revolution in textiles and coatings, a winter tent under 9lbs is cause for concern as there’s usually compromises in pole geometry, materials, coatings and overall durability.
