Bombproof winter shelter
November 30, 2010
I was looking for a tent that would be lightweight, waterproof, storm proof, and work in the cold. I found it all with this tent. Took it out for a trial run this weekend and could not be happier. Mother nature even cooperated by dumping some snow on us with high winds during the trip. Through it all, the tent worked great. Shed the snow easily and could hear the wind outside but the wall didn't flap at all. Easy to set up and stake out and everything is adjustable. Makes it a breeze. Plenty of room inside for two people and could fit a third if you had to. Even with all the vents completely shut, the girlfriend doesn't like drafts, there was minimal condensation in the tent. Tears down quick and easily fits back in the stuff sack. Looking forward to many more adventures with this tent.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Polaris-The true future of lightweight tents
March 02, 2008
I have owned this tent for two seasons now,using it in testing conditions where previous tents have shown their weaknesses.The Polaris has proved itself more than worthy,being rapid in erection and striking,waterproof,cold proof and extremely durable. Combined with its micro weight and enormous living area,this tent is an absolute joy and well worth every penny.The unique guy system and excellent venting are but two outstanding features worthy of especial mention,making ones life bearable,while others around suffer the indignities afforded by inferior tentage.10/10.
