REVIEW/FEEDBACK on Gigatent Mt. Washington Backpacking Tent

Post by campingstew » Mon Feb 22, 2010 2:13 pm

Anyone have any experience with this tent? I am considering it as a 4 season tent and I like the aluminum poles, full rain fly and vestible all as nice features. I typically go winter camping in Massachusetts once a winter and would like to get a replacement tent one that can comfortably fit 2 people plus some gear.
