The Tasmanian is a 4 season tent that is loaded with features. It uses 7000 series aluminum poles (one continuous pole system with hubs that reach end to end, and an additional pole that goes across the tent to help stabilize in strong winds). It also features a full-coverage fly with two vestibules to help store your gear. With an additional pole on the fly, it creates a very large vestibule on the front for even more gear storage. There are two doors (one on each end). The Tasmanian uses extra-large #8 zippers so opening doors and vestibules are a breeze every time. Year-round, this is a tent you can rely on!

Best winter tent I've ever owned

I love this tent. I have camped in nearly 0 degree temps alone in this tent with the snow falling. I had a zero degree sleeping bag and stayed very warm inside of this tent. I kept the fly vents closed and just opened one of the roof vents in the tent for sleeping. I had no condensation build up, and when the snow finally melted off not a drop of water inside. This tent is also plenty long inside for me to be comfortable and sit up in the middle. Super comfortable and warm winter tent.

Great tent in the winter

I took this tent up to Mount Baker in Washington. February 2020. We snowshoed in a mile or so. Setup was a breeze. The poles for the rainfly were a little wet from snow so it wasn't super smooth pushing them through the rainfly but it was fine. The front vestibule area is big enough to do some cooking, as long as you dig down in the snow once the tent is set up.. this was super handy to be able to sit in the tent with your leg out the tent, like you're sitting in a chair. Ventilation was great. Although it was quite windy and we had a little bit of snow blowing in through the ventilation holes up top. just a tiny bit and it would melt on the tent and just roll down the sides, but we didn't get wet. Temps were around 15 degreees F outside. We had 10 degree sleeping bags and we were nice and cozy. the second vestibule on the backside is pretty small, I didn't dig that one out because it just didn't seem to be worth it. but it is nice to have the option for the second entrance. Overall, this tent was great. simple setup and takedown. pretty light overall. Withstood the 25 mph winds through the whole night, plus an extra 6 inches of snow on top of it. I will be using this for many more snow/cold season campouts to come. Also, I bought mine on sale at REI for $260, I think. The stakes are a little on the small side.. but they do the job. just keep track of them and try not to lose them when you are cleaning up and taking down your tent.

Amazing tent

I purchased this tent in 2015 online and have used it year round. For Scouting trips and when I run up to Minnesota and see family but stay at a state park on the road.

It has been thru alot of different weather, every thing from hot summer to winter and in St Louis, Missouri you can get both in the same weekend. 70 degrees on day and wake up to snow on the tent the next.

On one trip to Minnesota there was, driving rain and winds at 50 to 60 miles and hour with flash flooding at a campground. Water over the top of my foot outside the tent and inside dry all night. The tents around me are being knocked over and mine is standing and dry even under the doors.

Love this tent
