This tent is designed to provide maximum usable space and total weatherproof performance.With its large no-see-um grade mesh roof, three large doors and two windows, the Promontory provides excellent ventilation, visibility around camp and fantastic stargazing at night. When the weather turns nasty, the Promontory buttons up tight with an easy-to-install rainfly to provide 100% guaranteed waterproof performance, in heavy rain and driving wind gusts up to 50mph.

Maximize your living space while camping with the entire family with the Paha Que Promontory two-room, eight-person tent. The Promontory offers a generous peak height of 7 feet and a roomy 12-by-10-feet footprint. That's 120 total square feet of living space in its open configuration, or you can divide it into two spacious rooms that each measure 10 by 6 feet (the tent includes a removable room divider with a built-in zipper). The tent also offers exterior doors on both sides and a large side door, so you don't have to step over all the other campers if you need to take a midnight restroom break.

The tent's moisture-resistant features include heavy-duty polyurethane waterproofing on the rainfly, sidewalls, and window fabric; factory tape-sealed seams; and a bathtub-style floor that keeps ground water out of the tent.

About Paha Que
It all started with three guys and a tent. The three camping buddies who founded Paha Que began talking over evening campfires about how to build a better tent--one that wouldn't leak, but was roomy; one that offered headroom to folks who stand 6 feet or taller; and one that provided camping enthusiasts with the luxuries of home. So they discussed their idea to their friend Spike, Pamo Valley ranch foreman for the last 50 years. His reply? "Stop talkin' bout it, and get to it, dammit!" The fruits of their labor evolved into a company known today as Paha Que Wilderness and the trio's signature tent, the Pamo Valley. Paha Que is headquartered in Poway, California.

I bought this tent to take my two daughters camping with the Indian Princesses. When I got it, I set it up in my warehouse to make sure I knew what I was doing. Setup was relatively easy in the controlled environment of my climate controlled warehouse.

When I went camping, I had to set it up in real-world conditions, it wasn't as pain free as the first time. The wind was blowing about 8 miles per hour and it was cold. First of all, Paha Que recommends that you have two people set this up. However, with the wind blowing, I'd recommend having 4 people (one on each corner) when lifting the corner supports. The first time I tried it with two people, we broke one of the aluminium poles that hold up the roof. I had to undo the pole and fashion a PVC splint to temporarily fix the pole so I could use it. After splinting the broken pole, I called two other friends over and we each grabbed a corner and raised the roof with no effort, whatsoever.

Once assembled, I could appreciate the nice features of this tent. It is very roomy for our three campers and it had lots of hangers to hang various things. This is a good looking, well constructed and engineered tent. It's obvious that the people at Paha Que know a thing or two about tent camping. The floor is of good quality and all the seams appear to be sturdy.

I love aluminum poles, but in my opinion, it appears that Paha Que has been using an inferior quality pole lately. I spoke to the folks at [...] and they told me that they received many complaints about the Paha Que poles. They asked me if I had the original pole and told me they could do wonders to repair it and reinforce it for the next time. Unfortunately, I had already thrown away the pole at the campsite because I didn't realize it could be repaired.

Reviewer note: I have a lot of experience with tents. I've been pushing my luck and getting lost in wildernesses for over 30 years. Currently own 8 working tents, including this one. I've worn out or killed at least that many over the years, and slept in several more. Bubba knows his tents.

Totally agree with scuba's comments, including the fragility of the poles. Third time we (attempted to) put it up was in fairly cold (low 20's) and windy (gusty, to 35-40 mph) conditions. One pole snapped at the end as we were erecting the tent. It took months and several email and phone exchanges to get a replacement pole shipped. To be fair, the Paha Que folks were always friendly and cooperative during the process -- just not by any measure particularly coordinated or exhibiting any sense of urgency.

We also found out the hard way that the rainfly clips are also fragile, at least in cold conditions. Again, Paha Que was cooperative -- offered to fix it for free if we would ship the fly to them -- but after the experience w/ the poles, we opted instead to just affix a tie to the end and make do.

Once you get the tent stood, it's nice. Great space, surprisingly stable in wind, very liveable tent. The doors are the best I've seen; easy to work, and so large that we had no problems moving XL-sized cots in and out. Fabric and seams are excellent. Near-vertical walls give you much better shoulder space than you usually see. The tent vents beautifully in warm weather; great airflow. I had my doubts about the partial-coverage rainfly, but the interior stays dry even in heavy rain.

My take on this model is:
- Good for warm-weather excursions, iffy for colder environments
- Excellent once it's up...

I have a good friend who has had one of these Promontory tents for about 7 years and swears by it. When i decided to buy a new tent this year he convinced me this was the best tent I could get. But when I checked out some earlier reviews I was concerned about the poles breaking too easily. So I called the company and asked them what was up. The guy I spoke to was very honest and explained that in 2010 they produced a batch of this tent that had some defects in the poles, and that it had caused some problems with poles failing but that they had replaced the pole sets for customers who had the problem. He said they have since made another run of these tents in 2011 and have corrected the problem with a improved pole set. He seemed very sincere about this. So I bought it online, and we have used it twice already this summer. We have had no problems at all, and on one trip we had severe thunderstorms it was very windy but our tent held up awesome and we were bone dry the whole time. We love how easy it is to set up and how roomy it is inside. Our friend was there with his family as well and were using their older (blue color which I like) Promontory that worked just as well as our brand new one (which is the orange color). So I am giving this tent a high rating. Cant wait to go camping again before winter!

Just spent 3 nights in our new tent. Overall, a disappointment. It appears that this tent was designed for the Southwest desert. Dry, warm, fewer bugs than the southeast.

A few notes...

1. goes up easily & large gear loft.

2. Too much ventilation. Massive screen ceiling can not be closed or covered,...making it impossible to raise the temperature in the tent in the winter. Tent manufacturers call this "ventilation" but is really just poor design. We spent 3 nights in November in ALABAMA in 30-degree sleeping bags and were cold. This is NOT a winter tent.

3. Poor door designs. The solid door panels zip only on the sides,...not across the bottom. To fully close the door, you must close two panels independently...the screen and the solid door. This is a hassle in the winter when there are few bugs...why make me zip a screen separately? The door should use typical design of a large screen that zips fully,...with an inset solid panel that can be unzipped in regardless of how you use it, you only zip one panel to operate the door

3. "Gear Hammocks" under the window? Please. If your "gear" is a thimble and you don't mind it swinging away from the wall (consuming floor space), this is useful.

4. Room divider...putting a large piece of transparent Kleenex in the middle of the tent does not create two rooms. You can't use the room divider and main (overhead) gear loft at the same time.

5. Covered Awning...Maybe useful in shading the sun...useless in terms of rain. This is not a 'dry' vestibule.
