If you want to stay dry on your next trip and avoid the hassle of faulty zippers, ALPS Mountaineering tents are for you! The Morada is a free standing tent that is enhanced with 2 doors for easy entry and 2 vestibules for gear storage and extra weather protection. Extra large #8 zippers make opening and closing the doors and vestibules a breeze. The Morada has 7000 series aluminum poles that are strong and lightweight. Assembly is really easy with the tent clips that just snap in place over the poles. There's also a cross pole, which provides ample head room above the doors, making it easier to get in and out of the tent. The cross pole also provides more interior space, by making the walls more straight. With factory sealed fly and floor seams, you're sure to stay dry in rainy weather. The fly and floor are urethane coated, factory sealed seams for maximum weatherproofness. The fly buckles to the tent, offering a much more secure attachment when compared to elastic cord. The mesh roof vents increase ventilation and improves star gazing. All these combined features, make the Morada a great choice for any backpacking trip.

I dumped out the bag on my arrival, neglecting to notice the assembly instructions sewn inside. Didn't matter. This is a very intuitive tent. Went together (even with "help" from small fry) in less than 10 minutes. Alps added some nice details. Tent flaps have peg-and-loop-tiebacks to keep doors open. No fumbling with knots. Guy lines supplied have built-in tensioners. Tent pegs are heavy aluminum - not those weak bread tie stakes. Vestables have ample room for muddy boots. Two doors make middle of the night bathroom trips easier. Plenty of room for two adults, a Scout and some gear. Aluminium tent poles fold up short, making the packed bag easier to carry on a backpack.
Couple of awareness items: Tent is primarily fabric, so it will get hot and hold moisture. For cool camping, however, this is an advantage. The windows on the rain fly take some getting used to. Great for lighting up the dark tent, but reduces privacy. Finally, watch tripping over the threshold as you enter and exit. Overall, however, a great tent.
The tent is fairly durable so far--held up to three rambunctious kids trapped inside for a day and a half due to weather--no rips or other problems.
The tent is listed as 4-person and unlike most tents, it really lives up to that. Great headroom even up to the sides. We had 2 adults and 3 children, each with a thermarest and fit comfortably with room for gear inside the tent. The two vestibules at each door offer additional gear storage. They are not super roomy but will accommodate shoes and a backpack or two.
Footprint is still reasonable even with fly. It's a big tent but even when fully staked, not unreasonably large. Had not issues finding sites.
The tent kept us warm on nights that dipped into the 20's. The downside is that I think this tent would be too hot for summer camping in the heat. But for winter camping, it was great.
I like the windows which don't compromise privacy but do allow a nice view. I like the colors which blend pretty well with the environment. Personally I am not a big fan of bright tents.
The stuff sack is garbage. Flimsy material and poorly made and not big enough to hold the tent, fly, stakes and poles unless you roll (and I prefer to stuff).
There are a lot of guy points. I used paracord to tie them out to keep the flapping to a minimum in high winds. When I didn't guy them out, the tent was plenty sturdy but loud.
The stakes are the usual crappy aluminum 8-inch junk--I bought better stakes because we had to cope with serious wind. I would never trust those stakes in real conditions.
Tentunlikely to hold up to serious abuse. Unlike some of the higher-end mountaineering tents, I don't picture this tent holding up to long-term serious abuse. I think it will work just fine for our family's canoe tripping even in Alaska but I wouldn't want it on Mt. Everest or something hardcore like that.
CONS: The structural poles or rods are made of aluminum which bent on the first night out during a rain (under benign conditions), which caused the tent to partially collapse and water got in, getting all of our gear wet. Over the course of a two week trip, most of the center rods gave out and bent which caused us much grief. Furthermore, there are two vents on the sides of the tent (inner tent wall) which cannot be closed, which makes this tent a 2 season tent (if they could be closed, it may make it a 3 season).
Bottom line: Great design, poor material choice for rods. If you were to replace the poles, it would be a great tent. Unfortunately, I will be sending mine back.
The tent poles are sturdy as are the included stakes.
Overall a great tent for the money. Not the lightest, but quite possibly the best deal.
Withstood a lot of windy nights and some rain. We should be testing out the rain on upcoming UK trip.
Interior size is good, we're able to fit a nearly queen size (ALPS Air mattress) inside with room to spare.
Only dings I would give are that the side windows have no covering so should someone be looking they can "look" into the tent, as much as the clear plastic and no see um mesh will allow. The rain fly also does not come down on the side as much as I would like, leaving the tent bottom exposed.
I also had to return 1st tent because was missing a strap on the rain fly but Amazon worked quickly to replace before our trip.
