The thing missing here though, is the weight. This tent, per the ALPS website, weighs over 7 pounds fully loaded, a bit high for a backpack outing. Generally, you'd see older scouts use this as a solo tent (so 7.5 is high) or split the weight between younger smaller boys... for whom every pound counts.
the tent and tarp alone weigh 6 1/2 pounds, before adding the poles and stakes. So there's not much weight to be carved off by dropping steel stakes for titanium or aluminum.
The inclusion of a full tarp is a huge plus, with an adequate vestibule permitting gear/bag storage and shoe storage...of course, you'd put your food elsewhere.
Overall, I'd still reccomend it, especially for a new camper or for a tent to put two kids in and one adult in another on their own.

Dryest tent I have ever owned at a great price! Easily compares to Northface or Marmot tents for half the price! Buy it!Published on October 1, 2013 by Shawn F. Mckenney
The tent is excellent, it sets up in nothin flat and it is the perfect size, also, the colors are not to loud, in other words they blend rather than stand out. just what I wanted.Published on April 1, 2013 by caretaker8
It's cheap and unfriendly item. Did they really have engineers to make this product? Mentioned about efficiency. They shall experiment it first before publish it.Published on January 18, 2013 by Chi Wang
I can't comment on the durabilty yet as it has not been field tested but based on construction and ease of set up, this is a good tent for the price.Published on January 1, 2013 by Dave
