Cliff Hanger Constructs
The Cliff Hanger is a sturdy and stable thanks to its fiberglass poles and aluminum stakes. The fiberglass poles are so easy to set up and take down that even a novice camper could do it. The aluminum stakes ensure you and your tent will stay rooted on the ground even on windy nights.
The Cliff Hanger comes equipped with full taffeta rainfly that comes with taped seams. The fly is coated with 1000 mm polyurethane. A great feature on the rain-fly is the two air vents located on the back on either side. This allows for air to easily flow into your tent when you need your rain-fly up.

It has a full no-see-um mesh body for lightweight carrying and great ventilation as well as keeping those small biting things out too. You can stargaze at night if the weather cooperates.

Heres the real rub with this tent. If you place it on a firm level surface and use it as designed with the rain fly clipped into place, it does not cover the footprint of the floor. The footprint is water resistant so this is not an issue if nothing it touching. But given the side of the tent, the odds of something not coming into contact with that surface is slim. Any precipitation that hits the fly will roll down and land on the side of the bathtub floor footprint. Also it is super drafty. The lower edge of the fly on the vestibule area is about two inches off the ground if run taught.
BUT there is a fix for these issues! Place the mesh interior on soft ground, no tenting platforms or stone ledges, and poke the ends of the poles into the earth while staking it out. Stretch the tent LONG but not wide. When it is time to attach the rain fly, do NOT clip it to the corners of the bathtub floor. Stretch them on separate pegs several inches from the corner pegs for the floor and pull them to the ground. When it is time to peg out the vestibule set it slack, far closer to the mesh door than you typically would so that the lower edges rest on the ground. This means hauling extra four pegs, but its worth it. This will keep the wind from drifting around the perimeter and allow you to control draft using the pockets on the ends of the tent and you will be a lot warmer at night. With one of these tiny tents you should likely pack a bag about ten degrees warmer than you expect the thermostat to drop regardless. If you treat this more like a bivouac shelter than a tent and you should be rockin' and rolling comfortably for several days out. Way more snug than a tarp/net combo for only a few ounces more and keeps the ticks and skeeters at bay. You wold be hard pressed to share this with anybody unless you sleep sitting up back to back, are dwarves, or want to take turns laying on top of each other. To each their own.
For $50 it's hard to beat. The only thing comparable weight wise in this price range is a Walmart kids two pole dome tent. It's also more of a spring green than neon lime, the color is far less obnoxious than it looks in the ads. The vestibule for the fly can be staked on either side and tied back which makes a neat little wind break when cooking with heavy wind. If a pole broke you could use the rain fly by itself as a shelter to stay dry, by using a hiking pole in the center and some ingenuity to keep the top spread slightly like a mini tee-pee with saggy walls.
Called Texsport customer service and spoke to Barbara. She said that they were having issues with the poles and we're getting new ones sent from the factory in about 2 weeks. So I'll have to check back with them at that time. We'll see....
called the customer service line again and they still don't have the new shipment of poles. They said to try back in another 2 weeks.
I have no problems with the fiberglass poles or the black plastic hooks. Not sure if it matters, but the temperature range has been anywhere from 45-95F. I keep 3 tent pole shims, duct tape and wire zip ties in my emergency SHTF kit just in case. I also have a nylon patch kit mainly for my thermarest pad but I think it could also be used to repair any punctures or tears. I suspect the fiberglass pole quality varies greatly from batch to batch. I think I got lucky. I would not take this tent (or any other tent for that matter) out without the fore-mentioned repair materials.
I also seam-seal all the rainfly and floor stitching. I do this every fall season. We have not had any problems with water leakage.
I made a footprint using cheap blue ground tarp. IMHO its worth the slight weight penalty.
Ditch the OEM tent stakes, even $3-4 Coulhans stakes are 100% improvement. This tent is not free standing it pretty much needs to be staked down at all corners.
