      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Its pretty good in the rain/wet weather. I've used it a lot in southwest BC this winter (near Vancouver). I keep my feet by the door and my head by the rear tunnel vent. I also leave the top of the door open a crack while still have the having the external storm flap protecting it. I haven't noticed any condensation on the eVent walls but I did notice some condensation on the metal poles. Its pretty easy to pitch. In a storm I drape the shelter over my body with my head at the vent and then I insert the poles from within standing up.

Having used a tent like this, the only thing I would say is that without a peak you have to really seal the thing up in heavy rain, not an issue of leaks but of oppressiveness.

For a year round tent I think I prefer the ID Wedge because of the vestibule which is so nice in the rain, for a winter tent I prefer the Firstlight b/c the height makes a big difference when I do not need waterproofing. The Rab seems somewhat in between.

That said the eVent fabric is awesome; my partner called my Rab the 'love nest' though, he preferred not to go in 8D

That's a great sales point for the hardman where alpine climbing isn't quite oppressive enough... :mistat:
