Great lightweight tent... with a little help.

I just wanted to follow up with some feedback following my recent 140 mile section hike on the Ice Age Trail using your Dynalite 1P tent. I had rain on several nights, and the tent performed great. The additional guy out points I added on the rainfly definitely helped with venting and condensation. This thing sets up and tears down easily... and on the mornings when it was pouring rain, there was enough room inside and under the vestibule to get all my gear packed up and tucked away before climbing out into the elements.

I cut a piece of plastic drop cloth to the size of the mesh body footprint to use as a ground sheet, and had no signs of abrasion or wear on the bottom of the tent. The only failure I encountered was a single broken tent stake, but that was my fault. I was setting up on pretty hard ground on my last night and used a rock to pound in the stakes.

For the weight and size, this thing was exactly what I needed for my 10 day hike. I'm glad that on the updated version you're addressing the additional guy out points on the rainfly, as they gave me peace of mind on the nights that it poured.

Oh, I also used your inflatable pillow in addition to my nemo fillo elite. I tend to sleep on my side or stomach, so having that easily adjustable firmness was great depending on how I had the pillows arranged.

Pretty good solo tent

Just got done with a multi day hike in the sawtooth mountains of Idaho. For the most part the tent did its job, however I am disappointed in the rain fly. The fly seemed to be small for the tent itself. It did not cover the tent entirely leaving open gaps no matter how tight it was cinched down. Even with the unfortunate gaps there was ventilation issues and every morning woke up with it wet and dripping through the mesh each time it was brushed up against. The vestibule is small I wasn’t able to keep gear under it without out it caving in the side of the tent. My buddy bought the same tent, was on the same hike, and the same issue with the rain fly.

We have some great news! Thanks to yours and other customer feedback, we have upgraded the rainfly to now include more loops on the fly for guying it out, to increase ventilation, as well as production from rain. All tents now come with these upgraded features. In addition, we have shortened the poles to be just 15 inches, so it now compacts down even smaller, but still the same tent pitched size! Thank you again for your feedback that has helped us make these improvements. Please reach out if you would like to upgrade to the new version.

Update on my review

I finally got out on the AT for a hike on the 100-Mile Wilderness with the 1-person tent. It was rainy with the hurricane glancing the Trail. I used sticks to try to get the rain fly away from the tent to no avail. Ended up with water inside. Also, the mesh cargo pocket inside is at the foot of the tent--not convenient. With the two-person tent there are pockets on both sides at the head of the tent in addition to the overhead "attic". The storage options were great for those of us who need a bit of help staying organized. I like the 1-person tent option, but it does need some improvements. Were corners cut to keep it below three pounds?
