Some say it can be used in 4 seasons, but, there are better solutions for those cold cold blizzard winter storm warning type back country trips. But, the fact that some would consider taking this tent into the tetons in the winter says something about how stout this ultra light shelter really is. This one owner tent has never been used. It has been pitched a couple of times on grass just to test out the very cool dry pitch technology. This resulted in the heavy duty tyvek based tent foot print getting soiled with dirt and grass stains on the bottom.
But, no worries with this tent, its in perfect condition. (photos of the pitched tent are stock photos). The tent stuff sack although from mountain hardware is not the original, although very similar to it. An exceptional tent, in excellent condition, ready to rock n roll.
