My Boy Scout troop had about a dozen of these tents that we used on camping trips every month. They stood up to all of the abuse that dozens of 11-17 year old boys could heap on them and never failed to keep us dry. It might be a bit heavy to use for multi-day backpacking trips, but for one or two nights on the trail, its not bad, especially if you have a partner you can split the parts with, i.e. one carries the tent, the other carries the poles and stakes. We used them so much and they are so easy to assemble that I could set one up by myself in pitch-black night, in a rainstorm, in less than 5 minutes. Truly one of the toughest, best-made 2-man tents money can buy.
Purchased my first Timberline in the mid 1980's. After going through one hurricane and numerous 2 and 3 day downpours it finally gave up the ghost last season. Never let any bugs in, was totally waterproof,(until last year)kept out the wind. In my opinion for the money you couldn't buy a finer tent for the money. I've already purchased my second one and I'm sure I will never need another tent. By the way it can be set up in about 5 minutes!
