    This is the best backpacking tent (that isn’t $300+) I’ve found. It’s huge compared to it’s competition. The heavy Oxford floor is the best I’ve ever seen in any tent. Like any tent, be sure to seal the seams. This tent leaves weight in the pack for a tarp; use that if the WX is so bad you wish you had a heavier dome tent … and you’re still lighter than the dome tent. If you’re on the fence about it, you really have nothing to lose.

    Another home run! This is my second tent from River Country. Initially bought the Trekker 2.2 and love it. Purchased the Trekker V1 for long mileage hikes and wasn’t disappointed. The V1 offers plenty of space for us larger folks. The addition of a vestibule is a big plus; perfect for keeping your pack and shoes out but not out in the elements. The tub/floor is sturdy and corners seam tapped, stitching was straight and even. Roof is sealed along the seam. I plan to do additional seam sealing around the complete perimeter of the tub as I do with all my tents. As with the Trekker 2.2, the 1V has spacious vents along the long sides of the tent. Overall, you’ll be hard pressed to find a similar tent at this price point.

    So far used it only twice but first impressions are great. Very roomy though not too tall (I’m 6’1″). Some issues with stitching but those are negligible especially considering the price. Lightweight, packs small, seems well made and inexpensive. Price/value ratio is impossible to beat. Spray it with silicone waterprofer, choose your site carefully, use a ground cover and it will serve you nicely.

    After my first backpacking trip with this tent I’m very impressed! The floor material is heavy enough that I had no problems on two different sites with no ground cover. Although I’ve not yet used it in the rain, the stitching and seam sealing appear much better than I was expecting. It’s my first non-free standing tent in years and my first to use trekking poles and pitching was very easy. The stakes did fine in moderately hard soil. Plenty of room for me and my gear, an ventilation was fine. Love the vestibule and little details such as the interior pocket and the loops in the roof for hanging lights. I’m very happy with this tent!

    Ordered tent and receive it 2 days later; very fast shipping. The quality of the stitching is excellent. The tent is well designed and does not cost $500. It is nice and wide at about 4 feet and is 7 feet long. It is high enough without being too high. I set it up inside and seam sealed the ridge, the stakeout corners (mostly the stitches around the webbing and sprayed Akto sealer on it). The next day I set it up in my yard on a very windy day and then I sprayed it very well with high-pressure water and then let it sit for about 10 minutes before checking for leaks. Absolutely NO LEAKS! If set up in appropriate places, it should not have a lot of condensation. The tent sets up very quickly. The vestibule is small but adequate. The supplied cordage and stakes are of good quality. The stuff sack is actually large enough to get the tent back in it without saying bad words. For the weight, it is absolutely like a palace for the dog and I. You could sleep 2 people in this tent as it is larger than most 2-person tents.

    This tent rocks. I opened it up and from the start, had it set up in under 5 minutes. Incredibly easy and fast setup. The size inside may claim to be a 1 man tent, but there is room to spare. There is more room in here than some of the larger 2 man backpacking tents I’ve carried before and at a fraction of the weight. After setting it up, I did glance at the instructions, and they were spot on, and the only thing I might add is what height to set your trekking poles at for a first-timer. Stitching showed quality, and has seam tape in the corners for added water resistance. This is my first RCP tent, we bought 10 for the Troop, and thus far everything we’ve bought has been great.
