High Peak HyperLite Extreme - 4 Season - 2 Person Tent

High Peak HyperLite Extreme - 4 Season - 2 Person Tent

Product Review (submitted on August 28, 2015):
Conditions, Three nights in the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains with elevations ranging from 10,500 to 11,600 feet. Temperatures in the mid 40s at night with clear skies and light winds, not really a great challenge for the tent but who always wants extreme weather. Two people shared the tent, My son Chris who is 6-1, 170 lbs and me who is 5-11, 245 lbs.
The tent is very compact in it`s provided carry bag and easily fits back in the bag after you break it down. It is the easiest tent to set up and break down that I have ever used and I have used a lot of different tents. The vestibules on each side are not huge but big enough to put your boots and some gear under them to keep dry. They roll up nicely in the center for easy access to the doors.
The tent was plenty big inside for the both of us but anyone taller may feel cramped. The big doors on each side provided great access and incredible ventilation when only the screens were closed. The also allowed nice star gazing the way the angles slope in on the ends. The tent was very well insulated from the outside when everything is zipped up and was quit a bit warmer inside than the outside air, We actually unzipped our Sleeping bags and used them like blankets. After Chris ate Mexican Style Beef one evening the tent was actually too well insulated. I am not sure of the dew point where we were but there was no condensation inside the tent which is always a plus. The materials seemed very strong along with the poles for how light they are and the floor area was especially durable. The outside cover came almost all the way to the ground so I would assume everything would stay dry inside in wet conditions. One question I had was would you be able to use your camp stove under a vestibule in the rain, I feel this is important.
Overall I think this is a great tent that is easy to use, very packable and I would feel very safe inside in most any conditions. I am looking forward to my next trip using this tent and would highly recommend it.
