Well made, but quite small.
I was given this tent by a friend of my sister. She obviously didn't like it.
We set it up for a day and I was impressed by the build quality. (It's the older model with the little awning fly)

2nd Tent - Still leaks in moderate rain!
So disappointed in our canvas 210 Turbo tent. you pay the premium for a product of high quality. Its just not good enough our first tent leaked in multiple places seams, through the electric pouch at the front. I returned the tent to anaconda which was a long and delayed process after they send the tent to the manufacturer ( black wolf) for assessment.
They ended up replacing it after multiple follow up phone calls over 3 weeks. We have had the second one for maybe 12 months never had it in more than a sprinkle of rain.
But, just returned from a weekend we had one night of moderate rain fall and it leaked at the seams.
Time to return it again!
Would never buy again.

The spigot on each end of the poles forming the peak are meant to be inserted into eyelets on tapes attached to the tent and clipped on to the frame, to provide the necessary tension to support the peak.
This places undue strain on the tent, and the zips, mak...
