    Color coding. I get it when a complete novice tries to figure out how to cross the poles and attach clips in a typical configuration. But color coding two identical poles that run in parallel? Man, if there's a person who needs that then tying shoe laces must feel like getting a PhD.

    How much does it weigh and does it come with the ground sheet

    The previous version of this tent was the Flash series. It had the same pole configuration but used sleeves instead of clips. The biggest criticism I heard of that tent was that they should use clips not sleeves and that they should create vestibules at the entrances. That is what they did with this tent. I actually prefer the Flash because of the side vestibules and overhang at each entrance. In terms of clips I can go either way. I have never had a clip fail on a high quality tent (Sierra Designs, Big Agnes etc.) and if it did I would just replace it. I guess everyone wants something different.

    I think all those plastic clips are a malfunction waiting to happen

      Luke did a review of a Golite Shangri-La 3 a few years ago that was one of his favourite tents. It would be good to see some Luxe Outdoor reviews, thumbs up.

    I’ve set up much larger tents that have much less steps. It kinda seems like a bit of over kill.

    Stopped watching when it came to the color coded poles.
    I'd never buy a tent that needs color coded anything!
    And dude, it's a tent, 3 poles and and a few pegs, nobody needs an engineering degree to put up a tent ffs!
    Find some more worthwhile topic for your videos.

    I had a Sierra Designs Clip Flashlight for many years. Used it for extended backpacking trips.
    Best tent I've ever had, by far. Less than 3 lbs. all up, survived horrific storms, multi-week trips, etc.
    Not one tear, not one drip.
    I can say that, if their still the same, Sierra Designs is a company you can buy from with utmost confidence.
    The only thing I didn't like was the color. Blue is OK, but for me, "camo" is always my first choice.

  • Lee Benson
    Lee Benson 9 months ago

    @5:52 you say it takes a little bit of time to set up. In future test, PLEASE add in the real time it took to set up, the first time and then your best time. This info maybe of help if you have to setup in a hurry are in adverse conditions. Just a suggestion, Trying to help. Thanks Luke.

    P.S. Maybe add in a uninterrupted time elapsed setup from start to finish at the end of the review?

    A video on how would you handle one or more of those plastic clips breaking my be nice. A video on 'field' repairs could be helpful and entertaining. Thanks for the tent set up too. :)

      Two that I have my eye on are the British Scorpion 2 by Snug Pack and TCOP by Eureka.

      The TCOP has reversible camo rain fly that is lightproof and has 2 vestibules.

      The Scorpion sets up rain fly first, where the actual tent clips up to it. You can set up the rain fly quick if in the rain and finish the set up not getting soaked. You can also use just the rain fly as a hooch too.

      The bad part is weight and bulk. Not impossible but backpacking ant motorcycle camping are typically governed by what you can and cannot pack and carry.
      Don't forget the footprint, pad and sleeping bag. Stuff adds up quick...

  • Joe Sanders
    Joe Sanders 9 months ago

    I'm curious about the size of the footprint and the head room. Also the total weight.

  • Scott Moore

    Too much work. And if you do not have a soft surface the stakes will not work, and too many parts I think for what you end up with. Price that may have been in details. You really have a nice product review process. S

    Great video TY. It is already too much work for backpacking at 1 minute. We carry a tarp, but I am looking for an easy set up for a full shelter.

    stakes on the vestibule corners looks like a good idea, to get the fly stretched out to get air flow under the fly.
    do you get additional stakes for the guylines?

  • Jari Perho
    Jari Perho 9 months ago

    Honestly, all tents are easy to setup in calm weather. It's in the rain and wind when you start to appreciate pole sleeves and the Scandinavian pitch, where both inner and outer tents are pitched as one like any Hilleberg for example. I also personally hate those velcro attachment points. I seriously doubt anyone ever goes thru the trouble to use them in the field. They take too long and are awkward to use. It's a nice summer tent, I'm sure.

  • Ib Erik Söderblom
    Ib Erik Söderblom 9 months ago

    Good review. Its most likely a good tent. But please in a different colour !
    And it only showed my, why I always opt for a exosceleton tent. I'm not a fan of wet tent interiors 😊

  • Jeffrey Reardon
    Jeffrey Reardon 9 months ago

    Tent looks great. Only issue is the color. White? If this tent sees frequent use, the color might stain etc... How about a darker green? Maybe they offer it in different colors? I will check it out. Thanks,

    Cost and weight?

  • Hiking with Gus the Cattle Dog

    It would be great to see you do some videos on "light weight" tents like the Lightheart Gear or Zpacks single wall tents...

    Man, what an awesome video honestly, I like your channel real much and I really like the camping videos, but this tutorial was supper cool. Keep rocking and greetings from Mexico

      The MSR has some fabric in the screen shell whereas this has screen everywhere above the bathtub floor. That fabric blocks the view out of the tent when you're inside w/o the rain fly on. I love the MSR, but this is better for rainless summer nights.

    I think I may need four years of tent college before I could set that one up.
