Chinook 1P tent - "heartily recommend"
Kenneth M (Burlington, WI) 12/15/2016 12:32 PM
I received my Chinook solo tent 11 months ago. 40+ nites of use in 12 different locations WI, IL, MN, so time for some conclusions. Very pleased with this solo tent, roomy with 2 doors, 2 large vestibules, self standing, very waterproof (used 18-21 Sept. in Chippewa Falls/Hudson area 5 inch rainfall 21st.), strong and versatile shelter. Components, outer tent 22.4oz basic part. Poles, 3 season 14 inch DAC 2 poles 10.7oz, added home built 4 season Easton 14 inch 2 main poles 12.7oz, optional 3rd pole 14 inch 4 season DAC 5.9oz, my supplied 8 MSR Groundhogs 4.2oz, home built guyline set of 6 1.5oz, home built groundcloth/footprint of Tyvek 4.2oz, my supplied bugnet 6.5oz, full fabric interior 14.2oz, packed into a Granite Gear 13 L packbag 2.5oz. Most often used configuration 3 season poles, 4season 3rd pole, fabric interior groundcloth/footprint, guylines, stakes, 3lbs 12.6oz. Lightest configuration, exterior only, ground cloth, 2 poles stakes, 2lbs 9.5oz. Full setup packs loosely in a 13L PackStuffer bag from Granite Gear. Guylines I added phosphorecent white polyester, but have rarely been needed. The fabric interior makes it warmer than all mesh but still gets good ventilation and noticeably reduced condensation. Even in fly only use it has limited condensation on the fly after a nites sleep. The only problem to pop up over 40 nites is snagging the door zipper on the fly body, easily remedied with careful use. The Big Sky line of tents is very interesting and offers custom ordered configurations. They handled my order promptly, delivered in excellent condition. Have had no other contact with them on service or repairs as none has been needed. Specifically I can heartily recommend the Chinook solo, solo+, and 2 person versions. Mine will see much more use for sure! Other solo tents I have owned and used, Eureka Mt.Pass solo, Mountain Hardware Wing solo, Mountain Hardware Stilletto solo, Big Agnes CopperSpur UL1 solo.

Awesome 4 season comfort

I've had this tent for a year now and it really is the lightest 1 person, 4 season "completely free standing" tent there is. Interior is a little tight but at around 2 1/2 lbs (1.13kg) for a 2 door, 2 vestibule tent, you have everything. You can squeeze a 78in x 25in (198cm x 64cm) pad into it or use a medium 72in x 20in (183cm x 51cm) for extra floor space. The vestibules are huge, and of course you have 2.
