So far so good!
The tent is advertised: roomy, easy to pitch, and just about perfect for the price point. The drawbacks were as advertised as well: one of the stake lines snapped my first night due to a very heavy frost. I was planning to swap them out anyway, and the tent lost some tension but mostly held it's shape. My partner was super skeptical about adding another tent to the closet, but they already prefer the X-Mid to our freestanding BA 3p. Looking forward to many more nights in the tent!

Great concept, very bad quality control
I had purchased this tent for my backpacking trip, tent had a cut in the inner piece and another one on the pouch, contacted drop (customer service was great by the way!) and they send me a replacement. The replacement tent arrived jam packed in a tiny box and after opening the box there was a cut on a plastic package and a cut on the pouch in a different area. Did not even bothered to assemble the tent to look for additional cuts. Since there was no damage on the box it seems like who ever prepared it for shipping did not inspect the product. Contacted drop customer service and is waiting on response.

Thanks for the additional information and sorry about this continued problem. That's is really unfortunate you got a warehouse damaged tent twice. We've never heard of that before, but perhaps there was a pallet shipment where someone in the warehouse really slashed it open and damaged a few. Drop should be able to help you out with this issue. If not, let me know and I'll help you out.

Thanks man, it’s a great concept and I like everything about it except the “cuts”, but that is something outside of the design.

Great balance of weight, durability, and space
Not the lightest of all tents but with dual walls, headroom, durable materials and zippers, you won't find lighter. Love it.

LoVe this tent!
I have been an hammock camper for 3 years. Now will start backpacking with my dog, so needed a tent. First tent I bought was a complete fail.. gettin drenched at 1:30 am. Then 2nd try ( on dry night ) was COVERED in mosquito bites. Thank God I found this tent! I had no problems setting it up by myself. And the room.. perfect. I am literally in LoVe with my new awesome tent. PS, mosquito bite free 😊

Easy Set up!
Hits all the features at the lowest price point. Set up is very quick after a couple iterations and great for rainy weather.

Great tent
Tent is awesome. Light weight, compact, waterproof, and well made. I'm still working on getting a perfect pitch on ground that isn't ideal, but that's not a tent issue. The tent is big and easily accommodates two full size pads. The physical footprint of the tent is bigger than I was expecting. That means lots of covered space for gear and boots, but harder to fit into spots with dense forrest. After a few nights in this tent, I can't imagine a more quality tent exists with this price to weight ratio. Buy with confidence. Mr. Durston done good!

This tent represents my first experience with a trekking pole tent. So far I have used a very strong but also heavy and bulky Hilleberg tent.  I was indeed a bit worried when using X-mid for the first time in the mountains. My husband and I pitched the tent at 2400 mt. It was starting to rain while we were looking for a proper flat spot and at that altitude it’s not so easy ... In any case, we made a good pitch and the tent resisted to both rain and wind (actually not much rain nor much wind). I can say that if the place is flat, 4 stakes is all you need for a stable set-up. Otherwise it’s useful to have 12 stakes with you. I fully agree with the suggestion to replace cords with thicker ones; now I use 2 mm Dyneema cords and they seem to work fine. For pithing I use a geometrical approach: I prepared a cord with 3 signs corresponding to the lengths of the two tent sides (the shorter and the longer) and to the diagonal connecting them; laying down the cord on the ground you are pretty sure to get a rectangular triangle and to find out the right place for your 4 corners stakes. In general I think the value added of this tent lies in its design which is really smart. So the most important thing is to pitch the tent having its design in mind!  I am looking forward to seeing how the tent “behaves” in very bad weather

All around a lot of tent for the money in a light package
Have taken the tent out a few times and have enjoyed each time. My wife is just getting started sleeping in the back country and this tent has become a place she feels comfortable. While the price and quality of the materials is fantastic it is the little details that set this tent apart. The pockets on the liner are in perfect positions, double doors and huge vestibules give more dry usable space. The ventilation between the vents, doors, and adjustable guy line lengths has been fantastic so far and camped right next to a creek this weekend with little to no condensation. All around a lot of tent for the money in a light package. I did upgrade the stakes to some MSR Ground hogs and the guy lines to the 2.5 Glowwire Dan suggested. Happy to hear they are addressing those with the next batch as they are the only weak spots in my opinion. Getting a Tyvek ground sheet for my next trip just to baby the tent but would purchase a matching ground sheet from drop if it is ever made available. Also wanted to thank Dan for his continued interaction and education around this tent and his other products. He goes far above and beyond what would be expected.
