Newer isn't always better May 14, 2012

I have an old alps mountaineering extreme 3, and I much prefer it to the new ones. Ive had it for years and it's still running strong, however the clear window in the rain fly is beginning to crack and wear through now. The tent itself hasn't changed much, Only colors and decorations. The difference lies in the rain fly. The new one is significantly larger than the old, allowing for more gear but its so large that the wind catches it easily. Even staked down the larger rain fly can be pulled up in a decent wind storm. This issue never occurred with the old tent. This tent can handle more than 3 seasons however, I've use it in the dead of winter and it's had no problems staying up, and it breathes very well while also being warm. Note, for added durability look to the "Outfitter" version sold on the alps website.

Alps Extreme three person April 30, 2012

got this tent and set it up last week. was surprised by the feature set on it. its the nicest three pole tent design i have seen. great rain fly coverage with two small plastic windows built into the rain fly. great for three kids or two adults. its the kind of tent you will appreciate in a heavy storm or downpour situation...

I give it 5 stars assuming you either Car Camp or can get someone else to backpack it for you. With the expedition(double thickness footprint) we're talking 9 lbs here. I've used mine 12 months a year all seasons for two years as a Scoutmaster. My son carried it on a 14 day hike thru Philmont and he may be taking it again this year - it has no discernible wear. I've literally floated on the floor when I didn't get to pick my site and watched other tents doing the swimming pool gig. I've also had 4 inches of snow on this bad dog and didn't know until I got outside. It's an amazing value, but for your backs sake if you're carrying it, backpack with something else.
