    Default Cabela's Alaskan Guide Geodesic Tent with Fiberglass Poles 6-Person

    Cabela's is having a sale and there a 100 bones off. I've been eyeballing theme for some time now and I'm thinking about getting one before there sale ends. If you have one, I would like hear how it has worked out for you. Was it a one hit wonder tent or have you got lots of long term, awful weather trips out of it?

    Have had one for years. Good tent. Went through a storm with 70mph + winds. It did blow down, could not find cover from the winds, but popped back up when wind subsided. Always thought I wanted the aluminum poles until that storm. They would have bent and I'd been out of luck. The 4-man tent did not blow down in that storm. Jim

    Picked up a used one at a pawn shop for $90 and bought some new poles for it-still a great deal and a very good tent!

    Good tent and a good price.

    We have 15 of them and never had a client not like the quality!

    I have the 8 man with the fiberglass poles and have had it for a number of years. It has never given me a moment's concern on any trip. I have used it across all four seasons, ranging from simple overnight trips to a caribou trip last year that was nearly two weeks. It was a lot of money at the time but in hindsight some of the best money I've ever spent.

    I've stayed in them quite a few times. Very nice tent and pretty much bomb proof. If I ever ditched my Arctic Oven, that's be the tent that would take it's place.

    Spent 10 days in the Brooks range on a float hunt in this tent. Solid tent for sure.
    Pretty much saved our lives in some pretty messed up weather.
