Sheep scouting in July I usually go light. I recently purchased a Nallo 4 GT (Barney's) and wanted to get more familiar with it for my August trip so I packed it in (4500ft). It was a beautiful July day until about 4pm then the weather turned. We setup camp about 10pm in heavy winds (gusts 30-40) and used the huge vestibule for a little Mountain House buffet. The winds increased and with it rain and snow. About 2pm the next day we decided the weather was not going to break and packed up a got out. As far as gear goes this is the best tent I have owned. After getting pounded all night with wind/rain/snow not one drop made it inside the sleeping area. The vestibule was pretty moist from blowing snow with the vent being open all the way. Condensation was not an issue next time I think I'll keep the front vent mostly zipped up. My Hilleberg took some serious punishment and came out looking like new. I slapped myself a few times for thinking I should buy a $700 dollar tent but if your are serious about getting up in the mountains you need the best gear.
