That is the Greatest Promoting Backpacking Tent on Amazon and right here is my evaluate of the ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1….
it isn’t for everybody….
Weight : four lbs. four oz
Worth : On the time of filming; $115 for the Blue / Inexperienced and $55 for the Clay /Rust. I paid $79 after I bought this tent
Colours : There are two colours of this tent; blue / inexperienced and the clay / rust.
Measurements : 2’eight x 7’6, Middle Top: 36″,
There’s a Lynx 2, 3, four individual model obtainable.
Design : Freestanding that basically isn’t freestanding and I’ll clarify this in a bit.
This tent is an oddity of kinds as Alps Mountaineering describes the Lynx within the following method;
What’s particularly good in regards to the Lynx is that the partitions are principally mesh, which helps enhance air flow.
Whereas the partitions are of a better proportion of mesh, that is by far not their most ventilated tent and in reality, for summer season use I really feel that there are higher tent choices on the market if you find yourself relying on air circulation to maintain you snug. For my part, that is extra of a 3+ season tent and what I imply is that this; this tent has extra in widespread with a double wall, four season tent than a meshy Three season tent and I see it being the most effective of matches within the fall, winter and spring use because the polyester materials holds in additional warmth and blocks extra wind than the typical Three meshy Three season tent.
To me, this tent appears confused; it’s half 3+ season and three season however it isn’t a matter of neither space. An excessive amount of polyester paneling for summer season and never sufficient of it for holding in plenty of warmth within the colder months because of the mesh which is current.
Since AM has different tents that are a greater match for heat climate/summer season use, I wish to see them depart a majority of the mesh behind for this tent and make it a fanstastic 3+ season.
Glorious high quality for the cash.
Tall; permits for sitting up so long as you’re beneath 5’
Waterproof; I’ve had no points with leaking.
Rain fly covers the complete tent.
I don’t thoughts the rust colour tent.
Easy setup and break down
Measurement : for a mean measurement particular person, this was nice however for tall and extensive people, you could not like what you discover with this tent. I had a buddy of mine hop on this tent who’s 6’; he might lay flat however he couldn’t sit up.
I dislike the blue inexperienced model of this tent; not my tastes in any respect.
Slim – is perhaps an issue for bigger people
Tall- it is a professional and a con due to the peak, you must stake it out as it’ll blow away in a slight breeze until it’s anchored down. Throughout delicate winds, this tent is so tall that the pressure of the wind pushing on it started to drag the tent stakes out of the bottom.
Velcro pole straps are extraordinarily lengthy and due to that they don’t do an excellent job of securing the fly to the pole.
The excellent news is that the fly hugs the physique of the tent carefully in order that isn’t be a lot of a problem in relation to it being locked into place aside from it being annoying to connect; that’s the reason I usually don’t fear about attaching them.
As a result of the fly hugs the physique of the tent so tightly, air circulation is restricted to essential the door.
Restricted air flow and air circulation which implies condensation is feasible
Could be a extremely popular tent to sleep in and would require a very good breeze blowing by means of the door to really feel it.
It is a good high quality funds tent that for myself is one which I might solely think about using for cooler nights out on the path and that’s due to the design. On the warmer windless nights, it has been HOT on this tent and at instances, I’ve been depressing on this tent particularly when it heat out and it’s raining so the door is zipped shut. Uncomfortable for positive. When you want a funds tent which gives glorious air flow, check out the Zephyr.
AM continues to be a kind of firms who basically makes good high quality, funds gear which I’ve no downside recommending as I haven’t had any failures but. The fabric selections with this tent and a few of their others is questionable however perhaps mesh is dearer than the material.
