The majority of testing occurred from 2008 through the present, although reviews include our testers' experience with tents before then. Locations include all major ranges in the Lower 48, Canada (primarily in Alberta and British Columbia), Aconcagua, Alaska, Antarctica, Patagonia, and various other countries for shorter travel trips, like Turkey. More than a dozen people provided testing and feedback, as well as guide services, giving input on longevity and durability.
