Big Agnes String Ridge 2 Tent Review:


The String Ridge 2 is really solid

I used the String Ridge 2 on a five day trip in the Weminuche Wildernss. We had rain everyday and two hard storms with night time lows about 40 degrees. The tent was very solid and waterproof. The only real problem was condensation on the inside of the roof at night. Even with the vent open the problem continued.
