    "The sillhouettes that these tents make is just amazing. Like in a camping ground, I already know which tent is mine coz of the unique design. This is indeed the best quality tent, and it can withstand a windy night. I'm a strong believer for ALPS, and I am very loyal to them ever since I bought my first 2 person tent from them. "
