So the girlfriend got me a 1 man xpg ultralight tent from cabelas. She put a lot of time an effort into this one just curious how the tent holds up. It looks like it's a descent one.

WB21, I have a two person version I have owned for about 7 years or so. I usually use it when I sleep at my truck or trailhead for one night or so. I did pack it into the wilderness once when I took my kid. Nothing bad to say about them. There are better tents out there, but they generally just become lighter, but more $$$.

I have the two man version also. It has been a great tent, spent 2 days in it due to a snow squall and everything inside stayed dry, only downfall is it is heavy.

It'll work just fine. It may be a little heavier than some other tents but she'll hold up + the cabelas warranty is great. If its a gift I'd say keep her happy and roll with it!

Two in our party have them and they work well. Quick and easy to set up and durable.

One of my hunting partners has had if for quite a few years and he likes it alot it holds up to rain really well! Just as most said above its heavy and bulky ..

I've had a few of the Cabelas tents. Could be a decent family backpacking tent. Never had any issues with mine except being heavy but light comes at a price.

Thanks everyone. It is a bit heavy but I am going to try it. It sounds pretty good but the girlfriend did good.
