Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, but EXCELLENT service We originally purchased this tent in 2009 but went overseas for a number of years, and had to leave the tent stored. We returned to the States, and upon bringing the tent out of storage, found that the coating on the underside of the rain fly had deteriorated into a sticky mess. This was a known defect that Black Diamond had since remedied, and their service team let me know that I should file a claim for a new fly instead of looking to purchase one. I took their advice, and yesterday received a box with a BRAND NEW TENT inside. So this is my most sincere gratitude for Black Diamond as a company who stands by their products & rectifies any defects without any hassle whatsoever. Thank you Black Diamond!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, easy to set up I haven't put this to any major stress test, but it's a good tent, with plenty of room for three people and a small, waggy dog. It would be tight with three large adults and their packs, but it's fine for three regular sized people, especially with packs kept outside. And for three smaller people, there's more than enough room. The only thing I'd change is to make the vestibules a bit bigger. You can't really fit three packs under these. Easy to set up and it actually fits back in the bag when you take it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy good waterproofing I've had this tent for a couple years, and don't use it very often because I usually use my Mesa tent. I went backpacking with a buddy who's tent is sub par, so I told him that he could share the room with me. Uinta Mountains in UT are usually pretty wet, but this time was crazy. It rained so hard that I woke up every hour or so, sure to find water in the tent - I was very surprised to find everything bone dry! As a side note, when I got home and dried out the tent, I noticed that the rain fly was sticky, and the seam tape had started to peel. I contacted BD to see what my options were, and they sent me a new fly no questions asked! I'm a BD man for life. I tell everybody about how awesome they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed, easy to set up, roomy for its size. My wife and I love this tent. It is well designed: it's easy to set up; it has large doors on each side; good pouches for your pocket contents; and best of all the trapezoidal footprint, wider at the head end, makes it seem roomier than other tents this size. This is a real review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to I've had the vista for about three years and have used it extensively in the front and backcountry. I have other tents but this one offers more space at the same weight as one of my other two person tents. If conditions are going to be poor I'll take this tent for the extra dry space. The rain fly is finally shot after too much UV damage. Seam tape is flaking off and tiny holes are beginning to appear at random. I'll be ordering a new fly as BD sells replacement rain flies at a very fare price.This being said, the rest of the tent is in great shape. Zippers are like new, mosquito netting has never needed repairing, tent floors are great, foot print is in good condition. Changes I'd suggest: As others have written, the fly zippers do catch (not a big deal). Increase the size of the vestibules. Having a way to lower the rain fly closer to the ground when using only the footprint/fly set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, Functional, Decent Sized BUT! the mismatched doors on the rainfly and main tent can be annoying. It really is a great oversized two person tent (or three people further from the car). I spent 5 nights in it on a river trip. It rained every night so the fly was used a lot, and the two doors open opposite each other so you have to snake through them. Also, the rainfly zippers get stuck on their flaps REAL easily...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tent, Awesome service I bought this tent 9 years ago in Chile, and it worked perfect until it had a fisure caused by wind in one pole segment (after 9 years of use). After talking with warranty service to ask for a replacement of that segment, they sent me A WHOLE NEW TENT. BD, you are awesome, excelent costumer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomb proof yet easy setup Bomb proof, yet easy to set up. Best value for a tough, wind resistant tent. Especially if you get the footprint (bought separately) because then if it's really hot, you can set up without the tent, just floor and fly. Rainproof, but airy.
