Mesa Tent is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough, light, well thought out and comfortable. We've literally spent months in our Mesa tent during two long bicycle trips and are so confident in this tent that just purchased another one for future trips. Our first Mesa lasted through a 12 month and 17 month bicycling trip through the mountains and back-roads of Asia and India where we depended on it almost nightly. We were comfortable, warm and dry when we had to sit out multi day storms and the tent was easy to set up in the dark with frozen hands. It handled strong winds, heavy snow, blowing rain and we experienced no broken poles, stuck zippers, torn materials or leaks. All of our gear fit under the vestibules and the double doors were key to late night trips to the bushes. We wouldn't risk take any other tent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent tent and great customer service to resolve issue The tent is "big" enough to sleep 2 men comfortably without being awkwardly cramped. The vestibule is plenty to store our bags and cooking gear, boots etc. I had an issue where the fly became sticky and a visible decomposition of something white & flaky/ I can only assume it is the material used in the seam. I was anxious about the fly loosing its waterproofing as a result of this. I contacted BD as well as the online distributor from where I bought the tent, and both parties were fast to respond. I was given clear instructions of what to do (photos etc..) and was sent a brand new fly. This could have been a batch quality issue, but with such customer service, I am happy to spend the money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from sticky fly The Fly quickly deteriorated and became really sticky on the inside. This makes it difficult camping in dry circumstances were dirt frequently gets stuck to the fly. Also, the seam tape on the interior has slowly been cracking and flaking off. Black Diamond sent me another one but the same thing happened. This is unfortunate given the high quality products that they usually produce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product and awesome service I had this tent for many years, and took it out of my closet to use it after a long hiatus from service. The fly was sticky and I immediately emailed BD's warranty department. I did not provide much info other than the fact that I owned the tent and had bought it several years back. BD sent me a brand new tent within a week of receiving my email! No questions asked. Their service is unbelievable and this tent is easy to use and set-up, as well as light. I will continue to buy products from these guys because of the service they give and the R & D that goes into their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid tent Before moving to New England I used this tent all over the Sierra and the Southwest. Still do. Camping in the Northeast, you have to be prepared for wet conditions and it seems that I can never get through a trip without a downpour. My Mesa has never leaked a drop and is comfortable and steady in the strongest of winds. I see no reason why it could not be used for winter trips as well. It's a bit on the heavy side but that doesn't seem to bother me. Even at 66 yrs. old! No quality issues yet, no sticky fly, although I agree that the stuff sack could be an inch or two longer. I take care of my gear and expect my 5 yr. old Mesa to last me for many more years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The rain fly has become a problem I have had this product for less than a year. I have used it maybe three or four time. Up until now it has been a great tent. The under side of the rain fly has become sticky. It is a pain to put on and take off of the tent. My hands become sticky and I must wash them each time a touch it. I store it my garage which is insulated and stays at a steady temp. I have no idea what could have done this. User or manufacture error I can not say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around tent I love this tent. It is one of the best all around tent out there. It's very durable. I love the 2 vestibules. It's not the lightest, but it's not the heaviest also. I have used it on backpacking trips, canoe camping, rafting trips, climbing trips and even skiing trips. When you use it during summer, fall and spring, it's big enough for 2. But when you use it in the winter, it gets cozy. The option for using only fly and footprint is a good option, when you want to shave some pounds, but it's not the best if you are in a buggy place! Overall, I find that this tent is hard to beat. I really love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tent! Used this tent as I drove/camped across the country in a variety of weather conditions and it worked great. On my most recent adventure to AK, it was cold, cold, cold and very windy... and this thing was super sturdy and kept the howling wind out. It's also surprisingly spacious! Easy to set up, a little heavy for backpacking... but fits 2-3 people so weight can easily be split up. Also... I had the same problem with the rain fly as another reviewer (it became sticky with a white film and was unusable). BD sent me a new one right away! Such a great company with great products!
