"I have used this tent 10-12 times in weather from one of the biggest thunderstorms I have seen, to crystal clear warm summer nights. The tent has been great and water was never a problem even in the huge thunderstorm. I am glad I spent the money to get this tent."

"a nice tent a little on the heavy side, but very comfortable and well vented. it worked fine in moderate rains and wind. also the screening on the upper part of the tent is very nice for stargazing."

"Nice tent! Accomodates 2 backpackers easily with room for each one's gear in the two vestibules. Used for 10 nights in the Sierras, mostly above 8000', no problem with condensation. No leaks on two consecutive days with rain, small hail, and wind up to 35mph at 10,000'. The tent was "out of the box", no additional seam sealing. Can be set up quickly by one camper because of pole insertion from one end of sleeves only, and color coded loops match to fly."

"I love my Roadrunner. I have had it out every weekend since Christmas, and have yet to have any regrets. My only fear is the factory sealed fly(heard mixed opinions). But I had it in light rain and snow with no worries. No condensation. And the fastpack (fly and footprint) option is the bomb. Until I sleep soaked from the fly, I would say I have one of the best 2 man tents in the market."

"I have spent over 150 nights in this tent working as a park ranger. It has withstood snow, high winds (70mph), pooring rain and hail. This tent rocks. However, after such extended use the floor has started to soak through from the bottom during heavy rains, even when using the footprint. Overall this is a great three season tent."

"We bought a Roadrunner 2 which leaked through the Velcro pole attachments. We sent it back to the store and they replaced it with a new one, suggesting that we should have seam sealed it before use. The second one also leaks with a steady drip in prolonged rain, and we have never been able to correct the problem, even after extensive seam sealing. We usually put a plastic bag over it if it rains. On the positive side, the tent is light and the perfect size for cycle touring."
