180 South Tents

WHY ARE THESE TENTS SO CHEAP? These tents are extremely high quality and you are getting an incredible deal. The reason? They were made a few years back for a specialty high end retailer and sold for $400-$500 each. These are the ones that are left. The optional rain fly that comes with each one of the tents need to be re-sealed again with water sealant. You are talking about an $8 can of spray and 10 minutes of time the first time you use it. For this one reason, you are getting the deal of a lifetime on these tents!

    The three person model does have a $19.99 upcharge, but still a great deal!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for the heads up Romelle! Just updated!

    Weight?

  3. Geoff Nielson

    We know the weight of any of these? Lightweight (talking 2-3 pounds) that’s what makes a 2 person tent worth $400

    • JaxJay

      These are high end mountaineering 3 and 4 season tents. Not intended for front yard camping like a 20$ tent. Tents are worth what people are willing to pay in certain climates, environments and budgets. These were sold at this price $300+ in 2011. The 2 person tents still sell for over $120 on most sites.

      • Geoff Nielson

        Well, again, what you pay for in backpacking tents (I’m strictly talking backpacking) is weight. You look at Big Agness Ultra light tents, and the reason they are $400-500 is because the weight they shave off. These are a good deal regardless, but at 3 lbs 8 oz before stake weight isn’t worth more than $150. (who weighs a tent without stakes anyways and advertises that number?) I feel bad for anyone who paid full price for these lol.

        • JaxJay

          I agree, I think this is a good price ( under$100) for the quality in this case. Especially for novice/ intermediate wilderness camping.

    • JaxJay

      Oh and 3lb 8 oz without the stakes BTW

    This would have been great for my son. He is in the last few days of working with the MileHigh club. I may snag one up in case he decides to do it again next year.

    3 person tent upcharge just went up to $24.99 in the middle of me ordering 🙁

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      I am seeing that as well. Thanks for sharing! Just updated!

    Any idea what the height is of these tents. I know they’re not the stand up type of tents, but just curious of the height. I tried to do a search online but can’t find any more info than what’s on their site. I’m looking at the two person tents for my husband and I. The pictures make the Sequoia look bigger than the Pinion, but the measurements listed seem to say that the Sequoia is actually smaller inside than the Pinion. Am I reading this wrong?

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi there! Here is what I found. The Pinion floor dimensions are listed as : 90″ L x 56″ W, And the Sequoia floor dimensions are: 90″ L x 50″ W. Hope this helps!

    • JaxJay

      37 inches from floor to ceiling (height)

      • JaxJay

        Oops that was for the juniper, pinion is 44″ high from what I found.

      • dafogle

        what is the height on the Bristol ?

    • jrabbit2014

      Thank you Collin and JaxJay. I’m still trying to figure out why the picture of Sequoia appears that it’s wider than the Pinion, when the floor dimensions listed are the opposite.

      • jrabbit2014

        And what is a “vestibule” area? Sorry for all the questions. I tend to be one who overthinks things. But with such a great deal I want to make sure I get the one that’s right for us.

        • Geoff Nielson

          Vestibule is the are created between the tent and the rain fly. When the rain fly is staked out beyond the tent, it creates a small area where you can put shoes or you backpack without bringing them into the tent. A lot of Tent footprint diagrams will show two outlines – one for the tent body, and the other for the rain fly outline.

          • jrabbit2014

            Thank you for the explanation. Now it makes sense.

    What size zippers do the tents have? #8 or #10

  8. Cheryl

    Just saw this. Missed out on the Bristlecone (season) tent. Hope someone bought one- great tent and price!

  9. Kel

    Cheryl, I bought the Bristlecone tent. Happy!

  10. TARS

    Question is, how do I get the “optional” rain fly? I see no option in the checkout to add it to the tent that I’m trying to order…

  11. Kel

    From the product description: The optional rain fly that comes with each one of the tents need to be re-sealed again with water sealant.
    I took this to mean that each tent comes with a rain fly that you have the option to use or not. It is confusing, hopefully I’m not wrong.

    I bought this tent about a year ago from the Clymb.com and am now battling a return claim because the rain-fly waterproof coating deteriorated. I’m guessing this is the reason that they are selling them so cheap. The seem tape began cracking heavily and the waterproof coating became sticky. I recently bought KIWI Heavy Duty Water Repellent and it fixed all waterproofing issues even at the seams You just have to sure that you apply enough to thoroughly wet the seams. I probably wont battle the returns department anymore because its totally fixed. So when you do run into the same issue, you can fix it with that spray above. Im guessing they listed the weight of 3lbs 8oz WITHOUT THE STAKE because most serious backpackers upgrade stakes for weight reasons, this tent does come with very nice and lightweight aluminum stakes which I was very happy with. It’s unique pole attachment methods make setting up about twice as fast as conventional tents. Overall, I like this tent very much. Its lightweight for an intermediate backpacker.

    • Geoff Nielson

      You are describing the exact condition mine came in – peeling and sticky.

      In the description, they indicate that it needs to be “waterproofed” and “it just needs to be resealed.” but it is not as simple as just picking up a waterproofing spray.

      What they didn’t say was the old water repellency coating is peeling and flaking off at the seams and is sticky elsewhere – which also is a sign of degradation. To re-seal it you need to completely wash off/remove the existing coating, which sometimes has a hard time coming completely off. Fortunately, they have new products such as these -> https://www.mcnett.com/gearaid/blog/how-to-waterproof-a-tent, but it is still an involved process.

      I bought this tent knowing I would need to re-seal it, I just didn’t realize I would be battling with the old waterproofing.
