Simple, easy, quick. Got it for $175 with one of their email coupons and liked that the footprint and loft were already included. Had been using one of these on the river
Iím fine with the sand free mat on the beach but my wife likes a little protection from critters, for her any kind of tent is her break from the sand. Problem I was having with the BA (other than one of the zippers was blown), was that one pole length-wise arch design they like to use on a lot of their tents, bends that pole pretty hard and after a few years it gets pretty tweaked. Always had great customer service from them, just hadnít bothered with it.
Totally agree with whomever said it needs to be simple and easy, for me a river tent has to have clips and no sleeves. When you have to setup and take it down every damn day I want it to be fast and not deal with threading and unthreading poles. Or if we are busy in the kitchen or something and I tell my daughters to go do it it gets done. We sleep two paco pads, fitted sheet over both, flat sheet, and then a lightweight down comforter if we need it.
