I've never heard of tent poles described as "aluminum tipped". Fiberglass poles have aluminum ferrels on the ends of each pole section. If that is the case here, I'd hold out for a tent with true aluminum poles, which are lighter, stronger, don't splinter and are much easier to work with when pitching a tent.

The photographs of the tent at the website make it look like they're full aluminum poles however. That's something I'd definitely recommend checking before ordering. It's worth it to avoid fiberglass as a pole material.

And only four tent stakes is ridiculous. Based on the pictures alone, they've used a minimum of eight to pitch that tent: four in the corners, two to stake out the vestibule and another pair for the guy lines coming of either side of the rain fly. That's really misleading to provide only half the number of stakes the manufacturer itself uses to pitch their own tent.

It's a shame because otherwise, it looks like decently designed tent.

For a 3p tent that's pretty light. That's 1.5lbs per person which is about as light as it gets unless you want to spend big $$$$.

Very scant on information such as nylon type, breathability, and water resistance and yes not sure why they include only 4 stakes.

The single person version seems to have the correct information : https://www.winterial.com/collections/tents/products/winterial-elite-single-person-tent-room-for-gea... [winterial.com]

Aluminum poles and 14 stakes.

So I pulled the trigger on the purchase of this tent. It is a beautifully designed tent. The (2) poles are full lightweight aluminum. Tent now has clips for the poles instead of guide collars. Also included 4 guy lines, 13 aluminum stakes (possibly missing (1)). The tent has mesh on all 4 sides. Floor appears to be heavy 300d nylon. The rain fly is well made with a reflective thermal underside with side vents for air circulation in the tent. Initial impression, so glad I purchased. I will be using it soon on a 4-day back country backpacking trip and need it to perform. Ill bring a hammock just in case failure occurs but dont think so.
