this is a great tent for the money. weighs 5 lbs, huge for 2 people, 2 huge vestibules, just plain awesome. i have a few complaints, but i just don't have time to say all that is good about this tent. first of all, it needs better stakes. one bent the first time out of the box. 2, it needs a better vent system up top. 3, it has 2 inside pockets, not the 4 it claims to have. that's it though. awesome tent.

I bought this tent because I camp 4 nights a week for an internship. It was easy to set up and roomy enough for me and my gear, but would be tight for two people. Very light and compact when rolled. Love the two side doors, easy entry. However, it was not waterproofed from the manufacturer so when it rained the first time I used it, the floor became wet. I would recommend you waterproof it before using, especially the floor.
For the price of 80 dollars, I could not have asked for anything better.
I needed a tent for a 6 day hiking trip. The last hike I went on I took an older 4 person tent that weighed a ton and took up too much room. The ledge tent its self is very light and can squeeze down to the length of the pole (11 inches) and about 4 inches thick which made it easy to carry inside my pack. During the 6 days hiking, 3 of the days were raining quite hard. If you set the tent up correctly you should have no worries about keeping dry. This tent is very roomy and I was able to sleep comfortably with my girlfriend and our pup (black lab). The tent is easy to put up and take down in about 5 minutes. One thing I will recommend is buying a tent footprint or tarp to bring along as the floor is thin.

Large, cool looking. Very high quality. a pleasure to have. Too large to fit in a back pack. I strapped mine to the outside, has the width of ground mat when rolled up and put away. Awesome looking tent!
Spacious interior plenty of room.
I looked at a lot of different tents before buying the ledge. I was looking for something in a 2person that was less than a 100 dollarr and fairly lightweight. It is not as light as I would like but still not too bad at just over 5 pounds. I read a lot of reviews and they were accurate. I have only used this once and not in any rain so I can't tell how it will hold up in rain or high wind. It is quick to set up but has no instructions but you really don't need any. It is very simple to set up. I like having two vestibules and seems to have more than enough room for myself and another if I would have another person with. Definitely would recommend unless you are looking for a 2-3 lb tent, but for a 5lb 2person tent it is a good buy.

Recently recieved the Ledge Scorpion tent. There were previous reviews regarding possible waterproofness but it appears that this will not be a problem. Both floor and rain fly are of same material and appear to be the 1500 mm nylon as advertised. Now for the problems; 1) The online version as well as the pictures on both the box and the Ledge website show the tent having two windows in the fly. In fact, there are two videos on Youtube showing the same thing. Our tent came with no such windows. Not a big deal as I see these as only being a potential source for a leak but if this is one the the features making you consider this tent, your tent may not have them. 2) the tent came with absolutely no instructions on setting it up. It is fairly uncomplicated but the tie-outs for the vestibule are essentially useless. The adjustment buckle does not hold any tension and there are no holes or loops to attach to a stake. I will hopefully correcting this issue with the placement of groments. 3) Emails to the LedgeSports website have gone unanswered for a week. If there were more significant problems with this tent I would be contact Overstock to request a refund. However, the issues are correctable or non-issues as stated above. So far it appears that it will fill the need for a lightweight 1-2 person backpacking tent. Weight is a big plus and certainly enought room.

A good product for the price. I've only used it once so far for a car camping trip but it did the job just fine. Enough space for two people with some gear. My friend, who's 6'+, and I fit just fine in it. It might be tight with large backpacks inside. There are nice small pockets near the bottom of the tent inside for storing personal items, which I found handy. The tent was very easy to set up as well. My only concern is that it might be kind of big to fit in a large backpack, but I guess it all depends on how you pack it. It is fairly light though. I will be taking this on a backpacking trip later this year, so I will see how it fares then. But overall, it's a great tent for the price and fits two people quite comfortably.

I purchased this tent for my son's birthday at his request. He hasn't used it so I can't give it an excellent rating yet but he was very pleased with it overall. It is lightweight enough that he can hike into the mountians without a lot of extra weight. His overall concern was for the durability and weight. I purchased a Ledge sleeping bag for him at the same time and he is very happy to have both pieces.
Hello rostrand, I'm sorry I could not find that we have any on Overstock.com. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 17, 2014
After speaking with the manufacturer I need to ask if your pictures are still accurate: they say the tent now comes with a new upgraded compression strap bag unlike the basic one still shown in your photos. Will I get the upgraded bag the manufacturer says they only use now if I order from overstock? And will the poles fold to an 11" width as the manufacturer says is now standard if I order from overstock? The maker says your photos must be out of date, but I want to verify. Thanks for a quick reply so I can order knowing what I will get! If anyone who has ordered can describe what they got I will appreciate it!aldksjfhajdk on Nov 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Do the see through plastic window strips get covered or closed somehow for privacy when you are changing clothes?aldksjfhajdk on May 6, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
While the plastic is difficult to see through from the outside there is no cover for the windows for absolute privacy. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on May 10, 2012
How can I be sure that when I order the Ledge Scorpion 2-person ultra light aluminum backpack tent, that i won't receive the Ledge Tarantula 2-person Dual Door/ Vestibule tent? They look the same, and after reading some of the scorpions reviews, I noticed a comment someone made about the scorpion only having two inside pockets instead of the four pockets it claims to have. The reviews also say that the scorpion did not come waterproofed as the ad also says that it does. It sounds as if the buyers are receiving the Tarantula instead of the Scorpion, as it is easy to fool someone when they both look the same. on Apr 15, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
