I've had a lot of tents in my life, but the Fast Stash tent is my Favorite. I use it all year around and havent had a bad thing to say about it yet.
Recently got the Fast Stash 2 Tent and took it on a 30 mile weekend trip. I don't have many good things to say about the tent other than that it packs down smaller than most tents. It says that there is room for two people and their gear, however I didn't find this to be true at all. The slant of the tent sits only inches above your face which is an issue with the morning dew and light rain that we faced. It is awkward to set up and takes a few tries adjusting the guy wires to get it stable and weather ready. I would not recommend this tent for anyone.
It's a 2/3 season, single-walled, ultralight tent that sleeps two people. The design is somewhat unusual. It looks something like a cross between a ridge tent and a caravan awning. There is not a pole along the ridge however, just one lightweight DAC pole at each end. The structure is held up by the tension of guy ropes. The fast stash is ideal for camping on those rainy summer days, where you can sit inside your tent, snug and dry, observing the world through the large door. With your camping stove sat under the cover of the awning, the promise of a nice cuppa and a slice of cake ensures your happiness. Being single walled, condensation can be a problem and of course, it is not as warm as a tent with a separate fly and inner, but at only 1.84 kg, the Fast Stash is light and roomy for a 2 man tent. You can make it even lighter by substituting the tent poles with trekking poles, bringing the weight down to 1.3 kg. Since it is not free standing, the MSR Fast Stash can be a bit tricky to put up and is best done by two people. One person to hold up the poles while the other pegs out the guylines. According to MSR’s instructions the best method is to insert the poles into the flysheet, with their other ends near the door entrance. Then stake out the guy ropes. The side awning can be staked outwards to allow ventilation through mesh panels on the side walls or, the side awning can be pulled tight across the side of the tent to provide protection from the elements. For maximum ventilation, the side awning can be rolled up. The flysheet fabric is reinforced ripstop nylon coated with Durashield polyurethane and silicone for protection from the rain. The seams are taped the the guy points reinforced. There is a also a built in bath tub floor for protection from water on the ground. The MSR Fast Stash tent is good quality, versatile and lightweight. Its ideal for camping when the weather is hot and showery. It has plenty of room for two people and gear, with easy access and ventilation. The awning style porch provides good shelter for cooking when its raining. The main drawback is that its not suitable for use in high winds, but then it is a 2/3 season tent after all.
