  1. Frank

    Was able to stop by the BadAss Tents shop to check out their tents in person before buying. Roger and Will were awesome showing off their different tents and answering all my questions about mounting. Originally went in to look at the Rugged, but was told of the Recon and was immediately sold. Have had the Recon for about a month and have spent 4 nights in it so far. No issues bouncing around the trails when out around Anza Borrego. Love the space in the tent with the flat ceiling and front vestibule. Impressed with the low profile of the tent when closed up, the height of the closed tent while driving was one of my main concerns when shopping around for the rooftop tent, and I barely notice the tent is on my roof when driving down the freeway.
