The Aries is a free standing pole system. It has a top cross pole which allows for more head room and interior space. With the mostly mesh wall design it allows for great ventilation for warm summer nights. This free standing tent is enhanced with 2 doors for easy entry and 2 vestibules for gear storage. Extra-large #8 zippers make opening and closing the doors and vestibules a breeze. The Aries has 7000 series aluminum poles that are strong and lightweight. Assembly is really easy with the tent clips that just snap in place over the poles. The poles are all shock corded together as one continuous system. With a factory sealed fly and floor seams, you’re sure to stay dry in rainy weather. The polyester fly and floor are urethane coated, factory sealed seams for maximum weatherproofness. The fly buckles to the tent, offering a much more secure attachment when compared to elastic cord. All these combined features, make the Aries a great choice for any backpacking trip.

Great – Bittersweet There is a lot to like about this tent and a few things that are worth complaining about.

Excellent 3 season tent for the money…but…. I’m editing this review now that I’ve given the Aries 3 a workout in heavy rain…only to find it leaks. The problem area is where the cross pole slots in to a tab over the door area. The tab is stitched in to the seam on the fly and pokes through the factory sealed seam – after an hour or so of decent rain the tab becomes saturated and starts to drip water in to the inner tent on both sides. I contacted ALPS about this and they seem to be aware of the issue (which I found strange, given their…

well made, good price Set up is a breeze. Poles, tent, and rain fly, are color coded making it real easy. Clips instead of sleeves also speeds set up. The small cross pole that increases head room puts pressure on the rain fly, the fly has reinforced connectors, extra bits of webbing, for the cross pole. Use them. Everything is right there with the grommets, for the poles. Good fly connectors, easy adjustments.
