Purchased two of these in the single version for my sons (11 & 13) who are in scouting. That way they can carry their own gear and not have to worry about a tentmate on a trek. They have camped in them for two years now in the varying weather that South Carolina can throw at them. They have worked well for the price. Not as light as my Hubba, but easily gets the job done. Much of their gear has come from Massdrop. they can get better when they get older, but as they keep growing and learning how to take care of gear, these foot the bill. My major complaint is actually the storage bag. designed like most, for store display rather than real use, it is a square about 14 inches on a side and two inches tall. Anyone have a pack designed to carry a tent that way?
HI.
I just like to see the price of the tent that you promise when sign up. But you did not show any price so I`m not sure if I even want it .
Possible to buy just the footprint?

You can buy the footprint on their site if you want

Man I was so tempted to get this as it was one of the top items on my wishlist, but I think I might pass on this drop as I read that there is a big condensation problem if used with the rainfly and you didnt stake out the guylines!
Anyone else here who has had it before and can comment on the condensation issues?

You are going to have condensation problems with any tent if you let the inner walls of the tent touch the flysheet. That's why staking out the guylines is important.
Drop says 4 person is +$50, but when you join, it is +$55?
The Salida 1 looks identical to my North Face Storm Break 1. Same specs too. Great little X-frame design. It’s served me and my dogs well for 3 seasons. Never got wet once. Time to upgrade to something ultralight and non-freestanding now though. (*cough* *cough* Gossamergear drop? *cough*) If not, I’d be all over this drop. Great deal.
Where are the specs on the one person?

This is an awesome replacement for my North Face tent that just busted. I love always having a freestanding 2-person tent on hand, especially at this price. It's amazing for whenever a friend wants an intro into camping/hiking. Buying this one at this price lets me spend money saved on other lightweight set ups for just myself when I want to do longer hike-camp excursions with my UL friends.
This is a good budget tent. It was my first tent when I started backpacking, and the only real problem with it is that it's a bit heavy. But the build quality is solid, and it's really easy to set up.

I would agree! This was one of my favorite tents! I have owned one for 4 years now and it has held up so well. I've gone lighter now, but on trips that weight isn't a biggy, its in my pack. Take care of it and use a footprint and should last for years.
I've owned the 2 door version of this tent (Gunnison) for nearly 20 years. It has been the perfect tent for so many places and weather conditions. Buying the Salida for my son as he begins backpacking.
I just spent 6 nights in this tent. 1 in Moab, Utah, 3 in the Teton Mountains and 2 in Yellowstone National. Encountered rain, a little wind and near freezing temps at night. Tent held up to everything and I stayed dry the entire trip. Great purchase and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Only complaint is that the stakes that come with the tent are not very good. A friend on the trip had the same tent as me and bent some of the stakes quite a bit. I purchased some bigger heavier ones from Bass Pro and would recommend doing so if you are camping anywhere with compacted ground.
My buddy just used this tent in Iceland. We made the following video showing how it stood up to rain and 30mph winds and did not break. Other brand tents had broken poles, not the Salida. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/HjlljecaDFU

We have Kelty Gunnison, which is very similar tent, and it has held through similar conditions out west. We are planning to take it to Iceland next fall...can't wait. Nice to know that it did great for you in those cool, wet and winding conditions.
Do these have the fiberglass or aluminum poles?

They look like aluminum poles in the images.

DAC poles are made from an aluminum alloy.
