"Not many tents set up faster than an Exped Gemini II ...". Boris Gnielka from the German Outdoor Magazin tested this 3-season tent for 3 months. Here his review (Outdoor-Magazin 10/2015):


Can the lightweight and airy Exped Gemini II prove it's worth in the mountains?

There are not many tents that set up faster and easier than an Exped Gemini 2: feed 4 short poles into the pole sleeves and connectors, peg it down and your done. With it's width of 1.25 m it offers enough space for 2 sleepers since the walls are nice and steep. The large mosquito mesh panels create excellent internal climate on warm nights. In cooler nights or when rain approaches you should attach the rainfly, which is done easily, but does not prevent a slight breeze within the tent. This is great when it's warm, but not so on cooler nights. For this reason it's not the ideal tent for colder climates or high altitudes. But makes it the perfect tent for warmer regions thanks to it's low weight, ventilated canopy, generous size, two vestibules and easy setup that make it so comfortable.
