Short Review: Excellent TENT!! I just got back from a weekend camping trip (Very cold camping trip due to the burn ban in east Tennessee) and I must say, this tent performed wonderfully well and the quality it outstanding!! This tent is built just as well as my $250 tent from REI and has the features to match! Super easy to setup and packs back down in a jiffy!
1.) Easy to Assemble – Instructions are sewn into the bag so you can’t lose them, but the tent is a simple two pole design! I had it up in about 5 minutes
2.) High Quality Materials – Aluminum Poles, fully taped ripstop fabric, AMAZING Zippers, and overall just a very well made tent
3.) Waterproof – Fully taped seams and a full sized rainfly help keep you dry! It did come a very short shower while I was out and nothing got into the tent.. We are in a drought (At the time of this review) so we haven’t had significant rain in a while but I have no doubt that this tent wouldn’t keep me dry!
4.) Footprint is available for this tent and it has the places to attach the footprint! This adds warmth and protection to the bottom of the tent
5.) Aluminum Poles – I never buy tents that have fiberglass poles anymore.. Aluminum all the way
6.) Easy to repack
7.) Perfect Size – Plenty of room for 2 (Store gear in the vestibule) or TONS of room for 1 with gear stored inside. For solo backpacking I ALWAYS use a two person tent when I am not backpacking with my hammock.. I love the extra space
8.) Weighs under 5 pounds if you leave the bag and extras at home! Packed weight is only 5.5 pounds so not bad their either
9.) Excellent Value – This tent is made just as well as my $250 REI tent.. The value of this tent is great! Its hard to find an aluminum pole, taped seams, high quality tent like this for under $200 anywhere! This tent is an AWESOME Value
10.) Vestibule Area for storing gear
11.) TWO DOORS – this is a must when you have two people!! No climbing over your tent partner when nature calls! This tent offers two doors!
12.) Bright Color is easy to see in your campsite after dark
13.) Great Ventilation – This is important when it comes to tents.. If not, condensation KILLS!! Especially on cold nights.. This tent offers wonderful ventilation!
1.) Footprint must be purchased separately but this is common for most tents
Overall: I am very impressed with this tent and own SEVERAL name brand tents.. This one is made just as well as all of them!! Will it hold up as well? I have no idea, only time will tell BUT from the looks of the tent, the build quality is outstanding and this tent will last for a very long time!! I highly recommend this tent to ANYONE!!
