This tent is really great! I’ll just list pro’s and cons to keep this review simple:
1 – Fairly waterproof right out of the bag. Did not waterproof and left it out in a storm where we got 50mm of rain! (yes, 50!! It was coming down harder than I have ever seen… hail included.) There was only a very small (about a tbsp) puddle of water by one side.
2 – Seams are taped, fabric is of good quality.
3 – Large! Lots of room and tall enough to stand!
4 – Large windows, front area towards the door is mostly screened – very nice!
5 – Roof vents! Keeps it cool.
6 – Poles are very sturdy.
7 – SETS UP IN NO TIME!
1 – Tent pegs you get with it are CRAP. Spring for some better ones.
2 – In the bag, it is quite long, and needs to be stored near the back of my Sunfire’s trunk, or else it does not fit.
3 -Tent is heavy and difficult to get back in the bag (like most tents)
4 – Taking it down takes a bit of effort, although it still takes less time than a traditional tent. It’s just a different kind of hassel with this one as you have to fold everything in very carefully so you don’t pinch the fabric and tear a hole.All in all, and awesome tent. Just get some new pegs, waterproof the seams and fabric, and bring a tarp to put over top just for extra protection in case of very high volumes of water, and you are all set to go! Its an Awesome tent, well worth the $$.
