Great Size

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've only set up the tent 3 times, and it gets easier every time. It's also pretty light. I haven't had any experience with it in the rain yet, so can't comment about that. I love the fact that there are two doors, and that you have a clear view of the beautiful sky when the fly is not needed. I had a foot print from a previous tent that I cut to size, and it rolls up nicely with the tent and fits into the bag. Also, the head room is comfortable. I can't stand up straight, but there's plenty of room to move around for me, my dog, and my pack.

Surprisingly terrible online experience.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I saw this tent on sale, saw the "100% Guaranteed Returns" and thought, why not. Some people I know told me to look into this particular tent a little further, and it turns out the rain fly has leaked at the pole crossing for basically everyone who's ever bought it (which might explain why it's on sale), and now I have to pay for return shipping. Worst online buy ever.

Great first impression

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I recently received my tent and have set it up a couple of times and so I am sharing my first impressions. I'll update it when I have more experience with it.

First, I was able to set this tent up in about 6.5 minutes just by looking at the picture of it that comes on the bag. There are only three poles so it's not too complicated. The hardest part was figuring out which end of the tent was which.

The rain fly was also a little confusing to figure out how to attach correctly. But that was also due to the fact that I couldn't see which end of the fly corresponded to which end of the tent. Still, this part only took about 4 minutes and I'm sure it was just as fast if not faster the second time. With two people this should be a piece of cake!

When I was setting the tent up in my front yard it happened to start raining. If you've ever been in Memphis and have experienced one of our random flash rainstorms, you know that they can get pretty heavy. Once it was over I checked out the interior of the tent and couldn't find any leaks or water so that was good! I'm not sure how it would hold up for a more extended storm (this one was about 45 minutes).


Just purchased this tent on SAC, can you guys advice as to what footprint works with this tent?


I bought this one for thirty dollars and it works great since it was made specifically for the tent.

Does this come with a footprint?

Best Answer

This does not come with a footprint, sorry. The footprint will add 10 oz to the overall weight and costs about $42.99, but we do not have it in stock right now.

It does however come with the gear lofts which is very handy. I used this tent during a hail/rain storm recently with no ground tarp or footprint since i thought it was in the bag and had zero moisture issues. Did a great job

Perfect Tent for 2 + Dog!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this tent earlier this year and was just able to use it this past weekend in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan with my girlfriend and dog. It was absolutly perfect size for the 3 of us. It would be pretty cozy with 3 people in this, but would be fine with two adults and a child. Our dog had room to move around in the night and we both slept great. With two people it set up in about 3-5minutes. Having doors and vestibles on both sides really helps. Quality is also great- I was concerned about my dogs paws and claws on the mesh, but we had no issues! I shopped around for awhile and this is def a great option.

We need to upgrade up to a 3 person because we now have a dog. What size dog do you have? Ours is a full size that likes to hug the bed. Thanks

By far the best 3 person tent.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Sets up nice and simple. did it in the dark in less than 5 min, and only the second time. For its size its light. great use of space and roomy up top. Camp and back pack with my bird and I can even have another person along no problem. dual entry and vestibules are great, great design. Vented fly works great, kept tent not so hot in the sun, much better than I thought it would. I'm glad I shopped around and found this. I had to add this... Went to Rio Grande Gorge and it rained 2 nights one night very hard with light ice. tent was Awesome I didn't have to stay the second night but this tent made it worth while for sure. and that was with only 2 stakes for the fly doors.
