Great Tent

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

I took it car camping this past weekend to try it out and loved it. It was big enough to comfortably hold me (5' 8", not petite) and my Collie-mix. It was incredibly easy to set up and break down; I was relaxing while my friends were still working on their tent. It also kept me dry when it rained, while my friends' tent leaked despite having an extra tarp attached. (I may have gloated just a bit.) I was worried that my dog's nails would damage it, but it came out without a scratch. I had a comfortable, dry, bug-free weekend.

For those who like to use air mattresses, this will fit a twin size with room for a lantern and some smaller things as well. Any larger would not fit. Also, if you are tall you will brush your head against parts of the ceiling while seated due to the added height from the mattress. Not a big deal other than causing static in your hair and making it slightly more difficult to enter/exit. I personally plan on using a pad next time.

Overall I really loved this tent and can't wait to use it again.
