- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This tent was super easy to set up which was really great after a long day of riding. It's also well ventilated which helped with the 90 degree weather we were camping in.
dude is homeless (in Hawaii...not as bad) and lives in it year round. Who else would be better for a gear review.
There are two loops on top of the tent:...
There are two loops on top of the tent: one small loop with a black "torpedo" looking thing and a large loop. The main poles go through the loops. Which loop do I use and what is the black torpedo-looking thing used for. Someone said to put the small loop through the large one but I can't see what that does for you. I marked my tent poles in the middle and found it is slightly easier to get the poles in the right position before standing them up. I haven't had the tent in the rain but after sealing the seams I put it under my yard sprinkler for an hour and it stayed completely dry.
I think you might be referring to the tabs that allow you to keep the door/vestibule open. Just roll up the vestibule material then use that black "torpedo" thing to keep it opened up by inserting it through the loop. I'm not 100% sure if that is what you're referring to but a lot of tents use the same thing. Hope this helps.
actually i just thought of something. If you're talking about the inside of the tent that's probably for the gear loft. Check out this Youtube review. The reviewer uses it 24/7 and is very familiar with the tent. During the review you'll see those torpedo things and it's on the inside of the tent and is specifically for the gear loft.
Ha! Got it. I though that might be it. You're talking about the toggle and loop set up for the pole crossover. This is the link to the instructions- go to figure 5 and look at inset figure 4. That's it. I hate it when they do that, but I love the sprinkler test! I'm going to make my lawn look like Woodstock now and check for leaks in every tent I own.
What are the small little pegs attached...
What are the small little pegs attached to the four corner grommets for?
Also, what are the small straps to the right of the door and the small strap on the front door for?
Okay, so the small pins at the four corners are receivers for the pole ends. What you're looking at are actually the aluminum pole sleeves that slip over those pins. The small straps to the right of the door are going to have corresponding hooks on the inside in order to hold the door flap open. And the small single strap that's hard to see on the door itself (actually on the inside of the mesh) is going to serve the same function as the door straps but is going to be for the nylon flap that zips up and covers the screened portion of the door. Since I'm on it, even if you already know what they're for, the four loops on the outside corners of the fly (you can only see 3 of them) are for attaching guy lines in case of wind and/or heavy rains.

great tent easy set-up
Took this tent out this past weekend up to about 10k ft elevation in the Uinta mountains for some mid spring camping. This tent set up super easily and quickly and seems to be very well made with great storage and nice and tall on the inside! My wife was able to inflate the queen sized camping mattress outside of the tent and then fit it in the front door which was really useful in the middle of the night when the mattress decided it didnt want to hold air anymore. This is not a huge tent when all put away but i wouldn't ever try to take this on a back packing tent, maybe split between two people and carried a mile in would be ok but no ore then that! We got this tent to be our car camping tent and needed it to fit a queen mattress, two dogs, and all the other things that go with that with room to spare and thats what it does! The ONLY possible complaint would be that the front does not hold taught enough to make the door easy to unzip but the tent was pitched on a slight slope so it may have been because of that. We will be taking this tent on a multi day high desert camping trip this coming weekend so look for an update!
