    Details

    A different kind of final frontier.

    While its name might allude to visions of outer space and intergalactic adventures, the Brooks-Range Propel Tent: 2-Person 4-Season enables you to reach spaces and places in the backcountry and high alpine that no man has ever gone before—no matter the season. This 4-season tent boasts a freestanding construction that comes fully equipped with five DAC aluminum poles. However, should you desire to lighten your load, the Propel's attachment points are compatible with trekking or ski poles, which makes your overnight tours that much more enjoyable.

    More importantly, the Propel boasts a tenacious, polyurethane-coated nylon fabric that withstands elements of all shapes and sizes, and its fully taped seams further safeguard you from wayward precipitation and moisture alike. Additionally, the tent features reinforced stake points that not only assure longevity but maintain a firm grip on your tent, so you don't have to worry about your home base slipping loose and careening off into a black hole. And as its name suggests, the Propel is designed to accommodate two people comfortably, and the vestibules offer dependable shelter for your gear that's less impervious to the pitfalls of Mother Nature.

    • Reinforced stake points assure longevity

    Great design, just needs to be 6" longer

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I liked the fact that this tent was incredibly light weight for a 4 season tent and also liked the fact that trekking poles could be used instead of the outer two poles for set up.
    Unfortunately, at 6'3" there is no way I will fit in that tent besides in the fetal position. My head hung partially out the door with my feet firmly into the material at the back of the tent. With any condensation at all inside it would make for a very wet sleeping bag and miserable night.
    If Brooke's Range could add 6" to the length it would be well worth the added weight and still be a great price for a 4 season tent.

    ...

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

    So... my friend and I (5'6 and 5'4) tried this tent out in the Grand Canyon this weekend, we used two inflatable mumy sleeping pads, and both could not fit. They overlapped with the feet at the narrowest part of the tent. My feet (Womens US size 7.5) we uncomfortably hitting the "top" of the tent at the end and felt very crammed. I don't feel that two people fit comfortably in this tent, and even one taller person would have a very difficult time.
    We had some light weather and sprinkling intermittently throughout the night and water soaked through at the seams.
    The poles do not seem to fit the tent correctly. ou can't entirely close the main entrance due to the main pole going through it, which for ventilation was fine, but seemed odd, it looked like a design flaw since the zipper was made to close entirely. You absolutely have to stake down all of the sides, which is difficult to do with a footprint underneath. Without staking it down there is no support except at the front entrance of the tent.
    BUT this tent was super lightweight. So that was nice...

    ONE season tent: read on

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    This tent, at first, appears to be the deal-of-all-deals for a 4 season, single-walled tent. And, for someone 5 foot 4 inches tall, it probably is. Allow me to explain:
    This tent features 3 poles; 2 of which can be substituted using collapsible trekking poles. This supports the walls of the tent. I found with a total of 5 stakes, this tent sits very solidly against the ground. Do not MISTAKE this tent for a 4 season variety and/or a 2-person variety. A 4 season tent provides bug, scorpion, and snake protection. This does not. I did not thoroughly explore the reviews (including available online video) of how small this tent really is. The slope is so gradual, that no feet can fit at the tip of the tent. Meaning: If you are above the aforementioned listed height, you cannot lay flat inside of the tent. Brooks-Range engineered this tent to zip down the D-shaped door and lay the door material into the vestibule to cover SNOW. This would clearly mean any pests can crawl into your tent! No use to anyone below 18,000 feet. I had to return this tent. I could see ONE person side-lying and curled up inside of this tent for an emergency or single-person, single-night use. What a dissapointment! I gave this rating two stars hoping someone wouldn't immediately dismiss the review. Sorry: no pictures taken. You can find a 10 minute youtube video of someone setting this up on their ping-pong table. He's 5 foot 8 inches and also sleeps outside of the tent body.

    Not perfect, but super lightweight

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Let me first mention the shortcomings of this tent:

    - it's quite small and cramped for 2 people (note this also makes the tent quite warm in winter conditions)

    - it's kind of a pain to feed the main tent pole through the sleeve when setting it up

    - condensation tends to build up on the inside walls if not well ventilated



    That all being said, this tent weighs next to nothing and will keep you very warm. It's also quite affordable. It's definitely not perfect, but you also can't compare this tent to an alternative that weighs 8 lbs.

    Not perfect, but super lightweight

    Would be okay for one person

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

    I purchased this tent recently for my wife and I to use when hiking. We took it out for one night to field test it. It was raining and cold and we stayed dry and pretty warm. Although light and compact, a 2 person tent this is not. My wife and I are both short people but due to the angle of the wall at the foot end, it is impossible to not have your feet touch the fabric and get your sleeping bag wet. For one short person it would be adequate, but for two it was VERY small. I would not recommend this tent to anyone looking for a tent for 2. Also... there is only one door and vestibule making crawling into the tiny space difficult. I am returning this product and purchasing a half or quarter dome style tent instead.
