User Review: Hillary Cabin Tent 9 x 12
Price Paid: $89
I purchased this tent back in the late 80's. We just went camping this weekend and used it again! We love this tent and wish they made them like this again. Cheap tent, no way. It is canvas and has NEVER EVER LEAKED. I treated it back when I bought it, and never had to treat it again, cuz I never had a reason to! Can't purchase canvas now a days, like back then...it all was canvas..nylon...WHAT?!!
The floor is super great, again, NEVER EVER LEAKED. The poles are aluminum, great product. No rainfly needed with these tents. I just know, that I wish I knew then.....what I know now...and that is..nothing compares!! Sad to say, it will go with us camping, but after all these years and a growing family we need to get a larger tent. Set up...faster on this old Hillary than any tent today!! I dread using a new model tent and having pole problems or tears in the fabric right out of the box!!
And...worry about the dew..I dare say rain!! Dew on these new tents is like a major storm for our old trusty Hillary..never will I get rid of it!! True so true...is that..they do not make things like they use to!!!!
