Summary

A durable and great roomy tent for us bigger people. I'm 6'4" and can almost stand up in it.

Pros

  • Durability
  • Spacious
  • Nice ventillation

Cons

  • A little bulky, doesn't fit in the kayak too well.

I bought this tent on clearance at Sears for just under $40. LOVE IT!!! I've been using it several times a year for about 10 years. As I am a bigger guy, this tent has plenty of room, surprisingly it looks small from the outside.

Put some scotch guard on it, and you are good to go. This tent even made it through a tropical storm, while several other tents did not.

Just make sure to air it out. I accidentally forgot to one time, and the connectors on the poles rusted, and the zippers. Some liquid wrench fixed the zippers right up.

Both locker poles snapped after only a few uses. We ordered new poles and one snapped the first time we set it up. It also leaks even after we sealed the seems! I wouldn't recommend this tent, even though it was roomy and had good ventilation.
