Summary

Nice tent for car camping. Easy setup with good protection from cold and rain. Cool when needed. Best for two or three people.

Pros

  • Easy setup
  • Large doors
  • Airy without rain fly
  • Good protection

Cons

  • Little inside storage
  • Fairly heavy

Excellent product for car camping after many uses. Plenty of room in the vestibules on both sides. Large doors mean no restrictions on entry and exit. A queen air mattress can even fit through either doorway. The two doors allow easy access and airflow when using the rain fly, which i almost use. However, on dry balmy nights, removing the rain fly allows good breeze and night sky viewing through the mesh ceiling and walls.

Very easy set up and take down once you learn the pole system. Comes with adequate stakes and guy wires, although the stakes bend fairly easily. The carrying bag is durable and separate bags for poles and stakes keep everything organized. However, at about 11 pounds, I can't recommend it for backcountry camping given the many lighter weight options.

I wish it had a couple of hanging loops inside. But with such large vestibules, storage is not a problem with this tent.

I've used it in moderate rain situations a few times with no moisture inside from rain. But I've not experienced long drenching rains. No worries from moderate gusty winds. When the temps dropped to mid-20s one night down from the sunny 50s of that afternoon, it stayed snug. But it is a little too large to warm up quickly when newly set up.

I think it would be tight for four people. Better for three.
