Summary

Terrific tent, good size. A little heavy with rain-fly. Small pole broke on third trip.

Pros

  • Comfortable, roomy; fits twin inflatable bed
  • Sleeps 2 adults comfortably
  • Relatively compact

Cons

  • Small pole broke on third use
  • No privacy unless using rain-fly
  • Not free-standing; must be staked

Setup was easy, though tent is not free-standing.  Handles moisture well, no moisture inside with rain-fly on.  Well ventilated with easy roll-up sides. Roomy inside with room (outside tent) under rain-fly for equipment. 

Tent and accessories are easy to pack in ample sized bag that compacts down with straps. Tent has handy inside 'junk' pouches hanging from the roof.

On the third use the small pole split, so the foot area collapsed; the tent was still usable, but would not have been if the large pole had split. I'm working with the store now to get backup poles as they're not available as accessories. It will be inconvenient to have to carry extra poles as original aluminum ones can not be trusted.  (Gorilla repair tape did not hold up after two attempted repairs).

Welcome to Trailspace, K Brooks! Thanks for sharing your review. If you have any pictures of your tent to show off its size and where it had problems, that would be great to include.

Thanks for the review, K Brooks. Where do you purchase a tent like this? I'm unfamiliar with the company.

Pros

  • Small size
  • Waterproof

Cons

  • Poles break

Woke up Sunday morning a happy camper. The tent had not leaked during a heavy rain, but even though the rain did not have wind, a pole had split. I was not a happy camper.

When I returned home I called Academy and was put on hold numerous times. They finally agreed to replace the tent if I drive the 100 plus miles to their store next week. This only after I said, "Do not put me on hold again, I will just go on line and report Academy sells trash and does not stand behind their product."

Summary

This is a good starter tent for a backpacker on a budget or someone who primarily does drive in camping or short overnight trips. It is a good tent for the money.

Pros

  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to set up
  • A good starter tent or for drive in camping

Cons

  • Not free standing
  • A bit on the heavy side for backpacking
  • Bulky when packed

I bought this tent about 2 years ago and have used it on several camping trips including multi-day backpacking trips. It has held up well including stormy wind gusts of 35-45 mph. It has not had any leaks or condensation problems.

It is not free standing which is a drawback, especially when setting up in windy conditions. It also takes up quite a bit of space when packed and is on the heavy side for a backpacking tent.

Summary

I took this tent for a couple of backpacking trips in Israel. It's a 2-person tent and easily roomy enough without gear. With gear inside its a bit cramped, but to be expected since its a backpacking tent.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Roomy
  • Sturdy poles

Cons

  • Not freestanding

It does have two shoes vestibules outside though which is nice. It's lightweight (5.1lb) considering the price. Found it to be sufficiently durable as well. 2 side doors with mesh make it easy to air out on hot summer days.

My only gripe is that the pole setup does no allow it to be freestanding, meaning that you have to set it up on soft ground where you can hammer in poles. This is obviously not a drawback if you understand this beforehand, but probably an unwelcome surprise otherwise. No problems with zippers.
