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.
