User Review: Northwest Territory Chippewa 8-Person Tent
Ease of Setup: very simple
Price Paid: $110
I only give this tent 2 stars because it is fine as long as it doesn't rain. Even in a light drizzle the closet space leaks and gets any gear you may have stored there quite wet.
The corners are poorly designed and even after using seam sealer rain just pours in. We had a major storm blow through and all 5 of us ended up huddled in the center of the tent, our bedding drenched and we were shivering.
The zipper on the door constantly sticks. My 6-year-old had a very difficult time operating it himself. Also where the zipper meets the tent there is a very small gap, just large enough to let a few bugs in.
I could only recommend this tent to someone with no children and if you were absolutely sure it won't rain.
