User Review: Northwest Territory Chippewa 8-Person Tent
Design: Four season freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: excellent
Price Paid: $69
I love this tent! I've camped a lot and had everything from pup tents to RV's. As tents go, I find this one to be a great design for ease of setup (as an experienced camper), usable floorspace and gear storage. The closet can double as a midnight bathroom with the right portable toilet.
I give it a conservative 3.5 stars only because I have not had it yet in the rain. I was concerned about the space around the closet as a possibility of leakage, but found that adjustments on the bungees and ropes brought adequate coverage to the area. A little waterproofing in a can should take care of any minor problems.
It has great ventilation with the front of the rain fly propped up and even on a very foggy morning there was no accumulation of moisture on the tent at all.
