- Light weight
- Easy to put up
- Feet get wet
I came across this tent about twelve years ago completely by mishap. I was fortunate enough to be working at a Big 5 Sporting Goods at the time where we had three of the tents get shipped to my store on clearance. Also, lucky enough to have my district manager in the store that day. We did not even have the code for the product in our system and each tent was marked $99.97.
I grabbed all three tents, went to my dm and asked if I could have all three for $99.97, he said yes and I got each tent for only $33. One for me, brother, and a friend.
It has been my standby tent ever since. Extremely lightweight, one of the lightest on the market for many years. I have had no problems with worn fabric, tears, or zippers. It has been flaw free. It is a one pole construction, so some may not like that it must be staked in order to be set up.
The only design flaw I have noticed is that due to the one pole construction the tent seems to sag around the foot. Every time I have camped in the rain my feet have gotten wet.
The only other drawback is that Coleman/Peak 1 never produced a footprint for this tent. I started off carrying a large heavy tarp for under, till I realized I was being an idiot, then I took an old ragged car camping tent and cut my own footprint out of the bottom of it.
I would recommend this tent to anyone.
