User Review: Wenzel StarLite
Ease of Setup: VER
Price Paid: $25
I'll start with the only negative thing about it..it's not waterproof...which can be solved with a coating of waterproofing spray.
Other than that.. it's a great tent.. I've read reviews saying that the Starlight it's not that easy to set up. that's not true! Hiking the Appalachian Trail the first week of April of 2010, it was already getting dark by the time I got to the place I'd be camping for the night, and set up the tent in less than 5 minutes. there was a thunderstorm that night, so i had winds heavily beating the tent all night long. tent stood up like a champ.
It's ultra light and easy to carry inside or outside your sack.
It looks kind of hard to get in and out but it isn't once you've done it a couple of times.
I've actually slept in there with a friend.. and I'm 6' 1" and 280 lbs. so you can fit 2 sleeping bags in there.
You get absolutely no bugs inside the tent.
