I have used other, more expensive tents, and this one does the job just fine.

It doesn't leak and it isn't poorly constructed. It is of great weight and it will satisfy anyone looking for a tent, not just someone on a budget.

To all those that have too much money; cheap doesn't always mean it's not worth more than its value.

Price Paid: $29.95

Once weather proofed this tent is on par with a tent of ten times its value.

Like any gear that hasn't been hit with a weatherproofing spray this tent should be weatherproofed with a silicone spray (got one from Walmart along with the tent). Once the silicone coat has dried in a garage or something this tent is fabulous. It doesn't need a foot print, it takes up the same space and the weight difference between it and more expensive "ultra light" tents is nominal. I have absolutely no complaints.

My buddy had a North Face tent that he paid somewhere around $250 for including footprint (2 door, large double vestibule fly etc..). I found that his vestibule kept the ground cool and moist which attracted and kept mosquitos under the vestibule allowing them into the tent whenever he entered (also kept his shoes dry).

He was impressed that my tent stood up to constant rain for 3 days without a single leak. I also experienced almost no condensation except for a little dampness on the bottom of my sleeping bag in the morning (always dry within 2 hours).

I do concede that his tent looked cooler but they both worked the same and the saved $230 allowed me to go out and spend more money on much needed rock climbing anchors.

All in all, give this tent a try, spray it down with silicone spray, it is amazing and survived a weekend in Canadian wilderness.

I have a similar Ozark Trail tent, bought years ago. Sleeps three in a pinch, two with lots of room. Octogon shaped, 3 poles, PE floor, full top to ground rain fly (even covers the door). A little heavy for backpacking, but great for car camping. Waterproof it every year before use. It stood up to a heavy snow for several days when it was already nearly 10 years old. Since it was old, and we had several newer tents, and since this was the only one with a heavy polyethelyne floor, we used it to store the firewood and keep it dry during the storm. It took 4 days of heavy wet snow before one of the poles finally gave way from being covered and cleared off over and over. Even though it was canted sideways due to the broken pole, our wood stayed dry. Replaced the pole and we still use it. Still waterproof it first each year (along with all of the others both cheap and high dollar). Elitists will tell you these are terrible tents and to just spend the $$$ for a "good" one, but with propper maintenance, annual waterproofing and caring for it like you would the $300 dollar one, these will function just fine and will last for years.

I just bought this tent from Walmart. I'm using it so I don't wear out my North Face tent. From setting it up in the backyard I can already tell it has poor construction. But what do you expect from spending $30 on a tent?

I'll put a tarp underneath and on top that should protect from rain. I don't trust the tarp that came with. I bough it for the extra room so it will work. My North Face is only a 2 man and it's a tight fit, gear stays outside.

First time spending $30 on a tent. I hope I get a summer's use out of it. If I don't I only spent $30, and switch back to my North Face.
