Shape, how hard to set up, price for product, product safety, water leaks, breakage of zipper for door, and windows, screen in area.

Tent has a neat looking setup and natural neutral colors, but the design is waist in more ways than it different. As to would I recommend this product, is maybe, depending on whom I was talking to and what product was and is to be used for, just camping with smaller children, yes for larger ones, no. What is product best for would be different style.


  • Can stand up in tent,
  • Shape of tent
  • Does have a screen in area


  • Small screen and tent are not big enough.
  • Med hardness to set up
  • Only sleep to eight people but must be small

This product can be a good investment for backyard camping. It was not as large as we would like it to be, as the setup has a different style.

It a nice yard tent, a taller person can stand up in the tent, which is a plus, as most people have to stoop over getting in and walking around a tent. This tent is more shaped like and tepee bottom, only not the upper part of the tepee, with a small screen in area might hold two lawn chairs if you want to; will hold your ice-chest, and other personal items.

Never had it set up in the wind, stability is ok, never had it set in wind, rain, snow, never used it any weather conditions. Brought it set it up and took it back down in hour. Room and storage is small, re-packability did not work we could not get it back into the original package. Usability was OK. Construction and durability seemed ok as we only set it up for an hour tops.
