Pros

  • Ease of setup
  • Color
  • Clip system

Cons

  • Tight for four adults

Out of the box, I really liked this tent. Super easy to set up, roomy, and a couple of nice extras like a hammock net to hold small items and a port to run a power cord through (I didn’t test this out because I had no power needs in the tent, but I did keep an eye on whether or not bugs would access the tent—didn’t see any inside!).

This is a nice setup for a car camping tent for a family of four or a couple with dogs.

On the downside, it was heavy (definitely not for backpacking), the bungies on the tent poles seemed a bit slack (maybe I’m used to tighter bungies), and the rainfly only covers about half the tent (not a problem on beautiful camping days, but might be a problem in a windy rainstorm).

I liked that the floor seemed to be constructed out of some pretty durable material, and it seemed a bit thicker than the walls. The built-in doormat was an awesome added touch, big enough to put a couple pairs of shoes as well as have room to put your shoes on/off. I also liked that the directions for pitching the tent (as well as for taking down the tent) were sewn into the inside of the tent bag. Very handy!

Finally, I am pretty partial to the fact that this is a green and tan colored tent. So many tents are neon colors. It’s nice to have a tent that will blend into the greenscape. 

Experience

I used this tent a couple of times car camping.
