Rated 5 out of 5 by JTmcdonald Wonderful tent!
My family just returned from a three night camping trip with this tent. I was concerned at first with this being a NEW tent with no reviews. Set up was a breeze with two people. We set it up at home to add the sealer to the tent in case of rain. The mostly mesh walls also concerned me with bugs possibly getting in and cold weather. Neither were a problem. Since the rain fly goes all the way to the bottom of the tent, it did get rather hot inside once the sun came out. We simply pulled the back of the fly to the middle of the tent as well as the front and that solved the problem. As the sun moved, we were able to easily move pieces of the rain fly to block the sun. Several family members called our tent a Slug as that is what it looks like with its size. It is very roomy inside. With two adults and two young boys, and all their stuff, we had more than enough room. We had a queen size mattress and two cots, two large tubs of gear and still what seemed like lots of left over room, which my boys used as their playroom. The front portion of the tent has two windows you can zip up as well as the tent door. The rain fly at the very back of the tent has a zipper for ventilation as well, but the zipper is on the outside of the tent. Once again, this was not a problem for us but others may not like having to go outside of the tent to unzip the rain fly for ventilation. The back of the tent is the lowest as far as the height goes. That was okay as our beds were there. Overall, this tent was wonderful for my family. With two young boys going in and out of the tent constantly, the zippers to the front door (3 of them) did not snag or get caught on the mesh a single time. We did not experience heavy winds, only a light breeze. We expected rain but did not get it, so I cannot comment on weather conditions other than sun and slightly chilly nights. With the rain fly going all the way to the bottom of the tent (except from the very front) I am sure it would have been fine with sealant and a little tent common sense.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Owlfanatic Great value for the price of the tent. Bought this for a week long camping trip with the family at the last minute. Love how airy it is with the sides and back up and how you can chose how much you want opened up. The only issue was the zipper for the outer closure liked to come apart as you tried to unzip it, but it was easily fixed. The roomy space was great and it felt like a small hotel room since it was just me and my husband for this trip. Looking forward to other trips using this tent.
