    An excellent starter one man tent

    This is the third Ozark Trail one man backpacking tent in the same series that I have reviewed. While not quite as light as the 43 ounce Ultra Light tent, this is best choice as a first tent for a Scout or adult wanting to try out ultralight backpacking. The tent is well made and simple to set up. All in, the package weighs a total of 3.15 pounds. Carrying the minimum amount of equipment needed to be functional, the total weight drops to 2.51 pounds. Not bad for a one man fully enclosed shelter. The tent setup is simple with a two-pole X design set of aluminum poles. The tent clips to the poles and provides a self standing structure. The sil-nylon, fully taped fly connects to the base tent with grommets and adjustable buckles to keep the fly taut. You can get by using only two stakes: one at the vestibule door and one at the back center of the tent. In stormy weather, you might want more, but two should suffice the rest of the time. The fly extends nearly to the ground to keep the water out. The fly also extends out far enough that you can keep most of your gear protected outside of the tent body. Again, compared to the 43 ounce Ultralight tent, this model has a thicker floor that is fully seam sealed and reinforced at the corners (see picture). The zippers are more robust and better suited for that younger camper (read: Scout) that might not be as gentle with a tent. The tent is long enough to hold a full sized backpacker's pad (see picture). But there is little extra room. The pad in the picture is 72 inches long and is touching the other end of the tent. There is not a lot of extra room. Overall, the pole design and the materials used make this tent usable in inclement weather (which describes nearly all of my backcountry adventures). The tent would even work as a four season shelter capable of handling a moderate snow load and strong winds. This tent is a good starting place for anyone getting into lightweights backpacking.

    Good for one or two day Hiking trip

    This tent is very portable easy to set up and just as easy to repack and put back in the package to go when your backpack ... it is just the right size for one person ... it would also be a fun activity for a backyard campout for two children ..Well-made very nice material

    Great backpacking Tent

    This tent is very Light weight at a little less than 4lbs. Fits perfectly in a hiking backpack and is very easy to set up because it has a two-pole design for easy set-up. It features a gear loft and two organizer pockets. It also has a built-in E-port for easy access to an electrical extension cord. It also has a vestibule for a little extra storage for your pack and shoes. It's approximately 7'3" x 3'6" x 2'7" set up. My 6' 220lb son got in it and had room at the head and foot area. Not much but as long as you're not touching its good. I would recommend this tent for all who like hiking/camping but don't want to carry the extra weight of the heavier type of tents. Great light weight tent.

    Great light weight tent

    This is a great little lightweight tent it weighs only 3 pounds so it makes it easy to carry and hike with. The set up took less than 10 minutes and it is very nice and spacious inside. It is about 6 feet long and about 3 feet wide so you have room to move around. This is a favorite for that short hike or camping trip gives you everything you need without all the extra baggage.

    Pop up privacy and protection from the elements

    Received the Ozark Trail Backpacking Tent with Vestibule, advertised to sleep 1 and was immediately impressed by the light weight and compact packaging. I was even more impressed when I removed the contents from the bag and saw the number of items and the clever design which opens up into two very long aluminum struts and a commodious tent with vestibule. I could see that when attached the vestibule would be good for protected, convenient storage of extra gear, coolers, flashlights or other items you don't want to be sleeping with once ensconced inside the tent. It also provides privacy, as the top of the basic tent is kind of see-through with screened areas offering fresh air with no mosquitoes. The vestibule also provides a double wall for better insulation when there's a chill in the air. Both tent and vestibule have large zipper openings that make access double easy. As I was unlikely to set it up outdoors till Spring, I decided to try it out for the practice and once I got the hang of it (the long aluminum poles go corner to corner in a crisscross, not end to end on each side) was amazed at how simple it was to set up a freestanding one man (or two children) tent. The long flexible poles keep it stretched out and the hand hooks raise it right up high and wide. Looks like a good sleeping bag will tuck right in there. No stakes needed indoors, but enough were provided to tie it and the vestibule cover down well in a high wind. I couldn't see the tent being blown away in normal weather with the weight of and adult camper parked inside. I couldn't help thinking, “This would make a good pop-up guest bedroom. The vestibule part would insure privacy, if more were desired by a guest staying over due to hurricane or blizzard, outside; or if one's kid's friend was invited to a sleepover. Parents could deliver all the fun of the great outdoors without the worry. Because it's set up indoors, no vestibule needed to store snack baskets, emergency supplies or other key camping equipment. One photo shows the proper installation of the poles, the wide zipper entrance and the vestibule piece which will spread out over everything with its own zipper entrance. The other shows the compact package in which it comes, with a picture of the tent with vestibule set up outdoors. I can't think of an easier freestanding and better made tent to quickly make a little spot on the ground in the great outdoors a camping adventure.
