So...I'm not really sure how I feel about this tent. It is soooooo huge! Looks really nice when set up and can fit at least 8 comfortably. I usually estimate 2 people less than what tents say their capacity is but this is at least 8 I would say and I have some tall friends. I do really like it, however the "electronic port....." maybe not. First of all I do not think tents should really need an "e-port" you are there to camp and enjoy nature without the use of technology. That being said, the e-port is a hole a man can easily fit his fist through. It is also less than a foot off of the ground. With my outdoor experience, considering risk management, and my fear of spiders the abbreviation "e-port" stands for "easy access port." I woke up to a gigantic brown recluse on my door thanking God that he had not found the e-port. My concern with it being so close to the ground is snakes if you go somewhere where they're common. It gets awfully warm in tents during the day and snakes enjoy warm places. If you have camp set up somewhere for a few days and go off hiking or swimming for the day who knows what can get in there. That being said, one of my poles also broke first time using it. Please do not let this totally persuade your decision. The pole could have been a "freak chance." I am planning on sewing the e-port shut soon. Sorry Suiesse.
I have to agree with the descriptions of this product on the website. The tent is big and was easy to set up and appeared to be be prefect for my family. After one use of a 2 night camping trip we found one pole to be be split and splitting fast. If it wasn't for duct tape would have been sleeping out under the sky. I understand these things break, but after one use. I try to avoid online products just for this reason. Now I have to deal with returning and replacing it.
I am sure this would have been a great tent if weren't so cheaply made. We tried to put it up the first time and the poles did not fit properly. Also when threading the tent poles it tore the tent fabric. The instruction were also awful. You would have better luck just looking at the front of the box and trying to figure it out. I would spring the extra money for a better brand.
This tent is great. It is large in side for our futon we take camping with us and there is room for our camping gear to be stored in side and still room to sit comfortable in the floor. My only complaint is that the black poles have 2 different sizes and i wish they would have marked them so we can tell them apart but were just going to put some duck tape on the shorter ones so we can get the tent up quitly with out trying to figure out what goes where. but besides that great buy for what i needed it for! Thank You!!!
