Positive Customer Reviews

Putting it up is an absolute snap. During our trip it rained virtually non-stop for 36 hours - and I mean rained hard! With high winds as well. The tent was the only refuge from the storm and stayed dry the whole time
-- D.B.

This tent is a breeze to set up and only took a few minutes. The aluminum poles are nice & sturdy. The tent itself is roomy for my wife, me, our 3 young children
-- S.

The tent preformed wonderfully. The first night we were there it rained all night. Not a single drip. It also had more than enough room. We all slept comfortable.

Negative Customer Comments

First night of high winds, the tent did fine.  Second night of high winds, the poles bent. 
-- L.E.

The tent warms up well in the sun, but it gets very cold at night.
