Great tentI really like the tent. It keep you dry when it rains hard. Plenty of room. the only thing that I'm disappointed about is no rain fly for the screen room. It rain in the screen room then you track the water into the main part of the tent. I have camped in the Adirondacks Mountains and Prince William Forrest in VA both times pouring down rain kept dry except the screen room.

Best tent I've ever ownedBought this tent when my daughter was only 3 yrs old and now she is 9. I still have the tent and use it every year. If I could give it a 10 star, I would because it held through a rain storm with wind guss of 30-35 mph. Once in awhile I will get water inside the tent through seems but nothing much to worry about. All i had to do was apply some water resistant on it.

Just what I was looking forPlenty of room for myself and gear. It took longer than preferred to set up by myself, but not impossible. LOVE the front “porch”. Other reviews state that it gets wet with wet weather, well duh, that’s because the fly doesn’t extend very far over. My remedy was a pop up over the front. I was still able to access the porch area, stay dry and had extra sunshade.

easy set up, tent stayed dryI liked the tent, the screen room is great but only if it doesnt rain. During the rain, it collects puddles, a good option would be for a rain cover attachment

Great tent for the price!I have owned this tent for about 5 years, it has been on numerous camping and hunting trips and it has been a great tent for me. I am now in the process of looking for a new tent as this one is getting some wear on it and the zipper on the door is getting harder to zip since it is failing due to my dog pushing through it once in the middle of the night. The door now stays partially open when the dog comes camping to not have this happen again.
There are so many options for tents out there that it is hard to chose what to get. First thing to keep in mind is this tent is not designed to keep you warm, but more to keep you dry and keep the bugs off of you. My advice for anyone that buys this tent is to go and buy a cheap blue tarp to put over the top of it if you really want to expand the capabilities of this tent. The storage bag is big enough to hold the tarp and the tent and you would be amazed as to what that extra layer does. I have had this tent with the tarp over it, with almost a foot of snow fall during elk season and with the addition of my Mr. Heater, I stayed comfortably warm at night. This is a $125 tent and although that can be a lot to some people, it is a good price for a tent of this size and with the addition of a $25 tarp you are going to have a decent tent for most. Another trick to limit air flow into the tent is leave the pole out of the rain fly that is provided and secure the ground ties on the backside of the rain fly as close to the base of the tent as possible. This will keep that big gaping hole on the back of the tent that is just mesh, covered for the most part.
I do like the screened porch as it helps keep you from tracking dirt, mud and snow into the main part of the tent and it allows an extra layer to keep the mosquitoes and other flying bugs out in the summer. You can sit under it to keep the sun off or bugs away from you, but it won’t do much as far as keeping you real dry if it is snowing or raining.
This tent sets up very quickly once you do it a couple of times and it can be done with one person. Tear down is simple and like I stated above, everything fits easily back into the bag. This tent is somewhat heavy so I wouldn’t suggest taking it to far away from you vehicle if you don’t have too. This is a 6 man tent, but I like things to be roomy and comfortable. I have two sleeping arrangements that I go with and that is either two cots or one air mattress. My suggestion for a family of four would be to get a bigger tent if possible. When I take my two kids camping and they don’t have a family members camper to sleep in, I take my 10 man tent so we aren’t piled on top of each other.
Besides the addition of the tarp over the tent for cooler weather and climates, I would also suggest getting bigger tent stakes which is with a lot of tents. This will help secure things better and the rain fly on this tent could be like a parachute if the wind came in from the right direction.
Good luck in your search for a tent.
