    Well constructed. Great tent for what you’re paying. I’m an avid hiker/camper with much experience and bought this in a pinch for something bigger than my two man. Full rain fly with dual vestibules and doors is absolutely the way to go. This way you have a place to stash your bigger gear outside vs inside. Super easy to set up, and has great storage pockets on the inside for all your little bits of gear. The double sized zippers on the doors are also a plus keeping them from binding up. Any review stating this isn’t water resistant is bs. Yes, you will need a footprint to help with keeping water out, but it holds up well and if you have any idea how to stay dry while camping you should be fine. It’s short money well spent on a well constructed affordable tent that should last.

    Easy set up – convenient features A+ We have used these tents on multiple backpacking trips in Yosemite and ATL trails. The dual doors is very convenient and there are pouches on the interior to hold your things. The vestibule is roomy enough for boots and several backpacks that you might want out of the rain or from critters. I must say, this was the absolute easiest tent to set up and take down that I’ve ever had which is nice when your exhausted coming off the trails and have to set up camp in a hurry. The rain fly is well done as it goes all the way to the ground and has plenty of separation from the tent. It is light weight and fits nicely in a backpack (we had 80 liter backpacks).

    Greatest tent! I did tons of research before buying this tent but I wanted to really test it out before writing a review. The first time I took this tent out I went to a festival where we had a really bad rain storm hit and it rained for about 10 hours and zero water made it into the tent! There is so much storage/organizing space in this baby! There are 3 mesh pockets at either end of the tent and it comes with a mesh gear loft. So that’s 7 places to store stuff and keep it organized! Which is a god send when you’re at a festival for days! It’s really easy to set up by yourself and even easier with a buddy. The 3 person tent fits a queen air mattress but will leave you with no extra floor space. I went with a full sized air mattress and my boyfriend and I fit comfortably and had some floor space left. We took it on a 2 month cross country road trip this summer and set it up and broke it down many times and it’s still in really good shape! I will say please please please buy the floor saver!! I…
