Very pleased with this product. Plenty of room for two men with gear and sleeping bags. Especially liked the center height. We put a tarp underneath just to add protection, but the construction of the bottom is very durable anyway. We didn't have rain or wind so I can't say about those, but I am...

This is an average quality tent for the price. I would consider it a good value for those who infrequently camp. It is slightly better than a standard Coleman. The downfalls of this tent are the zippers are low quality and the tent fabric is also low quality. Yes, the poles as mentioned in a prior review are fiberglass and will break if not careful but at this price point these are standard issues with all tents.

So I bought this tent for my daughter it was here first, and it was love at first site. Price is good it is the typical two pole free standig design and very roomy, she kept saying how kuch she love it. That was last summer, thsi summer she was campped out on the beach in Hoker Alaska, they had a we bit of and wham, poles broke. This was only her second time using it! Yes it was guyed down, ti somply would not hold up. In truth the problem is any time you have a freestanding tent you arelalread placing stress on the poles by bending them, couple that with fiber glass and you have recipe for disaster. This tent is consctructed nicley but the poles are not good, DO NOT BUY TENTS WITH FIBERGLASS POLES! I have two other tents bith have aluminum and work great.

I am thrilled to purchase a "go to" car camping tent for under $100. Set up is quick and uncomplicated. Rain fly a bit weird but does the job. Have yet to use it in other than ideal conditions, but so far so good...

My husband and I are not very experienced campers at all. We bought this tent and went camping in the U.P. We did not set it up before camping like it says and it took just minutes to set up. I have not tried to set it up alone, but I think it would work. Take down is just as easy except folding, but has nothing to do with the tent. We bought a queen sized air mattress and it fit with room to spare! *note: I do not think it will fit through the door once aired up so be sure you can do it inside the tent.
We are very pleased with the tent and the price was awesome as usual! Again, set up was so easy that I'm sure a couple of kids can do it without problems!
The seams are not sealed. It does have a polyurethane coating and the rain fly will also protect from moisture.

The fly is factory sealed and urethane-coated. The sidewalls that are exposed to the weather are also. The floor tub is woven poly tarp material, which, although heavy, is waterproof and rugged. In several days of wet camping, it leaked a small of water around the rear window zipper, but certainly was not flooded. It was far dryer in these conditions than my other tent, a two-person Eureka Apex. The size and vertical walls make it simple to stay out of contact with the fly, which can lead to getting wet from condensation.
