Decent quality but awkward setup
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Menkon from De on Sunday, June 15, 2014
When I received the tent I decided to set it up in the backyard lawn before taking it camping. I have the Marmot Limelight 3 tent (which I love) but it is a smaller 3 person tent and we needed extra room. We wanted a more reasonably priced tent to decided to give the ALPS 4 tent a try. The price was great but a footprint is a separate purchase item. The tent is on the heavier side but the build quality seems good. I struggled getting the tent up by myself, although it was just the first attempt. I should be able to improve the next time it goes up. The best word that describes it is "awkward". It helps to have a 2nd person assist in assembly and teardown. My last tent was an easy 1-man operation. We've decided to keep it since it's a pretty good value and quality but don't expect to erect it in under 15 minutes without some solid practice.
