Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hope it Helps from FLORIDA on Friday, September 4, 2015
I researched tents under $100 for awhile and found this one on Sierra Trading Post with an extra % off so I went to YouTube and checked reviews. No one had the Sage and Coal color scheme but the tent was well liked (except that the roof may hold water or snow if you use the small cross-beam pole). I got the tent hoping the Sage would not be a bright green...and it is Not! This tent blends right in from Florida to Colorado. Even the poles are dark with minimal reflective quality. Yet, 4 of the guy line points on the vestibule have some reflective material. I was surprised to find it has small clear plastic (vinyl) crescent windows on the vestibule doors up near the top. They are partially hidden by the zipper guard flaps. All of the materials are fairly strong, even the screen body of the tent. Both the tent and vestibule sets of double zippers each work well but I would not call them smooth. The shape of this tent is narrower and lower tappering toward the back. The back vent has a little built in prop-open pole. The front vent must be guy-lined out or rolled up to be fully open but still allows some venting if left just flapping in the breeze. I noticed that these models have a taped seam mid floor but so did my $400 tent so I am OK with it for now.
