Tall campers steer clear

Reviewed by Jason from Prescott AZ on Sunday, August 3, 2014
As far as the tent itself goes, it's good and a good price. Camped last night in a downpour and stayed completely dry and comfortable. Tent sets up in a flash. And if you need a footprint, the red quarter dome 2 fits perfectly.

The problem is, this tent is much smaller than advertised. I'm 6'4" tall (76") and thought 88" would be plenty. But the floor of the tent actually only measures out to about 82", and the walls slope up quickly that there's no way to lay in it without being on both ends of the tent. The mesh/floor meet at 75", so you're guaranteed to touch if you sleep straight. Yes, I actually got out the tape measure to check. Even corner to corner it's a tight fit and something is going to be touching a side of the tent.
