Rated 4 out of 5áby Rebecca24 Great Tent... Except Been using this tent for years for week long camping trips with my family and it has held up great. Well built and allows for great ventilation... However it does REQUIRE that you buy a boat cover support pole. The center of the vestibule seriously sags during rain and if you dont support the center you will end up with a foot deep pool of water on the roof. A simple mushroom top boat cover support prevents this. Would highly recommend, if you also purchase a support pole. June 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby MrBilbo Good Family Camper Pretty good job for a family camper. I'd recommend it for close to the parking spot camping. As for figuring out how to set it up. Take the time to set it up and take it down once or twice. The directions are not that good, but once you figure it out, it's pretty simple. Yellow goes with yellow, black with black, red to red for the vestibule. Here's a hint for the geometrically challenged, the "X" piece that holds the the black, yellow and metal poles can only be used in one direction. If rain pooled, it was your fault. Design held water out well. Wind will be a problem during set up if there is some. Ensure you secure the corners first. I've tried to help based on previous comments...all in all, pretty good tent.

Rated 5 out of 5áby The fisherman Works well We have used it for two campouts. On one, it was hot and the vented tent permitted excellent ventilation while keeping out insects. On the other it poured with rain and with winds gusting up to 40 mph. We stayed perfectly dry and snugly warm in our sleeping bags. This tent was excellent with the extra fly area providing room to stage before entering and exiting. It sets up and down easily with colored poles and matching colors on tent. After first campout I bought another one for my son and his family. October 17, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5áby Bill the Sand Sculpter Great Car-Camping Tent In the past, my wife has not been a fan of camping in general and sleeping in tents in particular. This tent has improved her outlook significantly. The tent is roomy and well-ventilated. It is also relatively straight-forward to set up. So far We've only used the tent under ideal conditions so I can't speak directly to its performance in wind and/or rain, but I have owned many a tent in the past, including winter camping tents, and I expect this tent to perform adequately when the time comes. My only concern is with the seam stitching, which seems adequate but not bomb-proof. It will be interesting to see how this tent wears over time. August 15, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5áby Use it or Lose it Two person setup We found it took two people to set up the tent. The interior screened portion is great for sleeping under the stars while keeping out mosquitos. There was condensation on the interior in the morning though. Using the rain fly kept the interior warm and there was not issue with condensation. It allowed plenty of room for a queen size mattress and our bags. August 5, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5áby Michael S Good idea with poor design I purchased this tent for a cub scout 3 day camp. I thought the vestibule would be a nice addition to help the boys keep th edirt outside of the tent. I have been in scouting for a long time and cannot count the number of camping trips I have been on with different kinds of tents so the price of this tent should have been my first clue but I wasn't paying attention. In order to set this tent up I first tried to read the instructions. The poles are color coded but the instructions do not clearly identify which color goes where. You have to read the parts list and then compare that with different steps in the instructions to get an idea for which pole goes where. Next, the ends of the poles for the main dome at tipped with metal ends. This may be fine for guiding the fiberglass rods into the socket, but they carve out the inside of the soft plastic hub that they are supposed to insert in to. The poles have to be bent at such an extreme angle that they dig into the hub as they are inserted. This will eventually cut through the hub so plan on replacing this plastic piece after 5 or 10 uses. With regards to the fly/vestibule, There is a single pole that has to be slowly guided through the short sleeve at the top/front of the fly. Be very careful not to snag the material as the sleeve is barely large enough to accomodate the pole. A better design would have been to have three distinct pieces that could be connected together. On the first tent I purchased, after the third use of the tent, the fiberglass pole for the fly literally shattered/split from one connecter to the next. This happened while the tent was up. I can only assume from the combination of heat (90 degree days) and stress from the angle of the pole in the bottom connector. Dick's was good enough to replace the tent but I would strongly recommend paying the extra money for the coverage. The taped seams do well excecpt for any place the ties are connected. I would also recommend seam sealing all of the tape to prevent a shower. The tent is rather heavy due to the large upright poles and amount of fabric but it serves well as a base-camp tent. It is large a roomy but little strength in the poles so don't plan to hang anything from them like a night light or fan. Better to put those on the ground in this tent. One night we had a really strong rain storm but as long as the sides are staked out the tent doesn't seem to move at all. We replaced the cheap standard tent stakes with more rugged and longer ones to ensure the lines stayed where we needed them. Overall, I think the tent is acceptable for the price yo upay but don't plan on this being a long term investment or a heavily used tent by any means. October 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby khemhem most bang for your buck Didn't get instructions, but just using the pole guide was easy enough. Roomy, no leaks, setup and breakdown was fast and didn't need 2 people. Just don't face the back in direct sun, it gets hot and need that open. April 20, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5áby Spanarkle Wet and soggy Tent was good size and easy to setup. However the design was poor for rain, the sides leaked and dripped onto the inner mesh soaking everything under the vents. The floor saturated instantly. I have been camping for over 30 years and do not reccomend this tent. I'm on my way back to Dicks to exchange or get my money back!!! July 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5áby jpeezy love the tent my son and I took a family camping trip to Stone Mountain last weekend and it was the first time using our new tent. it has a lot of nice features and they did a great job with the layout. It was really easy to assemble and it was just my son,who is six, and I and we got it up no problem. the vestibule was really nice as well. I recommend this tent to anyone that needs of a good tent for family camping. October 29, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5áby YugiUpsuh Has dome design issues, but it's cheap Summary: Good: -Cheap. -Cheap. -Cheap. Bad: -Tent leaks: due to top of the rain fly sagging and the seams not being sealed. -Difficult initial setup and requires 2 people to setup. -Heavy. OK for car camping. My qualifications: Avid outdoors man. Family of 5 kids. Camping for years. I have used this tent for about 3 years. And still use it. But plan on having to figure out how to setup first few times. Many of the reviews here cover these points. But here's my experience. The instructions are minimal. You will need to figure out which way the tent hubs go (turn 90 degrees or not) every time. I finally resolved it by marking the 2 plastic hubs after a successful setup. This is not a show stopper, but when you need to pitch the tent in a hurry, it's very frustrating! Initially while you are trying to figure out which pole goes where (they are color coded, but it's not clear where the colors go - they match the tiny colored strip on the hole which is difficult to see and last set of poles do not have color and neither does the hole that it belongs to - see what I mean?), you will need another person to help you. If you are doing with children, you will need couple of them since this tent is big. The stakes that come with the tent is the cheap kind. I replaced with nice aluminum ones. You will too. The vestibule is very nice and big. Loved it. The seams will have to be sealed to make them water proof. You will have to do this in case of rain and if you camp at a location that is very heavy in vegetation. The top of tent, which is mesh started contacting the rain fly after couple of years of use. So when it rains, the tent leaks. When there is a lot of perspiration (many people sleeping in the tent) without enough ventilation (like in early spring or fall), there's a lot of condensation build up. They will drip on to your sleeping bags ... inside the tent. I have tried various methods to separate the top of the rain fly which now sags, but it is very difficult. My family had a great use of the tent first 2 years as a three season tent, but now ONLY use it for fair weather tent (when it doesn't rain or there isn't a lot of vegetation). Got 3 years of use out of it. So it's relatively cheap. If I can figure out a practical way to keep the rain fly off of the mesh tent top, I can use this for few more years. So this tent can be a good (and cheap) buy, but be ware of the shortcomings. Have fun outdoors! October 3, 2014
