Quest Eagle Peak 4 Person Tent
This tent sets up quick and easy. Zippers are excellent, no problems with rain guards catching in zippers. Only 2 poles. My wife and bought one of these for quick overnight trips and also used it on the Oregon coast. It has been a excellent tent. Good coverage on the rain fly. We would recommend this tent to anyone. Excellent price excellent tent.

my camping trip
I order it online should have went to the store to buy it. I would have saved around $30.00. Any way when i went camping i went for three days. It rained all three days about 5 inches in two days. The tent stayed dry. So over all i think the tent is worth it.

Easy to install!!
This product is very easy to install. Why the 4 star instead of 5? Because it wont fit back perfectly in the storage bag.

For the Guy who only camps once a year.
Now I'm a guy who likes my comfort. Camping is not something I do often. I don't any gear, and I had no intention to. Either way, I couldn't afford any of it. But when I signed up for a Mission Trip to build Churches in the Jungles of Nicaragua things changed. I know had a list of required items to bring, and I was on a very tight budget. I figured I didn't need the best quality. Just quality good enough to last me for the 2 weeks of my trip. The Quest Eagles Peak 4 caught my eye for it's low price. It said it fits 4, so i figured I would have some extra leg room. Well when time came to use it I found out it fits 3 comfortably, not sure what 4 would be like. Anyways the tent was lightweight, easy to set up, and never tore throughout the two weeks. It did get very hot inside during the day, but I mainly used it for sleeping. But like I said, I'm not a big camping fanatic so it did it's job. When time came to return home, I decided to donate the tent to the locals.
One year later, my church announces a camping trip and I'm currently tentless. So I decided to buy yet a second Quest Eagles peak tent, same size and color. It did me good in Nicaragua, so I imagine it will do just fine on campgrounds.

Good beginner tent
I bought this tent for myself to go camping with my son and his boy scout troop last weekend. It was pretty easy to set up on my own but even easier with two people especially for hooking the rods onto the pegs. After setting up, the tent fly was just as easy to install. The door zipper got caught a few times but was easy to dislodge. Only downside with this tent is the mesh top. The night was cold - it went down to 27 deg and it was a bit windy. The wind was coming in occasionally from under the fly. Thankfully i had a mummy sleeping bag that kept me pretty warm. Overall this tent works well.

Fantastic tent for the price
I bought this tent in November 2011 for a combined Webelos and Boy Scout camping event. I was looking for something suited to cold(er) weather but tightly constrained on my budget. My observations:
1) The tent is too big and open for real comfort in November weather. In cold weather you want windows that close - not just a rain fly - and you want low air volume so that there's less air to keep warm.
2) The zipper can catch if you don't pay attention to what you are doing, but this is true of every tent I've ever used including Keltys from my youth which cost over $150 in 1985.
3) This tent is *very* easy to set up and break down. My son and I have done it in the dark, TWICE, each time in under 10 minutes. By myself it takes me about 15 minutes.
4) With a little attention to detail this tent rolls up and fits into its original bag very well. I have more room in the bag now than the factory package job gave.
5) Finally, the stakes it cones with are junk and should be replaced while you are buying the tent. This is typical, but important.
I would absolutely recommend this tent to anyone on a tight budget or anyone looking to start camping and see if they like camp life. We continue to use this tent and I expect we will for years to come.

Quest Eagle Peak 4 Person Tent
Tent is Excellent for the Price. at first i thought it would be to small for my needs but i was wrong when i went home and set up the tent. to my surprise the amount of space available to me and my family who will be sharing the tent. not to mention a dog also.
the zippers become stuck at times but with patience they will work like normal after a few soft tugs. - pull to hard the zipper might break -

Bought this tent to camp with the Grandkids. Replaced an old large Coleman Tent that had seen it's better days. Our camping is not in the campground; we wilderness camp. Our first trip with this tent was to the Okefenokee Swamp where the tent did well protecting us from the mosquitos and a brief rain. Other reviews I've read mention the poor door zipper design. Well, I agree. It's not a deal breaker. You simply need to be careful not to grab the cloth with the zipper on the way around.
I also sprayed it with water repellent/sealer before we used it...just in case.
