I picked this up recently on sale for the times that my son and I need to camp together for his boy scout trips. Normally, they camp in patrols but we have two camp outs coming up where we'll be canoeing down the Alapaha River and I don't want to miss out. So, you have to carry your own gear and camp with who you canoe with. Our Troop still uses the large canvas tents and this should be easier to pack up (and keep dry when the inevitable happens ) than those.
PROS: The tent has a decent rainfly, pretty good ventilation, was easy to set up and has a tremendous amount of room compared to my other "2" man tent that barely holds me alone. I picked it up for around $40 shipped- and added some real tent stakes to the order, too.
CONS: I wish it had a second full mesh door instead of just a half door. The description on the ad didn't say and I hoped that it would have that option. I also assumed (rightly this time) that it would come with the cheap and flimsy stakes that the majority of tents come with now.
UNDECIDED: I haven't had the opportunity to use it in the pouring rain, so not sure how well the fly will actually keep out heavy rain. I'm not expecting 100% there, but it appears to cover enough of the ventilation that a normal afternoon shower won't be bad at all.
So, the quality compared to price point seems well. We'll see how well it holds up after these two trips and the abuse it will probably take. I'll report back the next two months and fill everyone in.
I've no house in the city, just a camping tent in the wild.
