    • 4.5 Stars Excellent Tent

      This is an excellent 3 season tent for the cost, comparable to the more expensive backpacking brands like eureka and kelty. Full rain fly with taped seams, good factory waterproofing and tub bottom makes it really rainproof. My first outing with it was to the Red River Gorge. Rained all day with heavy winds and one tree down near camp but not a drop got in. Each large vestibule is big enough for a half packed frame pack with room to spare. It has a gear loft which you can hang a small lantern off of. It is heavier than the brand names, but that is what you get for the price. It is ok if you are actually sharing the load with two people, but don't go section or full trail hiking with it by yourself. Note to car campers this is a backpacking tent so the inner tent is just big enough for two average sized people to sleep side by side, with maybe a small bit of gear at the head or foot as long as you are not too tall. Mesh inner walls portions will keep bugs out, and creates decent ventilation with both rain flys open. Velcro on the fly is nice to hold it shut without zipping every time. The fly is a bit of a reach to close at night, but worth it for the extra dry space. Setup is not too difficult with one person and easy with two. It comes with plastic clips and fiberglass poles. One person with practice can put it up in less than 5-10 minutes. Comes with a standard, non compression stuff sack. Pros: Fully water proof with large rain fly and tub bottom. Large external storage vestibule. Gear loft, rain fly vents and nice extras Cons moderately heavy no compression sack standard fiberglass poles and aluminum stakes. TLDR: Great tent for bad weather in 3 seasons. Comparable to name brands. Moderately heavy but less expensive Would great but for all but the most hardcore camper or backpacker (who wouldn't bring a tent anyway)

    • The Actual Specs

      I just got this tent in the mail, and I haven't used it yet, but this post is to clear up any confusion about the specs. The tent actually weighs 6.2 lbs and it actually only has 800mm waterproofing (not 1500mm as stated). Comes in a bag roughly 7" dia x 13" long.

    • Great Scout tent for backpacking

      This compact tent has a fly and entrance on each side, allowing easy access for two people when camping. Although the tent did not come with instructions, we were able to figure out how to set it up after a couple tries. If you're looking for a reasonably priced, 2 (small) man tent for backpacking/camping, this is a great choice.

    • AS good as more expensive brands

      We just returned our overnight camping trip and I am very pleased with this tent. One member of our party had a two person tent they just purchased at over twice the price and the two looked and setup almost identically. As a precaution I thought it may need to be waterproofed before we left but when we tried it was already proofed extremely well. A good thing too since we got rained on pretty good. In addition to plenty of room the dual entry made it so easy for the two of us to use the tent and it was wonderful that we each had our over own entrance and our own vestibule to store our shoes and gear. The mesh net for the inside worked great for our headlamps and a few other items. This was just an overnight gear test and we have yet to take it backpacking but the weight seem to be very good for the price.

    • Nice Tent

      Lightweight and roomy. Easy to set up, once you figure out that you want one hook per connector piece on the poles. We got rained on the first night we used it, but we stayed dry inside.

    • we just received the tarantula tent today. two of the corners have standard three-prong clips but the other two corners do not and we have no idea how to secure those two corners. I would think all four corners should have standard three-prong clips.

      • Hello spider, please contact Customer Service directly to provide an invoice number so the can assist your further. You can reach them at 1-800-The-BIG-O Thank you for shopping with us.

    • What is a tarantula tent? We've never been camping before and I'm not sure of the difference between this and a regular tent :-. Please help! Google searches only turn up tarantula tents for sale or plain ol' tarantulas!

      • Hello peachymama, it is called tarantula tent because how it's put together, the arms cross at the top which sort of resembles tarantula legs and body. This is a normal tent. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • Why did you choose this product?

      • Looks to be what I want in a tent and at a good price.

      • Reviews were excellent as was the price. Looking for a lightweight two person tent for back packing.

      • Small light weight

      • Cheapest price I could find online

      • My daughter found it had features she wanted at a good price. Dual doors, for one thing. Customer review that found it kept them dry in rain.

      • good price, specs, reviews.

      • It's the right size for 1 person. And I may use it instead of a motel.

      • good price

      • I wanted something small and compact, and well ventilated. The fly-outs at each opening give privacy if I want to leave the screen open. Having two doors is a huge bonus because sometimes at a camping spot there's really only one possible/comfortable way to situate your tent, which sometimes results in the opening being in an inconvenient spot. The price helped a lot, too, I just wish it was still available in the green color.

      • looks like a dependable product

      • I'm looking for a light-weight two person tent. The reviews and price sold me.

      • Saw several fantastic reviews for it on amazon.com. Decided to check around to price compare (which is rare for me because I typically expect Amazon to have the best price) and you all blew them out of the water! Pleasantly surprised - then with the additional discount and free shipping it was a no brainier.
