    • Enjoyed this tent.

      I went camping with my two sons for 3 days in this tent. I have to say that it is a good-looking tent which does well against heavy rain. It is simple to set up (about 5 mins) and take down. There are 4 pockets along the inside walls and another compartment in the top, which is nice. I don't mind that the shell zips one way and the inside compartment zips opposite. It did well to keep the bugs out as well. There are also overhand areas to store gear, shoes between the tent and shell. Now, for the issues. It comes with 2 doors for the shell and the tent which comes out to 4 zippers total. One of the zippers needs extra attention when zipping or it will not work properly. I put that zipper towards the rear and tried not to use it much. I recommend buying a tarp and cutting it to the size of the tent in order to provide an extra water barrier and to prevent water from pooling between the tent bottom and the Tarp. Also, the aluminum stakes are junk. Buy aftermarket ones that will not bend. Overall, I would buy this tent again. The problems can be mitigated and it has nice features: space for 3, place to store bags, pockets for headlamps, etc, and it kept us dry through a 4 hr thunderstorm I'm FL.

      Purchased for my daughter who is an avid hiker. She indicated that there was loads of space inside the tent and absolutely loved the "loft area" for storage. A clear winner in her eyes. It is light as a feather and attaches perfectly to her backpack.

    • Super Value

      I'd expect to pay twice as much for a 3 pole aluminum tech tent with double doors and a full cover rain fly, very pleased. Worry the zippers might be undersized when the wind starts pulling on them but out of the box feel really good about this kit.

    • Bummer

      I bought this tent for a trip to Africa where I would be living in this tent for a month. I was happy with the size and the storage pockets and the shelf. What I hated was the angle between the tent and the rain-fly vestibules was so small that you couldn't get underneath the rain-fly and then get into your tent you had to let the rain in as you got into the tent and then zipped them both closed. Also, for some reason the zippers didn't line up - the rain-fly zipped from left to right and the tent zipped the opposite way, which was really strange and hard to get out of in the middle of the night. The worst part about this tent is that after the first three days of rain it started leaking through the door seams and the ceiling. Granted, I understand that most tents aren't made for more than a quick weekend here or there, so if you are looking just for that this tent is great but if you want something that lasts go with something quality.

    • Quality Entry Level Tent

      This is a very good entry level tent for the money. The stitching, zippers, poles, and other materials all seem to be high quality and the design is well thought out. The rain fly is taped and sealed which was nice to see in a tent in the Recluse's price range. Overall, the tent is comfortable and suitable for two people with gear. You'll only be able to fit three people into this tent if your gear is stored outside. We've used this tent in fairly heavy rainstorms and have not experience any water problems. It is breathable, but not drafty and is light weight enough to use backpacking. There were no setup instructions included in the packaging, however, we were able to complete the setup in about 10 minutes without trouble.

    • Great tent!!!

      I was kinda hesitant on buying this tent since other backpacking tents can be anywhere from $100-300 more than this tent. Anyways for the price I decided to give it a shot and Im very impressed! The tent uses quality lightweight aluminum poles and the tent pegs are also lightweight aluminum and very strong compared to most ive seen. The tent has plenty of ventilation mesh to reduce condensation and has four inside mesh pockets for storing items. It even comes with a hanging mesh storage in the ceiling.....most of the time you pay extra to have that! The rain fly is very durable and the tent looks great....better than I thought it was going to be (it is more of a pine/lime green with gray). There are two doors on either side each with large vestubles to store gear, packs, boots etc. The inside is very large with a high ceiling for comfort and is a true 3 person tent which I was surprised to find since most mean one less than they are for comfort. I haven't had chance to test this tent out yet in the rain, but I believe it will hold up very well....the 3 poles make this tent more durable than most for strong winds. I did seal the seams with waterproofing which I do on all tents so I'm 100% sure it will be great! The tent weighs 6.5lbs total.....that is about a 1lb more than the same tents that cost $100-300 more....I can deal with that 1lb more for the price when backpacking!!!! Plus split the weight between 3 and it weighs nothing!

    • Great tent for the price!

      Speedy delivery of this product. Great tent for the price. There are only 3 poles to set up and It does look a little awkward but it does the job. It is a light tent. Some of the posts are already bent but that cant be helped in the ground up in these mountains sometimes. Overall, I like this product and do recommend it to people.

      Excellent tent for two people; three would be a pinch. My son and I have used this tent on several Scout campouts and had plenty of room. the two doors and two vestibules add space for stowing equipment to give more room in the tent.
