This tent is more like a 3 man (3 white guys from Montana anyway), sets up quick and easy, one thing Mountainsmith could improve is the distance that the rain fly extends from the sides, but other than that a great tent.

This tent was easy to set up and worked well for a 3 day campout. It is not a 4 man tent unless that 4th man is really small.

This awning is easy to transport and easy to set up. It holds up well in windy conditions when properly staked. You have to duck to enter it, which is a bit of a nuisance. It's not very big, enough to shade 2-3 seated people.

Tent was very easy to set up. I found the zippers on the doors to be a little hard to open and close. Seemed like there was too much tension at the midpoint of the zip line. Also, this is rated as a 5 person tent, but they had better be 5 small people. Probably not bad for 3 adults if they have no gear to store in the tent.

I purchased this tent for my son's 9th birthday after reading reviews on several tents and knowing my price limit. Overall it was easy to put up, especially since I have never put up a tent before. The tent was roomy enough for my son and his 8 friends to play in on & off all evening. It appeared to be roomy enough for 3 people, 3 sleeping bags, and 3 luggage bags if using overnight which we did not. My major complaint is that the zipper for the door was extremely difficult to zip and unzip. It required 2 hands to do, one holding the zipper and the other pinching the tent. After several zips/unzips by the kids the stitches at the top of the door pulled a bit. My minor complaints are that it leaked water during a hard rain storm and it was difficult to fit back into its storage bag. Overall, this tent served its purpose: the kids had a great time with it. I would recommend to anyone who is a "casual" camper.

Just finished camping with the scouts this weekend in Alabama - we had over 7" of rain in two days and ours was one of only 3 tents that stayed dry. The tent was easy to assemble (even in the dark & rain) and we couldn't have been happier. It's definitely not meant to be a backpacking tent but we were able to keep all our gear inside and still have plenty of room for two. I'm very pleased!

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.

Spacious family tent, it fits about six people with camping cots, the quality of the tent its a little bit on the cheap side . We were disappointed that it did not keep the rain out, it started to drip water inside after 3 hours of steady rain. Wish they would've mentioned that on the ad, had to go and by a tarp in the middle of the night to keep the rain out.

I am giving this 4 stars based on the speed of shipping during the holiday season which was excellent (once this tent is actually used, I may upgrade to a five star). This tent was given as a Christmas gift...... We have 3-feet of snow on the ground so will need to wait to see how happy the recipient is with the product when spring rolls around.

After doing tons of looking and even browsing at camping events, we found this tent (which was about $100 cheaper than Bass Pro or Coleman website.) The deciding factors for us was 1. it was a coleman. 2 the hinged door 3 the size. We had NEVER been camping in our lives and had to buy everything from scratch for the cub scouts. It was VERY easy to pop this tent up, it took two people about 20 minutes and we had NEVER done anything like this. It is very spacious and the door is a god-send. While watching everyone else, zip, unzip, zip, unzip.. we just popped in and out of our tent. It did rain while we were camping and we stayed nice and dry and we were able to get the tent back into the packaging!!! 3 different times! Which apparently is almost unheard of. Very pleased with this purchase and wouldn't blink at making it again.

Easy, easy to set up, quality construction. It really does take two (3 would be ideal) to do the initial set-up of the framework. After that, it was a breeze! Great that it has lots of tie-downs, as we can get breezy up here in the Sierras. Pricing was very reasonable.

I originally purchased this tent for personal use, as I am somewhat of an outside nut. My wife and kids loved the simplicity of setup and they demanded to try it out, and it has been a great hit in our household. The tent came in excellent condition, and has held up to 3 boys and our youngest girl. That says a lot. The product smelled like it had just been manufactured, and it was all in decent packaging. The overall impression was one of 100% satisfaction. This tent is priced right and is sturdy enough for most sensible usage. I recommend this, and plan to purchase more of these!

It took me about 30 min to put together, and then I needed another person to put the top pole together. If you follow the directions it is easy to assemble. My grandchildren loved it, and we put it in the family room for them - no stakes were used - and it never fell apart (children are 3 and 5 years). I will be bringing this to the beach as it folds up so small and comes with an easy carry bag.

Living in hot, sunny Florida, you definitely need shade when spending a day at the beach, especially if you have young children. This cabana is perfect for that afternoon snooze for your little one and there's plenty of sitting room for 2-3 adults when you want a bread from the sun.

First of all this "3-person tent" is HUGE! That is, compared to all my other tents I have been using. Plenty of interior space inside this tent. Nice square floor. Simple and basic. All the things I love about a tent. The tent is quick and simple to pitch. Utilizes clips that attach to the 9.5 mm aluminum poles. The tent uses rings and pins instead of the more common gromments which is ok with me. No worries about gromments pulling out of the nylon webbing. The tent is sturdy when fully pitched/guyed out.

Just gave tent a outdoor test in backyard, 3 days of rain , no leaks, followed by 5 days of snow , about 6 inches one night , all snow shed off of tent, Repacks easy , You have to unzip one side of rain fly then unzip other side of interior to get in tent -it makes sense as it keeps rain -snow from getting in ,in case you accidentally leave fly open , nice and roomy, taller interior than my old 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!
Very few items of porch and patio furniture offer the peace and relaxation of hammocks and swings, and as far as outdoor furniture is concerned, it's hard to compete with a porch swing's decorative charm. Because porch swings need to support weight without compromising the stability of the porch, it's important to take the time to complete the installation safely. A little planning before and during the installation goes a long way in ensuring your new porch swing remains enjoyable for years to come.

Fountains add the relaxing sound of running water to any setting. Outdoor fountains allow water to spout, jet, pour or trickle into a basin before draining away. Fountains range in size from burbling rock gardens ideal for tabletops to large pieces of public art. If you live in an urban area or a busy apartment complex, you can use a fountain to create a sense of privacy by masking traffic and other noises. When choosing an outdoor fountain, first consider how much space you have. Many yards can accommodate large pedestal-style outdoor fountains while a smaller fountain will create a focal point in a petite flower garden. The longer the waterfall, the more noise it creates; consider volume when choosing your garden fountain.
