I purchased this product for my son and his family as they do a lot of trailer camping. I wanted something that they could use in areas where bugs were a problem during outdoor meals. My son takes this shelter with him when they camp and they put it up over their own outdoor table, or over some of the tables in campgrounds - depending on their size. The kids love to play in it as it seems like a tent but they are visible to their parents! My son commented that the assembly was EXCEPTIONALLY easy, and it almost popped right up.

This tent is easy to put up, breathable, kept us dry in the rain and big enough for 2 adults (or 3 small ones). My only caveat is that I am short - 5'4'' and found the folding up process difficult. I think it will become easier with practice though, and my 6'3'' buddy had no trouble at all folding up the tent.

A very good tent for the price. I like that it is small when packed. Only problem was zipping the tent up when outside. Zipper keep getting caught in rain flap. Just had to learn how to reach in the tent and pull the zipper away from the flap.

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.

The tent is spacious for a family of four plus dog, but it does not hold up in high winds well due to the design of the tent fly (does not go all the way to the ground). We spent a sleepless night in the desert when the winds picked up, because the tent was being blown around so much that the tent wall kept pressing against our heads, and it was so noisy.

I got this to replace a cutesy play tent that was defective. It's ten times the tent and half the price. My nine year old helped put it up and figured it out with me. It was simple to assemble and the rain shield went on so easily she did it herself. Big windows and all screened. Large door opening for easy in and out. We set it up in our upstairs bedroom area for the winter but it will go outside in the summer. I can't predict how it will be, set up, outside but it's very big and four medium sized girls slept in it plus one 5'10" high school girl. It's a really nice tent and I would recommend it to anyone who is mechanically challenged, like me.

it's a good tent. IT's really big, fairly easy to set up and take down. Cool features, love the "screened in porch." it rained on us, and we stayed dry, so that's a bonus.

We purchased the Promontory XD after quite a bit of research. I look for quality, a good warranty (this tent has a lifetime warranty) and if possible, great customer service. PahaQue measures up in all cases. When researching, I checked out several sites, read e-pinions, talked to people (boy scout trainers at a camping training I attended note: this is definitely a family camping tent, not a tent for backpacking with the scouts) and then called manufacturers to ask them to compare their product to this one. When I called Paha Que I was very pleased with their customer service down-to-earth, completely comfortable with my comparative questions about quality and very helpful with what product would best suit our family. They were able to give me specifics about the qualities and features of their tents so that I could make comparisons with other well-known companies and know that I was purchasing the better quality tent. My non-camping-oriented sister and I put the tent up together in less than 15 minutes (probably closer to 10 minutes) including the rain fly and staking it out. I suspect it would take even less time now. Paha Que recommends two people to put it up, and I would agree. Everything about the tent is well thought out and makes sense, but the size of the tent, and therefore the poles, is unwieldy with one only person putting it up. I watched the video of putting the tent up on PahaQues home website. It really is that easy. As far as the parts to the tent there are very few. They have kept this very simple! There are two long poles that go across the top and four side poles that hook the top poles into the grommet on the base of the tent. Other than two more poles to hold up the optional rain fly-canopy, that is it! The poles are lightweight aluminum and corded. There is no figuring out what goes where or with what part of the reason it takes so little time to erect. Bonus, the tent actually fits back into the bag with out folding gymnastics to try to make it fit. It did rain while we were camping, albeit a gentle rain. No moisture inside. We liked the HUGE window-doors for ventilation. There are three doors so that if you install the room separator the occupants have their own doors. We kept it as one room, however, and were able to fit two queen-size air mattresses inside and a dog bed (we thought it would keep her in one spot and her toe nails out of the floor). We could probably fit another single air mattress inside. As far as gear, we travel with one duffel for each of the 5 family members and then a couple of others for extra stuff. I used the back of the mini-van as a duffel closet but there is some room for duffels in the tent I just did not want the clutter in the tent. Without the air mattresses there is loads of room for gear. All in all, we are very satisfied.

We bought this for our son in law and did a lot of research in the process. This tent is exactly right for a family of 5. It is big enough but not huge so set up is quite doable for two in just a few minutes. The front and back entrances are good and bad with 3 little boys. But, for the most part, it's a plus. All the going in and out is stressful on one doorway. With this tent, 2 entrances share the wear and tear. Very few tents in this size have the 2 room feature. It's nice when Mom and Dad are changing clothes and sleeping with the kids to have that privacy. Very durable, quality made tent.

We camped at a little over 5000 ft. This tent only shields you from the wind, and some light rain. We had a blast, but it was just my son and I in the tent. I don't see how 6 adults could move around comfortably, if only sleeping than this tent works great. It was very, very easy to set up, took us about 5 minutes at night. On our second night the wind picked up at about 55 mph. We where not able to sleep well because of the howling wind The metal stakes the tent comes with were not up to that wind speed and the side of the tent facing the wind collapsed on us in the middle of the night, but we were still shielded from the wind, so that's a plus. I highly recommend you buy better stakes.

Was listed as navy and white and arrived in gray and white - which actually works better. Easy to store, transport and put up. Larger than it looks -plenty of room.

When looking for a tent for backpacking, I want something that is light. That is not the only thing that is important. If it is light but doesnt last than it is not worth a sense. Also if the weight of a tent was all I cared about I would just take a tarp. Some key features for me are: durability, size, and weight, weatherproof and ease of setting up. In this review I will be going over these key features. Durability: How well does the tent hold up after repeatedly be used? Does the zipper continue to work or does it get snagged easily? This can be one of the hardest things to be able to test when reviewing a tent. If you had years to test before you wrote the review then this would be easily done. But with a couple months you do your best. Luckily I have a secret weapon for checking durability. It is actually three weapons, called my kids. I have a 1, 3 and 5 year old who love tents. Their favorite thing is to go in and out of a tent and then playing inside. It about puts me over the edge as they open and close the door as well as squeeze in through a half open door. But this is one way to test the durability of a tent. The Swiftlite held up to everything my kids could throw at it. Size: Is the tent roomy when set up? Does it pack down small? I dont know about you but there have been many times that I climbed into a two person tent with another adult and thought this is a big one person tent not a two person. Well the Swiftlite is truly a two person tent. One night my kids wanted to go camping, but I had a commitment the next day so that wasnt going to work so we slept in the backyard in the Swiftlite. So I slept in the middle and had a kid on both sides of me. There was plenty of room for us all. I was surprised at how roomy the tent is. This is nice as there is not a vestibule so all your gear has to go inside with you. Packing small is also a great feature of this tent. It easily packs down to about 16 long and 5 inches thick. I am sure if you need it a little smaller you could compress it even more than 5. I feel that this would be a great tent to use while bike touring. Weight: This might not be all that important if you are just car camping, but other than that weight matters. The Swiftlite is light. At about 2 lbs. 14 oz. you will love the weight to size ratio of this tent. I have sleeping bags lighter than this tent but I have bags that weigh a lot more too. Also you will be hard pressed to find a tent this light at this price. Weatherproof: Does it keep the rain out and hold up during windy weather? This can be one of the hardest features to test as I cannot make the wind blow or rain to start falling. This can also be one of the most miserable nights sleep when testing a tent and finding out in the middle of a storm that the tent doesnt keep the water out. As luck goes sometimes, the one night I was sleeping in the tent it did rain and the water did stay out. It also was blowing that night and the tent held up. I wasnt able to ever test this tent in a crazy storm but it did hold up in anything that I was in. Ease of Setting it up: How quick can you set the tent up? Are the instructions complete or do you need them at all? Can one person set it up or does it take a small army? It helps when setting up a tent to read the instructions beforehand but to be honest most of the time I just try to set it up without them the first time. Sometimes I succeed and other time half way through I start scrambling for the instructions. In either case I always set up a tent at home before taking it out. One reason for this is to familiarize myself with the tent so if I have to set it up in the dark or in bad weather it is a lot easier. But another reason is to make sure you have all parts needed. It would really make a bad trip if you got to your destination and the tent poles are missing. How easy was the Swiftlite to set up? Easy. It has three poles, one at the back and two up front. The tent does have to be staked down and is not free-standing but it stakes quickly and is very easy to do with one person. When setting it up the first time I did feel a little uneasy about putting the front poles in as it was a tight fit. But after that it was easy and worry-free. I didnt want to rip anything the first time up. The guy lines are easy to adjust and keep the tent tight all night long. I have been impressed by this tent. It was been a quick set up and has worked well the few times I have used it. With two vents that run the length of the sides of the tent and a mesh screen at both the front and back, the tent breathes well in hot conditions. Also with the single wall construction you dont have to worry about the rain fly while setting it up. One of the downsides of this tent is that it is not free-standing. If this is not a big issue for you then it will work well. But if you camp a lot on real sandy ground or the snow you might want to find a free-standing tent. Overall I have really enjoyed reviewing this tent. It has kept me dry and comfortable and makes getting into the outdoors easy and quick. If you are looking for a lightweight tent that doesnt break the bank this is a great choice. Below are the specs and info right off of High Peaks website. Following the ultralite trend, the Swiftlite is a roomy, two person shelter that weighs just 2 lbs. 14 oz. This single wall tent can be fully enclosed to keep out the elements and features a durable seam-sealed Ripstop nylon construction. Two 7.9 mm 7000 series aluminum poles support the structure. Ventilization is acheived through two, built-in side vents, a zippered door and open foot area with No-see-um, seam-taped bug netting. http://www.highpeakusa.com/swiftlite/

The 10 X 10 shade canopy I received was compact and easy to set up right out of the box; take down was just as easy. My only issue is in the head room on the way in, it's about 3 inches to low for anyone over five feet ten inches tall. Once under the canopy the head room is fine. The canopy is used to provide shade of the field installer of my outdoor kitchen designs. It has stood up to the desert heat and wind and numorious set-ups and take-downs.

I chose this tent over others because of some of the features, especially the hinged door. Having not camped in a tent for many years and getting a little older, I look for features that make life a little easier. We camped 4 days recently and found it to hold up well to strong wind and rain. We did add water proofing at the seams but I don't think that would have been necessary as the rain fly keeps the rain away very well. It is roomy and tall. I liked being able to stand up completely in all areas. The awning from the rain fly makes a great shaded entrance. . It took us a bit to set up as one of the poles was called black on the instructions and it was really gray. Next time will be easier. We had plenty of room for our queen size air bed, a table and two chairs. It would be a little tight for 8 I think but I like a lot of room to move around during the day. Being able to bring our electric into the tent through a zippered opening was a real plus so that we could keep our phones charged and air bed fully inflated without having to go outside the tent. I absolutely love the hinged door, it makes the tent feel more like a camper and I'm looking forward to taking my grandkids camping in it because of the ease of going in and out. I would strongly recommend this tent to anyone looking for quality and convenience. Can't wait to use it again!

I purchased this canopy in order to stay out of the sun while camping out at music festivals. This canopy works excellent!! It's easy to put up, easy to anchor down, provides awesome shade AND it's easy to put away. The directions are easy to read. The carrying case has two handles so it's easy to move and it even has wheels!! I'm so glad I made this purchase!!

Excellent. Been looking for one of these for two years. The ez-up models don't work well in a salt and sand environment. Prefered the blue and white stripe canopy but the green and white ok.

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.

We used this tent twice since we received it. It is easy to set up and very roomy. We have not used it in any rainy or windy conditions so I don't know about that, however, I don't think you will be disappointed in this tent. Because we have not experienced any bad weather camping is why I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 as I am reserving judgment on how well it holds up to weather related issues. Overall, the tent seems very well made. I like my tents pretty roomy and my husband likes that he can actually stand in the tent without hunching over to get in. It was delivered from overstock quickly and without issue. I always have a good experience with overstock.
Relax on your patio throughout the heat of summer when you buy sun shades for your home. With a large patio canopy, a few outdoor sun shades and patio umbrellas, there's no reason to stay inside during the hottest days. Read on for a few reasons to buy patio sun shades this season.
Tent camping is a popular way to escape the city and enjoy the outdoors firsthand. There is something special about having only one protection between you and the elements: your Coleman tent. Here are a few ideas to make sure you and your Coleman tent get off on the right foot on your next camping trip.
It can be so great to be out in nature camping, roasting marshmallows and gazing up at the stars. But after a day full of the outdoors, it's time to retire to your home away from home, your tent. It won't give you all the conveniences of home, but a tent should keep you dry and protected from critters while you sleep. It should also hold most of your camping gear and give you a place to go if the weather isn't cooperating. So buy a tent hoping you will only sleep in it, but also buy a tent that will be comfortable to be awake in as well.
Choosing a sleeping bag is a highly individual process which should be based on several important factors -- including features, style, material and versatility. Before you begin shopping for a sleeping bag, know exactly what you will need it for. Will you be using it for year-round camping and hiking or only camping and outdoor activities in spring or summer? Will you be sleeping in your vehicle, in a tent or under the stars? What types of materials do you prefer? Once that you have determined the desired traits you would like in a sleeping bag, you can begin shopping in earnest. Here are the steps you'll need to take as you narrow your search.
A good sleeping bag can make all the difference when you're sleeping outdoors. Sleeping bags keep you warm at night and protect you from the elements, whether you're camping with or without a tent. You'll want to treat your sleeping bag as well as it does you. Proper sleeping bag care will help your sleeping bags perform well and last longer. Here are some general care tips to prolong the life of your sleeping bags.
An inflatable mattress is indispensible as extra bedroom furniture when you have houseguests or as a comfortable resting place when you're enjoying the great outdoors (from the safety of a tent). To make your air bed even more appealing, make sure you treat it like a regular bed; an inflatable mattress will benefit from luxurious sheets as much as any other mattress. Choose the right sheets for your bedroom furniture and treat your guests to an inflatable mattress experience they'll never forget.
If you dislike sleeping on the cold, hard ground, a sleeping pad underneath your sleeping bag can really save you a night of discomfort. A sleeping pad is also essential for keeping your sleeping bag protected when you're roughing it. When you're packing up your sleeping bag, tent and other camping gear, don't forget a sleeping pad to keep you comfortable in the great outdoors. There are three basic types of sleeping pads available for use with sleeping bags: air mattresses,, foam pads and self-inflating pads. The type of pad you'll need depends on what kind of camping you'll be doing and how much padding you prefer.
Setting up a tent can seem a complex task for any first-time camper. Tents are an essential and useful piece of camping gear, for sure, but many frustrated campers have cursed their camping tent as they've tried to set it up in the dark without proper preparation. However, once you've set up a tent several times, it becomes a familiar routine that can easily be repeated even in the most difficult hiking and camping conditions, and once you've mastered setting up one kind of tent, it will then be easier to set up other kinds of tents, be they dome tents or family tents. Camping and hiking should be enjoyable, and they certainly can be if you know how to set up your camping and hiking equipment. Here are the steps that will help you set up tents for camping quickly and efficiently.

Summer is all about soaking up the sun, and the perfect patio set-up is not complete without a relaxing outdoor chaise lounge.

True to its namesake, an outdoor bench is probably going to spend a huge amount of time in the harsh outdoors. Even on your patio, an outdoor bench can undergo some undue wear and tear unless it is cared for properly. If you want your outdoor bench to last, you must give it the care and cleaning that it requires. Outdoor benches may come in a variety of different materials to match your outdoor patio furniture, and each one requires its own type of maintenance. Most likely, your bench will be either wicker, wooden or metal. A wicker bench is perhaps the easiest to maintain, and many wicker benches are made to be weather-resistant. Either way, here are a few ways to ensure your patio furniture lasts as long as possible.
You don't have to be uncomfortable to enjoy the outdoors. A lot of camping equipment is designed to be compact and light; that's perfect if you're planning on hiking in to a campsite.

If you're planning on driving to a site and camping near your car, there's no sense in buying fast and light camping gear. The beauty of car camping is that you can bring along luxury camping equipment, items that enable you to enjoy the outdoors in comfort. Keep reading for more information on a few pieces of car camping gear that will make your next foray into the outdoors more comfortable than ever.
