      Have used this for multiple camping trips and it does not disappoint. It fits three people snugly, or 2 people comfortable. Have also put a full-size airbed inside when glamping.

    • Broken aluminum pole
      Verified Purchase

      Tent looks great, but one alluminum pole snapped mintes after receiving the tent in the mail. Tried to contact the company for which it was made, and unable "speak" to any human. Tried using the warrenty site, but it timed out everytime i tried to submit!! After (4) tries, i am very frustrated! Planning on backpacking a 60 mile trail soon, would be nice if i could get a replacement for the one pole!

    • Great design but poor quality
      Verified Purchase

      The tent started off looking like the real deal with an awesome compression sack for the tent. The 3 pole design is simple to assemble and I like that all 3 poles are the same length so there is no confusing. The rain fly fits snug and the vestibule is well designed giving extra space for gear. But that is where the glamour ended. The aluminum poles are lightweight which is great but they almost seem TOO thin. Only time will tell if they can hold up. I have tents with aluminum poles of equal weight but the construction of the other poles is thicker. The material for this tent just feels too thin. You have the fear that you may poke your finger right through the wall. The biggest complaint is the zippers. They are hard to zip and will not stay closed. I ordered two tents and both had the same problem. The zippers would separate and trying to back them down and reclose did not fix the problem, Small complaint here but the gear loft is so oddly shaped that attaching it took some time to figure out and it never did attach evenly. These tents were field tested by adults but were purchased for a boy scout troop. If adults cannot properly work the zippers, there is no way I can expect an 11 year old scout to operate this tent. Deal breaker for a brand new tent.

      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
      Verified Purchase

      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!!!
      Verified Purchase

      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!
      Verified Purchase

      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.
