I have been using this tent for solo backpacking for a few years now and after finally deciding to upgrade I figured I would right a short review. Really the only reason I'm purchasing a new Tarptent is because of weight and compactness.

The Dakota 1 weighs in just over 3 pounds with the fly which by today's standards is heavy for a solo shelter (my new Tarptent is only 1.5 pounds). If you're not counting ounces and do not consider yourself a lightweight enthusiast then this shouldn't be a problem. Also, the Dakota comes with a stuff sack (not a compression) sack, and even when compressed is still rather bulky for a solo tent.

Perfomance wise, I really dont' see many faults with it. I've had no problems with condensation or weather and it is pretty durable. It really is a nice, affordable solo shelter for those just starting out or on a budget. Very easy setup as well.

Verified Purchase
this past weekend was the first time i used it. where we went was in the high mountains in northern california,so we had a little bit of all weather,but mostly windy and cold, below freezing. now im 6'2" and about 250lbs and i fit well inside.head room was a little tight but manageable,didnt feel cramped and maneuvering around felt good. down side is i wish the foot area was a little bit taller and weider.but this might be due to the slepping bag (cold weather).now that all said the tent handled well for cold weather and i think it was made with warmer climate in mind, but did well.this is a good over all one person backpack tent for any season.

This is a decent tent for the cost. I've used it twice backpacking and it's worked well. On one trip I got rained on and found that there's a little mesh window in the rain fly underneath the guy wire flap, for ventilation. It would have been dry except for the wind that pushed a tiny amount of moisture through it. The only other problem is that it's hard to position the rain fly exactly on the tent and it uses cheap plastic buckles to secure it. If you use it for backpacking, buy a separate compression sack for the tent and rain fly then store the rods separately in your pack.

Pros: Lightweight, Nothing has broken so far.

Cons: Rain fly is hard to seat causing problems trying to enter the vestibule, tent stakes are cheap, tent has tendency to partially collapse during night.

I bought this for my son, a scout, for Christmas. It has not been tested but I have set it up in the yard.

This tent appears to be identical to the Coleman Exponent Kraz. It is also similar to the the Coleman Inyo/Bedrock/Cobra, the primary difference being the asymmetry of the Dakota/Kraz. I believe the asymmetry of the Dakota/Kraz adds to both the personal egress and water shedding capabilities of the tent if not the aesthetics. I, however, find the asymmetry pleasing.

Photos and further description can be found at ([...]

Before buying I did a little research but was unable to find much information. There were few photos and no video. That probably has to do with the fact that Coleman has unfortunately pulled their higher end Exponent line from the US. Checkout Coleman Europe ([...] for what could be.

At this point I have not camped in it.

1) The polls break down to a 13" length. (Very convenient.)
2) My scale read 3 pounds 3 ounces with all materials the tent came with.
3) Attached to the inside of the tent-bag was included a packet of emergency repair materials, an aluminum sleeve with which one might splint a broken poll and three swatches of tent material with a peel-off back in the event the tent fabric is torn.
4) The vestibule is large enough for boots but little more.
5) Polls are color coded to the sleeves which aids in assembly when light is available.
6) The sleeping area is around 8 feet long and 3 feet wide.
7) It is not free standing.
8) Colors match nature.
9) It is a much higher quality tent than the price or manufacturer's name would lead one the believe.
