Product Description

Product Description

A large free standing cabin style tent with 2 rooms. With straight walls, an 80” center height and a removable room divider gives this tent plenty of interior space. The Combo room in front can be used as a floored screen room or as a sleeping room with large windows. 2 twin track doors on the sides of the Combo room provide entry options. The fuller cut rainfly provides superior rain protection while allowing the windows in the sleeping room to be open. The large windows combined with the large roof vents help to minimize condensation.

The tent's clever two-room design with removable divider adds versatility and, when needed, privacy.
The Mt. Springer is a large, freestanding, cabin-style tent with two rooms. Straight walls, an 80-inch center height, and removable room divider give this tent plenty of interior space and a cozy, home-like feel. The multipurpose front room can be used as a floored screen room, or for extra sleeping space. Two twin-track doors on either side of the room provide multiple entry options for added convenience and versatility.

A generously sized rainfly keeps the inside of the tent dry when the weather turns wet, while still allowing the sleeping room windows to be open to keep air fresh. Large windows and roof vents help optimize ventilation and minimize condensation, even when sleeping quarters are at capacity.

Fabrics:
Fabric coating is measured in millimeters, with the measurement referring to the height of a column of water that a fabric will withstand without water seeping through. Gigatents use 600-to-800-millimeter coating on tents and 800-to-1200-millimeter on rainflys, keeping you dry through the night.

Zippers:
Most Gigatent tents use a Twin Track zipper, meaning the door features a horizontal zipper and a slightly curving vertical zipper, allowing for longer life over heavier use. Gigatent's oversized zippers are constructed of nickel-plated sliders for added durability.

Designs:
Family-style tents are designed to provide the most interior room possible, and--using a combination of steel and fiberglass poles--Gigatent combines the straight walls of cabin tents with traditional freestanding nature of dome tents, providing the best of both worlds. Unique "combo rooms" enable greater versatility, effectively adding a screen porch to the tent for extra sleepers or gear storage, and Gigatent's backpacking tents are designed to provide the maximum amount of living space in the minimum amount of weight.

Poles:
19-millimeter steel poles are employed for most large Gigatent family tents. The poles are cable-corded together instead of chain-corded, reducing the possibility of breakage. Large diameter poles and shockcord offer market-leading strength and durability for long life.

I am tempted to give this tent 4 stars, but the manufacturer got lazy on the details, and therefore does not deserve a high rating. Having said that, I like this tent and believe that it's definitely worth the money. The problem is that you've got to EARN your way into enjoying it. First, the instructions are just awful. In fact, I wouldn't even call them instructions; I'd call them hints--very vague hints, with indistinct, vague illustrations. In addition, I'm concerned about the quality of the materials. One clip snapped in two the very first time I tried to attach it to its pole. Luckily it's not a vital piece and the function of the clip can be replaced by a small velcro strap. So I'm going to hang on to this purchase, and hope for the best.

To those who decide to give this tent a try, I think you'll ultimately be pleased. I loved how you can divide the back space into two rooms. My wife and I camped with my brother-in-law and his wife. We used the back area as separate sleeping areas, while using the front section as a changing room and a place just to hang out when the weather turned. Having a shared common space was really convenient and provided benefits I hadn't anticipated, but now wouldn't want to do without.

It is true that one person can raise this tall, 14x10 tent. But it takes practice. To do this, build the roof first by inserting the fiberglass poles, arranging the six hubs, and then attaching only four of the six buckles, which are attached to the hubs, to their mates on the tent. Which four, you ask? The four on the corners. Leave the remaining two buckles in the middle unbuckled until you've got the tent raised.

Very roomy with an attached screen porch. This is very easy for me to set up by myself. Just have to remember to put the rain fly on the roof and fixing it with velcro at the corners before lifting it up.
In cold weather I use a small catalytic propane heater to take off the chill. It stands up to the wind really well. This one hasn't been through rain yet, but I have a Bear Mountain which stays perfectly dry so thinking this will too. I haven't used the separator to make two rooms in the back yet, I like the open space, it's huge.

I was in all pleased with this purchase. I did find the instructions to be useless, and one plastic stake did come cracked so it broke when being installed. We did take the hint from another review, and bought and used the 6 pack mini colored electrical tape to color code once we got it up. Then we numbered on the tape with black permanent marker each step by number. It holds 4 large queen blow up mattresses for sleeping, but no foot room left. That gives you an idea of it's size. Will sleep 10 adults if no mattress, and we will be sleeping 5 adults and 4 children on mattresses. I will try and request a replacement stake for the one that was cracked. HAPPY CAMPING TO BUYERS OF THIS TENT!

The tent wasn't the easiest to set up, but not impossible to do so. Like another review said, with practice it becomes easier. I really loved this tent when I first set it up and then again when we went camping over a long weekend. The space was fantastic and received several positive comments from other campers in the area on its looks. The screen porch was great, too. You can leave the back 4 points of the fly attached and pull the front portion over to give you even more open air in the screen room without taking anything away from the appearance of the tent. The door zippers kept getting stuck, and while very easy to get unstuck, was still a bit of a pain. Still though, I was feeling like I had made a pretty solid choice with this tent. Until, that is... the rain began. Not a fierce, heavy rain by any means. Just a mild, but continuous rain that lasted for several hours during the night. Woke up to find the tent leaking through just about every seam. We had 3 twin inflatable mattresses (with sheets on them) in the back part that had become thoroughly wet on any side that was touching a tent wall. The tent was leaking around the windows, doors, and small storage pockets. In the front portion of the tent where we had stored our gear there was about an 1/8" of water. Our clothes and other gear were soaked. Luckily, this occurred on our last night, so our trip wasn't completely ruined. However, after calling Amazon on my return home they are hooking me up with a refund which I'll use towards a more weatherproof tent. If you can avoid camping in foul weather (impossible for me), then it is a great tent. I'm going back to the Eureka Bitterroot I had before. While not quite as big as this tent, it kept me and my family completely dry through several very damp and rainy camping trips.

Reserve one star for future surprises - just in case.

I bought this tent for less than $200- (but not from Amazon). Before I made my decision, I checked and compared the materials of the poles, flies and floor carefully. I was not that sure of getting a coverage that large under $200-. The comparison convinced me that material wise, this Gigatent matched other putative quality products.

My husband and I went on our first car camping trip with this tent. We did nothing to improve waterproofing. The veteran campers in the Christian group we joined remarked that its construction (the roof does not arch steep enough to drain) might pool much rain. It took my children an hour to go by the instruction to set this tent up at our back yard. The veterans checked what the pieces are and set it up in about half an hour. The tent wall tore a tiny hole the first day we set the tent up but it was fixed with a bit of duct tape inside and out. No other tear had been detected. It rained for hours the first night of our trip. I expected disaster and went to bed immediately to make sure we would be wakeful enough to pack and drive home if the tent was flooded. There were quite a few worrisome wakes in between that first night and the rain seemed to wear on throughout. Nonetheless we stayed dry. There was no condensation at all on the inside. I was so grateful to God and the manufacturer of this tent.

We didn't have another tent to compare this to but this Gigatent seems to be a product of much camper's experience and probably quite some research. The tent received quite a few compliments from fellow campers. Other reviewers have remarked on the nice division. I especially admire the zippered window.
