Ample 6-Person Instant Tent

Large enough to sleep six people on traditional sleeping pads or accommodate two large inflatable beds, the Ample 6-Person Instant Tent from Lightspeed Outdoors sets up quickly thanks to the integrated pole system, which eliminates the difficulty associated with traditional separate pole tents.

The four windows with zippered blinds can be adjusted to balance privacy and ventilation. A separate rain fly (with taped seams) is attached in the conventional over-the-pole manner and can be easily removed. It also features a large front door, and extended awning for added protection. Plenty of interior pockets help keep you organized. Construction materials include 68D 190T breathable polyester for the tent walls and rain fly and 120G PE for the bath tub-style floor.

Revolutionary compression hub system sets up in seconds

Unfold all poles and lay tent out flat.

Pull drawstrings up and out away from each other at the top of the hub.

Tie the strings together to lock the hub in place.


The Lightspeed Outdoors side-pull compression hub system enables you to set up and take down the Ample in minutes. The main area sets up with pre-attached poles and the compression hub. Telescoping poles elevate the main tent upward and lock into place, and additional poles are attached to frame out the remainder of the tent. All that's left to do is attach the rain fly and stake out the guy lines.

When you're ready to head home, first remove the stakes, rain fly, and side poles, then press down on the lower gray poles of the hub to quickly collapse the tent. Fold in the side flaps and poles toward the central hub, then roll it up for storing in the included compression bag.

The tent was very easy to set up however I cannot compliment it on its quality.
Semih Gorgulu
The first time I used this tent, I was setting up in the dark, and I really liked how quickly it went up - and it was very easy to figure out.

I am planning to return this tent and hope for better luck with a different one.

My girlfriend and I are planning on camping, and I'm pretty new to the game. I wanted an easy tent to setup, and this is absolutely it. We looked at the instructions a few times, but it really is unpack it, pull it up, tie it off, and put the stakes in the ground. The rainfly was a bit more confusing, but not a big issue. Probably about 10 minutes total.

When I initially read the other comments on this product, I was really surprised that almost nobody talked about how it handled storms/rain/wind. So just to get some feedback on that feature here - we set up the tent and ventured out to buy batteries for our air mattress pump - by the time we got back it was looking pretty nasty outside so we decided we'd leave the tent up while we slept in the basement! We zipped up the windows and let it ride. There was a decent amount of rain and about 5-10 minutes of pea-sized hail. The next morning I went to check it out and there was no damage to the tent from the hail and only about 5 drops of water on both far sides inside the tent. Pretty impressive to me.

We let it dry out and then packed it up. It didn't fit perfectly back in the bag at first, but I gave it another try later and stuffed it in there. Not perfect but it works.

All in all, great tent and I'm quite happy with how it performed. I think we'll get better at assembly and tear-down, so really a great experience.

It actually does what it says! I took it outside (It was an EXTREMELY windy day with 40+ mph winds) opened the "umbrella" and locked the legs into place. Myself and the kids were amazed how quickly it was up! I am happy that I can set it up myself. Previous experience with tents left an opinion that they are a pain in the butt but this tent is unusual. The tent actually fit back into the carry bag which is an understated benefit at the end of a camping trip.

When we got married 17 years ago, we received a tent. That tent has lasted and been perfect for many camp trips. But now that we have 3 kids, we need a bigger tent. That's why I was thrilled when I got an email asking me if I would be interested in reviewing the Lightspeed Ample 6 Tent.

The Ample series is the most spacious of the Lightspeed lineup. With the Lightspeed integrated pole system, the poles are built in to the tent, eliminating the difficulty associated with traditional separate pole tents. The revolutionary drawstring hub system allows the user to set up the tent quickly and easily. The Ample features a large front door for easy access into the tent, and an extended awning for added protection.

As soon as the tent arrived in the mail, my 4 year old and I cleared out the living room floor and put it up. I was very skeptical that the drawstring system would be as easy and effective as promised. But I was surprised. I took 3 minutes and actually looked at the quick start directions before beginning. That was the key for me.

Steps to setup:
Unroll the tent.

Secure the bottom 4 joints into place.

Stand in front of the tent area and pull the 2 drawstrings. I was afraid this would require 2 people pulling really hard. But I was actually able to pull the drawstring and the tent popped into place as intended.

Slide the 2 side poles into place to extend the sides of the tent.

Attach the rain flap cover if desired.

Stretch out the tent sides and stake.

Steps to take down
Unstake, remove the 2 side poles, stand in front of tent and push down on the 2 support bars that have yellow sticker. Tent will collapse in front of you. Roll up and put back in bag.

I love this tent. I am a novice in tenting and this product made me feel much less inept. The quick and easy set-up was totally a confidence booster. And the best part was that I was able to take it down, roll it up and fit it back into the bag it came in...all by myself!

My friends and I did actually fit 6 people into this tent cozily, yet comfortably. And we were adequately protected from the elements...of Southern California. But don't get me wrong, it can get windy out in that desert!

I highly recommend this product, especially at this price. It basically eliminates set-up and take-down time so you can spend most of your time actually having fun and enjoying the outdoors. Thanks Lightspeed!

This past summer I saw my neighbor set up a tent in minutes, yes, minutes! I've been a camper my whole life and dreaded the tent set up, so much work, so many pieces and then the rain would come and I would be soaked. Or, it started to get dark and the bugs were eating you alive. We have all been there! I was planning a weekend camping trip with my wife and 2 kids and was in the market for a new tent. I lost too many of the pieces from the old tent and it just wouldn't cut it anymore. Then one day I was in my yard at home and saw my neighbor, by himself, pull this tent out of a bag and set it up in about 5 minutes. I was amazed!!! I rushed over and asked him where he bought this amazing new tent. He said he saw it online and decided to take a chance on something new. He loves it! Needless to say I rushed in the house and ordered one online myself.

The next week we went camping and I set it up just as quickly, I wasn't aggravated from the setup and I had a much better camping experience. My wife and kids appreciated that too!

Thank you LightSpeed for making a product that takes the chore out of camping and puts the fun back in!!!

Happy Camping!
