Very lightweight and easy to setup.
Andriy L.
The tent is for sleeping only and two is a tight fit, but that's okay if you are just sleeping.
Thomas
You will get more than your moneys worth for this little tent.

This tent rolls up and is pretty lightweight and compact but once up has plenty of room inside for one + gear. I'm 6'4" tall and if I were to stretch out my head and feet could touch the two end poles. Hit those poles to hard and I'd image it'd come down on you in the middle of the night. Overall I'm very pleased though. For less than $30 bucks I think it did an excellent job.

I'd agree with a lot of the other reviews though and will have to only rate it for 4 stars. We were camping in some pretty warm weather (80's) so I can't vouch for its waterproofness either. But if it got cold outside say down into the 40's condensation would be a real concern. Even with the door flaps and back window flap open I could feel the temperature raising once I climbed in. This tent simply doesn't breath very well. Waking up in a puddle of water from condensation isn't fun. But just to be clear, that didn't happen and there was no buildup in the tent at all. If the tent were to breath better I'd give it a 5 star rating for sure.

Of course this is a nice tent for the money - that's first. But it will keep the elements out and is very study and simple to use. You don't have to worry about the aluminum poles snapping or the thick tarp material leaking if it is wet outside. There are no frills though, no vestibule for cooking or storing gear. If you want cover for that - rig a tarp or something. The tent is for sleeping only and two is a tight fit, but that's okay if you are just sleeping. The weight of 4 pounds makes it a good backpacking tent as well. The corners of the tent must be staked down and guy lines must be used for the tent to work - so be ready for that. You might want to get nicer stakes if the ground is going to be a problem.

Its a classic that WORKS... IF you know what the heck you are doing with it. Yeah its a little tight for 1 man plus his gear and you for sure won't be fitting two grown men in it without really getting to know each other, if you know what I mean. Its a breeze to set up and it ventilates well with both mesh windows open. Will keep you dry from the morning dew and very light misting rain, but to protect against the heavy rain storms that will absolutely soak one of these (as some less than knowledgeable reviewers have pointed out), pitch a tarp shelter and then pitch the tent under it. Keeps off the moderate to heavy rain and, as an added bonus, the hot mid-day sun if you are camping in the heat of summer. I have stayed in one of these tents for a full week at a time on numerous occasions at different summer camps. You simply can't beat it if you have the know how and common sense to use it to your advantage. A tent is a camping TOOL that requires "know how" to use. You wouldn't walk into a wood shop and starting cutting away on a band saw or a lathe without knowing what you are doing right? Same principal. Learn to use this camping tool correctly and you will never have a second thought to buy a different single man tent. Five starts all around.

I had a similar tent while growing up (scouts and what-not). Now I'm almost 30 and I took it backpacking last weekend. My fellow back-packers were impressed not only at the sub 4lbs weight, but also the price and ease of set-up and tear-down. I definitely recommend spraying it with waterproofing before use. We got poured on and everything stayed dry--the other backpackers weren't as fortunate. Didn't have too bad of condensation in the morning (only left the window flap open). It would be nice if a vestibule was offered as an accessory just so I could leave my boots outside and keep things cleaner. There is plenty of room inside for one adult with gear. If two adults would be pushing it. Two scouts (12yrs-16yrs) should be fine. Would have given 5 stars but the stakes are a little sub-par. They aren't much thicker than coat-hanger wire and they bend just about as easily. In short: buy new stakes, waterproof the fabric, and you'll have an awesome, light-weight tent that is easy to set-up and take-down.

The tent is alright for a quick little trip. It goes up fairly quickly and easily and has plenty of space for one person. If you're as tall as I am though, or anything over six foot, you may have to sleep diagonally in it to fully stretch out.

Unfortunately it does have a lot of downsides, but what would you expect from a tent at this price? First, and most baffling of all, is the little window on the back. It does indeed have a zip-down flap to cover it but this flap is located on the EXTERIOR. If, say, you want to close it in the middle of the night, you will have to go outside to do so.

The tent stakes it comes with are about as flimsy as cardboard, but it's easy to get better stakes. The out flaps that cover the doors only have nylon ties with which to tie them together. If you don't tie them in a perfect bow, they might slip and become your average knot and unless you are a rather small person, you won't be able to get out until you untie the knot which may be an hour or so.

Finally, the material of the tent itself is very thin. On the first day of using it my dog tripped over one of the lines tying in to the sides and this put a big rip in the side.

So if you are a small, sure footed, flexible person who doesn't mind doing elaborate things just to operate the tent, this for you. So really this is perfect for an olympic gymnast.
