Lightweight, easy to set up, and versatile, the Wenzel Alpine three-person dome tent is a great choice for all types of camping and conditions. The Alpine includes such features as a three-pole pentadome design that creates a vestibule for gear storage and weather protection, a shock-corded fiberglass frame (with pole pockets) that sets up and disassembles quickly, and an integrated mud mat with a drainage strip to keep the tent clean. Campers will also appreciate the Weather Armor polyester fabric and sonic-sealed polyethylene tub-style floor, which are reliably rugged and resist leaks of all kinds. The closeable mesh windows and D-style front door, meanwhile, do a nice job of ventilating the tent and controlling morning moisture. Additional details include double-stitched seams, a gear loft for smaller items, a hanging pocket, and a duffel bag for storage.

Amazon.com Tent Guide
Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all-purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in. If you're a backpacker, alpine climber, or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to buy something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall, and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three-season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are specifically designed for summer backpacking or other activities. Many premium tents will also feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain fly for enhanced waterproofing.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four-season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes and Tunnels
Tents are broadly categorized into two types: freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and tents that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floorplan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being lighter. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

I would recomend buying this product.
Becky Snyder
The size is perfect for two people sleeping on a full size air mattress and there is still some room on the sides for your belongings.
Katie
I set up this tent in my backyard before our first trip and struggled with it for way too long to get the poles into the slots.

GOOD:
> Price is right. It feels like decent quality at this price. Good value.
> Easy to build. Three poles and it's up. Almost can't do it wrong.
> Pretty big inside. The little mesh "loft" thing is a great place to put wallet, flashlight, etc.
> Pretty compact and fairly light when packed in its case.
> Carrying case has good handles and is big enough to hold everything (without a ridiculously tight packing job).
> The zippers work smoothly.

LESS GOOD:
> The rain fly is tiny. Looking at the picture, it's just that blue cap on top, maybe three feet across. That means the majority of the tent is waterproof, and thus not breathable. It needs more vents or bigger windows.
> Lack of breathability means more condensation inside the tent, even in dry weather. You need to open the windows and door vents as you sleep. BUT, open windows are not waterproof any longer, so if it rains, you'll be awakened by raindrops. If you anticipate rain, you have to close all the vents, which means condensation will get you moist inside anyway...
> The general construction is light. Materials are thin. I will have to be careful to move zippers slowly so I don't tear anything.

OVERALL:
Overall, I am satisfied. This will get us through many Cub Scout campouts, all for the price of renting a tent three times.

I think a better tent in this size is the Eureka Timerline series, but it costs almost three times what this one costs. That tent has an entire roof that is breathable, with a huge rain fly. So if I had it to do over, I might just buy up to the Eureka and be done with it - the tent I'll probably end up buying at some point, anyway.

So I took my tent out for a bachelor party weekend for my future brother in law back in March 2010 for a long weekend. Thankfully, I had the foresight to do a trial run to work out how to put the tent together because this was my first 5 sided tent. Setup was a breeze!!! Only problem I had was putting the rain cover on because I put it on facing the wrong way. It did better than expected because I set up my tent on wet ground and never felt wet the whole time. No moisture got in which is awesome when it got down to the 30s and I stayed dry. I have had a Wenzel sleeping bag for at least 15 years which is why I went with them for this tent. I will definitely use them again!

I ordered this tent to go camping with my son in the Cub Scouts and it's ok for a beginner tent. They say its a three man tent but a dad and his 8 year old son fit OK, but a third person would have been out of the question.

I haven't camped for about 10 years, but I thought this tent was easy to set up and held up well during a rain storm. I am very happy with this purchase.

Myself and my younger brother comfortably fit our sleeping bags and a pad with 1 adidas bag each. Left shoes outside under vestibule and as long as no driving rain comes youll be fine. even if your pushing 6' 4" you may be alright. Sleep diagonally and put the bags in the open spaces created by angled sleeping. All in all for under 50 bucks and with the nice packing bag with solid straps and good penta sturdy construction we were very happy with our purchase.

I am 5'10" 190 lbs wide shoulders my brother is 6'0 and about 210 so all the reviews exxageratting they didnt fit must be fatter than oprah in 1990. And tall skinny guys need length not width in their tents why would you buy a 8x8 get like a 10 x 7 or something?

I got this tent to go camping with my sister, but it eneded up sleeping 3 grown ups plus a dog. It was a bit tight. But overall it is a great tent to sleep 2 people. We had some crazy summer storms and it didn't leak a drop! The rain flap is really small and we were concerned about that squeezing in the tent while it was raining but it worked great. We were moving up and down the Adriatic coast, so we were taking it apart and putting it up all the time. It's very easy to do that, packs really small and it's light. Very satisfied with the purchase!

Good solid tent for the price. Plenty of room for my three year-old, 65lb dog, and myself. A fourth would have been crowded. Solid construction, easy set-up.
