I needed something that I could easily pitch by myself when camping alone but also needed roominess for two people. The Glacier 4 is just that tent. Most 4P tents are not tall enough to stand but the Glacier 4 is 6', which gives me just enough head room to stand without bending over. Also, the floor space is greater than my Kelty.
I have two Coleman 30x80" cots that fit nicely in this tent with about 2 feet between them We store our gear under the cots and it works great for us.
There has been some confusion as to whether this is a 4 season tent so I called Alps and they confirmed that it was because all the mesh zippers closed.
Even with the rain fly attached, which I always have done, there is lots of ventilation. You can see in the photo how the rain fly rolls up on the sides allowing nice ventilation. They have clips to hold the fly which is a nice feature. There is also a roof vent that unzips to let warmer air exit the tent. Both doors have mesh and also are covered for privacy. Even without the rain fly this tent has complete privacy with just a few zips.
There are clips along the floor in each corner to connect a floor saver (will be getting soon) which is another nice touch. There are two mesh pockets in two of the corners.
This tent is a joy to pitch for one person. Two larger than most diameter aluminum poles go up quickly and then the tent clips to the poles. This is exactly what I was looking for in a tent. No more handling heavy fiberglass poles like my Eureka has.
Spent two nights in the rain with no issues, of course, no wind or heavy thunderstorms accompanied the rain but I would imagine the tent would do fine. There are 6 guy out points on this tent.
Side vents zip closed and the zippers on the doors are #10, which are large compared to my other tents.
I only have a couple things I am not crazy about and both are not a huge deal. First, I like D shaped doors with one zipper pull. This one has one zipper that closes the bottom of the door. Annoying, but not keeping me from loving the tent.
My biggest concern is the rain fly vestibule opening. The vestibules are fairly large but getting in and out of a wet tent the flap falls on my back and can get me wet. I am going to find a way to be able to hold the flap open somehow.
In conclusion, this is a great tent so far and will certainly post any problems I might have along the way. There is a Glacier 6P Extreme that I was looking at but the cost is about $200 more but also includes the floor saver. It can only be purchased at: http://www.sportsmanswarehouse.com/sportsmans/Browning-Glacier-Extreme-6-Person-Tent/productDetail/Family-Tents/prod999901359539/cat100835
When I set the tent up in my yard before the trip, one of the loops for rolling up and securing the vestibule door just pulled out of its stitching. I think this is unacceptable for a brand new tent in this price range. Finally, while the design of the tent is meant to keep out the elements, it really struggles with ventilation when the fly is on.
I will say however, that the floor did not leak even as a torrent of water ran under us during one particularly heavy rain. Nor did the top of the rain fly leak. And we were able to sleep 2 adults and three small children in it, with gear, and still have floor space to spare.
If you purchase this model, I recommend buying the floor saver from the Browning website for $60. And you should seal the fly seams and coat with a water repellent before your trip.
The best thing about this tent is that it has only 2 poles. They are extremely sturdy. It is a snap to set up. It is a handsome tent too. People will comment on it.
Day 2. First mishap with the tent. Today we had some rain. Not a lot but some. I left the rain fly kind of tucked above the door of the tent and wound up with a couple inches of water in the corners of the tent. I’m calling this one user error. All my bedding got soaked so now I’m doing some clean up. I swabbed out the tent and sealed it up tight. I will find out in the next couple days if this thing leaks and needs the seams sealed. It’s not supposed to, so we will find out.
Night 2. I didn’t sleep in the tent. I sealed it up tight to check for leaks. We had a steady rain most of the afternoon and into the evening. This morning there was no water in the tent so no leaks.
Night 3. We had steady rain most of the day with a couple storms bringing winds gusting around 30 mph. The tent held up perfect with no leaks.
Nights 4 and 5. We had two days of rain including a pretty dramatic lightning storm with lots of wind and rain. A friend of mine and his young daughter spent both nights in the tent in comfort with no issues. The tent passed its test and I am looking forward to a comfortable deer camp this year. I would highly recommend this tent.
