The Hooligan is similar to a two pole Coleman Sundome tent constructed primarily of netting covered by a complete, waterproof fly with a good sized vestibule. There are none of the "windows" common to the Sundome family of tents; airflow through the tent is via the door/dome/side Ventilation openings. The design makes it impossible to close off the side vents, rendering this tent impractical for very cold weather use. With 13 stakes necessary for the fly, and 4 for the tent itself, setting it up in rocky or very sandy soils could be a bit of a challenge. Otherwise, actual set-up is straightforward (a usage tip-do NOT stake the tent out prior to setting up the main poles; before you do, check the tension across the front of the tent, as I found that a lot of strain can be placed on the tent zipper if you don't proceed in this manner, and the zipper itself is a little on the wimpy side). With the vestibule, most folks will need to do a double-dip or drop to hands and knees to enter the Hooligan through the vestibule and door combination. With a 58" height, standing up inside is out of the question for most of us, but that's to be expected in a small tent.Read more ›
The first thing I did upon bring it home was un-pack it and set it up, followed closely by applying a silicon water repellant spray to the entire rain fly. This is imperative, especially with a tent at this relatively low price point, since factory waterproofing often leaves much to be desired.
Setup was quite simple and pretty quick. I set it up alone during the at-home shake down, but had my fiancée to help at the campsite over the weekend. It does go a little faster with two, but it's very doable solo. The poles are typical fiberglass with shockcord and insert into sleeves on the tent; I would have preferred clip-on hooks rather than sleeves so the tent can be erected after you bend the poles individually, but for the price of this tent it's acceptable.
The tent itself is composed mostly of screen material with a door on one side and a small zip open vent on the other. If you want any kind of privacy at all, the rain fly needs to be on the tent at all times. The floor of the tent is made up of heavy duty plastic tarp material and looks like it will hold up well if taken care of. The floor of the tent is large enough for a Intex® Camp Air Bed with Pump with about a foot of room to spare on two edges if you push it into the corner.Read more ›
1. Lots of space - 6' by 8' design leaves plenty of room for you and storage, and if you are rather tall guy like me then you know what it is like to be cramped in normal tents!
2. View and breathablility - The tent without the rainfly offers some great views and you don't feel like you are in a tent at all as it is almost entirely screened in.
3. Price - This tent is very affordable for 2 person tents and it seems durable and long lasting.
1. NOT FOR BACKPACKING
- Unless your idea of backpacking is parking the car and walking 100 yards into the woods then this is not the tent for you. Even with a large backpack you will be devoting almost half of your space to this tent, not to mention the 6-7 pound weight.
- The single pole design is also great but it requires you to use the stakes. In classic two pole tents, you can set up on almost any surface without having to worry about staking the tent to the ground; however, with this tent you must use the stakes to get the full dimensions of the tent. Although I recommend staking any tent, if you are using a tent just for sleeping under normal conditions, anyone can tell you the advantages to not having to worry about stakes on hard surfaces.
2. The rainfly
- Although the tent has some great pros without attaching the rainfly, putting it on can be a bear. Not to mention the fly is almost the same size and weight as the tent itself and it too requires stakes to be effective.Read more ›
