I chose the tent based on strict criteria. The tent must be less than 10 pounds to fit on the luggage rack on a motorcycle. The tent must be free standing and easy to erect under minimal light conditions. Another friend purchased the same tent. Both of us conducted pre-test to know how to erect the tents once in the field. My tent did not set up correctly in pre-test. One of the legs wanted to twist out preventing the complete erection (In the field the same situation occurred). The other tent had no erection difficulties in pre-test.
We conducted our field tested at the Thunder in the Mountains motorcycle rally. The area we were in was rock under the about an inch of soil. We were unable to use the stakes that came with the tents since they were not heavy duty enough for the conditions. Likewise, gusting winds up to 30 mph posed a problem with the tent setup. Under heavy winds the tents became airborne since the staking step follows erecting. We were able to use field procedures and secure the tents by tying to large rocks as a solution to staking. There are no instructions with the tent on the use of the rain fly. An experienced camper will be able intuitively attach the rain fly, however, my friend had to ask during pre-test what the purpose of the extra pole not being experienced in the realm of camping. With simple handling the stitching came out of the bottom of the stake bag. It may not seem like any big deal but an unsecured stake loose in the carrying bag could lead to a paint rub when attached to the motorcycle.
Part of my tent did collapse under the high winds.Read more ›
You've read all about the integrated poles and quick setup, which are all true, so I'll skip those and get to the stuff people don't mention. Like the gear vestibules next to the door that can be accessed from inside or outside, perfect for dirty shoes or as a 'laundry basket.' Genius. Or the unbelievably high number of storage pockets inside (the usual small keys/wallet pocket on one side, the loooong pocked for jackets, hats, gloves, etc. on the other side AND the small 'basket' up top that is perfect for placing a flashlight or glowstick for light. Most other companies even charge for that top basket as an accessory, ridiculous!
I will agree that the bathtub floor can get messy in less than dry weather. I usually lay down a super cheap tarp or something just to separate the ground in that case, you can get packs of them for a couple bucks.
As for the storage bag, I completely agree its too small, like every other tent bag in existence (how come no one's figured this out yet?) But the answer I came up with that works great is a compression sack! I had to look hard but finally found one that has horizontal cinch straps (as opposed to the usual vertical) so I can stuff everything in there and cinch it down afterward.
My only real gripe about the tent that can't be fixed is the size. I'm 6'1" and with the tall sleeping bag and air pad I use my feet and head hit the walls. When I'm alone I sleep at an angle but with my wife it gets too snug for my liking.Read more ›
The only problem was on another trip. It was with about 40 others. They all had their tents plus as a group we had several 10x10 canopies for our make shift food prep area. Since it took me under 3 mins to set up my tent, I ended up setting up the prep area, gathered fire wood, start cooking and still the others were fumbling with poles, loops and ancient tent set ups! Overall, it is sturdy, rugged, dependable, PERFECT for car camping, getting to the campsite late at night or in the rain! Get the bigger 4 person tent. The 2 person is kinda small even for a single adult.
Some minor negatives: The instructions could be better. There are no instructions for attaching the rain fly, and if you have never set up a tent before this could cause trouble. I wish the door had a zipper across the bottom.
I could not get the tent back in the bag, but for me that is nothing new.
