I love this thing. It is so easy and quick to sent up, well under five minutes with just a three-year-old "helping". There's enough room inside for a queen-sized inflatable mattress and all our gear, plus headroom to stand up in the center. I've only had a few problems with it, nothing catastrophic. One of the tether seams started to come out after high winds during the first use (other people's tents were blowing away) but took about five stitches to fix. I felt a few drips of rain under the window during a torrential downpour during the second use. Just be careful to keep your tensions evenly distributed at each corner, seal the seams around the window and door, and keep children from falling/jumping on the sides and you should be good. Mine's been through four five-day festivals and is still good. And they don't mention this, but you can set up under a tree limb or something and tie up the peak, no pole needed.

I purchased this tent last spring and have used it several times. It is very spacious and the headroom is fantastic. It also draws attention because of its unusual appearance, which can be fun. It is quite light, which is great if you have to carry any distance. The ventilation is surprisingly good for a "waterproof" tent. It was not unbearably hot in the sun, cooler than a smaller tent would be. One day we had very high winds. Many tents in the camping area were damaged. The Wigwam held up very well. Another day it rained hard and steady for several hours. The sides leaked at the outside edge in several places. The tent is not factory sealed. The door also leaked some; this would be hard to fix. All the water that came in wiped up with a towel and the tent is so roomy that our stuff, piled near the middle, did not get wet. A fun tent, reasonably priced. Great for concerts, SCA events and the like. Not a good choice for a Boy Scout Troop, extended camping or backpacking.

Here are a few tips that will improve this tent's weakness. The overall weakness of this tent is that it has the design of a larger tent but the material used would be for a smaller pop up dome tent. They used light weight material but really can't see back packing with this tent. If that's what your going to do then stick with the factory stuff.
First and main weakness is the center pole. Go your local hardware store and invest in a heavy set of screw connect pipe for the center pole. Don't for get to get Chair leg bottoms, rubber slip over type for the top and bottom length.
Next buy heavier stakes. Also get heavy guide lines(rope) and guide. There are sites on line that show you how to make guides from 1x4's.
The next weakness is the floor. Follow the instructions and put a tarp under your tent. Also find a in/out door rug to fit inside. This will help keep you from tearing the floor and make it more comfortable to walk on.
Finally set-up the tent up before you camp. Have at lest 3 days of good warm sunny weather. Let it air out and "de-factory" the first day. Then get a couple of cans of tent seal, (local big box store or sports store) and spray down inside and out the whole tent. Put extra around all the seams.
Another after thought. If your like me you will find it almost impossible to fold the tent to fit in the original carry bag. I would suggest investing in a army duffle bag to put the tent in and use the original bag for the hardware, hammer, flashlight , ect, anything else you might need to help in setup.

I love this tent! It's very spacious and easy to set up. We call it "The Modern Tipi". My favorite part is the fact that I can stand up in it without hitting my head (I'm 5'6). Me and my boyfriend took it with us when we went camping, and there was plenty of room for us to sleep and put all of our stuff in it. It was perfect for us.

I can't wait to camping in it again. :)

Have had for almost a year, was tired of getting dressed laying down. Wanted head room, and this has head room and plenty of floor space. Usually setup with 1 cot and loads of storage. Occasionally one or both of my sons bunk along with me, and still everyone has elbow room. The white color stands out at Scout camps, and makes it easy to see while inside due to the light color. I still want to put in a light colored floor tarp to not lose items in the dark. Roof vent works well, have not had rain issues with the vent, door or window.

Only trouble area is the zipper can run over the rain flap and get stuck, taking it slow and easy can work it without issues. Just replaced the flimsy pulls on the zippers with bright para cord and can find them and use zippers easily. Also replaced the guy lines, the black lines are invisible and everyone trips on them. (Guide gear should put hi-visibility lines on them). Yellow/green para cord is for me bright enough in daylight,dusk also is visible.

Would buy this tent again.

We bought one of these tents to 'try out' before purchasing 13 of them for our boy scout troop. It didn't rain on the camp out(extremely unusual), so we showered it from above with a garden hose. The only leaks were through the stitching around the door and window (these seams were not sealed by manufacturer). In general, the boys do like the tent but we thought from the description and photo that we were getting a 12' SQUARE tent which would hold 3 cots. The tent is actually a HEXAGON which means you have 6 five and a half foot sides and can only place 2 cots in the middle. We really haven't decided yet whether to try taping the door/window seams and going with these tents or to purchase something else. We are still looking.
