Spacious: What can I say! just WOW! alot of room for kids, the dogs, the wife, me, and our gear. I am not a small guy by any means 6'4 and about 350 pounds, I fit in this tent and have room to stand and move around.
Ventilated: this tent has great air flow due to the multitude of windows in the tent.
Extremely durable bottom: the bottom of this tent is extremely thick and able to withstand the rugged conditions we were camping in. the side of that mountain had alot of jagged rocks there, you can only clear it so much, no punctures, no tears.
Very waterproof: had a nice downpour during the trip, no leaks and it withstood a decent wind as well.
Easy setup: once you know how, and I recommend setting up at home in your yard to get feel for tent. we did and it saved us a ton of time.
The cons are few and far between but there are a couple.
short canopy: the canopy on this tent is short, as you can see in the original picture the windows are slanted past the canopy, this makes it so you cannot open windows while raining. Makes it a bit warm in there.
doors do not have screens: I know, minor complaint, esp. since there are so many windows.
initial directions are horrid (FYI sewn into the bag): the instructions leave alot to be desired. at the end of this I will post some helpful tips on initial setup.
no inner pockets: ok this is another small issue, easily alleviated. We stripped the removable pockets from our old tent. we giving this one a way, the new people cant complain, free is free.
The con list does seem long but extremely piddly.
To give you a break down we will divide the tent in fore and aft areas, the fore section in the sun area, and has 6 windows. The aft area, where we shoved the kids, has 2 windows.
The first thing you need to be aware of is the manufacture forgot to tell you on the top page that 2 poles are shorter. This was either an oversight, did it for a laugh, or the manufacture hates you. These shorter poles go in the last section(aft) my recommendation is to find these and mark them, we used red nail polish.
These are placed on the sides of the aft section.
in the middle section are nylon braided loops with metal rings. dont run the poles through them, no matter how much you want to. I makes it impossible to get the canopy on later.
Follow this order for a little less stress when putting the four pole systems in this order from fore to aft.... D A B C
Staking out the tent is a must. I would suggest doubling the fore and aft stake sets. the canopy can have the guy ropes place, I recommend this. page 2 of instructions tell how.
This took as a while to get good at, however once you get it down it is an easy venture to say the least.
fore and aft sections folded inwards to make a rectangle.(about 2 feet of aft and 5 of fore area), now fold in half and then into thirds. Place tent bag and folded canopy in middle and roll.
When placing in bag we found once you get it zipped half way there are buckles on the sides. this allows you to 'clip and zip' making it easier to pull the zipper shut.
All in all and magnificent tent with only a few minor draw backs. I do not regret buying this tent, and would recommend it to anyone with a large family.
First of all let me say that I am an Eagle Scout and an Army vet. So when I tell you I've been camping a few times and have set up a tent or two, you'll believe me. Most tents I've owned have been small in comparison, but when you get a couple of kids and a wife who likes "glamping" (aka glamorous camping) you need to start looking at the big options. I did several days of research - mostly over the well-known brands like Coleman, but wanted to see what else was out there. Found this company (Tahoe Gear) and loved the cosmetic / ergonomic design - big nice windows, good interior layouts, big stargazing roof - etc. I suppose that is where I went wrong, because actual engineering of the design counts and I let myself overlook that - although I will tell you that the reviews for this product are generally good, I believe they might mislead.
When I first received the tent, I did what any good outdoorsperson/military vet does with their equipment and tested it out before leaving on our camping trip. The first warning sign is that this tent does not stand up with all poles assembled UNLESS it is staked to the ground at either end - this creates a HUGE amount of stress on the material at each seam/end of the tent floor and that is inherently where the main failure occurred. BUT - upon putting it up, you can set up guy lines to take that stress off IN GENERAL IF those lines are at a 45 degree angle away from the tent at each end. The main issue is that the poles are only 4 across parallel to each other and there is no cross or angled support in the perpendicular direction (imagine trying to stretch out a big accordion, but the ends falling back together on itself). I said OK, we'll make sure the guy lines are in and we will be good - deciding guy lines are not optional, which is not something the instructions stress. As a caveat the instructions are also incorrect when it comes to pole placement, but many others have said that already. When the instructions get that wrong though, there is not much hope they will tell you anything else of value either...
So we talked about the engineering of the design, but now let’s talk about the quality and how it is ultimately affected by the former.
Upon setting the tent up a second time, now at the campsite (large open grass area on a lake) I noticed small rips and tears had developed in one of the tent poll sleeves that run across the top. These sleeves bear the weight of the entire tent, and after one set up in my tranquil back yard they had begun to break down. I told myself I would worry about it later and see if I could repair that with some patching/etc. Tent went up fine (again) and we were good until about 3AM that morning. A 10mph wind kicked up and gusted into the side/front panel of the tent. The next thing I know my wife and baby have the tent coming down on them along that side. The entire front quarter panel seam along the bottom/floor had ripped/blown out about 3 ft long. I had to take the now useless stake and drive it through the material and floor to keep it closed/off my wife (luckily the tent is big enough that she just ended up moving) and to keep my dog from slipping through to go night exploring on her own.
I've never seen anything like that happen before in all my experience with tents/equipment from a relatively low level wind gust - this was NOT inclement weather at all. Actually - I would say that if there was inclement weather the tent might have completely destroyed itself and we would have been in REAL trouble. Hopefully, the retailer/manufacturer and I can work this out. I would still be willing to try another TG product, but I don’t think this one given the design issues that I have seen. I feel that the materials are industry standard, but the design puts stress on them in strange ways. For $250 I am extremely disappointed by the experience.
TLDR: Buyer beware! Bad design and relatively poor quality.
Any type of weather
Update: October 2016. We tried using the fly today, my wife and I and the entire tent collapsed. It's great without it but takes a little patience to put up. I suggest at least 3 people with its height and size. After the frustrations using it today I am changing my review to only 2 stars.
