  • Excerpt: Pros -inexpensive Now here's what I have to say about it, i've used it for four years, the design of this tent is pretty neat at first, but its not free standing, it requires equal tension at all points which can be hard to achieve, and if not done correctly can effect tightness of tent walls, allow a sag in the middle of the tent, reducing interior space which is already cramped.

  • Excerpt: I love this tent. I bought it 2 years ago, haven't used it a lot, maybe a dozen times, but it is excellent for the price. Most recently I spent a night on the Washington Coast with a strong consistent rain all night long. The tent held up well. I little wet on some of the edges from the drips coming off of the rain fly and splashing on the tent, also my feet got a little wet cause of a low spot that formed a puddle under my tent (my fault not the tents problem) however...

  • Excerpt: Great tent for the money. Pros: +Light weight +Easy setup for one person Cons: -Included stakes are cheap and heavy I bought this tent on a low-budget. After eyeballing it on different websites, I caught a deal on eBay that included the tent, rain fly, poles, stakes AND footprint for above mentioned price (includes $10 for shipping). The small vestibule has enough room for my pack and boots. If you're tent-shopping on a budget, I highly recommend!

  • Excerpt: This is a great little lightweight tent. I'm relatively short and small (5'4") and found this tent to provide enough room for myself as well as my 4750 cu inch backpack plus sleeping pad and sleeping bag and other little gadgets. If you are a taller individual and looking for a strong tent, this tent would not be a good choice.

  • Excerpt: Worst tent I have owned. The price explains the quality I paid for. Although it is easy to setup it is hard to get in and a pack and boots barley fit in the vestibule.

  • Excerpt: This tent is exactly as it is described. That is to say it is a tight 1-man hoop style tent. At 19.12 square feet it is a little smaller than the average 1 man by a foot or two. Pros: 1. A full size rain fly. 2. Considering the full fly, 3.0 lbs is really light. 3. 6.5 square foot vestibule. Bigger than average. 4. Simple set-up. Less than 4 min on the first try. 5. The price.$70. Great value for money. Cons: 1. Typical POS stakes.

Ranger Cook (guest), Trailspace.com
6 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Great little tent for the money. I use it as a backup when motorcycle touring and the hotels are full or not available. Holds up well in wind and rain when staked properly. It is a quick pitch but not a stand alone...so pitch it where you want it. Enough head room to sit up in...I'm about 5'10". It is a one-person tent with space for your pad, bag, and a few extras. The vestibule is big enough for a small pack or duffle. If you ride like I do..
