17 January 2013
  • Summary: The Wenzel StarLight tent is best used for backyard camping or perfect weather, where bugs, not rain, are the only concern. I purchased this tent before I was knowledgeable of backpacking, and I quickly learned this is not a tent you want to depend on in inclement weather.
  • Pros: Weight, Cost
  • Cons: Useless in rain, Difficult to get in and out, No vestibule

A raincoat would've worked better

Walmart
22 June 2010
  • Summary: Not even a very bad rainstorm when I was camping and the whole tent was soaked from all the leaks in the roof. The front poles are very hard to get set without almost tearing the fabric.

Cheap and Light

Walmart
15 June 2010
  • Summary: As far as I am concerned this is the best tent for the money for cycling...You can spend more...but for a basic tent this is the cyclist choice...No rain fly...Everyone I have talked with, no matter how much they spent on their tent with a rain fly, gets wet..

Does its job.

Walmart
15 June 2010
  • Summary: I did a small cycling tour and needed something very small to throw together and take down quickly that didnt take up much space and this was spot on. My only real gripe (that I knew going into the purchase) was that it is not water proof.

  • Excerpt: I'll start with the only negative thing about it..it's not waterproof...which can be solved with a coating of waterproofing spray. Other than that.. it's a great tent.. I've read reviews saying that the Starlight it's not that easy to set up. that's not true!

  • Excerpt: All things considered, not bad at all. I live in Mobile, Alabama, and backpack mostly in this area. Most of the time weight gets a higher consideration than temperature rating as it is quite mild most of the year. Perhaps more importantly it is very hot during the summer months.

  • Excerpt: Let me start with the good. This tent is very light and compact when packed up. Unfortunately it's too small for a person who is 6 foot tall. The way the door was designed was kind of silly, it is too short.

Good little tent if you are putting a cheap pack together.

Trailspace.com
11 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Good little tent if you are putting a cheap pack together. I've used it about a dozen times. I'm getting a little large for it. Tough to get in and out of, but super light. I'm upgrading to a larger tent/pack but this thing is super light.

  • Excerpt: Although I own several shelters (Noall Serenity, Sierra Designs Lightning, Walrus Trekker Tarp, Black Diamond Megamid, Golite Cave, Bibler Pinon) I am always looking for another tent!
