Bought this tent for a family of 6 ! We camped three days at palo duro state park. Our first night camping there was a bad thunder and lighting storm. This tent never leaked and the high winds never blew the tent around. We bought some extra bigger tent stakes to go with the ones that came with tent. It rained all three nights and no water in tent it was great. The screen room on the front of the tent allows air in the tent with no water getting in. I would buy Swiss gears tents from now on !! Setup to 2 adults 15 mins
We got this on sale for [$] I don't know that we would have ever paid full price for it. It was perfect for 5 people (2 grown ups, 3 kids) Lots of room for beds and gear. It rained the first night and the floor stayed nice and dry, we did throw an extra tarp over the top though, just in case, so I can't say how well the tent roof repels water.
-easy to set up and take down, AND it fit back in the bag fairly easily
-quality of the materials and fit and finish are really good
-bottom is made of a very heavy duty tarp material
-the zippers did not feel like they would separate, even with the kids zipping and unzipping.
-nice and big inside
-loop on "ceiling" to hang light from
-description say color coded poles, and that is not the case-nothing is color coded, but, it's really not necessary
-description says gear loft, there is nothing like that
-not really a 10 person tent, no one is going to want to sleep in the porch area with no floor
-cheap metal stakes
-no power cord e-port
Slept on this bed last night for the first time on vacation. I have already found the local Target and will be returning it today. My husband and I have a queen bed at home and this is definitely NOT a queen. We inflated it to firm last night and I'm already sagging in it. Yes, easy to inflate and travel with but who cares if you can't get a good night's sleep on it? Not a good product.
Bought this to go camping for the weekend. The first night, it half deflated before we even were settle good. By morning, we were completely on teh ground. Second night, we kept the power chord close by, and had to re-inflate it 4 times by morning.
The sleeping bag is made well, light weight and a nice color but I hate the way it feels. It is polyester and is like nails on a chalkboard to me. It also states 35 degree weather but I froze sleeping on my bedroom floor. I had to add a fleece blanket and fleece pjs to stay warm. I would return this in a second if I could.
The first time we used this tent we were disappointed. About a half hour after pitching it began to rain. The rain lasted through the night and into the next day. To be fair, the rain was heavy at times. The tent leaked along the seams and rain seeped through the thin fabric walls. The water didn't stop until we covered the tent with plastic, and moisture remained inside for the duration of the trip. Even when the weather cleared, the plastic removed, and the walls wiped down with a towel it remained cold and damp.
It is a beautiful tent, easy to set up, and the perfect size for two adults and a full size labrador. The tent fit a queen mattress, dog bed, and had room for our bags and gear. We did not use the room divider, and are confident it will not be comfortable for eight people.
We returned this tent and opted for one that is more than "weather resistant".
Adults 5'9 an down would be able to squeeze into these as alternative to expensive 2lbs sleeping bags with the only tradeoff being temperature rating an the bag maybe coming up to their shoulders. Otherwise great for kids. I do believe these to be zip together compatible if you try, (at least they look that way haven't tried).
While this rain poncho is a bit pricey, I think it's a pretty good value. The quality is much better than the cheaper ones made by Coleman. I expect this to last for years, assuming it doesn't get left at camp. It fits my 11 year old daughter well and my 4 year old son can also wear it, though it's quite a bit longer on him. It folds up and fits neatly into the handy 7" x 8.5" zippered pouch it's sold in. Great for camp!
