Northeast Camper - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
This tent has plenty of room for our family of 4. I'd give the size, color, and overall design a 4 star review, but there were just too many other issues that can't be overlooked. As other reviews have mentioned, the front zipper gets stuck pretty much every time you try to use it, especially when trying to open the zipper with one hand (because your other hand is full of stuff you don't want setting in the dirt). Adults and children struggled with the zipper constantly. The floor of the tent doesn't lay flat on the ground and has large wrinkles in it. The instructions say to set the poles first and then stake it down so we did that at first. Then we thought staking it first would help with the floor wrinkling, so we tried that, but it's impossible to lay the floor flat and set the poles because it tweaks the nylon upper too much. The poles are also very lightweight and flimsy. The $25 Ozark Trail tent we bought 10 years ago has more durable poles. Lastly, it's not entirely waterproof. We used it, with a tarp beneath it, for a 3 night trip in the northeast when it rained each night and had a few showers during the day. For the most part the tent was dry inside, which was pretty great considering the weather. But a small puddle formed on both sides of the tent where water had obviously leaked through seams. The tent is well ventilated though and we didn't have any problems with moisture condensing on the inside.
