I give this tent 5 stars hands down!
This was one of the first tents that we considered and thought would be perfect for our upcoming 4th of July camping trip to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. For over a week we read reviews, watched YouTube videos, found comparables, etc and we just kept coming back to this tent. A few of the reviews we saw on YouTube made it sound like the tent would blow over in the smallest wind gust and we were a little bit nervous about it. But for the price and the added benefit of the screened in "porch" (and one with a floor) we couldn't find another that had those same features. So we decided to bite the bullet and give it a try.
We could not be more pleased with this purchase. First of all, it was an amazing deal. We don't go camping in harsh climates or anything so we don't really need a super expensive, super durable tent. That being said, we want one that if we are caught in a storm, we're not going to let all of us stuff get ruined! That was a wise choice because we have used it twice now and both times we were hit with horrible rain/thunderstorms that could have easily turned terrible if our tent didn't hold up. There were a few, very small, spots that a tiny bit of water leaked in, but considering how hard it rained, for a long time, I was shocked by how much it kept the rain out. We didn't do any sort of sealing or spraying of any kind.
We read some complaints about the corners of the big room not being squared off and taking away square footage, but that wasn't a problem for us - that's where we put our bags. The screened porch area was so nice for leaving our hiking stuff and shoes so we didn't track any dirt into the tent.
Our one minor complaint - some tents we were looking at had spots in the back where you could run an electrical cord though. This one doesn't have anything like that and we had to run a really long extension cord from the outlet, through the front door, all the way along the floor to the back of the tent. Nothing too major, but a feature that would have been a great benefit for us.
All in all, I could not recommend this tent more. It made our camping trip a huge success and we can't wait to use it again!
