    GOOD:
    > Price is right. It feels like decent quality at this price. Good value.
    > Easy to build. Three poles and it’s up. Almost can’t do it wrong.
    > Pretty big inside. The little mesh “loft” thing is a great place to put wallet, flashlight, etc.
    > Pretty compact and fairly light when packed in its case.
    > Carrying case has good handles and is big enough to hold everything (without a ridiculously tight packing job).
    > The zippers work smoothly.

    LESS GOOD:
    > The rain fly is tiny. Looking at the picture, it’s just that blue cap on top, maybe three feet across. That means the majority of the tent is waterproof, and thus not breathable. It needs more vents or bigger windows.
    > Lack of breathability means more condensation inside the tent, even in dry weather. You need to open the windows and door vents as you sleep. BUT, open windows are not waterproof any longer, so if it rains, you’ll be awakened by raindrops. If you anticipate rain, you have to close all the vents, which means condensation will get you moist inside anyway…
    > The general construction is light. Materials are thin. I will have to be careful to move zippers slowly so I don’t tear anything.

    OVERALL:
    Overall, I am satisfied. This will get us through many Cub Scout campouts, all for the price of renting a tent three times.

    I think a better tent in this size is the Eureka Timerline series, but it costs almost three times what this one costs. That tent has an entire roof that is breathable, with a huge rain fly. So if I had it to do over, I might just buy up to the Eureka and be done with it – the tent I’ll probably end up buying at some point, anyway.

    So I took my tent out for a bachelor party weekend for my future brother in law back in March 2010 for a long weekend. Thankfully, I had the foresight to do a trial run to work out how to put the tent together because this was my first 5 sided tent. Setup was a breeze!!! Only problem I had was putting the rain cover on because I put it on facing the wrong way. It did better than expected because I set up my tent on wet ground and never felt wet the whole time. No moisture got in which is awesome when it got down to the 30s and I stayed dry. I have had a Wenzel sleeping bag for at least 15 years which is why I went with them for this tent. I will definitely use them again!
