    I have no idea how this company did it but this tent has features found in $200+ tents. The tent material is rugged and water proof. The interior tent is mesh and the rain fly doesn't touch the interior wall which prevents condensation from dripping onto you and your gear. It comes with vents with flexible props. The zippers are smartly placed making it easy to get in and out of the tent. The rainfly has clip in buckles that are adjustable. The guy lines are slide adjustable. The tent poles are DAC press fit and really flexible. It is a self standing tent, meaning you don't have to use guylines to keep it from falling down and you can pick it up and move it easily. I mean, I was honestly looking at higher dollar tents and they kept showing features that this tent has.Bonus: Clostnature now has a footprint for their tents. The one for the single person tent is only 4 ounces.
    This tent was really easy to assemble. It kept good heat in, and I didn't feel like I was over-heating with humidity and heat on a moderate night 60's F. This tent had enough room for me, my bags, and equipment, but not much else. This is strictly a sleeping tent, you can sit up straight in the center but there is a sense of restriction and even hunching over to fit. I am 5'4 and average sized. THere was moderate condensation around my head area but the rest of the tent was great. It dried quickly once I opened the tent up in the morning. Additionally, if you can anchor with tent poles, it can be free standing, just a little loose. Love my tent. Love my tent.
    I bought this to replace an older solo-backpacking tent I had.For the price I didn't expect much, but it seems very well-built. Only time will tell if if holds up like my last one (which I had for over 12 years and performed like a champ on MANY trips. I only had to replace it because it was getting difficult for me to get in and out of).Set up was a breeze: only two poles, which were easy to attach and clip and also cut down on weight (instead of having multiple poles).I used it with the rain fly off for a couple nights and the screen top makes stargazing in your sleeping bag a wonderful way to wind down the day.With the rain fly on, I didn't feel trapped at all and air circulation didn't seem to be any problem.I would definitely recommend this as a great solo tent if you are looking for a budget-conscious shelter when you are starting out, since I don't know what the longevity will be yet. If it holds up like my last one, though, it would be an excellent investment.

    DO NOT BUY THIS TENT UNLESS YOU READ THIS: This tent is designed for one person to take backpacking/hiking with them. It is NOT designed for comfort, it is not designed for two people, and it is not designed for people over 6 feet tall. Do not buy this tent if you want something you can spend waking hours "hanging out" in. This is a lightweight tent designed to keep you dry and mosquito free while you sleep, and it functions incredibly well for this purpose.I'm 5'11" and fit just perfectly in the tent - I could lay without my head or feet touching - but only barely. I had to be creative with my gear to keep it dry - there is space under the rain fly outside of the tent where I put my unloaded pack to keep it dry. This worked perfectly, and all my gear (unloaded) would fit around me inside the tent.I used this tent every day for 27 straight days on the Superior Hiking Trail. It kept me perfectly dry through 7 thunderstorms. This was probably my favorite product I had with me on the trip.The tent stakes are needed to erect the tent - it isn't free standing. In other words, if you'll be camping in the mountains, this probably won't work for you. I didn't have any problems on the SHT.WHO SHOULDN'T BUY THIS TENT? If you're over 6' tall, camping from your car, looking to spend waking hours (more than maybe an hour or two) inside a tent or camping on rocky surfaces, this tent isn't for you. Look elsewhere, you'll be disappointed by this.WHO SHOULD BUY THIS TENT? A hiker or backpacker looking to cut weight out of their pack will be absurdly pleased with this product. It will serve all the needs of a dedicated backwoodsman - it is high quality, durable, and keeps you dry out of the box. If you fall into the category of "cutting ounces from my hiking pack" and are on a budget, make this purchase. It will meet your needs perfectly.
    April 24, 2016 (First use)Wow! Such a neat tent in such a small package.Super simple set up even for my first time pitching a non-freestanding tent.Looks awesome once its all set up.I was very surprised at how much room I had inside from side to side. Height clearance isn't really there though(as expected).I am 5'6, 170 pounds with wide shoulders...I was able to prop myself up on my elbow to do stuff inside the tent but could not sit up. This made rolling up my gear a pain, so I think I will stick with doing all that outside of the tent from now on (if weather permits). But even in this awkward position, I was still able to roll up two sleeping bags (one mummy, one standard) and my sleeping pad all well enough to fit in their stuff sacks.I was also able to keep my large backpacking pack inside the tent with me (at the head), which made my feet barely touch the end.A couple concerns I had were if the rain fly provided any kind of vestibule and if you could use this as a 1.5 person tent (fit a couple inside snugly).First: The rainfly did not really provide any vestibule other than to put my sneakers outside (leaning up against the tent). But I do plan on trying to manipulate how I install it next time to increase the size.Second: TBA... After trying it out by myself, I feel like I could fit my significant other inside with me without being too cramped. Will be testing soon.I spent the night in the mountains of New Mexico around 8,000 feet elevation. Temps got down to 44 F with some occasional wind gusts. The wind did not phase this tent one bit. And when I woke up, there was literally zero condensation inside, which was a great surprise.In the morning, it was very easy to break down and shake out (sand from one of my sleeping bags haha). The door position makes shaking out debris very easy and effective. Folding everything back into its original stuff sack was very easy as well.It was pretty obvious that this tent was made of very good quality materials and I was pretty happy with the purchase.May 3, 2016 (second use)THIS TENT CAN SLEEP TWO PEOPLE!!! Definitely a 1.5 person tent width wise...I took my significant other camping as promised and tested this out with two people... We are both 5'6 and we both workout (so neither are skinny), and not only did we fit, but we fit flat on our backs side by side comfortably and she had no complaints. How awesome is that!?!?We used two mummy bags (one Winterial and one SussieSport), no sleeping pads.I forgot to check the temps the next morning, but we woke up in snow. (2 nights later shows 29F low). And with this set up we were both very warm, comfortable with room, and had no significant condensation to complain about in the morning. The only moisture inside the tent in the morning I suspect was from the snow melting and seeping through the rainfly, BUT none of it came raining down on us as we got up and out of the tent - BIG plus!We did sort of cheat and use my truck to block the wind coming up the mountainside, so I can't comment on wind performance this time.Next up: Sand dunes camping.Will update as necessary!
    Constructed as specified and is well worth the money. I made a test run in my backyard on a windy and rainy night. The rain was very heavy at times and the next morning there was not 1 drop of moisture inside the tent. At 3 pounds it's perfect for backpacking, but not if you are over 6 feet. I does have enough room for a backpack either placed behind your head (easier that way) or at the foot area. You have to unzip the mesh to sit up and purchase 6 more stakes to completely set up the tent if it's windy. One hint: be sure to tie the UNDERSIDE of the fly to the DAC poles or the netting will sag when inside the tent. Otherwise, it sets up like any other tent but is NOT free standing. Stake slightly taunt then progress to the rest of the easy setup. I don't use the tote bag/sack as I just stuff it in a waterproof Ascend bag. A very nice tent/bivy. If you have room in your backpack, you may want to consider a footprint as the tent floor can be punctured on jagged surfaces.

    I purchased this tent after spending countless hours researching tents, crawling in and out of them, comparing features, and studying set up and weight. This product came in under cost for what I had planned on spending, and I have gotten a chance to test it in fairly poor weather conditions.This tent weighs about 2 pounds 12 ounces. I immediately ditched the steel stakes it came with and chose to use 3 lightweight aluminum stakes instead. One for the vestibule, two for the corners on the opposite side of the tent. This held well in winds 5-10 miles per hour in both tests, I have not tested it above these conditions.It is small. I am 6'3" 200 pounds and there was not much extra room inside. That being said I was extremely comfortable. The smaller size allowed my body temperature to heat the inside fairly quickly. I used a thermarest self inflating pad large sized inside, with a quilt and a blanket in 34 degree Fahrenheit temperatures and was warm all night.Setup and take down is incredibly easy, and can be done in under two minutes.During test #2, it rained/snowed all night. A footprint is a must. Water did come through the bottom of the tent without one, but my mattress kept me off the ground. It did not pool through, but moisture did come through the floor.There are two vents at the top of this tent that help to reduce condensation, as well as four loops up top you can string oaracord through to hang things like socks to dry.The vestibule was big enough I could put my kelty coyote 85 liter off to one side and still had enough room to get in and out of the tent.As I continue to use this tent through upcoming trips I will add to this review if needed. For the price, features, and performance so far, this is the best bang For the buck especially if you're on a budget.Happy camping, feel free to message me with any questions. And ditch those heavy steel stakes.
    I've had this tent for about 2 years now. I love and adore it, and it's lasted a bunch of trips. It is a great fit for one person plus gear (I'm a strong independent hiking woman who don't need no man). I also love that the rain cover goes all the way to the ground and has a vestibule to keep the dirty stuff outside and dry.
    Listen here my fellow campers. I am one of those people that does extensive research before making any purchase so that I am sure its what I want, and I dont end up spending 100+ dollars on something I will regret later. I was so happy with this purchase, I am not sure where to start explaining. Ive camped probably 8 times with this tent since Ive bought it, from Desert heat in the Mojave to Snow in the Sequoias, even really windy conditions at the top of some ridges, even rain and hail storms. This tent has not only held up great, but its kept me really dry.

    My nonprofit, BACKatYOU.org bought 25 of these tents during the pandemic to help those who are homeless stay sheltered and safe. We search for a while before buying these because we needed something that was waterproof and wind resistant. We could not find this product anywhere else for this price. I highly recommend these tents and have recommended them to those who want to help by buying and donating tents to organizations helping our unhoused neighbors during this scary time.
    I have now used this tent for a total of 8 nights of outdoor camping and 1 night of indoor "quarantine" camping. Now that I've had some time in the tent, I feel like I have a pretty good handle on the pros and cons of the single layer tent.Pros:--Great price--Easy set up and takedown--Waterproof on the outside (I had one night of heavy rain and wind and my tent didn't leak!)--Spacious for one person plus a ton of gear--Huge door--Ability to take small rain fly off to vent the tent better--Nice color; I've gotten so many compliments on my little blue tent--Lightweight and very packable.Cons:--The poles are light but I question the quality for longterm use. I am gentle with them and haven't had any issues yet but I predict that they will be the first things that need to be replaced--I wish this tent had clips instead of feeding the poles through the sleeves. It's not particularly hard to shove them through but it can be frustrating when the sleeve gets caught on the pole.--The tent does not come with a footprint and it is hard to find one that fits. Night Cat says a footprint is not necessary but I'd be reluctant to go without.--You will need to vent this tent to avoid condensation when it's cold. I found that staking out the flap of the door and taking off the rain fly on a night without rain did the trick.--Stakes are a bit flimsy so I replaced those with some better stakes from REIOverall, I love this tent. I'm not an experienced camper and I'm pleased by this choice for my first tent. I hope to get much more use out of it while trying to stay outdoors and away from people during the pandemic!
    I’ve used 2 times I found it easy to set up and take down with plenty of space a good little tent I’m 6’5 I have no problems with space It’s a good size for solo motorcycle riders who go camping

    This tent is truly amazing. We bought 3 tents and used for 2 nights in the Smoky Mountains last week. One night was at a campground and the second night was a backpacking hike to a camp site . The tent is extremely easy to set up AND is totally waterproof- we had 2 nights of crazy thunderstorms and stayed completely dry!!!!!!!!!! In fact, I am so pleased with the tent, I circled back to write this review. Another big plus is that you don’t have to struggle to stuff it back in the bag! The tent is very lightweight, less than 3 pounds, and took up very little area of back pack. The material is thin, but that is fine because it is so lightweight, waterproof and very functional. The two zippers worked very well. You cannot sit completely upright in it ( I am 5 ft 4), but again that is an ok trade- off. Lastly, I think in the future, I might carry some lightweight string to use fly feature of using fly door as an awning, if no rain in the forecast- would just secure string to trees. Also, the actual room in tent is fine- I used a camp mattress and sleeping bag and still had room for belongings. Lastly, the ventilation area is wonderful, especially if you don’t have to use the fly tarp.
    It's definitely light, and easy to setup. I used a couple sticks I hammered in the ground to prop the door open which allowed for a nice breeze during the night. I like the big side door as well, makes it much easier for getting in and out. I hope to get a lot of use out of it.
    Excited to try this out next spring for a backpacking trip! Very light, packs down small. Once staked down, it seems sturdy (was worried about a one ridge pole design).The sleeve for the ridge pole feels like cheap vinyl leather shorts or something, I worry that will be the first thing to go. I will be careful to not rip the tent, as it isn’t the most durable in construction. For the price, I’m happy with this tent.

    HERE IS ALMOST EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS TENT! We accompanied our daughter's 4th grade class on her first backpacking trip last week. She was set to share a tent with a friend and the school offered mismatched garage sale tents as their only option - unless they provided their own. I wanted a good 3 person tent that would give them enough room to put their packs inside and sleep comfortably. Most important was the weight - they were only allowed to carry 1/3 of their body weight in their packs. For my daughter this meant a mere 17 lbs and her friend only 20 lbs, so a light tent was a MUST (and needless to say, I didn't want to spend $400 on a backpackers tent)! This tent, split between the two of them was only 2.2 lbs each (I carried the 15 oz footprint). I searched through Amazon for hours reading specs and reviews from real people and I kept coming back to this tent. We needed the tent here within 2 days so having an Amazon Prime membership meant I wouldn't have to pay a huge fee for expedited shipppng. I also bought the footprint that goes with this tent and I was so glad I did... it rained on us throughout our hike into the Los Padres National Forest and the ground was wet and muddy. The bugs were really bad too! This tent was a snap to put up and two ten year old girls did it in minutes. The tarp fit perfectly under each corner pole securing it and ensuring it wouldn't move, even with the girls going in and out of the tent constantly. The directions were simple to follow and had pictures for every step, unlike my extremely expensive Papa Hubba tent which required I go on YouTube to figure out how to secure the rainfly! The rainfly was great, attaching to the tent easily and it even came with a good amount of cord to tie it down and really durable stakes! Again, these stakes were easier to use and held up better than the expensive after market ones I bought from REI! 2 doors meant they could get cross ventilation during the day even with the rainfly, since each side rolled up easily and had 2 built in latches to secure it. As we sat in our $450 tent, with doors that were difficult to access with the rainfly in place, I was actually jealous of my daughter's $100 tent that could form a covered entryway by extending the door section of the rainfly out and propping it up with our hiking poles (or sticks would work)! There were handy pockets inside the tent for little things you needed to access easily and a place to hang their solar lantern from the center of the top (you just need a twist tie or carabiner). The zippers never stuck and they were pretty rough on them (since the bugs were terrible, it was a mad dash to open the tent and jump in and zip it up quickly before the critters came in with you). Even with the rainfly doors rolled up, there was a vestibule section on either side for dirty shoes or their entire packs - since 2 other girls who opted to use a school tent went to put it up only to find it was missing a pole and completely useless - so a third girl bunked in this tent the last night and the packs came out. It had plenty of room for 3 girls, their full sized pads and a bunch of stuff. It easily packs back into the little zippered bag (which has tie downs on it to cinch it down even further) and we even fit the footprint into the compact tent bag as well! THE ONLY NEGATIVE WE ENCOUNTERED: My daughter's friend's father was hanging out in the tent with her and he said he couldn't lay down flat unless he laid on a diagonal. He is about 6 feet tall. He loved the tent so much he was considering buying one but it was just a little too short. We are NOT tall people so that doesn't matter to us in the least, but if you are, you might want to consider this one point. The last qualification I'll add is that while we did set it up right after a rain (and there was water between the footprint and the tent which never came through the bottom at all) we didn't use the tent during an active rain storm. I doubt there would have been any problems, but if you're headed out camping in the rain and this concerns you, set it up first and hose it down to make sure.FOR THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY, YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER QUALITY TENT THAN THIS ONE - and even for more money you may still prefer this tent 😉
    Two adults, two children (7&10) and a 70 lb German Shepard climbed in on our first night out with this tent as the rain started. All night I could here the rain down HARD! I kept waiting for the leaking to start, never did! All of us were bone dry. Very warm.Great tent
    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.  Out of the box I am very happy with this tent. It is fairly lightweight, which is a good thing since I plan to take it backpacking with my wife (you can see it fully packed in the picture of my hiking pack, orange bag). Set up was quick and easy even with one person, and by going with a 3 person tent rather than a 2 both my wife and I will fit just fine with a decent amount of room left for our hiking packs and gear. This tent packs up very small and neat, and I am able to hang it off the back of my hiking pack just fine. The height is decent enough that you can crouch and move around inside, but I should note that I am 5ft 6 and laying down there is only a little extra length left from end to end. That being said, if you are taller than that you will probably have to lay at an angle or in a semi-fetal position to fit. Some nice features are the fact that it has entrances on 2 sides (only one side has the option for a covered awning area), and the fact that while it has no windows they did include two nifty pop-out air vents on either side for ventilation when needed. The inside of the outer cover for the tent is also covered in a silver semi-reflective material, which I assume is meant to help hold in heat. There is also a little hook for hanging things at the peak of the roof inside, and I purchase a little AAA battery powered led hanging light to go there, which I think will work out great. Just know that they worked to keep the weight low, so there are no additional features such as interior hanging pockets, etc. The design is very minimalistic. All of that being said, this tent looks to pretty good quality, especially for the price. Still, the material seems rather thin, which is to be expected given that light weight was the goal in the design, but I would definitely recommend that you purchase some kind of a base layer tarp to protect the bottom of the tent, as well as have some kind of tape, etc. to do emergency patching in the field just in case. I can't really speak to the durability and wind and water resistance of this tent yet, but I will update my review and post more pictures when we actually get a chance to take it out on the trail. Thanks guysUPDATE: For an in-depth review, check out my video review from my Youtube page, "Happily Ever Outdoors".[...]

    My goal/purchase is for a late spring to mid summer stargazing trip overnight to 2 night maximum in the high desert with telescope. Maximum goal of 13-15lbs of total carry weight. Out of all the tent types available on the market, I decided on a bivy tent due to light weight, easy setup and simple yellow hue just in case for emergencies in the future. My past outdoor experience and current budget for new proper equipment was extremely important factor of my purchase decision. The competition charges double or more in price for similar quality.When I received my package, I was questionable about the tent itself due to lack of no logo on tent, no set-up instructions, or no advertising on the small dull brown box it was packaged in. After examining the tent frame and all the pieces, tent sewing and zippers are of good quality. I was disappointed that the floor of this bivy tent is not made with heavy tarp material that is standard in most bathtub bottom dome-like tent infrastructures. Maybe this is the reason due to its light weight. After erecting the bivy tent upon my floor, I hopped into it. I was happy with the construction of the tent and the independent double sided zippers for a full head enclosure bug-screen and full sealed enclosure with protected vent. I’m a man of 40 years old, 5’11”, husky build and I felt a little restrictive but comfortable within the bivy tent fully enclosed. I was able to turn on either side and pull my knees up slightly for comfort noting this bivy tent will be used to sleep in only. There is plenty room inside for a basic compact inflatable mat and compact lightweight sleeping bag. A person may be able to sleep comfortably with a small daypack by their side with personals within the tent enclosed. I would not recommend this tent for anyone taller than 6 foot do to its restriction in dimension.I’ve tested a few areas on the erected tent with a spray bottle of water. I’ve soaked the outside by foot area, dead center, and outer head area with all the zippers sealed of the erected bivy tent. I’ve let sit for several minutes and hopped in, I found no seepage and the inside was dry. I did not test the bottom, due to intended use of outer footprint when outdoors. I would recommend a new outer sealant coating after first season of use.I would recommend a separate outer tarp or footprint for the ground/flooring for the tent via outdoor usage. This is to prevent damage to the thin bottom layer and possible seepage from rain, condensation, unwelcome invitation of outdoor bugs, and etc.For the price, this generic non logo bivy tent should provide a few seasons of standard usage. As for all tents, take care and gently thread (don’t force) erected poles into/through the tent liners to prevent accidental tearing when erecting or disassembling of tent.
    This tent is very small and compact. It weighs only a coupleof pounds. It is great for backpacking in the back country. Setup of the tent takes less than 5 minutes, you have to setup two poles and 4 stakes. It is a very easy setup. The tent is sealed really well so it keeps the air inside helping keep you warm at night. I am really happy with the quality and design of this tent.
    This small bivy is meant to be lightweight shelter from the elements if you are not car camping or attending an organization type event. The tent is not free standing but relies on the tension from staking the front and rear down. The included guy lines also help with the larger loop that is located near the head area. I purchased a can of silicone spray and coated it twice (drying in between sprays) for additional protection, especially around the seams. I had one night of heavy rain that lasted about 5 hours and this remained completely dry. This was an an extra precaution and can not speak to whether spray was required but I do this with all my camping shelters.This tent went packed is small and light weight. I am not claustrophobic so the tight space does not bother me.No steam or morning drips from the top of bivy when I keep the vent window open.Unpacking and setup along with break down is fast and does not take away precious daylight in my backpacking excursions.

    I serve as a scout master for BSA, and I never thought it was possible for a man like me to get giddy over a tent until setting this thing up in my living room. Seriously, a 2-person tent that is 88 inches long and 55 inches wide that can weigh around 3lbs for $120! This 2015 Salida 2 is so fast and easy to set up and take down. I researched just about every tent out there before buying this one, and I even bought and returned 6 along the way. If it's helpful to know, some of the tents that became scratched off my list were the Kelty Gunnison 2.3, Trail Ridge 3, Marmot Tungston, and Nemo Galaxi. All of those are great tents, but I've come to believe you need to find a tent that is right for you. This Salida 2 is very well made and engineered, and that fact that Kelty made it caused this to be a major selling point for me (I have a Kelty Snowfall that is nearly 20 years old, and it is still an excellent tent today).I've taken as many pictures as what seemed necessary to give all of you the best idea of what this tent and its features look like (this is one of my good deeds for the day #DoAGoodTurnDaily). I may post some updated pictures later once I take it out and have it completely guyed out. It doesn't come with a gear loft, but the guys from Kelty recommended purchasing a gear attic from Sierra Designs (made by Kelty) as the Kelty gear loft totally clashes with the orange one they advertise and this green on this tent.One thing I noticed once taking this tent out of its bag is that the rain fly is not that pure white color that you see in the pictures. There's a bit of a greenish tint to it, but I think it looks terrific. The storage bag is also a little different compared to the typical storage sacks out there, but I love how easy it is to remove and return the tent from it.Hope this is helpful to you all!
    Just took this tent on a 3 day backpacking trek in Hawaii. It is a little on the heavier side for my size and weight (5'2" and 105 lbs) but with my budget this was a good choice. It poured the first night and the bottom of my tent was soaked between the footprint and the tent floor but it never soaked through to inside the tent, I stayed nice and dry. The reason it got 3 stars is because it is HOT. It was a pretty humid night but I was roasting in there! The rain fly is pretty tight and flush to the tent and there are no vents. At one point I actually thought I might be suffocating...I'm probably going to rig up some vents and hopefully not ruin the tent. I would definitely not consider this a 3 season tent, more just spring/fall tent.
    For those who don't like a long-winded review, I'll start with the most important here: This is a fantastic lightweight backpacking tent that will not break the bank, and I honestly feel that it is the best possible choice for the money.I purchased this tent, along with a Kelty Salida 2, for a backpacking trip down Havasupai (Grand Canyon). Since then, I have also taken the tent to Zion Narrows, Rim to Rim, and some other shorter backpacking trips. The tent has held up flawlessly, and has truly exceeded my expectations for a backpacking tent under $200. Allow me to list some pros and cons:Pros:- Lightweight and cost efficient. The weight is comparable to brands such as Big Agnes, but 1/2 the cost. Ditch the bag and the rainfly (at your own risk) if you need it lighter.- Good ventilation, while still retaining warmth. We do not experience the morning moisture on the inside of the tent.- SUPER easy setup, can stand alone without stakes. With only 2 poles, I can easily set up the tent myself in under 5 minutes. The standalone design is nice too. The only easier tent I've ever set up was the pop-up (and that's cheating).- Quality material - I primarily camp/hike in the AZ desert, and have not had any problems with the material ripping on our cacti and other harsh terrain.- Has a rain-fly. While this is pretty much standard in all tents, some folks asked this question, so I thought I would note it.- Spacious - while it is rated for 4 (and 4 could fit, shoulder to shoulder) I would say that this fits 2-3 comfortably WITH gear inside. Also there is a small space in the front (under the rainfly when set up) that also allows for gear storage.Cons:- Tent stakes are sub-par. I would recommend buying custom lightweight stakes, as the ones included in this package bend far too easily in soils that are not soft.- Footprint is an additional purchase - while not mandatory I DO like having a footprint, which is an extra $30.- Front of rainfly requires tension stake. Not a HUGE problem, but does cause issues if camping in rocky soil due to very malleable tent stakes.- Only a 3-season tent. While 4-season tents are hard to come by, this tent does get very cold during winter camping.Take my following considerations in mind when purchasing this, but honestly I feel it is one of the best products that I own for camping. For one step up in quality, you're looking at about $200-300 dollar price increase. As long as you aren't camping in freezing conditions, this tent will be everything that you need!

    Great tent for the price, far cheaper and lighter than those sold at major sporting good stores. It is roomy for one person, good vestibule space.
    Bought this tent for my backpacking trip next month. Set up in my backyard, it has plenty of room for me inside and super lightweight, compacts into a tiny package. Can't wait for my trip! Highly recommend.
    I bought this tent, amazingly light, good for a light weight backpacker. Easy to set up and plenty of ventilation for those humid nights in forest.

    For the price, I don’t think you can beat it! Enough height to suit up and get into cold weather gear. Did well in the cold of Colorado. Love the vent and the front porch was big enough for my backpack, shoes & camelbak. I kinda like that the poles are connected all together as one. Awesome that it comes with a foot print.Why a 4 instead of 5? Wish it had a pocket on the inside side for stuff, rain fly on the long ends lets it’s about 4 inches shy of converting to the bottom so rain drops onto the very edge of the main tent... still does fine but as you know, it eventually leaks in hard rain. But, that is not to complain - just small things as far as I’m concerned. Best inexpensive tent I’ve bought. I run a camping ministry so we buy tents each year. I own 6 of these... I’d recommend this without hesitation!
    It's packed small and lightweight. I normally tied it under by backpack. It's easy to set up. I have slept in it on the mountain at around 15F. It's reasonable warm. One issue I have is the condensation in the outer layer. Maybe it can have a vent at both ends, instead of having only one. Considering the price range, I recommend it and still give it a five-star.
    I read the previous review about this tent not having a place to steak out the rain fly so, I sewed some lines with paracord on each end. I also plan on using the footprint mat bag to store things in since there is not a pocket inside the tent.

    My husband recommended that I get this for its positive reviews, in particular for putting together. I was doubtful but it proved me wrong. We took it camping and it was easy to put together and roomy. Just perfect for what I need it for.
    Disclaimer: I haven't camped in this tent yet, but set it up in the living room after it arrived. I was greatly pleased with the overall look, function and quality. I have always bought big name tents in the past, but if this thing holds up like I think it will, I will never spend big bucks on a name brand ever again.
    I rarely write reviews. Typically only when something seriously sucks or is amazing. Granted, I have yet to sleep in this tent during a storm, it's been pitched in my yard for the last week. I can say this:The grey is a stunning color. I'm color blind but every time I look at the tent is screams beautiful.It took me less than five minutes to pitch...that was the first time, will take two going forward.Rain fly comes with. Easy to install...looks unisex...either way will mount to the four corners.Dual exits a HUGE PLUS....I can't sleep in tents when I feel trapped.Ceiling vents great for hot months, added bonus.Love the size. Yes, two adult person tent or for me myself and two large dogs.Areas to attach lanterns, or perhaps netting inside the tent if you want to store scarf, mits or hats if it gets cold.Exterior flaps have a toggle to hold folded.Interior bug screens have a pocket to store the flap so if not needed it isn't in the way.Inside there are clips to mount a lantern.Damn....I'm almost 50 and to have a tent this light (fits in my day pack" with all these features is a fabulous pic.I am not confident in 100% rain proof since it does not have "wings" to encourage rain to run away from the tent long term, but spraying the tent for 5 min with fly didn't phase it or create any leaks. I love the fact that on hot nights (Im in TX) the entire tent is open to the stars with insect protection.HIGHEST HOPES. GREAT PRICE. YES TO ADULT SIZE TENT OR WITH DOGS, TWO EXITS, QUALITY ZIPPERS AND I CAN'T SELL THE GREY COLOR ENOUGH. ITS STUNNING. Thank you.

    Truly light weight, my other set up is a hammock,a bug net, and then rain fly takes forever to get it set up....the night cat was fast and easy to set up, keeps the wind off the top of you really good, I'd like to have a undequilt to go with it because I live in the north east and to keep the weight down on my pack, I'm super stoked I spent hours in a down pour in it no leaks or issues I really love this so compact it's 4 lbs lightern
    My buddy and I both bought hammock tents for a float trip. He went with another brand. Ended sleeping tangled up half on the ground in a mess of netting and line. Not me. Even(more than) a few beers in I was able to set this bad boy up with zero issues. Packs small, tons of open space, easy to get in and out of, closes completely from bugs and..holds weight. I would have been miserable without it. I'll be recommending it to anyone in the market.
    My husband is very happy with this hammock tent. He was impressed with how easy it is to set up and how comfortable it is. He has been bragging about it to all of his friends. It came with more accessories than some other friends who also made hammock purchases lately and was lighter weight and easier to set up, especially since it comes with everything you could need! I found it thoughtful of Night Cat to check in with us and make sure that we were satisfied with their product.
