There were only a couple of video reviews for this tent, so I felt like making my own since my camera shoots in 1080p. At the time this video was shot I had not yet camped in this tent, only set it up in my yard. My first impressions of the tent were good though, in my opinion, this tent is not as huge as some make it sound in their reviews on Amazon. I apologize that the video(s) ran a bit long. Hopefully my review helps you make your determination in whether or not this tent is for you.
*FYI, I was going to make another video when I was camping in this but ended up being way too busy. The tent held up well but did leak with heavy rain. The leaking wasn’t horrible, we stayed dry… but there were puddles near the corners of the big sleeping area, and also some next to the big zip up flaps of the screen room. I would recommend using some seam sealer and ensuring you’re on the levelest spot possible, this may have contributed to the leaking as my site was not very level.*
Also, please do not leave me comments telling me how to “properly” set up and tighten down a tent. While I am not some outdoor freak who camps constantly, I do know what I am doing. I am well aware of the concept of making everything tightened down and running the guide wires. This tent still has the waviness issue on one side that everyone who posts pictures has. This can NOT be corrected by pulling ANY part of the tent tighter. So unless you own this tent yourself, and can demonstrate that waviness in a video and then corrected in another, do not tell me I’m not pulling it tight enough. You can tighten the floor as much as you want, but this has zero affect on the top, where the waviness occurs. In addition to this, I already mentioned in the video annotations that the collapsing pole no longer happened after re positioning it and running the guide wires, so you do not need to tell me to do that. Thank you.
