Great Tent for the Price
on 13 December 2014
First of all it is waterproof, the ones that are saying it's not have probably never been camping before and squeal at the smallest sign of water. When it rains, water does't get in, simple as. However if you're on low ground or are camping in a 'bowl like' patch or something with heavy rain and flooding, I can't really comment on that and you shouldn't be camping in those kind of grounds anyway.
What everyone is probably experiencing is water on the inside surface of the tent, this happens to most tents, and unless you shell out for an expensive one; it'll get moist inside and this will happen, but it's simple; don't touch the sides! It's really big for it's description and can probably get about 3 normal sized peeps in (if you're not fat) so plenty of space.
Easy to get out and pop up, and put away again (a 5 year old could do it). This is the perfect tent for casual camping anywhere you please, I don't know why people shell out so much for a tent other than to get a bigger size. It's a great price and it has done me well so far, no rips or cheap quality to be found. The only cons I can think of is that I would like a bug net for the door, rather it's just one zip flap, and maybe a couple of pockets inside the tent, but that's just me being picky and I can't complain for the price.
Also- you're not going to find 4.5 or 5 star cheap tents anywhere (trust me I looked) as it seems people always like to have a gripe and a moan about tents, and reading most of them I think it's their first time and they didn't like the camping experience in itself, so should stay indoors. So if you find 3.5 or 4 stars then consider it, as most of the 1 star 2 stars are just ridiculous complaints and they should just stick to their house. *Side note* Do not light a fire near this tent, any ambers will set this thing up faster than dry wood, it applies with all tents and you should know this, but there we go; make the fire at least 15-20 feet away and downwind of the tent.
