Best non-canvas tent for 4 people

Had this for 10 years and used 100+ nights. One pole failure after 5 years replaced by B'Wolf no questions asked, height and size perfect, v.robust and watertight and the entry vestibule is a master stroke. Referred to by our camping friends as "The Fortress". It's a 2 person set up, but colour coding hels Show details

Change the poles

I work for a company that use these tents. They are a nice and large design with plenty of room to stand. I must agree with the other reviewer though in regards to the poles. We are constantly wasting time repairing the poles that instead of flexing like they should they snap and in some cases pierce a hole in the fly. With poles not being an item covered under warranty we waste money also on buying more poles from black wolf direct.

Great tent

Mike, very surprised about the pole issue. We have been using our Tuff dome plus for 5 years and the poles are still perfect. The only issue we have had was a connector that snapped. Called Black Wolf and had a replacement in the mail in 2 days. The poles are prestressed; ie pre bent; so can cope with very high winds. They are not meant to be straight when the tent is taken down. We use the tent for about 40 nights a year; winter as well as summer. It's been through a LOT of nasty weather and never leaked. Up in 22 mins, down in 12. A great tent.

Don't buy one!

Liked it because it was suppose to be tuff, not so within 3 days use the pole snapped , rendering the tent useless , returned the tent for a refund and still no result going on 3 weeks now.

Poles need to be fiberglass so they flex , not bend and break like the aluminum one's do and hole the tent ! Absolutely useless .

Don't waste your money , buy the cheapie like my mates did and it out lasted the tuff dome on our recent camping trip .

True story.
Amount of room .
The aluminum poles are useless .

I am thinking of purchasing the Dome 4 and I note the comments re broken poles...
Does anyone know if this issue has been addressed and resolved?????

Hi,
our tent pole also snapped in mild wind. How can I get a replacement. We've only used the tent 3 times.

Is there a solution or an explanation to the Tuff 4's apparent pole issue?
Are these tents not tested for high wind?
I am surprised that such a relatively expensive tent would break a pole easily.

Thanks for the info.

Could I ask another question please? Do the inner tent windows and door have both a mesh and a solid fabric layer? Can they be zippered up/down individually?
