Great for car camping!
I bought this tent for my sons over 15 years ago primarily for car camping on the coast. It's too heavy for hiking. It's been a wonderful tent - lots of good ventilation and internal pockets, easy to set up, and very good in showery rain on the coast (which is where we tended to use it). It's now coming to the end of its life, with the seam seal wearing away, but would recommend it for use in a similar situations.
This is a great tent for a couple moving about the place. Not great if want to carry it due to the weight but in saying that - Serves its purpose very well!
Loads of room for 2 - large vestibules for cooking/storage. Inside mesh packets - double layer for insects/ventilation. Great tent!!
Bit heavy for cycle touring but not so bad if sharing the load and allows penty of space for the "rained in" days
Was given to me as a present, was later stolen/lost and then I replaced it with same model which had some more improvements made. Great value tent and easy to use.
Roomy and is free standing. You could use two pegs only if wanted (to stop it blowing away). Tent floor is nice and strong. Good storage area in vestibules.
Gets a bit of condensation build up at times (two people in tent). Do not like how far I have to reach from the inside of the tent to the zip on the fly.
Questions & Answers
In all the info I've been able to retrieve, I still have no idea if this tent has any other openings or windows other than the main entry - as shown.
Does it offer any cross-flow of air?
Does it offer any ventilation?
Yes the new versions available now have fully mesh doors which have two flaps meaning that you can shut the zip on just the mesh or alternatively shut the zip on the material door and reduce airflow. And of course there are two opposite doors so airflow is good that way. Of course on the down side the more zips you have the weaker the structure. In our old tent that we had for more than 10 years it was the zip doors that went on them. We had them replaced and then they went also. So I am not so sure that it is a good design feature to have so many of them.
