4.7 out of 5 stars
Love the Tent, Very watertight

This tent has served us well on a couple of cross-country trips, even keeping us dry and cozy on a very wet, rainy night. This was enabled by the way the fly goes all the way to the ground. In response to the concerns about thin floors - it feels thin because it is actual ripstop nylon not polyethylene tarp material like cheaper tents, but always use a groundcloth to preserve your tent.

Great tent

Used this tent the last 2 weeks turkey hunting and it performed very well.. We had high winds (25-30 mph gust), heavy rain then sleet and snow then more heavy rain and wind and never felt it.. Great tent..

Good Tent

Purchased this tent for the upcoming summer months and intend to use it hunting this fall. Some reviews noted the thin floor. Once I set it up, I agree the floor is very thin. I purchased the separate floor saver and I still have concerns with the durability and how weather-proof the floor is. On the positive side, the poles are thick and appear to be sturdy. The full coverage rain-fly seems well built and coverage is good. I'm 6' and can stand up in the center of the tent. Giving 4 stars due to ease of set-up and overall function of the tent. That may go up or down once we start using it, especially in adverse weather for hunting season. I will note I had it up with approx. 20 mph wind gusts and attaching the guy-outs really secured the tent well.
