Pros Durable, tall, bombproofTall and spacious, quonset hut-shaped, lots of pockets, adjustable room dividerFast set up, large built-in vestibule, tall ceiling heightSuper versatility, quality build, ease of packing/transportWell-crafted, family-friendly, good head room
Cons Heavy, no separate rainfly, not free standingOnly one vestibule, back door is more exposed to the elements, lots of polesCan't stand in vestibule, limited views when laying or sitting, poor duffel/stuff sackZipper design is funky, less head room, priceyZipper design, no vestibule on fly
Bottom Line On the heavier and more expensive side to say the least, but absolutely built to lastFeel like royalty in this kingdom that offers space galoreIt's hard to imagine a better family camping tent and the price is fairMultiple configurations and quality make this an enviable piece of gearIt's all about family in this large, versatile tent
