Pros Dark room technology, easy to set up, good price pointTall 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 Not as bombproof as higher-end tents, no frillsOnly 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 Simple, basic tent, with one big, stand-out featureFeel 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
