    I purchased this for a 4 day camping trip. It ended up raining for most of the trip. And I mean pouring rain. Everything was soaked. Except the inside of my tent. This little guy held up great. I got to the campsite just in time and with help of 4 friends we put it together within 5 minutes as the rain was starting. It was smaller than expected but it fit a cot very nicely. Without a cot it could probably sleep 2 people but no more than that.

    I usually backpack camp and let the sun wake me up, but for car camping and festivals you usually like to sleep in. This is dark enough you need a flash light to find the window zipper when you wake. No headlights from vehicles woke me up, no flashlights from ppl walking around make it into the tent. Otherwise it’s just a tent.

    I’m not sure what I expected from darkroom technology, some kind of magic, I don’t know.. but what I got was a quality tent and for the money, bravo!

    Easy set upZipped up easyPerfect for 2 adultsIt rained and we stayed warm and dry.The dark room was perfect as we slept till 9 am

    This is the 4-person dark room version. It is very cool looking and can be set up/taken down by one person relatively easily. It really does fit back into its bag (with a little squishing effort), along with all the parts. The materials are typical quality for a tent at this price point. Expect to seal the seams if you use in wet environment. The corner zippered opening for a power cord was one of the selling features for me, but if nothing else gets seam-sealed, THIS spot should. Everyone who has mentioned this feature has said it leaks in the rain. Caveat emptor. Also, the vent pictured on the bottom rear for some versions is not present in the dark room version. Some have complained about that vent being a source for water getting into tent; others like the air it provides. YMMV. But if you like it really dark when you sleep, this is the tent for you.The walls and underside of the rainfly are very opaque, and the rainfly extends a tad lower on this model than the other ones–another selling point for me. Should you sleep with the rainfly off, it’s very open and airy, but when buttoned up, it’s extremely dark. I should mention that below where the tent wall and the bathtub-type floor meet, the flooring material that curves up is not as light occluding as the other material. So, in the day time, there’s a band of light around the bottom (see picture). Could be a potential future modification with duct tape, but air mattress(es) would likely cover most of that. However, that raises another issue.As other reviewers have mentioned, this is NOT a tent for 4 people. Only 2 adults max, and they would have to be pretty friendly. In the picture of the inside, there’s a 3X6 foot pad on the floor that takes up a bit less than half the 9X7 foot floor space. Another pad/air mattress will fit with a bit of room in between them, but whoever is sleeping on the right side will be partially blocking the zipper for the D-door. So, you cannot fit 2 high air mattresses or cot beds and still have access to the door. You’ll also be touching the tent walls while lying down this way on any pad or mattress higher than about 4-6 inches. A solo camper or a couple could put their *one* larger bed sideways and still fit in the tent, but for a couple, the person sleeping on the back side will likely disturb their partner to get out of tent. For these reasons, for 2 adults the 6-person or larger tent is probably a better option.This handy 106″ X 83″ footprint tarp is the best fit for a ground cloth for the 4-person tent (which should not extend beyond the edges of your tent–a common camper mistake): It even comes in its own stuff sack, which you can stuff into the tent bag.UPDATE: Have now camped out in this tent, and the very first night it rained off and on all night. Not a drop in the tent, though, even with a power cord coming through the zippered access point for it (albeit, with it zipped snugly against the cord, not left wide open). The tent fabric is also so dark that you can hardly see a lamp on inside the tent from outside. The privacy that affords is appreciated.Update #2 (7/2019): Have camped out in this tent several times now and it continues to perform well. It does flex a lot under windy conditions, but it held up fine. Make sure you properly stake out ALL the guy lines. One odd thing we noticed was that the lime-green rainfly seemed to attract a lot of small flying bugs! They just hung out on it, but did not get into tent, so no big deal.

    It has been 3 years since I bought this tent. We have camped a few times and never had any trouble with it and have been perfectly happy with it.But, the reality was that it hadn’t been put to the test yet. I couldn’t give a strong review from only experience under light or moderate conditions.All tents are good when it is relatively dry with little wind, etc. But, now I can verify that this is one tough tent! I don’t give out praise lightly.My son and I camped on the shore of a rather large lake in mid-late August, 20-22.The first night about 9:30 the thunder started and the wind picked up. We moved our game and food into the tent. I knew strong thunderstorms were expected in the area. I was hoping they would glance or miss us as summer storms sometimes do. Nope. The whole time we were lying on our sleeping bags playing Yahtzee, the storm’s intensity grew quickly. We kept looking at each other as crashes of lightning hit close and the wind was straining the tent around us. The whole time as the father I was working out the best contingency plans if the worst happened. I was sure it would.Mind you, we were on the east end of the lake. Our weather comes from the west. This lake is tucked between some pretty tall hills. So the wind is funneled. Sideways rain was driven by constant winds between 20-30 mph and gusts to about 35-45 mph. This lasted about 1/2 hour-hour. What’s more our door, which doesn’t have the direct rain fly cover, was facing the lake (for the view).When the storm ( that wasn’t the end of the harsh weather, just the wind) passed, there was a slight seepage on the windward facing door wall to be dabbed up with a towel. The tent was entirely intact.To add, somewhere about 3 AM there was a torrential downpour that lasted at least a half hour, up to 1 1/2 hour. Not a drop inside.Folks, this was the kind of storm that all the locals were talking about and asking each other how much property damage they had incurred, when we went into town to have breakfast because the fire pit and all the wood was drenched.Now, I can honestly write a good review. The darkening features; compactness to small size when packed and ease of set up are great. But that tent will hold up in very tough storm conditions. You can hike out with confidence when you don’t have a retreat option readily available. (I wilderness hike too)

    Bought this for a trip up to Vancouver Island and was not disappointed. Setup was very simple, as was take-down and packing up. “Darkroom” fabric worked pretty well, we were definitely able to sleep later in the morning. Tent size was nice and roomy for 2 people car camping. Only two small storage pockets so don’t count on much storage.Build quality seems to be ok but I did notice a few small defects, and the poles don’t seem all that strong. Hence taking a star off my review.Big caveat: We’ve only used this tent in good weather, so I have no idea how it holds up in heavy rain. I’ll update my review if needed. So far, a good value for just over 100 bucks!

    Ideal para familias.Tuve un inconveniente al principio ya que me mandaron otro modeló (error del centro de distribución) pero fue reemplazado.Armada queda genial, con espacio suficiente para un adulto alto ya que mido 1.90, añado que el toldo bajo la luz solar genera un efecto sparkle que encanto a los niños.

    Buen producto para campamentosEs una casa de campaña que he usado durante los últimos 3 años, la he utilizado principalmente en playa y en lugares con humedad, es bastante amplia y sin problemas caben las 4 personas, 3 cómodamente dejando un espacio para colocar mochilas, es de buena altura, para una persona que mide 1.75 m tienes que agacharte un poco para estar parado dentro.Tiene dos bolsas de maya en los extremos para poner artículos pequeños como celulares o carteras, en la parte media se puede colgar una lampara o algo no muy pesado.A comparación de otras casas de campaña que he tenido es más oscura bloqueando la luz del sol, no al 100% pero sirve para levantarse hasta tarde, de igual manera al tener ventanas ayuda a mantener fresco.Durante mis acampadas no he estado expuesto a mucha lluvia sin embargo siempre es recomendable que cuando se espere lluvia de alta intensidad poner una lona o platico encima, una lluvia ligera y de poca duración la aguantara sin problemasFácil de guardar y armar, al menos la de 4 personas no es para andar cargando durante mucho tiempo.
