    How can I rate a tent that I haven’t even slept in? Easy. At 51 years old I am still a Boy Scout through and through and an avid camper for years. We know good stuff when its basic: good sleeping bags, boots tents and traditional old school gear. I am not your guy for the latest in breathable or special materials or fueled stoves, but this tent- I got it.

    I took my time setting this up because its fun to set up such a traditional style tent! In the days of dome tents and all of the various styles, shapes and colors its refreshing to set up a no nonsense well made pup tent that has a floor sewn in it and high to the sides. It also has TWO entrances/exits! How cool is that? It took me about 30 minutes but I was playing and taking my time with the guy lines, changing out the stakes, and such. The enclosed stakes are the heaviest stakes I have ever felt. They are well made and certainly weigh more than the rest of the tent. There should be no reason why after the first time (fun factor) or for a mission driven first attempt that 5 to 10 minutes is would be more than enough time.

    When I crawled in and laid down I smiled like a 14 year old boy in the woods and was blown away with the optional long vents on both of the long sides. They can be velcroed shut as well!! There are also screen vents at the peaks at both ends. The stitching is tough, the design thought out and modified from a tried and true design. As a 240 pound guy this tent is great for me and yes, if I had to I could share. The zippers are smooth and allow each side of both doors to flap back and even tie back! You can tunnel this whole tent for airing out or ventilation any time with ease.

    Now, again how can I rate this a 5 star without even knowing if it is waterproof? Easy as well. Nowadays there are wonderful no nonsense easily applied waterproofing products all over the place. They can solve the problem of an leaky tent. I did hit the corners of the floors/sides where there is abundant stitching just because I can. While I was spraying I used up the rest of the Kiwi can of silicone because of the FUN of having a great vintage style tent that is very high quality. Told my wife that tonight I am sleeping outside on the ground here in Rochester NY and it will be the first time in years. Our family camping has been in a pop up due to her mobility issues. You dont have to read another review, but you will anyway! These sell out fast so dont dilly dally about it.

    Yeah, great tent.
