Used this for the first time this last weekend as a camping porta-*****. Worked out great - easy to put up and take down, nice and stable too. Plus, it's the only one that was big enough for me (6'8" and 340lbs). Seems very well built, expect it to last for many years of camping and beach trips.
After a few practice tries, I can get it down in a matter of seconds. It folds flat to save space(I actually stow it under the bed in my camper!), has a rain fly for keeping dry on wet mornings, and a hole for a solar shower. I'm not quite sure how I will rig up the shower itself, but I'm thinking that maybe I can put the tent close enough to my camper to leave the solar bag on the roof of the camper or tow vehicle when showering. Plenty of room inside for my Luggable Loo portable toilet. If not, I may invest in a different type of shower system. Either way, I'm anticipating being very pleased with this product!
the materials are quality and durable, it's normal quality tent fabric and the mosquito netting seems sturdy. The zippers are great, many of these tents have weak zippers. This seems like a quality product that is worth the money. It's roomy, I don't think I'd have any problem using the tent for any of its intended uses.
As for being easily foldable, it might be for some. I have watched the video on YouTube hundreds of times and can never get it folded quite as well as it was the first time, however, I am usually able to get it folded enough that I can get it back in the bag. Although, sometimes it just won’t cooperate and those times, I fold it flat, and it fits quite nicely on top of all the other stuff I pack back in my camper at the end of a camping adventure.
The product arrived on time and was exactly what I thought I was ordering. It seems well-made, and if I have any problems with it in the future, I will absolutely update this review.*** this product is easy to fold *** apparently, after reading a lot of reviews about these things, folding them back up is the sticking point, and this product folded easily.
