I really like it!!
Review by David
I purchased this tent and the green version french tent they sell for the same price (don't remember the exact name, but same style tent).

They both appeared to be brand new and of quality construction. The green version was quite a bit heavier and would be more suited for car camping.

This one was lighter and was approaching backpacking territory. They both come with stakes which seem pretty heavy duty and are therefore heavy in weight. There are many lighter options out there. I removed the stakes (assuming I will use lighter weight ones I have) and weighted the tent and poles. It came in at about 4.5 pounds. Still pretty heavy in the lightweight backpacking community, but when you consider this is two person, easy to set up, inexpensive and probably more rugged than stuff bought in the store, I say go for it.

I really like. Is it waterproof. I can't say yes from experience, but the material it. I would trust it in moderate rain.

So far so good
Review by Tom
Got this tent awhile ago ,first time able to set it up.Set up just like any other pup tent.Roomy inside,big enough for two with no gear.For one ,more than enough room.Will fit a low cot and your gear with no problem.No rain fly but you could put a trap over it.The condition is like brand new.

Quality And A Great Value
Review by Eddie
Five Stars and well earned! This is the second one we purchased the first being adopted by my grandson. It appears to have been used very little no issues at all with either one and we're thinking of buying a couple more for just in case situations. If you're looking for a good quality warm weather tent you can't go wrong with one of these.

No leaks
Review by Roger
I was worried since no rain fly but it didn't leak. It didn't even come up through the floor. It is really light for back packing.

good tent
Review by Lee
I ordered this tent expecting a good used surplus tent.
When the package arrived I opened it up and removed it.
The bag that it came in was dirty and torn, I thought oh I hope the
tent doesn't look like this.
Took the tent out and it looks like it has never been used. Much to my relief.
Havent set it up yet but plan on doing so this weekend
Thanks again KS for great Europeon surplus.
