    I love this little tent! Out of the bag it sets up within just a couple of minutes and if set up correctly it is very sturdy. The fabric is extremely water repellent however I did have to seam seal the vertical seams (which should always be done anyway) and it sheds water perfectly. I love the design and as with all of the River Country Products I have purchased – excellent quality, construction, and value. All of their products are top notch and the customer service is awesome! You can’t go wrong with River Country Products!

    this tent was just what I was looking for…..size—I am 6 ft tall and it has plenty of room to lay down and I can sit up comfortably …..weight—-very light weight even with my walking stick in the bag…..color—-blends well with the surroundings especially after the addition of a light weight camo tarp……set up and take down is very quick and easy …always a good thing …..I am very happy with this tent !

    This tent is definitely a 5 star tent minus its breathability. It’s not the end of the world, and I would certainly recommend it, but it’s something to keep in mind. I’ve used it 5 times in the last month on back country trips.

    Received the tent in less time than I was told, so that was great to start. Just set up the tent to waterproof it and it seems like great material. I’m 6’4″ and I fit in it just fine. Super light for backpacking and the price was killer especially since I already have trekking poles.

    The only suggestion I have is to make the steaks with a flat head so they are easier to push in with the palm, but for the price I really can’t complain. This seems like a great buy!

    Used my new tent last weekend on a backpacking trip with my scout troop. The tent was an easy set up in the dark. I look forward to using it on many more trips to come.
    I would recommend more ventilation and change the stakes so they are easier to put in the ground and take out again.

    Awesome tent, can’t beat it for the price! Only needs seams sealed in a few places and I plan on spraying it with camp dry. GREAT VALUE and outstanding craftsmanship! They are a company that’s doing things right!

    5 stars minus the light stakes the were a challenge in rocky soil but wedged with rocks worked well. Just got back from a 4day 3night backpack in Talladega Nat. forest. Cold & windy the 1st night & cold & raining the 3rd night. Little to no condensation the first 2nights last night I had some which is to be expected on cold Rainey nights, but no leaks,I did seam seal it before we left. I could not have been more pleased its performance in the weather or ease of set up & take down. I am now ordering the Trekker Tent 2.2 for when my wife goes with me. Thanks to everyone at RCP for providing quality affordable gear.

    Received the tent 2 days after ordering, set it up 1st time in less than 3min & sealed the seams for good measure. Just got back from a 3night 4day backpack trip on the Pinhoti trl Talladega Nat Forest. 1st night windy & cold that 3rd night rain & cold. The tent impressed me how took the wind & rain some condensation on the rain night, to be expected. The stakes were a challenge in the rocky soil but wedging with some larger rocks solved that. The ease of set up & take down always had the tent 1st up & 1st packed. It also no sign of leaks after 8rs + of rain. Next I am ordering the Trekker Tent 2.2 to use when my wife goes with me. Thanks to everyone at RCP for providing quality affordable gear.

    Great little tent. Super light and compact. Plenty of room for a cofortable sleep and vestibule is big enough to keep your gear dry as well.

    Really nice tent. I set the tent up it was easy to set up and take down. It folds up and goes back in the sack with no problem at all. I’m 5’9″ and have more than enough room inside. I inspected all stitching before setting it up and it seems to be really well made. Fantastic tent for the price. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    Set a few times now it’s very easy to set up. But you start to learn a couple of tricks. I sprayed it with waterproofing inside and out, I probably didn’t have to but I always feel it’s a good idea. If you leave one of the front flaps open and place a couple stones Under the back wall to help open that Gap condensation is very very minimum. A five by seven footprint covers the sleeping area and creates what I call the front porch to store my gear and a place to take off my shoes. Warning check your shoes before you put your feet in them or you may end up stepping on a garden slug like I did they make a lot of goo yuck LOLOL

    For the money, a very well built tent. I have used a tarp so I had to get used to the confinement and lack of room for “stuff”. Still working on the condensation issue (to be fair I have condensation under tarp and all 4 side are off the ground) but raising the vent side with a piece of wood and not closing the doors seemed to help. I am also wondering if holding the upper vent open with something would help. Set up is as easy as setting up my tarp.
