    Truely a Cabin
    I am a very experienced camper and I love this Tent. It is well ventillated, made of quality materials, built with nice features, and Goes up Very easy. The ONLY problem i have with this tent is the lighting system is a great idea but is poorly executed. The attachments for the switch and light immediately boke upon setting up the tent. They continue to hang in place quite nicely and so i'm going to give this 5 Stars. I would not trade this tent for any other tent anywhere near this price range. ... read more Recently we camped in heavy downpoor and the tent performed quite well. Several other campers in our party ended up spending the night in our tent as theirs leaked badly.

    Wanted leak-proof
    Didn't get it. We used our new tent for the first time, and are pleased overall. The windows are great when the sun is out; however, we also endured two nights of deluge-quality rain. The weathertek system didn't deliver on leak-proof, BUT I will admit that our old Coleman cabin tent (retired in good shape after 19 years) would have flooded under the same conditions. The fly did drop to the screen roof and allow leakage, resulting in a few small puddles. Getting in and out the door was a soaking ... read more affair, and I don't think a "porch" tarp would help, since fly would still be dropping water over the door. Also, my wife really liked the light, but didn't care for the fact that the overhead connector broke when taking the tent down.

    good tent, a few minor issues
    This is a decent, entry-level backpacking tent, or general tent for those that like to pack a bit lighter even when not backpacking. Pro: - Fairly lightweight (there are lighter tents, but not by much and not too many for the price) - Very easy setup, only two poles - zippers are ok, typical snags on the rainfly but not the worst I've had - entry from either side - vestibule on both sides - easy to fit back in the included stuff sack Con: - Don't even bother with 2 people unless you bring no ... read more gear in, *and* are very comfortable sleeping up against them. I like it as a 1 person tent though - You won't be able to stand up in it, or even bend over - You *must* stake the tent down on all sides before setting it up. There are only 2 poles, and no connector between them so they only stay upright when the tent is staked down securely - Possibly an issue with pole durability. I had one break on me the 3rd time I took it camping. Could be a fluke, we'll see. Overall, I've been pretty happy with it. I don't regret getting it, and the price is good.

    Excellent biker tent
    Bought this last year and it has been with me on many trips - rain, shine, cold or hot. Packs easily and small, nice aluminum poles, zippers are excellent, and the fly goes all the way to the ground. It doesn't leak, stays warm in the cold, breezy without the fly for summer, and is the perfect size for one person with plenty of room for small gear inside as well.  All in all, this is the best tent I have ever used for bike camping, and I've had everything from coleman to north face. For the ... read more money, the quality of this tent beats them all.

    Timber Creek did it again
    This a great tent, I bought it a year ago and it is truly extraordinary. I have taken it to so many camping trips and slept great, only bad thing about it is when I woke up I was soaked. I truly would recommend this tent

    Flimsy construction
    Very dissappointed in this tent. My first camping trip with it, the rain fly stick snaped in-two and it rained that night. I didn't get wet; but it was 50/50. I would not recommend this if you want more than one or two trips under your belt. As with anything made in China, it's poor quality.

    World class customer service FAST
    We have a brand new Academy store in our town and I went there the first week of it's operation to purchase a tent repair kit for an upcoming camping trip. I needed a tent pole repair piece. Well, it wasn't on the shelf so the sales clerk whipped out his iPhone and I ordered it right then and there, delivered to my home. It arrived within 2 business days. I complain a lot about lousy customer service because it is so prevalent in our world and I place a very high value on the service I provide ... read more others. I have to say that Academy not only rose to the occasion, but by far exceeded my expectations. The hard cold reality of life is that we can't reasonably expect every retailer to have everything in stock the moment we need it. I never expected to not find the product I wanted to buy and then receive the exceptionally high caliber customer service I experienced at Academy. Bravo and a whole host of "thumbs up"! Well done! I hope the fellow who helped me gets a big fat raise because he deserves it!

    Best deal on tent poles
    If on line companies don't think we read reviews, they are nuts. We are the best judges of how are money is spent...on the things we can control anyway. I read the well known shopping site reviews and quickly realized what they were selling was way overpriced and a fellow reviewer said to shop here!!! I had been to all the department stores, camping and sports stores ...they didn't have what I wanted/nor wanted to buy. These poles are just what I wanted. Thank You Academy.

    Works Great
    Just used it for the first time camping over the weekend. I bought four of them for holding up a tarp for shade. We set it up over the picnic table and they did great holding the 10 x 9 ft tarp in 5 to 10 mph winds. I would recommend keeping the last 6 inches in to help keep the pole rigid. Love the option to adjust lenths and I had no issues with the lenth slipping. Solid construction for the use.

    Great tent; marketing is lacking
    Purchased this tent for the expressed purpose of housing two blow up mattresses (each 26" x 78"). From the description, this would be a PERFECT tent for hiking given its dimensions and weight. Okay, so it IS light, but it is NOT a 58" x 82" rectangle. The front is 58" wide and the back is 44" (too narrow for my mattresses). There is an orange sign on the side of the box that I recommend Acacemy add to their photos of this product with acurate dimensions of this tent. Of note: LOVE the view from ... read more within when there is no rain fly! Not a fan of staking down small tents (at least, I like the "free standing" option of some dome tents out there). The rain fly MUST be staked out. The collapsible poles are some of the best I've seen, and the tent itself seems to be made of some pretty hefty material. Even the stakes are beefy! Given the price for such small dimensions, I would expect as much, however. I would love to take this one out, but it must go back to the store.... :(

    Good entry level backpacking tent
    This is one of the better inexpensive options for entry level backpackers. It is not designed for use as a car camping tent with twin sized blow-up mattresses as another reviewer noted. It will fit two 20" or one 20" and one oversized 25" backpacking mattresses well. In this price range, you won't find many options that compare to the Kelty tents in terms of reliability nor will you find many in this weight range that are not glorified bevies.
