This is a quality tent for a reasonable price. I own multiple tents in various sizes and shapes, this tent is exactly what you would like to see in a 2 person tent. The seams are taped once, so if you plan on using this tent in the rain it would be beneficial to weatherproof the seams beforehand with a liquid seam sealer (however, it's beneficial to do this to any tent regardless). This tent does come with guylines, and if I might say some of the most useful tensioners I have used, at least in plastic versions. These guyline tensioners won't come loose. Also included are TNH's version of tent pegs, they are aluminum and a huge step up from the cheap round metal pegs most tent's come with that wouldn't hold down a fart in a light breeze. Speaking of a breeze, the foot end of this tent's rainfly is vented in a way that allows you to pull open the vent for more breeze or Velcro it down for less ventilation. Now that's smart. The other thing I like was they included an aluminum splint in the peg bag in case one of the poles were to break it doesn't leave you stranded without a shelter. That sort of thing is almost never included in the base price. So +2 to TNH for including a pole splint and upgraded tent pegs.Now, thing everyone wants to know is why not a 5 star review? Seems like a fantastic tent at under $100 right? Right! It is all you could ask for at the price. Are there other tent's that do some of the extras like double sealing their seams? Sure, but you'll spend twice as much money and seam sealer only costs you $5 at Walmart and an hour of your time. The 1 thing, is that TNH should make an optional footprint for this tent. Some people would like to have this option for say car camping, utilizing the fly/footprint as a lightweight option, the possibilities are endless. I hope in the future this comes.One big Pro I felt should be mentioned: The connectors that are part of the 1 piece pole system appear to be made from some sort of lightweight cast metal. They are not plastic connectors at the top of the Y points. I typically do not like 1 piece pole designs because if the connector breaks the tent is then useless. With no plastic pieces to break easily this will likely lead to a much more durable and long lasting pole design. (Note that this is an observation, I do not know the specific material used here, it is non magnetic, but it does not appear plastic). Keep in mind what I mentioned above, it comes with a splint as well!- Taped seams = Yes, on rainfly and bottom tub, everywhere that would get exposed to rain.- Included guy lines and tensioners = Yes- Included footprint = No- Available footprint = No- Included TNH aluminum tent stakes = Yes- Included pole splint in case of breakage = Yes
I just put up the tent and l am pleased with the quality and ease of setup. I have never had a tent with the interlocking hub system and found it simple to assemble the poles. They practically snap in place , almost by themselves. The material of the tent appears to be made of good quality materials. There was a couple of lose threads but I simply cut those off for a cleaner look. The mesh is good and easy to look out of and does not let the bugs inside the tent. I would like the zippers to be a little more robust but I had no problem unzipping and zipping the tent back up. There are two storage pockets just inside the entrance to the door and two clips that hang from the ceiling of the tent so you can hang a small lantern at night time. The tent comes with nice quality aluminum tent stakes and not the cheap hook style, that I have seen included in previous tents, I have bought. The guy lines are a reflective material and I like that so at night time, I can see them and prevent myself from tripping over my tent and possibly hurting myself.The rainfly is solid and has just enough coverage if you want to leave your boots outside your tent while you sleep. This is listed as a 2 man tent but I would rate it as one man and a small woman tent. I put a large sleeping pad in there at 78 inches long and 25 inches wide so you can get an idea of how wide the tent is. I still had a couple of inches, length wise on each side of my sleeping pad from the front and back of the tent. It would be nice in the future if TNH would have a footprint to buy for this tent. As we all like that little bit of extra protection from the ground to help our tents last longer. I plan to but a small tarp to lay under it for my overnight trips. I also like the fact that the storage bag is not to long, as I can strap it to the back of my pack and not worry about it getting hung up on mesquite bushes and the like in West Texas. For the price and weight of 4.6 pounds this is a solid tent for overnight backpacking and longer treks.
I purchased this tent with average expectations of a good tent that would do the job to keep me dry, somewhat warm, and protected from the elements. The TNH Outdoors 2 person tent has exceeded every expectation I had and has provided such a great value (both price and quality)!The tent itself is reasonably light (without spending $400 on an ultralight backpacking tent) and packs down small for great value on the trail and in the storage closet. The colors, while in reality, a bit darker than the first product photo, are great and provide a trendy color scheme for a stylish and hardcore backpacker.Space wise, the tent is definitely a great pick for a single person tent but would be a bit tight for two full-grown adults - maybe father and son, etc... Fits me and my gear well. This is definitely an industry standard size though and nothing that TNH did wrong.Set-up wise, very easy to set up. I was a little bit confused at first when I read the reviews but once I got it out of the perfectly sized bag, it made complete sense and was super simple to set up. Highly recommend for fair-weather camping to mild weather. Wouldn't withstand winds above 25-35 mph but what tent under $500-$600 would? Great, strong tent overall.Waterproof-wise, this tent is great! The fly works well and the seams are expertly taped which is a huge pro in the rainy part of Oregon where I live.Bottom Line: Amazing tent, would buy again, this is now my #1 tent above REI, Alps, The North Face, and Kelty tents - Love supporting GREAT small businesses with quality gear, environmental awareness, and fantastic customer support.Highly recommend the TNH Outdoors Backpacking Tent!
