    Great product

    I’ve had it for a few weeks now and everything seems great so far. It has a thick canvas wall and thick flooring. Only thing I would note, that obviously can be found in the product description is that the doorway is not tall enough to walk straight in. Not too big of a deal though, still a 5 star product

    Quality… nice details

    Just lovely. The tent is so well made. I had the same size tent from another company a few years ago. Your fabric is stronger, the zippers don’t catch, the toggles are well placed and the stakes are much more beefy. Great work.

    Amazing!

    I am so happy with this purchase. This tent is simply a work of art. It exceeded my expectations in every way. Its construction is top notch, very high quality and the engineering is so thoughtful. The ability to change the airflow configurations (completely close, screen, completely open) is really convenient and easy to do. This thing is going to last a long time. I've had it setup for over 1 month now in a semi sunny spot and there is no sign of any water leaking or mold growth. I'm very happy with this purchase.
