1、Can’t imagine you’d find anything near this good for the low-budget price. Going to be my next tent now that I know it’s waterproof. Thanks Luke!( –P RO from Youtube )

2、Great tent for the money. If I’m not using my hammock, this is my “go to” tent. Setting it up in porch mode and sitting underneath in a light rain is awesome.( –WoodsWalker 757 from Youtube )

3、I like the design, it reminds me of a smaller version of the old Baker tents and the price seems to be reasonable. Thanks for the review( –mlsknnr from Youtube )

1、This was the review I’ve been waiting for.  My only concern would be that it might get too hot with the stove.  Another great video.  You could sell ice cubes to me on the North Pole.  I got to get one.  Now you know why I stay so poor.( –Billy Harper from Youtube )

2、Love it.. wish they did a “mini” one so it’s smaller to heat… or a bigger one that you can sit in a chair in… this seem to be just in the middle… lol( –rix077 from Youtube )

3、I really like that one !!  That is probably my favorite setup.( –Skills2Survive from Youtube )
