this tent went up very easily and came down easily. I took my 82 year old mother camping, and she is not able to help much with the tent. I was able to set up and take this tent down without a problem basically by myself. the floor is very thick and the walls are also good thickness. I was concerned with the lack of a back wall window, but it actually seemed to channel air through the whole tent by having the door and two side windows open. I was very impressed and happy with my new tent.

Back from our first camping trip with this tent. Sturdy, very easy to setup and take down. I did it as a one person job, though two would be ideal. Getting the canvas top over it though was hard for one person. I can say enough about how well I liked the tent. The material seems much thicker than most of the tents I looked at (and I looked at a LOT of tents). The tent was easy enough to take out of its bags and easy enough to figure out that I got it back into the bag easily as well. I expect to have this for a good number of years to come.

This is a great tent it goes up fast and comes down just as fast. I took it out in the cold and it rained all night. The tent fabric held all the heat from the heater in the tent way better then the nylon tents I've used in the past. The only issue I had was I didn't stretch the floor out when I set the tent up so there was some sag in the bottom that slowly let water in. After raining hard all night I probably had 3 tablespoons of water in the tent which wasn't bad. I would suggest stretching the floor out and spraying the bottom seam with seam sealer on the outside. Overall this tent went up fast held out pouring rain all night and kept me warm inside. I would def recommend this tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by XCbiker Fast and Easy to set up
I bought this tent last Spring. As a new tent camper, I could not have been happier with the ease of set up and take down. I was even able to put it up by myself. I bought the 6 person, even though it was just 3 of us. There was plenty of room for us and our stuff. Was a bit expensive but the quality is there and I hope to use and enjoy it for several years, worth the money.

This tent is awesome! Heavier than our old tent, but sets up so much quicker and easier. Comes down easier too. I looked at this tent on line for a long time because of the price. But it was well worth it. I am 58 and can set this up in 10 min. max, by myself. (My husband takes advantage of that) Highly recommend this one.

We got this tent to replace a damaged 6 person dome tent. This tent does indeed set up quickly. Stake it out, stand it up, and put on the rain fly. About 10 minutes. The tent had no problems on a windy weekend. The tent appears to be aimed as a lightweight version of a canvas tent. The walls and floor are much heavier material than a standard nylon tent making both more durable and warmer for colder weather. It has two small floor level stash pockets and Velcro loops in the ceiling for your own stash bags.
Now for the downsides. Like a canvas tent you cannot just pick it up and move it by yourself, it will collapse, but that is no big deal. What is driving us crazy is that the only way to open the windows is to go outside and roll them up. So for warm weather camping you NEED the windows open, but if it rains... go outside and close them until it stops raining and repeat until dry weather arrives.
Overall a very unique and solid tent especially if cold weather and ease of use is high on your list. I have to admit that having the poles permanently attached is pretty great. However for warm weather camping I think we are going to try something on the lighter side. Maybe the Eureka 6 person tent. It looks to have better ventilation. I am very glad that LL Bean allows their customers to make exchanges and find the ideal piece of equipment!
