Grabbed the "non backpack?" model. Still a good deal.

Quote from acideye View Post :
the descriptions are formatted very differently, and weight is 5lb vs 6.9lb for some reason... anyways, got the one that was in stock

here's the comparison
http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/Compar...rodCount=2


Durable duffle carry bag for convenient storage and handling

vs

mud mat, gear loft and carry bag.

and

one is labeled as backpacking, the other says backpacking in the description. Pretty weird.

Smaller the tent, the better it will keep the heat (people are closer together). Just something to keep in mind if you camp in 30 degree weather.

I couldn't get the original post link to ship, so I went to the other link and bought 2 with the discount shipped here by Wednesday. I'll take a look at it and see if it's worth keeping, and if not I'll Craigslist it and see if I can make a little on it. Thanks for the heads' up, OP!

That's not a full coverage rainfly. I know to some people this is going to sound like the rantings of a gear snob, but this tent isn't worth the $23 selling price. It's a bargain right up until the moment it rains which, when you think about it, is the real reason we purchase tents in the first place. Low end tents are designed with the assumption that if in the realm of human experience it ever rains at all, such rain will fall straight down and without any wind. Trust me when I say that in real life, moisture has a way of finding it's way into a tent without adequate waterproofing and at the bare minimum, a full coverage rain fly.

I don't want to put a dollar figure on the kind of tent you want to buy, but believe me when I say this product isn't it.
Don't feel defensive, you did right, you are right. I already knew it was going to be crap anyway because it was the Sears store brand tent (i.e generic made in China or thailand crap) so I didn't even look that close, but now that I have, I will back up majorhavoc 100%. Great (well, "possibly acceptable") if your the kind of camper who car camps & would run to the car if it started to rain anyway (or would cancel the trip altogether if it was forcast), but that's about it IMO. And the idea of calling this 7+ lb 2 person tent a "backpacking tent" is a joke. My 4 person tent weighs about the same, and has more headroom & a full rainfly! Of course, it cost about 12x as much, but you get what you pay for (or, if anything, I got the bargain between the two, paying only about $275 in a BF deal with lots of coupons & cashbook figured in)

Very true, I didn't even notice!

Quote from Rawimpact View Post :
I have learned that the tent manufacturer to reality is 2 people to 1. So if it states it sleeps 2, it sleeps one. And you round down.
I still have a old Eureka Timberline 4-person tent that I use with 2 people with plenty of room. Three adults in the BWCA is about it's limit with gear... I did a week in Quetico with three in it, and it was cozy but fine.

For any tent, be sure to look at the "map" or layout diagram of sleeping bags inside the floorplan of the tent. Six-sided tents have more corners to tuck gear in than square or rectangular floorplanned tents.

A truer post may never have been written on SD. However, car-camping tents exist, and I believe this is one of them.

How heavy is this tent? Is it decent for backpacking? The price is great.
My wife and I use this for backwoods hiking and camping and we love it. Just be sure to get some Camp Dry and treat the tent a few days before you first use it. Then it repels water really well.

It covers all the parts that are open? I guess it can still leak, I don't think it will have any issues after you run some seam sealer on it (which you should do on any tent). It could leak through the zipper openings, however those have a flap to cover the zipper which should solve that issue. Rain fly could be bigger, however people have camped (years) in these tens in the past with no issues with rain. Of course the ones that seem to have issues with rain (have issues with most tents) and refuse to use seam sealers.... Spend the <$5 and solve the issue(s) yourself.

That's what a quality sleeping bag is for, one shouldn't rely on a partner for warmth. If someone does, they are not prepared IMO.
