Fiberglass poles make it heavy at 4.4 lbs, and no vestibule that I can see. It's biggest advantage will be its small packed size. Can't argue with the price however. That's a full coverage rainfly. Not one of those absurd nylon 'caps' you see on most sub-$30 tents.

People are going to harsh all over this because of the weight. But this is $15, honest to gosh double walled tent that actually has a thoughtful, functional design. Seems like a solid deal for canoe or kayak camping or any application where you don't have a lot of money, truly need a one person tent and won't have to carry it too far.
Are you really comparing a $300 tent to a $15 one? Confused

In the slightly more category, there's the ALPS Lynx 1: 3 lbs 15 oz at $80 bucks. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...PDKIKX0DER

I know it seems like a lot more for only about a 9 ounce weight savings, but the addition of a vestibule offers a lot more usability (your gear can stay dry outside of the tent. leaving the available floor space for just you and your bedding). Plus, I'd expect the rainfly and floor of the ALPS to have thicker polyurethane coating (i.e waterproofness), which is weight well spent.

Moving up the price ladder is the REI Quarter Dome 1, near the top of most peoples lists of great solo backpacking tents. 2 lbs 10 oz, and $229, many people consider this to be pretty much the sweet spot on the price/weight/quality continuum. https://www.rei.com/product/86242...ome-1-tent

If money's no object, there's the Big Agnes Copper Spur, just a hair over 2 lbs and $380. https://www.backcountryedge.com/big-agnes-copper-spur-ul-1-2014.html?gclid=CjwKEAjw8da8BRDssvyH8uPEg... [backcountryedge.com]

The reason why I thumbed up this deal is because while the Ozark Trails is HEAVY for a solo tent and can't hold a candle to even the ALPS quality-wise, we are talking about 15 bucks here. Materials and QC probably aren't that hot, but I admire that this is a sensible design with a full coverage rainfly. That alone puts it head and shoulders over most of the $20 toy tents that show up as "deals" here on SD.

HTH.

Foot comparison, what do 1) slightly more, 2) moderate, and 3) expensive (1 or 2 person) tents weigh?

sub 3 lbs for 2 person. sub 2 lbs for 1 person... but that depends on how little space you can tolerate.

I got a SOLONG 6 from http://www.lightheartgear.com/ind...ong6-tents

It was about 7% off with a coupon somewhere. I chose it because it weighs 1 lb 14.6 oz since I use it with trekking poles and has MUCH more space than this one.

At $15 I would get this as a spare tent or for a teen when car camping or for the back yard. Then test the tent to make sure it stays dry and use it when you have another safe space that'd do in a pinch for emergencies (you should do this anyway with any tent).

I did. Talking about a $300 tent is 100% irrelevant to a $15 tent. I was going to lease a Honda, but decided to lease a Ferrari instead. shake head

There's a review of this tent on YouTube. Seems like there are some issues.

bought this tent back in December for kids to use on camping trips so they could have their own. very impressed with it and I've used it as a single person tent on an overnight outing by myself. have no issues with it and it is a quick and easy setup that one person can do. weight is NOT an issue in my books, but I'm sure that if I had to pack it for a long time it may get heavy. no leaking water and I didn't even have to seal it like I have most tents when I got them. i paid $24 in December so a steal at this price.

How does this compare to the $15 tent from Amazon for one person?

The Happy Camper seems to be lighter...
