Any tent without a rainfly will eventually allow you to get wet.


If you want a car camping tent that will protect you more and last longer, but easy to set-up...and it's only $35 at walmart.

Nice deal, but you might want to read the Amazon reviews on the 4 and 6 person tents [amazon.com]. The 3 person has better reviews, but there are lots of 1 and 2 star reviews due to issues people have. That must be why these tents are on special.

In contrast, the normal Sundome tents that are around $40 to $50 for the 4 person [amazon.com] has more than 2000 4 to 5 star reviews.

Somehow have problem to add to cart, anyone in the same boat?

Update: use the link OP provided, I have problem to add to cart. But I searched it on Dick's website and added it then no issue. Strange.

never buy an instant tent. the poles are attached to the tent, when they break (and they will) the entire tent goes into the garbage since you can not replace the poles.

also the "instant" slogan is BS since the bulk of tent set up is in the site prep. the time savings of installing shock poles with a traditional 6 person tent vs this instant tent is less than 5 minutes time savings.

Amazon reviews are pretty low with photos of leaking and things.

But pretty good discount.

Mostly agree. I tried one of the instant tents a few years ago, and it was significantly heavier and bulkier than the non-instant variety, and took longer to get it all folded back and into the bag compared to a regular tent.

When getting a regular tent, I found some design aspects make them easier/faster to setup than others. For example, I have a tent which uses a lot of long sleeves, and you have to thread the shock-corded poles into and out of the sleeves. And I have another tent that uses mostly clips that attach to the poles. The latter is easier/faster to setup and take down. I try to look for those sort of design features when buying a tent.

Edit: The instant tents in this deal seem a different design than the earlier one I tried, and might be better/faster for setup/takedown.
