Cottonwood 6 Tent
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Really good tent, full coverage rain fly has flaps that allow you to have open or closed windows on three sides the door takes care of the forth side . Privacy mesh in tent you can see out from outside not so much
Tent very tall no crawling around walk in and out like a grownup.
Vestibule very large easily set to chairs in it sou if it rains you have a dry place to sit plus have a chair to sit in and remove your shoes when you go in and out.
No floors in tent vestibules if it rains enough for water to run across ground gear on the ground will get wet!
Thin floor all tents seem to have very thin floors, use your brain and you will have no problems, I weigh 230 lbs plus and have used my Therm-a-Rest lux lite cot with no problems.
Best part big tall tent with aluminum poles easy setup cost less than $150
Pictures taken at BMW MOA rally had some battery powered lights on front of tent , reflective guy lines show up well
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The tent goes up easily. We camped in it this weekend for the first. it POURED rain. The rain fly vestibule does not go all the way to the ground, so water would run down the vestibule wall and pool within. Thus, all gear in there got wet. We tried pulling the rainfly forward to make it touch the ground, but then the back tent stake wouldn't go in.
The WORST was how thin the floor is!! By having a good camping cot (that has only been used 2x), on the floor, it made holes! All we did was crawl in and sleep.
Don't waste your money!! I don't know if I can get mine back....
