This review is from: Guide Gear 10×10′ Teepee Tent This Tee-pee worked out perfect for me. I took it out for a week long camping trip and one night it rained enough to where I was hoping this thing would float. Not a drop of water got in (seams are all taped) and I stayed cozy all night. Few things to note, it does take a little longer to set up than the typical pin-and-pole tent, but it’s worth it in the end. This latest model has a fully attached floor (unlike the older model) I give it a 9/10.

This review is from: Guide Gear 10×10′ Teepee Tent Not only does its distinctive design draw favorable attention from other campers, I as an owner get a kick out of it. It is an exceptionally nicely designed tent with attention to details that make it a pleasure to camp in. My tent is an olive green color with a black hood. The tent is divided into 10 panels that give it a substantially circular footprint. The panels are seamed and have an internal waterproofing sealant at the joints. Each of the windows and vents can be closed. The tie-off points for the window shades within the tent are attractively placed. For me, looking up, when in a sleeping bag, at the configuration of panels, windows, and air vents provides a picture that for me is aesthetically attractive. The center tent pole is strong steel and provides a handy grab point when standing and changing clothes. The tent is also sufficiently high that you can have a chair within the tent — convenient for reading, putting on shoes, and so forth. The four plastic windows allow for a ready look at the outside world. Beneath them are airflow vents on the exterior of the tent, which can be slightly enhanced to scoop breezes by leaving one side of the flap zipped to the tent and unzipping the other side of the flap that faces a prevailing wind and tying off its line to one of the existing tent stakes. Though this description is somewhat wordy, creating four such wind scoops becomes intuitively obvious when setting up the tent, provided that the front of the tent faces into the prevailing wind. The proposed rigging requires no added effort since all of the lines are staked out anyway. For warm weather camping, the screened doors at opposite ends provide decent air flow. Notwithstanding the many vents, on warm, bright, sunny days, with little wind the tent can be hot. At night, no problem. The features all combine to produce a very nice camping experience. The tent has 10 pegs that fix the base and attached ground cloth to the ground. To preserve the life of the tent’s ground cloth and to provide some additional cushioning, I lay down an additional 9’x12′ tarp and place the tent on top, folding in tarp edges where required. The tarp also provides a valuable assist when taking down the tent, because it provides a clean surface to work on while carefully folding the tent so that it readily fits into the tent bag – also less crud, which might spoil the tent in the bag. It’s easy to set up. Once the 10 pegs and tarp are in place then the tent is raised by setting the center pole, after which the 10 lines to the tent pegs can be set. The tent panels are not rigid and will flap in the wind, but having 20 pegs supporting the tent tends to distribute wind load over many points. When I purchased the tent, I set it up in the yard prior to an epic downpour and heavy wind. The tent did moderately leak but not so much as to make it difficult to clean up with a sponge and bucket (both of which I find handy to camp with). Since then I have camped in the tent only once when it rained. Prior to that experience, I had sprayed a 10.5 oz. can of “Kiwi Camp Dry Performance Fabric Protector” on the exterior to waterproof the tent. The can covered eight tenths of the tent before running out. In the rain while camping after this treatment, there was only a trivial amount of leakage concentrated beneath the door entries. Since there is not a tent fly (but only a single layer of fabric) it is best not to let items touch the fabric, which cab wick moisture to whatever it touches. For cooler weather camping, the tent completely closes except for the air vent at the peak. I give this tent a rating of 5, not because it is perfect for all users, but because for me it does such an exceptionally nice job with a highly original concept, and because I like it so much. Some may wish for a lighter tent (mine weighs 13 pounds). Others may prefer a slightly heavier weight more water-resistant fabric. As for myself, I feel that an annual application of the Camp Dry treatment will over the years bond me ever closer to this product. Frankly I am happy with it the way it is. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 116 of 126 people found the following review helpful Incredibly HUGE, September 7, 2013 By BiohazardVideo – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Guide Gear 10×10′ Teepee Tent I got this tent yesterday and went stir crazy until I gave in and set it up. It was a bit of a challenge getting the base staked down, but didn’t take too long. When it was up my brother-in-law came out and was blown away at the look and the size of it. I’ll be towing the tent in a trailer behind my bicycle and needed a tent big enough to stow all my gear, trailer and bicycle with plenty of sack space. This tent is spacious to the extreme for my needs. During the night we had a thunderstorm move in. In the high desert when it does rain it seems like it’s trying to make up for the lack of rain in as little time as possible. It was raining so hard it woke me up, that is a feat in and of itself… At first I thought the floor was wet, but it turned out to be the reflection of the slightly shiny floor. It was bone dry and the walls showed absolutely no signs of condensation or moisture. The rain was so hard that a flash flood warning was issued. The seams are well sealed as is the body and floor. The people that said their tents were not waterproofed must have got a bad one, most reviews on other sites state the quality of the tent and rarely complain about waterproofing. Would I recommend this tent? In a heartbeat! It’s huge inside, enough for at least 4 adult cots with gear easily. The lack of attachments for attic space can be remedied by hanging rods off the center pole, when I get mine made I’ll post pics. In a jam, like an emergency you could probably fit 8 adults, but 3-4 comfortably. I’ll update after my 110 mile ride to Rachel Nevada to see Area 51 on the 20th. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
