It is 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.
You will have plenty of room to sleep eight people, and this tent comes with all the standard features like storage pockets. There are also numerous doors and windows for ventilation that help with keeping the tent cool. If you love the look of these tents, but need something bigger, or want to stick with something a little more traditional, I encourage you to click on our article about the best family tents!
But if you can think back on days spent camping and realize that all or most of them were in clear, still weather, perhaps storm-ready performance does not have to be your first worry. M2C appears to be aiming the Qubes at recreational car campers and festival campers, so we do imagine it will have an audience of folks who are not worried about having an expedition-level tent built up to survive high-alpine colds and winds.For that type of customer, the Qube has a primary selling point that the average dome in your local camping store does not: its modular, interconnectable design.
The Qube is as easy to pack away as it is to set up so you wont need to be an expert in origami to try and get it back into the bag when youre ready to come home. One of the major issues with standard tents is being woken up by the sun blaring through the tent wall when it comes up at 5 am so with the with Qube tent we have added a black lining to our material to block out the sunlight so you wont be woken by that early morning sun anymore.
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.
we have every type of tent you might be looking for, from single person swags to large family tents, and everything in-between. In addition, you can find gazebos, swags, sunshades and windbreaks, and even toilet and shower tents at Anaconda. Whether you are looking for a lightweight model tent to go hiking with, or a large family tent for an extended holiday, you will be able to find it here.That depends on many factors including the type of holiday you are planning, how many people need to be accommodated, your budget, your preference for either canvas or man-made material, how good you are at putting up tents and whether you will have to transport your tent a long way from the car, as some of them are much heavier than others!
