WeatherTec system – patented welded floors and inverted seams. The 6 is a freestanding tent in the true sense. This implies that you will not depend on the terrain and you can pitch it anywhere, on sand, concrete, grass, rock. But to have its vent fully functional, you will have to stake it out so that the air can flow freely.
The coleman ice chest would have been a GREAT option for a trip I recently took. I needed a tent that was going to be comfortable for a weekend car camping trip. My backpacking tent is great, but a little on the small side for casual weekend camping trips. Even for more seasoned campers, perhaps looking for a second versatile tent for storage space, this Coleman offers amazing value to meet their needs. Sundome® 3-Person Camping Tent – Spruce GreenMeet the Sundome® tents designed to make your next camping trip even better than before. Tent campers should always perform due diligence to verify any important features before purchasing a tent.
Although the seams may lack sealing of any kind, the stitching itself is free of defects and looks neat in general. First, the zippers used on both the door and back vent feel especially cheap, often snagging while in use. Second, we’re not a fan of fiberglass tent poles—we find aluminum to be sturdier and less prone to splintering.
Another Kelty tent to have on your radar is their Tallboy 6. However, the Tallboy boasts considerably less floor area at 86 square feet, and its rainfly only offers partial coverage . The Kelty uses slightly higher-quality materials than the Sundome, but we find it hard to justify spending more for less space and similar overall performance.
The compact dome shape stands up to wind, and you’ll get extra weather protection from a door awning and an included rainfly. Inside, there’s enough room to stretch out on a queen-sized airbed, and storage pockets help to keep small items organized. When it’s time to head home, the tent easily packs up into an expandable carry bag with a rip strip until you’re off on your next adventure.
