Some 20 plus years ago we got what we thought was our first "good" tent from my company as a safety award. You know, they send you out a catalog full of really poopy costume jewelry, cheap knock off stereos, speakers, cameras etc,, but there was this, what we thought at the time, this beautiful and well built coleman tent. On our first trip we went up to the Gaspe' peninsula and camped amidst nearly 3 million acres of remote back country. Anyone who has been there knows four things about the Gaspe',, it is a hikers paradise, there are more moose per acre than anywhere in the world, the high plateau is home to a free roaming herd of caribou, and it rains,,,,, every day... Our new tent was a disaster, we were sopping wet constantly, no amount of seam sealer was enough. We put up with that tent for several more years, using tons of sealer and erecting tarps overhead. Finally after several years we decided to plunk down the big bucks, ( to us anyway ) for a Kingdome 6 from REI.. This tent served us well for many years and many trips, until we finally outgrew it. As in, two falls ago we stopped off at Rocky Mountain NP after two weeks in Moab, during which the area had intense rainfall and was evacuated 6 hours after we packed it in. We lived inside the tent for 3 days, venturing out occasionally during the few let ups in precipitation. We decided then and there to start looking for a tent we would be comfortable in during inclement weather such a deluge, or sandstorm. Last weekend we camped in our new Jet Tent 25X by Oztent deep in the woods of Pennsylvania. It poured down rain 3 out the 4 days we camped. Plenty of room for our gear, my two grandson, their dad, and myself.. I'm very impressed with this tent, and will keep this thing forever. With a bit of practice I can now get this thing set up and staked out ( with the help of an 11 year old ) in about 15 minutes. I can pack it in alone in about the same time, including the footprint. Some ask why we, as experienced overlanders, waited so long to get a great tent? I can only answer, I'm basically a cheapskate and at that, I bought a demonstrator model that was 300 dollars off.. I hate paying top dollar for anything !!
