Hon Hon Hon. This cozy, classic-styled, tent is perfect for outings in the woods.

Inspired by the US A-frame pup tent, but made of heavy-duty nylon for better waterproofing than its cotton counterparts as well as reducing weight.

It has an integrated rainfly, tub-style sealed floor to keep you dry, and mesh vents on the top of the doors as well as the interior that can be opened to let out any excess heat in the tent. For the "Khaki" version, a mosquito net is included on both doors.

Additionally, each end of the tent has a double zippered door split down the middle to allow for partial opening. 

Tips and DIY Improvements

  • As with basically any tent, it's recommended that you replace the stakes it comes with and get lightweight stakes to lower the weight a bit. 
  • The two support poles can be ditched in favor of your trusty trekking poles, if you want to cut down the weight and bulk even more.
  • The tent is not 100% Storm-Proof. You might want to get an auxiliary rain tarp for heavy rain. you can also treat the tent with various different agents to make it more waterproof but you still might want another tarp in case of torrential downpour.

Great little tent

Great tent. Set it up just to see it standing so far and it is definitely a one man and some gear tent. Though you could fit a second person in a pinch. Great quality and is in great unissued condition.

Out of the Box it Needs work, but still a good buy!

Fellas, I took this out of the package from the mail and put into my pack for a 3 day adventure ride. Don’t do this, this tent is good for the money but it needs some work.

Pros:

Cheap

French

Long like that French rifle ammo for my tall ass

Cons:

Not the most waterproof, the top vent doesn’t have a flap and it let water in during a Missouri thunderstorm overnight. It also let dew in.

The ropes that cam with it worked well, but with how water logged they got, they should be replaced.

The stakes were only okay.

If you like neat surplus, this tent will get the job done when it’s dry right out of the box.

I would suggest some paracord tie downs, modern stakes, and a hefty waterproofing coating, and a rain fly.

Pity for the French

For a $60 tent is it bad? Not at all, but spending a little extra would be wise. Be sure to be careful what environment you use this in; a dry climate where you know the forecast would be best. I slept in this for a night at 50 degrees, 94% humidity (no bueno), and a 50 degree or so dewpoint, so it was a really damp night for testing to say the least.

Luckily it didn't rain because the seams are not taped and there's pinholes from faulty stitching near the guyline reinforcements - which can be a problem with a groundsheet, but even more so without one. With both flaps open and doors cracked, there was a ton of condensation on the inner walls in the morning, so much so I had to shimmy out to avoid knocking water off the walls and soaking myself further. Plug for the Belgian mummy bag though, that thing was soaked and still kept me perfectly comfortable.

Not a miserable stay by any means, but I can't let it slide - if you took this out where the weather can turn at any moment without doing some extensive waterproofing beforehand, you could be putting yourself in real danger.

This is just to review the as-is condition of my tent without any work - but if you take your time and seal all seams, maybe use a tarp, these tents can be really tough. This is just my experience. Stay safe out there Stalker
