Great tent. Just needs better poles.

Also, when packing, fold lengthwise in 1/3rds. Then roll up with the Poles being the center of the roll. Easy to pack once you get the hang of it.

Great tent for what I need it for. Too big for backpacking.

not bad...sufficient space, although you cannot stand up, so if changing can be a challenge. Very easy set up. Cannot review water resistance as it didn't rain....however, the temperature dropped and with the tent itself being only mesh.....I was freezing!!! The vestibule is handy although not large. Seemed to collect a lot of dew, and this would drop on you when opening. Quality of materials seems very good for the price.

My son used this for fall camping and will be using it for mid spring camping. Was easy setup, spacious enough for him and worked great! His camp mates were all impressed with the size and price! He plans on summer camping under the stars too.

Great Tent... But not for backbacking April 12 2012
By BackpackerEd - Published on
Verified Purchase
When I ordered this tent I thought it would be great. A 6' by 8' two person tent labeled as "great for backpacking." Unfortunately some things are too good to be true, so here is a list of pros and cons so you can make an informed decision before purchasing this tent.

1. Lots of space - 6' by 8' design leaves plenty of room for you and storage, and if you are rather tall guy like me then you know what it is like to be cramped in normal tents!
2. View and breathablility - The tent without the rainfly offers some great views and you don't feel like you are in a tent at all as it is almost entirely screened in.
3. Price - This tent is very affordable for 2 person tents and it seems durable and long lasting.

- Unless your idea of backpacking is parking the car and walking 100 yards into the woods then this is not the tent for you. Even with a large backpack you will be devoting almost half of your space to this tent, not to mention the 6-7 pound weight.
- The single pole design is also great but it requires you to use the stakes. In classic two pole tents, you can set up on almost any surface without having to worry about staking the tent to the ground; however, with this tent you must use the stakes to get the full dimensions of the tent. Although I recommend staking any tent, if you are using a tent just for sleeping under normal conditions, anyone can tell you the advantages to not having to worry about stakes on hard surfaces.

2. The rainfly
- Although the tent has some great pros without attaching the rainfly, putting it on can be a bear. Not to mention the fly is almost the same size and weight as the tent itself and it too requires stakes to be effective.

CONCLUSION: Don't purchase this tent with the presumption that you will be able to really backpack with it. The tent is great for a short hike, road trip, or concert but it is not for anyone that plans to go out for more than a day and still have room for any other gear. I would still recommend a classic two pole (although usually smaller size), easy to set up, small tent for any excursions. Besides, what kind of backpacker needs room for a queen size blow-up in his or her tent??? Good luck and I hope this helps

Good Tent for the price July 14 2008
By Victor M. Cardona - Published on
I purchase this tent and used it the next day. The good: Lots of interior room, enough for 2 adults and 2 small backpacks. I was even able to fit a queen size coleman inflatable mattress inside(At home to test it)with room to spare. Very easy to set up, I read the instructions and timed myself, it took me 10 minutes. With screen mesh all around it was very comfortable, even with the Texas summer heat. Comes with a 5 year warranty. The bad: At 6 pounds Is a little on the heavy side for most solo backpackers(I personally don't mind the weight in exchange for all the room). The tent isn't free standing, make sure to get good stakes for hard or rocky ground. It didn't rain when I used it, so I can't comment on how waterproof it is, but I always seal the seams on all my tents as soon as I buy them.

Hooligan 2 Backyard Review July 7 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on
WOW! this tent is amazing. It had enough room to sleep two comfortably. It also had a vestibule for wet shoes or boots and maybe a backpack. Like most places the weather in my back yard was in a dry state so my dad and I tested it with the gardening hose. At first we did the regular rain and it was completely dry except for under the vestibule where the velcro on the door wasn't closed. After that we did the thunderstorm in which he aimed the hose directly at the tent and it still did not leak. After that I spent the night in it. When I woke up the next morning it was completely dry, and there were no dead bugs like in my bad, store brand tent that I had previosly. I would definately give this tent five stars and I would recommend it to friends and campers/backpackers everywhere.

One More 5-Star Review Nov. 6 2009
By T. Sparkman - Published on
One of the first things that struck me when I was considering this tent was the great reviews, and maybe more importantly the absence of any bad ones. Even the good products usually have a least a one or two bad comments, but this tent didn't. So I bought one and now I know why. Right out of the box I could tell by the quality of construction and design that it would be a great tent. Having said that, it doesn't seem really necessary for me to add anything to what others have said about this tent, except to echo their reviews. I love this tent and can't find anything wrong with it other than getting better stakes (I recommend the MSR Groundhog... there a bit pricey but worth the cost). I use the tent for motorcycle camping and can't imagine a better choice. I'm one of those people that likes to spend time in my tent having coffee and reading, especially when the days are short, cold, and rainy, and for just myself the tent feels very roomy and comfortable. I can set up my gear around me within reach... stove, coffee pot, snacks, lantern, etc.... and it's very cozy and "homey". As others have said, it might be a bit heavy for backpacking, but it's perfect for motorcycle camping. I would absolutely recommend this (and have) to others.

Hooligan Tent Meets and Beats Expectations Jan. 10 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Verified Purchase
Here are a couple of quick details about me and what I was looking for with this tent. This is my third tent purchase. (see other reviews on Amazon). I am tall at 6'5" and needed a tent that was long enough for me and had plenty of space for my gear or big enough for myself and my 8yr old...or the dog if he is up to going on a trip. For most, this tent has the room for two adults.

The tent needed to be light enough for hiking. For most people, this tent is too heavy for hiking, but I can handle a little weight so it's not a problem. If trekking out with a partner, split the weight and you will be fine. For car camping or motorsport camping, the size should be great.

I needed a tent with a bath tub bottom and a full rain fly. The Hooligan floor is the same material found in the Sundome line. It's thick, moves up the side by several inches, and is waterproof. It generates the most weight, but it worth the protection from the elements. Plus it has a decent sized vestibule area for boots or packs. The fly is totally taped, but I decided to waterproof it anyway with additional seam seal and proofing spray.

I needed a design that could be setup when on my own. The base stakes down with 4 stakes. The single pole is SOLID. It is at least twice the diameter of the Sundome poles and is designed for strength. Inserting the pole into the pegs may be difficult when the 4 main stakes are not positioned correctly. 2 more stakes to support the pole and you're done in good weather. The rain fly provides even more support. If it's cold or windy, you will definitely want to pack and use the fly. Still, on my own, I setup this tent in less than 10 minutes with the fly on within 5 minutes.

I have wanted this tent for months. When the price dropped to $33, I jumped on it. This is a great tent and worth considerably more than the current price tag. Window and door venting works well. The full fly is awesome. The tub bottom is great.

A couple notes: there is a single pouch on the inside for out of the way storage, but there is not a loop to hang a lantern. I used the zipper loops and it was ok, but I plan on sewing my own loop on at the tent apex before my next outing. 5 stars all around. I will likely buy a second tent to have as a spare or for others to use.
