Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Keep your load limber during long hikes and extended cycling excursions with the Wenzel Ridgeline dome tent. Large enough to sleep three people at once yet compact enough to fit conveniently on a backpack or saddle bags, the tent is ideal for all types of camping and conditions. The Ridgeline includes such features as a Dutch D-style door for easy entry, along with a shock-corded fiberglass frame and pin-and-ring system that for quick and easy setup. Campers will also appreciate the Weather Armor polyester fabric, polyurethane coating, and sonic-sealed tub-style floor, all of which are reliably rugged and resist leaks of all kinds. The window, door, and roof vents, meanwhile, do a nice job of ventilating the tent and controlling morning moisture.

Additional details include double-stitched, lap-felled seams that provide a shingle effect against water; water-repellent threads, zippers, and webbing; a hooked fly that increases weather protection; a gear loft and hanging pockets for easy-access item; and a handy storage duffel. The Ridgeline caries a 10-year limited warranty.

Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all-purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in. If you're a backpacker, alpine climber, or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to buy something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall, and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three-season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are specifically designed for summer backpacking or other activities. Many premium tents will also feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain fly for enhanced waterproofing.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four-season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes and Tunnels
Tents are broadly categorized into two types: freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and tents that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floorplan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being lighter. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

First time I used the tent, it rained a bit. The fly is not big enough to channel the water away from the base of the tent. Actually, rain collects on the fly and then drips onto the bottom corners, causing minor leaks along the stitch lines. The other issue is that one of the tent poles split that first night. Overall not happy with the product, although if you only want to use it as a "back yard sleepover with the kids" tent, it will suffice.

Good basic tent April 20 2010
By L. Hinrichsen - Published on Amazon.com
My family does a lot of camping in a trailer and the kids like to sleep in tents. We've been through a lot of tents over the years, and have chosen progressively smaller tents each time. This tent has everything that's important to me: a strong tub floor, two-pole assembly that the kids can do themselves, low profile so it won't blow over as easily, good zippers, and fits a queen size air mattress that two people can share. I was surprised and pleased by the fly's two mini-poles that fit horizontally over both windows to form little awnings. This tent is not just for the kids, though - I plan on using it myself. I'm happy to have found a good, simple tent that has everything I need.

Couples or childrens tent Oct. 3 2010
By smartydog904 - Published on Amazon.com

This tent is perfect for couples, a snuggle tent with adverage size couples. If your tall skip this tent. I'm 5'6 and most comfortable fit for me and my gear is on the diagonal as to not worry about touching the sides when it rains. Love the design, large screen vents on top, opposite the window & door screens for great cross ventilation on a clear dry night. Door is a good size for entry/exit. Rain fly easy to set up and longer than others at this price. Also an attached small mesh storage bag attached to the back wall to the right of the window as well as an extra loft storage net you can attach or not. Tent went up quickly and came down just as fast. This is a very light weight designed tent, would recommend tent & pole repair kits. Mine arrived with some minor screen damage no big deal. It's kinda a pain in the butt to re pack, but with practice/use it gets easier. Tent stakes are small aluminum pin type, standard. would buy a stronger set for the weekend camper will last longer. The tub floor is a great feature, a small tarp under it and a heavy blanket inside on floor works great to reduce moist/damp feel adds a little comfort as well. Tent is awkward as a backpacking tent at 23"L x 6" H x 6"W, you can repack to a smaller width and put into a compression sack, if you remove & combine poles & stakes in pole bag and keep separate. This tent is perfect for kids, 3 adverage size at max. Would have like to see zipper pulls on inside of tent but at this price you can afford 1 pack at local store. Also a key finder works great to find your tent in the woods after a hike or in the dark. Overall a smart purchase!

update: was able to accommodate the twin size Coleman 4 in 1 air mattress under the rear window. Stretched out, toes touch the sides, but comfortable. There was plenty of gear storage room on door side of tent. actually a lot of room for 1 person. This is actually a quality tent, just need to figure out how to make it work for yourself. compared to other backpack tents this is a little heavier, but much stronger for the price. Still Happy with this purchase!

Survived a Storm May 23 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Bought this tent for my son for Christmas to use on his Boy Scout camp outs (instead of borrowing mine).
We took the tent for a camp out this week-end with me and my 2 sons. The tent held 3 comfortably, though next time, I'll put myself in the middle and the boys can have the sides next to the wall.
On the camp out, we endured a severe thunderstorm with some of the heaviest rains I can remember, high winds, and hail. We sloshed through 3/4 inch of water during the rain, despite being on an incline. We waited out the storm under a pavilion and watched as many people's tents blew down or collapsed under the heavy rain.
This little tent held up perfectly well. After the rain died down, I checked the tent and it was still standing strong and was mostly dry inside. My "mostly dry" I mean that the zipper and possibly the corner seams leaked VERY SLIGHTLY under the torrential rain. My sons and I brought in more water on our clothing than what had leaked in.
Overall, this tent outperformed my expectations.

Update: Survived 2 Storms
My son took this tent on a scouting trip to the beach. The weather did not treat them well as they faced constant heavy rain and 30-50MPH winds. My son said that "the wind turned it into a one-man tent" as he described how the tent was squished down due to the strong winds. The tent sprung back to normal shape as the wind died down, so no damage was done. Most of the other tents were broken or otherwise flattened and filled with water by mid-week when the troop abandoned camp and came home. This tent held up and stayed "mostly" dry. I remain impressed with this tent. It was a good purchase.

Mighty fine tent July 25 2010
By John B. Stark - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Just for me and my back pack, plenty of space inside. I thought it needed more color outside for visability of finding my way back home with a load of firewood or bucket of water in the twilight, but carring bright bandanas for a flag keeps the waspers away from my door. Tent doesn't have much of exterior anchor system in high wind but a little gold nylon rope from the grommets to an anchor worked fine (and I slept like a baby). Good floor, good ventilation BUT BUT BUT it smelled like plastic the first couple of days so let it air out, pack it with some of those silica gel packets, maybe a few squirts of febreeze . . . mighty fine little tent for the price. It packs well just keep your poles outside the pack as to not stress fiberglass.

Item broke on first use, poor customer service July 5 2011
By Nickriel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this tent to go camping primarily around Kansas in the summertime. On my first use, I was impressed. It was easy to set up, I liked the rain fly and door design, and it slept three people easily. The next morning, the wind picked up greatly. In 20-25 mph gusts, one of the two main tentpoles snapped and shattered.

I called to get a replacement, and although I had the model name and dimensions, the rep told me he could not help me without a product ID number located on the inside of the tent.

So I had to dig around inside the tent to find the number and call back. I was then told that the part would not be available until late August, at the tail end of the summer season. He gave me the name of a third-party company that might be able to help me out, but I priced the poles on their site and a replacement would be just $5 short of the cost of a new tent after shipping. Very unimpressed.
