The tents fit on top of our cots and we had plenty of room inside to get changed, keep some books and clothes and our sleeping bags and sleeping mats. The pockets are a great addition that let you keep smaller items such as glasses and flashlights.
Best money I ever spent for camping.
1) Won't fit in a carry-on, even quad-folded. I try to pack lightly on missions (i.e. no checked baggage), but it's either use this as one of your carry-ons (and then have to check a bag to carry belongings), or pack it in a bag too large to carry-on. Some of my team mates had these, too, and used it as one of their carry-ons, and nobody from the airline gave them any trouble at all.
2) No zipper pouch for personal items attached to the inside of the net.
3) Can't remove the green cover.
4) No rain tarp.
5) The zipper on mine sticks from time to time.
1) VERY lightweight
2) Takes NO time to set up or take down.
3) Much more spacious than other individual mosquito nets
4) Much better air flow than other Individual mosquito nets
5) Much less expensive than other individual mosquito nets
6) Water-resistant bottom layer
There were bedbugs where we were staying. Other people were bitten through their nets (other brands). I wasn't. It probably has to do with my net being large enough for me to comfortably sleep without worrying about touching the sides, but I wasn't bitten through the bottom of my net either.
Very happy with this purchase
We were medical volunteers in Africa so we knew that we'd be traveling throughout southern Malawi to visit district hospitals. Some places we stayed had mosquito nets to drape over the bed and some had nothing. More often than not the nets that were draped over the beds had multiple holes in them that made us nervous to use them. The mosquitoes in the area are fairly small so small holes in netting were worrisome. We brought these pop-up nets with us and were very confident in their protection. They were light and fairly easy to pack. The original folded-up shape is about 2 feet across but there is an alternate packing method that reduces that diameter to a little over a foot.
What makes these so great is that they keep the netting from resting on you, which would allow mosquitoes to bite you. All of the nets that drape over the beds sag at the sides so if you sleep with someone else you end up pushed against the netting and find yourself vulnerable to bites.
The problem we had with these is that you can't fit two of these on a double bed. Sometimes we had a double bed and sometimes we had two single beds. If we had two singles then we'd set these up and use them. If we had a double bed we'd have to chance it with the ned net and use tape to patch up the holes and try to find blankets or poles to prevent the net from resting on us as we slept. Another problem, and this could be considered a big one, is that air doesn't circulate through the netting very well. There were very few places in Malawi that had air conditioning so we relied on fans to keep us cool. Once you're in these tents it's very difficult to actually feel the breeze and it can get stifling inside them. If you find this as a problem we'd suggest pointing as many fans as you can at yourself as you sleep to prevent mosquito bites should you choose to sleep without these nets. I didn't mind the heat inside of these since I felt so much more protected against the mosquitoes.
Some tips to help you use these to full effectiveness: Keep them closed until you're ready to get in. That seems obvious but sometimes you get complacent. Be careful of your feet or arms resting against the netting. I'm under 6 feet tall so someone taller than that may be a little cramped. You also lose some height due to a pillow but if you just tape a sheet, pillow case, plastic, or paper outside of the area where you'd rest your head then you don't have to worry about getting bitten through the net.
