The positives. Crazy easy to set up. Literally throw it in the air, and it comes down set up. We don't require these for our Cub Scouts, but I believe all of our cubs had them this year. Mothers (or fathers) can stick around to help set up the kids tents, and once the parents saw those going up, hanging a bug net over a cot with zip ties was painful. Made setting up camp really fast and easy. When we move for our "pack out" night (where we sleep in a different location) just pick up the two ends, leave the sleeping bag inside, and walk it to the new spot. Set it down and it is set up for the night. Those few kids that didn't were struggling (with adult help) to get their bug nets strung up in the new location. These are also very durable. 7-11 year old kids are not very gentle on equipment, I have not seen a broken zipper, ripped net, or any problems. When we did break camp at the end of the week, the adults did help the kids fold these up (it is tricky first 2-3 times), but held up extremely well.
The negatives, not enough to even take away a star. They are larger then a cot at Cub Scout camp. This made me a little nervous first night. If I roll, I will still be in this thing, but will roll right off of the cot. They are also just a few inches too tall to fit in a standard boy Scout issue two person platform tent on top of a cot. They fit, but work better if you slide the cot in toward the center of the tent, still touches the top of the tent and kind of squishes down a bit. To solve this, after the first night, I took out the cot and put this onto the tent floor (with a canvas tarp under and a moving quilt inside of it, it was hard but no worse than a canvas cot and no worry about rolling off.
I also wish the poles were a tiny bit stronger. It was really hot when I was at camp, so I brought a hanging camping fan (Coleman, I think). Has 4 D size batteries, so it is heavy. There was a hook above my head when I could clip the fan, have it blow on my face all night long (and drown out the sound of mosquitoes trying to get inside the net). The fan was just heavy enough to pull the poles down to within 3-4 inches of my face. Fan still felt great, but after that night I did rig a rope up to the top of the tent to hold that up higher.
But these negatives are minor. Certainly a wonderful product, fully deserving of 5 stars. Will buy a third tonight, don't see my wife joining us at Cub Scout camp in the next few years, so this should do it.
1) yes it certainly POPS UP easily. A bit too sudden since there are all kinds of warnings about making sure your limbs are safe when it's ready to pop. This is a justified disclaimer. You can lose an eyeball if standing a bit close to the action....To repackage it is not too difficult but I couldn't get over the fear that I would break the poles. Many warnings about that are given too.
2) the packaged item is big. I'm not sure if it fits in the overhead compartment of the plane, but it's very big. There is a way to fold it to a smaller size, but just as they tell you it's possible, they also tell you that you run the risk of breaking the poles. And again, I did it, and it wasn't difficult to do but to do so is at the risk of losing an eyeball if you lose the grip and it flips into you unexpectedly, or of snapping the poles due to the extra tension. And in the end, even that size is too big.
When I travel I go light and carry on all I need. Taking this means no other carry on is possible. And you can't pack it once it's small enough to fit in your luggage cause any pressure will snap the poles....
That being said, it is s pretty neat and snug tent thing that offers some great protection even from bed bugs Id imagine. If you can get over the potentially snappy poles and awkward round big size.
