    i had already purchased the one man “teepee” style tent and couldn’t get over the quality for the price so I ordered this one and two small tarps as well. These are a great B.O.B. type tent, good for UL hiking / camping and preppers. I might just have to get another to keep in my trunk! Can’t beat a product like this at these prices!

    I bought the Trekker Tent IA from River Country products with the view to take it on overnight hikes in the wilderness areas in southwest Virginia. I am very pleased with it and would recommend it to someone who wants a solo tent of this sort. I have slept in it and found it very comfortable for sleeping (I am 6’1”). There is room for my fairly minimalist amount of gear. There is not much head room for sitting up, and clothing changes need to be done lying down if done in the tent. The zippered mesh screen door is great for keeping the bugs out, especially for those of us who like a tent that encloses us in. It is very well made and the design is good for stability. The literature said the poles should be set to 42 inches. The design of the tent seems to call for something closer to 3 feet. Pros: light weight, well designed, well made, good vents, screen zipper door. Cons: not much vertical room. Overall very pleased and strongly recommend for those interested in this style of tent.

    I’ve purchased both the one man and the two man tents. Both are great quality, light, easy to put up, and roomy enough to also store your backpack. I would have given this five stars, but I prefer the door set up of the two man. Having the door on the slant of the roof means you have to set up the flap if there is any rain, mist, or dew – otherwise the door flap has to stay closed. With the two man, the door is on the end and, unless the rain is blowing, you can tie back the flaps and get some air. Also, stakes for the guy lines of the door flap do not come with it – so order two extra – in all likelihood you will have to set up the door flap at some point.

    I purchased the Trekker 1A as a solo backpacking tent. Entry and exit are much easier through the side than a tent with entry at the ends. There is also plenty of space inside & packs down small and light. Ventilation is great! Overall, I think it’s a good tent for those wanting to lighten their load without a lot of cost. However, I would only recommend this as a good weather tent. I treated mine with the recommended spray but it leaked at the ridge where the loops/toggles are for the mesh/door. The seam was taped but still leaked from under the tape. I have seam sealed the ridge & around the floor. It does okay in a drizzle or light rain, but anything more and you will be wet.
