    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.

    Love this little tent! Quality at a great price. Great customer service!

    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.

    I purchased the Trekker 1A tent as a lighter tent for backpacking and it is, even with the stakes! It appears to be very well made and I love the design which is what sold me on it. The only drawback so far is after sleeping in 40° weather I woke up to extreme condensation! So before I use it again I will try and use a waterproofing spray to lessen condensation as recommended in the instructions!

  7. Albert McLeod

    So i got this for a review i find that the tent holds its own very well had it in a rain storm and wind storm and it did great no leaks or anything the only thing is the condensation build up during the night there was quit a bit maybe a few other vents in the bottom area maybe but you get some condensation in single walled tents but there was a lot when i woke up the next morning other than that its a great tent love it

    This is an amazing little tent! Perfect for my multi-day trip into the North Cascades! So glad I stumbled on River Country Products. Keep in mind, this particular tent does not have a lot of head-space, but it was perfect for what I needed. The tent quality is the same as what I have come to expect from the bigger or more well known brands. Highly recommend this tent if you are looking for a light weight, well built tent

  9. Jeremy Stafford

    Haven’t had a chance to test real well but it seems like a great product already, really like how small it packs down.

  10. David hopper

    I answered a cautious “YES” regarding waterproofness because hasn’t been rained on or sprayed with hose. After set-up I did my standard soak all seams in silicone treatment though. Received tent a couple of weeks back but due to workload I am just now getting around to looking at it.
    Did my initial setup here behind house and went up super easy.
    Since am not really a hiker but a spur of moment camper/hunter/fisherman- I like compact tents to throw in truck and leave there so that am ready at moments notice. Since am not a hiker I built my own collapsing custom fit poles from 11mm tent pole repair kits. And as I setup I replaced the day-glow orange cordage with heavier camo paracord that glow in dark. Love that stuff!
    Am only 5-4 & 175 lbs so I have room inside for me and some gear. Would like to see a second storage pocket near door. Would think it will have adequate ventilation in “porch” mode and with a fire out front should be warm in colder temps. Can’t wait to get into the woods

  11. Jason Fletcher

    Really like this tent! I’m 6’2″ tall and it’s plenty long with additional space for gear. It is small and relatively lightweight and would work well for a backpacking tent.

    I personally used it for a DIY Roof Top Tent that I made because of the a-frame shape and the side entry. For the price, it works great and is the center of my design. The quality seems to be really high and the vented windows on the ends are nice to help with condensation.

    Overall, I really like the tent!

  12. Christian

    This is a great solo tent for beginners!
    It is ultralight at a affordable cost! I really enjoy this tent on weekends in the woods. Overall good for the price and doesn’t take up much space in the pack.
