This past weekend, we were finally able to put the tent up for the first time, before going on a community campout this weekend in our HOA’s backcountry. First, we put down our footprint (heavy duty reversible tarp from Costco) and then pulled out the tent, poles, stakes and rainfly. The instructions were very clear and concise, and are sewn directly into the storage bag so you don’t need to worry about it getting lost. Once we had the tent folded out completely, and all of the poles extended it took my husband and I, about 15 minutes to complete the setup (and we’re novices). The tent when it is complete is 10 x 15 feet, and a center height of 7’ 3’’. My husband is 6’1’’ had PLENTY of headroom all around the tent and not just standing in the middle. He does have to bend down slightly when entering the tent, but he didn’t find that to be an issue. The tent and floor material seem to be high quality and very durable for a $300 tent. It will have to withstand me, my husband, our 5 year-old daughter and 2 Samoyeds ( 45 lbs. and 85 lbs.).

(UPDATED 5/2016) – I just recently used this tent again and still love the functionality and space this tent provides. We now have 2 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs with gear and still have room to stretch. What I really want to add to my review is that on our recent camping trip we were surprised to get pounded by thunderstorms for hours one night. The Big Horn held up to the wind and pouring rain. I did not detect any leakage at all and I didn’t even have the guy lines stakes down. Now that is amazing!!!

lots of room, good quality, very happy

this tent is great. it did take a couple of practice set-ups because we haven’t done much camping and its a very big tent, but once we read the directions and got a feel for it, its nice and sturdy and takes about 15 minutes to set up with two people. we bought this tent despite no reviews because we wanted a screen roof and rain fly, we liked that they specifically listed what materials were used, and the company seems reputable from what we could find out. we considered a coleman instant tent, but if you break a pole on those, you can’t replace it, and we wanted the screen roof/fly option.

Survived a weekend with over 6 inches of rain!

I bought this tent at a local retailer to replace our Coleman Instatent. I planned a weekend of family camping – and this was going to be my husbands first camping trip with me and our toddlers. I normally camp with my mom and sisters, but he decided to join us. The forecast called for severe thunderstorms and rain all weekend, but we were on our way to Wisconsin Dells, the Water Park capital of the world, and were planning to be wet anyway! My Coleman Instatent did not have a rain-fly, so I didn’t think it would have adequate ventilation. I didn’t want to hear my burly, “elk hunting” man whine about it being too hot in the tent with no way to open the windows in the rain. So, I bought this one the day before our trip. Boy am I glad that I did!!!!!! We had thunderstorms and over 6 inches of rain over the three nights that we were there! This Browning Big horn tent had enough space for a queen and two twin air mattresses and LOTS more space for gear. I enjoyed the straight sides on it, so that we could move around more freely, without brushing the sides and getting wet! It also has a room divider and a tent door on each side, which is perfect for going in and out without having to crawl over everyone. This tent was super in the severe weather! We had minimal leaking — the duffle along the wall absorbed some rain, but otherwise, our stuff stayed DRY!!!!! And my happy husband wants to join us again…camping trip = success!

Extremely Satisfied

Purchased this tent as a replacement for our worn out Eureka Copper Canyon 1513. Extremely happy with it. Went camping for a week in Nicolet National Forest in Northern Wisconsin. Had three nights of torrential thunderstorms with one night also having wind gusts in excess of 60 mph. The tent swayed a bit but did not collapse. Checked for damage after the storm and it was perfect. It is better than any tent I have owned in the last 25 years

The reviews were spot on!

Holy buckets! This is the mother of all tents. By far and away the largest one we have ever bought, it was purchased for a long hunting trip with 4 adults using it as shelter. This thing is HUGE and incredibly easy to set up. Two people had it up, on the first time mind you, in less than 10 minutes. Next time, I expect it will take the two of us about 5 minutes because we have already done it once. Strong, stout poles give the structure stability and the zippered wall inside was perfect to give each couple a little privacy. You could live in this thing, without question, at least April-September. The ventilation was superior to other tents, the thickness of the walls and flooring was better than the typical tent, too. I love how the rain fly goes over and ties down, too. Someone really thought this one out before it went to production and it shows.

We thought we would try a bigger tent for car camping and we have not been disappointed. I’m gonna try and be brief but there ..

This is the second tent we have purchased that is manufactured by ALPS. We have the Chaos 3 for backpacking and it has proven itself time and again. We thought we would try a bigger tent for car camping and we have not been disappointed. I’m gonna try and be brief but there is a lot to say about this tent. I list the PROS first: Very roomy, well ventilated, sturdy in the wind if guyed out properly, lots of space for gear. The CONS (to be clear we consider all these items minor in comparison to how well this tent served our needs) : There is very little built in storage space, only six small pockets on either side of the room divider, it can be set up by one person but if you want to start your camping trip with everyone in a good mood its best if two set it up, we did have a pretty severe storm (sleet, rain, 40+mph winds) and the driving rain does come under the fly but most people would have packed it in long before that happened. I highly recommend the footprint or a tarp for under the tent to protect your floor. It is pretty sturdy material but having that extra layer under the floor will really extend the life of this tent. We did have one pole break as a result of the storm and I have a request in to ALPS customer service regarding replacement parts. I will post the results of that when I hear from them. All in all we are pleased with this tent and cant wait to camp in it again!

My family of five took this tent to the NC coast right on the beach. I used PVC pipes for tent stakes and the tent never moved an inch. The size of this thing is great for a large family. I have been in New York hotel room that were not as big as this tent. The zippers are of good sturdy material. After one practice run at setting it up at home; when on site we got it up in 15 mins. You want go wrong with this tent.
