We bought this tent to take my son on his first camping trip (for his 5th birthday). We decided to go with a larger tent even though we are a family of three, because we took our 2 dogs. We fit me and my husbands queen blow up mattress, our sons twin blow up mattress and our dogs den (cage) which is quite huge (fits our Boxer and our Jack Russel)!!!!! And we still had a lot of room to spare. I would highly recommend this tent to anyone! I shopped around for a month looking at reviews and prices, and am very happy we chose this tent. I must note though that it did take my husband 2 hours to put up. I don't think it will take that long the next time we go, I'm pretty sure it was just because we haven't went camping in a while and it was a brand new tent!!! The screened in porch area is bigger then what I though it was going to be. It doesn't have a bottom (which I liked), but it also didn't connect to the tent... so bugs are free to wonder in and out. However, a little bit of Velcro would probably do the trick!!! [...]I am OVERLY happy with this product!!!

      Comments about GigaTent Mt. Kinsman 8-Person Tent:

      A lot of reviewers said it took a long time to set up. However I had it up in about 20 min in a dry run in my backyard. I have set up similar tents before so that may have contributed. The center room was comfortable to stand up in. The side ones are a little smaller but I plan on using these for the kids anyway. It seemed secure and sturdy once everything was staked down. I had hoped the screened porch had had a floor. I left the tent up overnight and the screen was full of bugs by morning so i am not sure what its purpose is. Seems kind of pointless that is why it lost one star. This would be a good tent for car camping. With my wife and I in the middle, our two boys in one side and our two girls in the other we all have plenty of room. You could probably get a better tent for a little more. Overall, I would say it is a good value tent for the price.

      Comments about GigaTent Mt. Kinsman 8-Person Tent:

      Once you figure out the setup it is fairly easy to repeat. Unfortunately the bag it comes in has a pretty flimsy zipper so be careful when you go to put the tent and fly back into it. The tent worked really well once I purchased some heavy duty stakes. Of course, I was in a hard ground and heavy wind environment... The space is great and we were all comfortable. Overall I think the pros far outweigh the cons. I recommend this tent for anyone that likes the comfort of space.

      Comments about GigaTent Mt. Kinsman 8-Person Tent:

      Easy to set up, but the side rooms were not as big as I thought. The middle, main room is just a little bigger that a queen size air mattress. That's what we used and had just about a foot of space to walk around the mattress. We did like the height. My husband is 6'3" and had plenty of head room when standing up. Also, the screened in porch and the fly is 1 piece. I do not regret buying this.

      Ounce up, it's very sturdy. Came down with ease and will go up much quicker on the next set up. Never rained so I am not sure how it will do but it seems as if it would be water tight and has a 2" trayed style floor to keep water out. Lots of windows make for plenty of ventalation. Plenty of head room as I am 6'4" tall. Rooms on ends are smaller than anticipated.

            This product is wonderful. It is very sturdy, spacious and extremely easy to set up. I set it up and took it down all by myself in about 30 min. 2 people setting it up you could easily cut that time in half. It has excellent ventilation, and I love that it has 3 exits, the two side rooms, and the middle main room. It held up perfectly in the Mojave deserts heavy wind. I haven't used it in the rain yet, so I cannot judge if it is waterproof, but at around $250.00, this tent was absolutely perfect.

              WE haven't actually used the tent yet, but we set it up in our yard to test it out. It was much easier to set up than we were expecting for a tent this size. We have 2 adults and 2 children and this tent will offer us plenty of room for sleeping and getting dressed. I think we're really going to like it.
