TSWA Instant Pop-Up Tent

It is almost fall, which means that it is finally cooling off enough to go camping for many of you. Those of you who aren't as sensitive to the heat and who have been camping all summer will also appreciate this item.

This TSWA  Instant Pop-Up is a great little tent for one ton camping or going to the beach to get out of the sun. It's also good for having when you have kids who like to camp in the backyard. Also, for camping trips where you don't have to walk very far from your vehicle also.

This tent will sleep 3 children or 2 adults comfortably. If you know the third adult really well and don't mind snuggling it will fit 3. It is super easy to pop up and, unlike other pop up items I've tried in the past, is super easy to fold back up. We had two people folding it back, so it may be a little tougher for a single person to do.

What I really like about the tent is that it has two doors and both have mesh screens on them, so you can have a breeze going through your tent during the day. The top is also mesh to give you lots of natural light, but it does come with a topper if you run into some rain.

The material is lightweight and the zippers are alright. They didn't snag and were easy to slide open and closed. There are ties to hold the doors open when you roll them up. There is also a pocket inside for small items like glasses and there is a hook inside to hang a lantern.

I'm really going to enjoy this tent on short camping trips with friends when we park about 1/2 a mile away then walk to the camp site. The bag has straps so you can carry it like a backpack and while other people are struggling to put their pole tents together, I'll be relaxing in the hammock!

It also comes with some little stakes to keep the tent taut and discourage the wind from stealing it. They are not the best quality, but will get the job done. If you find yourself using this a lot it may be a good it's to get some heavier duty ones. 

I wouldn't recommend this to serious hikers and backpackers only because you can't roll it up and fit it in your pack and it is a little heavier than most backpacking tents when every pound counts. When you fold it and put it in the bag it is still a large item and that isn't what your looking for when you go backpacking.
