      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Big Easy 6 Tent:

      Bought this to replace an old backpacking tent which was too small for our family. Three weeks in Tetons and Yellowstone gave it a real test: driving rain and wind in the Tetons and a few downpours in Yellowstone. The tent was very impressive in the Tetons wind storm when we received near-50 MPH gusts in a campground. Too loud to sleep but we made it through the night. We also endured some very heavy all-night downpours and this tent was tight as could be--absolutely no leakage. For car camping I want simple set-up, ample room, and absolute weatherproofing. This tent passed with flying colors. And it was at least $100 less than comparable REI tents. This is a great buy. Big and heavy, not a lot of privacy with the fly off, but it's first-rate for its purpose.

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Big Easy 6 Tent:

      This is a big spacious tent that great for the family. Sets up nice and easy. Stayed dry during a rainy weekend.

      The only problem I have with this tent is you cant open the vents in the rainfly from inside the tent like I could in my old tent. To open them from the outside you have to be 6'6" or step on a cooler as I'm only 5'10"

        So far have only used it for our big young family in the backyard for camping training. The kids love it and I like being able to walk in instead of crawling. It's big.
