Green Thumbs Up Logo

Summary: Favorable Reviews

The Instructions are pretty clear, and I didn't have any problem with them. The waterproof capability of it is true. I was able to see how it will go, and it kept me dry during my camping days.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

It would be better if the poles were made of fiberglass instead o aluminum to save on weight, but that's my personal preference. The two vents at the side of the tent can't be closed, so you need to find ways to cover them if it gets cold.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Morada 4 has two windows and two doors and a peak center height of 4' 7, which is a tiny bit smaller than the average height of the 134 various 4 person tents we have examined With 64 square feet of room inside, it is a tiny bit smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it could be a little tight for you and, up to three other campers during the whole of the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one are an ideal choice for campers that enjoy spending heaps of time outside the tent exploring.

A few of the great points about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances light, making them easy to carry around. In nearly all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In good weather, you could do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is recommended.

Dome tents are easily the most common of all the other types of tents you will see when camping. They tend to do better in storms than other types, allowing rain to easily slide off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat tops, resulting in the water pooling on the top. The most straightforward dome tent should have a rectangular floor, slanted sides two or more poles which cross in the middle of the roof. Due to the way they are made, it is typically considered that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Underneath you can see an account of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Morada can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not need to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibules. Having two vestibules. Gives you somewhere to store shoes and other things that can get dirty, muddy, this is a big plus.
  3. Has Gear Loft. It is nice to see Alps Mountaineering adding a gear loft in the interior to store some of your things.
  4. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is simpler to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  5. More than one window. With 2 windows it is easier to keep the tent ventilated on a hot summers night.
  6. Durable, water-resistant floor. The floor material is 75D 185T poly taffeta, which is a substantially thick and high-strength fabric. Meaning the base is not prone to rips and punctures. Also, the material has a 3000 mm waterproofing rating, which is very good for most circumstances.
  7. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the whole body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1500mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy downpours.
  8. Low price. It is a great purchase for a 4 person dome tent that provides this much room. Not a lot of tents available on the market provide this level of quality for only $213.99 info_outline

CONS

  1. Not spacious. With a floor area of 64 square feet, the Morada 4 is smaller than quite a few of the 134 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Lacking in Headroom. With 9% less headroom than similar sized tents, one can see how this could be a negative thing for some campers.
  3. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately specifically for the Morada 4 footprint Even though the floor may be made of 75D 185T poly taffeta, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  4. A little heavy for backpacking. Even though the Morada 4, looks like a small tent, it is not probably the best choice for backpacking as it weighs 9 pounds. This is quite a lot more than many other backpacking tents
  5. Sloping walls. Even though Dome tents have heaps of attributes to rave about. The sloping sides do tend to make it all the more smaller inside.

Our Ratings: 4.1 STARS

Alps Mountaineering's Morada 4 tent is perfect for bicycle & motorbike camping.

Value for money: In so much as value for your dollar, this tent is a more competitive than the usual price of all the one hundred and fifty-four, four-person tents we have looked at, this itself does not make it remarkable value for money. One should also take a look at other areas in-depth, as we do with every tent.

When we measure the score of a tent, we scrutinize a good deal of areas, looking for things where the tent could perform well against other very similar tents and where it is lacking. In this case, with a total score of 4.1 and the price data above, one can observe that with a ticket price of $213.99 info_outline The Morada 4 is a good purchase and astonishingly competitively priced in comparison with comparable tents.

The overall score shows that the build and capacity the tent provides were not compromised to arrive at a price tag undoubtedly below the average price for comparable tents.

It will make an excellent choice for nearly all people looking for an appropriate three-season dome tent to go camping in, that will serve you well for years to come.
