For starters, it is not really ideal for 6 people as Coleman says. While it is okay to sleep in the screen room, it does not provide adequate protection against the elements, especially rain. Considering only the main tent room, the Carlsbad 6 is best for a maximum of 4 only. Another is that the tent is not built to be tough. The fiberglass poles tend to be fragile; they are in fact unsuitable for windy environments. Moreover, the lack of waterproofing is a further problem. Who would want to sleep in a tent that gets wet?

The Carlsbad 6 might not be the best 6-person tent out there, but it would work out for adventurers who aren’t too particular with the fine details of a tent.
