Fast pitch system with pre attached poles and quick setting feet
People who used the tent said that: the color-coded poles make assembly easier. Good water repellency with the rainfly on. Holds up well during rainstorms. Has room inside for a queen-sized mattress. Ideal for a family of 4, plus gear.
Campers who bought the tent, said that: It is not very fast to pitch as advertised. Complicated and takes a bit of time to set up. It has to be staked down to be stable enough for use. Also, the corner tabs can tear off easily.
The Echo Lake 6 Fast Pitch with Cabinet has two windows and one door and a peak center height of 6' 4, which is a little bit smaller than the average height of the 117 different 6 person tents we have studied. With 84 square feet of room inside, it is a lot smaller than some other 6-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, up to five other campers throughout the 3-seasons, this tent is suggested for use in, smaller tents like this one can make an awesome choice for people who prefer spending loads of time outside their tent getting some air.
A nice thing about cabin tents is, that the sides are basically vertical making for a sizeable interior, this gives you much more headroom at the sides inside, making it feel much larger than other types of tents, also, they tend to have wider floor areas, so they are great for families. Normally cabin tents are used by families going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. This dose though make them well suited to cooler months.
