I agree with the above sportsmen---I want close-up photos of components not of people. This review shouldn't have been entered.

I'm 59 and bet I've spent more hrs in a tent than these two guys put together. Just bought a new tent recently for canoe/car camping. Spent many many hours online comparing models and finally decided on an REI Basecamp 6. Any tent reviews that don't even mention any REI tents is worthless in my opinion. Not the cheapest tents but extremely high quality and excellent customer service. Cabela's makes some good tents too.

This is, without a doubt, the worst gear review I've ever read online or in a magazine. Timing how long it takes to put the tents up without first reading the directions? Are these "gear editors" in 3rd grade? Did they hire a photographer for this or did they just get one of their wives to take the pictures? When you have to go to other websites to try and explain this "review," you know you've read a poorly crafted work.

It's infuriating to know that there are good people out there who have lost their jobs as editors and writers during this economic crisis, and to see this shoddy type of review. What are these guys editors of exactly? A complete waste of my time.

Well I have to say , this is the first article that was a total waste of time. Preview new tents they say ,but only talked about a few . They didnt go into any real detail ,I am a tent camper from way back and I know that there are a lot of good tents out there . this article didnt really show us anything to help pick a new tent , it only showed the guys seemingly in ones backyard. So how bout real info next time like price , size how many it sleeps comfortably that sort of thing
Please Continue to uphold all the years of good work outdoor life has had

sd-whittail, I could not agree more.that was good info but they could have just not had any pictures and would have been just as good. I had to google the tents when I read the artical just to see the inside of the tents. Just fyi, we really dont care what yall look like, show the equipment.

Deliberately setting up a tent without reading the instructions is silliness. Haven't you ever read or heard the aphorism, "When all else fails, read the instructions?" Do you ignore the instructions and warnings in reloading manuals? Do you ignore the instructions in the owners manual of cars and trucks?

No offense to the gear editors, but I think pictures focused on the tents rather than them would have been a little more beneficial to readers. I'm sure October's issue will be a little better focused on the tents. Can't wait to see it because I'm on the fence about buying a tent. Only problem is I have to buy one before a big outting in two weeks. Kelty is at the top of my list so far. I'm gonna research the Apex a bit more. Thanks for the test guys!!
