I purchased this tent to replace our Coleman Oasis tent which had a broken zipper. Really liked the quality of the Coleman, but could never find it on sale. Sears (and Kmart) had this one at about 70 bucks on sale, so I decided to try it and have to say, on first use, it satisfies! Roomy, easy to set up, with a small closet our Coleman didn't have. The most impressive part is, although the owner's manual admonished us to seam seal the tent---of course we didn't----and the Northwoods tent withstood several downpours severe enough to leave small lakes around our campsite with no leaks at all, due in part to a smartly designed rainfly that (thankfully) does not require tons of guy lines staked into the qround to be tripped over in the middle of the night. The only drawback this tent has in comparison to the Coleman is the headroom. I could walk around in the Coleman Oasis and get dressed without ducking or bending. In the Northwoods I can only stand at full height in the center, and my head touches the ceiling. However, I consider this a minor drawback as I don't go camping to spend a lot of time standing around my tent. I don't know how long it will last, but on first use, the Northwoods six-person tent satisfies!
This tent or should I say water hole. Camping on 2nd night, it rained, not a storm of any kind. The walls of the tent in every seam water ran down The walls. We had puddles of water on Th e floor. Everything got wet. We used towels to sop up Th e water, but too much water coming from all The walls. Th e honest truth. A wet.tent on Th e inside does not pack up which I had to throw away Th e tent. You just can't use it for anything. Just like that. Money not well spent. I would not recommend this tent or brand. It was that bad!!! nt
