Explore the great outdoors and setup camp with ease in the new Tahoe Gear Glacier Tent. Great for comfortably sleeping up to 12 or 14, the Glacier is ideal for a night with the family or a longer excursion.
Enjoy day time in the airy, open screen room or a few restful hours in the separate master suite area. The 7-foot center and wall height is great for taller campers.
Equipped with easy setup poles, stakes, guy ropes, and rain fly for unexpected weather, this tent is ready to help you take on your next vacation or outdoor adventure.
Got this tent last week and decided to set it up in the back yard and good thing. I have owned many tents over the years including several large tents like this one. This was by far the least intuitive to set up and the instructions are brief and vague giving directions like assemble the poles instead of insert the end of the fiberglass pole into the end of the steel pole. The two other important notations I would have to someone attempting to assemble this tent are first make sure to stake out the bottom of the tent on both ends before putting in the steel poles and that they should remember that the orange bands across the rain fly align with the fiberglass poles.
On a more positive note after spending about 3 hours on the initial assembly, I was able to take it down in about 20 minutes. It only took me about 3 minutes to set up at the camp site when I did it solo. the inside is roomy an d the windows in the one half make it very livab le even in the heat. The bedroom area is large enough for my wife an I on one side and both kids on the other
I got this tent a few days ago by mail. It only took about 4 business days to arrive which made me pretty happy considering you pay over 60 for 2-3 days. i figure whats one more day if its free. Anyway though, i set it up in my basement (yes, very large basement) and so far it seems to be good. as far as i could tell none of the parts were missing or damaged or anything of that nature. since i have a cement floor i wasn't able to stake it down so i used basically string and 10lb weights to secure it in the basement (only because the forecast calls for rain the next couple of days and i am currently in the process of scotchgarding it. i didn't use the same staking methods on the rain fly because .. well, 1 i ran out of weights, 2 the fly attaches to the tent poles with hooks and velcroe and it seems secure. The tent is as big as you may imagine, if not bigger. Even I was a little impressed and speaking as someone who quite enjoys camping and has a decent amount of experience. Haven't used it once yet but plan to next weekend and it almost always rains at least once when we camp so im thinkin ill possibly post another review to tell you how it went. When you set it up while putting the figerglass poles into the sleeves, remember to get as much slack from the fabric as you can before you put the steel poles into the pins at the bottom of the tent. Andd on a side note, the fiberglass poles literally go right into the steel poles, bout the most odd tent setup iv ever seen, but makes it suprsingly simple to do.
Oh and just one small thing, the reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because in two of the inside windows, there was a small thread that wasn't supposed to be attached to the zippers of the windows and it was. The thread was directly sewn from the windows to the tent and i had to cut it to open the window. Doesn't seem to be any fraying or anything of such nature so im not too worried. Other than that, i look forward to using this tent (providing we can find a campsite that will fit it).. seriously its bigger than it seems. anyway though, hope this review helped and good luck on your purchase
I have been a camper as long as i can rmember, my single mother would take my brother and i camping at least once a year in a large blue canvas tent that weighed 2 time my brother and i put together. We weatherd many storms in that old tent together and i thought id never find its equal when i couldent find any tents made of canvas for my family, But i have found it superior in this tent.
I am former military and now law enforcement and i do wooworking on the side. I am a serious stickler for quality and i HATE cheep products so needless to say i was very skeptical when i ordered this tent.
I have used it 3 times now but this last trip was the test. we were camping for 6 days 5 nights with thunderstroms from the time of set up to the day we left. We were at an ocean front camp ground in Myrtal Beech and the wind was strong and constant. The tent held up very well it out performed my boyhood thick canvas tent hands down. I did have to deal with one small leak at the bottom corner of one of the big windows, the rain was driving strait at that window and water did start comming in. I went out and smeared "shoe goo" over the corner and the problem was solved instantly (shoe goo a campers best friend!)
I named this the "RV in a bag" because i had inside the tent 3 queen mattreses a great dane and her kennel, with all that my wife set up a television and dvd, microwave, 2 fans, and our Keurig coffee maker. My wife had only ever been "camping" in an RV in her lifetime. Even with all that there was more than enough room for all our luggage and still room to very comfortably move around we were never cramped or walking oer each other. Had this tent failed i would never have gotten my wife and 2 daughters camping again, but quite the contrary she is now anctious to go again the huge windows and ventalation system made the hot humid times between the rain barrable for us and our great dane.
Sturdy my kids in true form do not use the zipper doors correctly they half open them got to fast and trip on the half open door every time on the way out not to mention getting the zipper jammed in the rain fringe. but the sipper held very well and the stuck zippers were never and big dean they just came undone very quickly.
Set up is a thing you have to practice and is best with at least 2 people however i have done it myself twice so it is possible i also marked the "short" end all the poles and the end of the rain fly that goes over the short end this has been frusterating in a rush when you cand figure out which way to put it or you fing you have a short pole by mistake but some simple marking with a paint marker worked great.
i am giving this tent 4 starts it would be 4.5 if Tahoe would color code the "short" end poles in conjunction with better instructions and i would give it a 5 if we had not had any leakes over all this tent far surpassed my expectations for quality, size, ventalation and design.
We first bought this tent three years ago and used it for the entire summer taking it down and setting it up. It took the two of us two hours but that included the queen bed, air conditioner for the dogs, and the wicker couch and chair. The second year we set it up, placed a large tarp over it and left it set up from April to October in Indiana. We replaced it the third year due to bad door zippers with the same tent. LOVE IT.
