Inside Height39 in

 

 

Key features:

2 min set up time

Lightweight

One door

Smaller tent

A charging port for electronics

 

 

 

 

 

The Wakeman pop up 2 person is a great tent for certain conditions and people. Although its definitely a specialized tent which can be perfect for specific situations. First off this tent is not well suited for rain, instead it a great lightweight summer tent for moderate weather.

 

 

 

 

 

Also, the Wakeman is not a great tent for two adults, especially if you are tall Even if you are around 5’8. That is why this tent is a great fit for smaller people like kids, and its easy for them to set up.

 

 

 

 

 

The drawback is that it can be a little hard for kids to break it down so you might need to help them. It’s not especially difficult to take this tent down if you know how unlike other tents which remain a challenge.

 

 

 

 

 

Also this tent has only one door which can make it hard to leave the tent in the middle of the night without waking your neighbor. Although this tent does have electrical access ports allowing for you to attach a cable without unzipping or puncturing your tent which is a nice feature.

 

 

 

 

 

ProsCons
