Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zipper Failure Our 2nd Flying Diamond 6 tent. Zippers are so cheap and bad, they failed quickly. We got this Big Agnus tent when the zippers gave out after nearly 30 years on our Kelly tents (2). Big Agnus needs to learn that Cheap is the new Expensive. Go YKK Zippers or go home.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Failed zipper and wet floor - TWICE We initially bought the Flying Diamond 6 three years ago. We found that during a wet camping trip the floor was moist/wet, even though we were using the footprint. In addition, the zipper on the front door began pulling open. We returned it to REI within our 1 year warranty. Because we were assured that the problems we experienced should only be related to that tent, and we like the robust design and large room for our family, we purchased a second one. We have used that second tent for ~30 nights of camping. This past weekend we were in a pretty heavy rain for a night. Once again, the floor was moist/wet; wet enough to make clothes on the floor wet. Once again, the zipper started pulling open. This tent withstood serious winds at Waterton Lakes, when other tents were folding over. However, it does not seem to be able to withstand prolonged rain. With a trip to Newfoundland in our future, we are seriously concerned with whether this tent will work for us. In addition, we cannot seem to get the back door region pulled tight; the floor always rises up. And the "vestibule" in the back is a joke; it essentially is flush with the tent. Finally, the pole in the front vestibule puts additional strain on the front door, which is likely why the zipper keeps failing. We really want to like this tent. But we're really frustrated with the wet floors and opening zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ole Reliable This tent has seen a lot of action - in particular wind and rain. Always dry! It's huge inside and fits a pack n play no problem and has lots of room for gear and kiddos to play if it's gross outside. Highly recommend this brand - our only challenge in some parks is that it is a big tent so it doesn't always fit on the tent pad as easily. In 30 or so camping trips we've only had an issue one time with that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used Only Once I used this tent only once, and during the set up process, one of the poles bent, and I noticed the seam tape on the floor of the tent was already peeling up. I liked the lay out, and it seemed sturdy enough, but for the price, it should be way more sturdy. The zippers also seemed very lightweight for a tent in this price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from owned for 3 or 4 years now. owned this tent for 3-4 years now and have camped in it probally a total of 50 nights. some rain/wind(40mph) and never once had a has held up great. my biggest gripe which is a minor one is be careful when picking a site with a tent pad as tent is big and sometimes will overhang on smaller tent pads.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very secure tent This review is actually for the previous version of the Flying Diamond 6. I'm not sure how much has been changed for the current version other than colors, but from what I've read they're pretty consistent from year to year so I wouldn't expect any big changes in materials or construction quality. The tent sets up fairly easily. No can set it up solo in ca 10-15 minutes working slowly; I could probably do it in half the time if I did away with being particular about it and just set it up ;-). It's roomy inside & has a separate "room" in the back with its own door. There are lots of mesh pockets throughout the interior to stow small items. With the rain fly set up and guyed out the tent is very stable - even in high winds and stormy weather. I once tried it out with my 6 year-old son in the back yard during a thunder storm & while the walls shook (this was very severe weather) the tent stayed up and stayed dry. I didn't have the fly velcro-ed to the poles & this probably impacted the stability. It's described as a 3-season tent, but would probably work for most winter weather (especially here in Texas). One drawback is that the back of tent isn't really supported by the poles & needs to be staked at the corners to stay up, so it's not 100% "free standing". Other than that I'vd had no complaints. I've had the tent ca 4 years now & used it 6 times. It's held up very well.

What is the PU Waterproof rating on the fabric? Saying it is waterproof doesn't mean anything. What are the numbers? Anyone know?

Asked by: Quickplaya
This tent has a 1500 mm waterproof rating.
