“The Two Man Tent” from Poler is a great addition to any car camping kit. Unlike most dome tents that claim to be “two man” (but are really more like one and a half if you want to keep your pack inside the tent), the Poler Two Man Tent could easily fit two people and your bags. It is much more spacious than your average two man dome tent. In fact, this tent can realistically sleep 3 adults as long as they are all small, or two average sized adults and one small child.
When I first set it up, I was quite confused as to how this design of pole layout could possibly work. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and easily this tent was to set up. It was easy enough that I didn’t need to reference the instruction sheet that is conveniently sewn into the inside of the tent’s stuff sack.
Included are stakes, tie down line, and a patch kit. A 3000mm waterproof coating keeps you dry inside and all seams are taped and sealed. “The Two Man Tent” measures 60” W x 85” L x 40” H when set up, 7” x 18” when packed, and weighs 7.5 lbs, stakes and poles included. The size and weight of this tent prevents it from being effective for backpacking, but it makes it perfect for comfortable car camping trips. The inner tent is nearly all ventilated mesh, which is then covered by the outer rainfly. This rainfly, unlike most, has two clear windows through which the occupants can see outside without having to unzip the tent or rainfly as you would with a normal tent.
Another cool feature of this tent is its two doors, one on each side. Like most things with this tent, these doors are different. Most tent doors unzip and open to one side of the other. The doors on “The Two Man Tent” unzip and roll/fold up to the top of the door. This quickly gets the open door out of the way instead of having to fumble with those little tie downs. I really like how each door has its own 2 vestibules for stashing gear under the rainfly but outside the tent such as backpacks, boots, and hiking staffs.
Inside the tent there are two attachment hooks for hanging lights from above. There are also two small mesh pockets built into the lower wall of the tent.
To sum things up, I love this tent by Poler. The design and build quality are superb. I highly recommend it for anyone in the market for a new two-man tent for car camping.
