As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time. This last weekend I got to test the Wenzel Great Basin 10 tent (https://wenzelco.com/great-basin-10/) at Yosemite National Park's North Pines campground. Overall, my impression of this tent is that it is a solid and reliable tent. Yes, it has a few design items that could be improved for ease of use, but overall it served us well and I look forward to using it again. The tent is a domed center-opening design, with two side "rooms" that can be separated by zipped curtains, making three interior spaces total. My husband and I filled up on room with two large cots facing length wise (we had them oriented along center line and still had enough room to move along the sides). The other side has more than ample room for my daughter's small cot, which ran the width of the tent along the side window. Very comfortable for three people.
Yes, this is a huge tent. Can it be set up by one person? Probably, if that person is patient and tenacious. Two people work much better. A few design items we found annoying were the pole connections, which would frequently catch on the tent pole sleeves and center strap. Also, the zipper flap on the tent's door would frequently get caught in the zipper, making it almost a necessity to use two hands to open and close the tent. Besides these two small inconveniences, the tent worked great. The rain fly fits snug against the tent roof. The construction felt sturdy and we liked the design of the three interior rooms.
Overall, we had a fun two nights in Yosemite. We might make a tradition out of going for the closing weekend each year. Unknown on Oct 31st 2019
The reason I am writing this review is because I was really happy with the performance of this tent. I purchased this tent earlier this spring (2016) for family camping and hunting. I decided on this tent because it was spacious (10 person) and looks like it could weather the elements better than other tents its size. The first time taking it out it rained all weekend. The tent had no issues, and did very well. The second time I took it out to go scouting, weather was perfect and it did excellent again. The third time I took it out however, the weather was very poor. Took it up to the Ruby Mountains, in Northern Nevada, mid-October for my hunt. As it always seems to go in the Rubies, the weather never turns out to be what the weather report shows. The first few nights the tent was able to withstand continuous 25-35 MPH wind gusts and rain without much intervention. We ended up adding a few extra tie downs to the rain cover and tent to help keep it down and make it more aerodynamic. We had to wake up a few times through those first nights to help hold up the tent through some of the larger gusts, but it was durable and got us to the morning. The weather was so poor, temps in the high 30’s, that we were forced to do all cooking on a stovetop in the tent. This tent was so spacious we had plenty of room to set up two queen blowup mattresses and a foldup table in between, with space for our foldup chairs as well. I know these high profile tents are not normally able to withstand such poor weather, but this tent did a great job. It was only on the fourth night were the temperature dipped to the low 30’s with rain/snow and wind gust in the 40-50 MPH did we have an issue. Even though we parked the trucks in front of the tent to assist with shielding, and added the additional tie-downs, we lost the tent that night at 2am. The rain cover ripped causing us to scramble for our possessions to prevent them from been damaged from the heavy downpour. We were forced to abandon the tent and any goods we couldn’t scramble together, and drive 2 hours back to town for the night. We came back the next morning and the tent was tore up, poles and tent shell were shattered. We were sad to have to throw the tent away, but were very fortunate for the first few nights of rough weather it was able to help get us through. High quality tent. Jake S. on Nov 13th 2016
