    1. 1500+ miles over 16 years

      I've used this tent since I won it in a scout raffle 2002. It has been my go-to backpacking tent for so long because I like the small sized package. This enabled me to save significant weight and use a 28 liter backpack for 1400 miles of the PCT, which I thru-hiked in 2017. The Starlite is a very affordable, capable, and often unconsidered option for long distance hikers. on Apr 26th 2018

    2. Unsatisfied

      I just got tent in the mail when I went to set up the A frame poles seemed to long and when placed in one notch while trying to put the other end in the loop where you put it just tore and now I have a hole in my tent and I was supposed to go camping the next day. on Dec 31st 2017

    3. great product

      i have an older wenzel 1 man tent similar design to their current starlight
      have had it 15 years and has been flawless
      last weekend i set it up during a scout outing , but last minute i used another tent and left the wenzel set up just in case
      no fly and no ground cloth i left it set up during 3 days of constant rain, heavy rains at times,
      last day went to break it down, there was just minimal amount of water on the inside, maybe 8oz total, surprised the heck out of me, 15 years later its still a good tent and my preferred tent when solo camping
      it is a tight squeeze getting in, but for a 1 man tent that is to be expected
      if you have a large pack or heavier clothes in cold weather camping bring a tarp to store your gear under as its a tight fit and gear will be touching the walls hence transferring moisture
      i do recommend setting it up properly, stake it out tight and taught
      any sagging will cause leaks,

    4. Budget Backpacker

      I'm a backpacker on a budget and I am very pleased with this tent. It's easy to set up and take down, with minimal poles and such to fiddle with. Sure, it's a bit cramped inside but all one man tents are. Last weekend I took it on a 15 mile hike in the GSMNP. We camped at site 13, Sheeps Pen Gap, at 4600 ft. The temp that night was 50 deg. F and we had 30 mph gusts. The tent stayed put and I was quite snug inside. I had no condensation issues in the morning, but I kept the main opening open a bit for a little ventilation. I'm looking forward to using more this tent more this summer through fall. I would recommend this tent to any budget minded or entry level backpacker. A very good value! on May 2nd 2017

    5. good value tent

      This a good tent for 3 season backpacking. It has some quirks, tough to get in and out of being the only major one. With that said I have used this tent 7 or 8 times in the Smokies and Big Southfork with great success and am glad I have it. I would buy another one. You can squeeze 2 people in a pinch. on Feb 28th 2017

    6. Good 1man tent

      This is a good tent for the money. Orient the tent towards the wind and condensation issues are minimal.

    7. Needs more venting

      Condensation will build, and you will wake up in at least a half inch of water, rusting your favorite hatchet. At least it's light and takes up very little space on Jan 4th 2017
