GigaTent Recon 2 Dome Backpacking Tent
This tent is better than what is pictured here.
Patrick Quinn from Tucson, Arizona
For $50 I found the Gigatent Recon 2 a good deal, however I wouldn't use this tent for backpacking very far, due to the weight and bulk, but it's fine for any short trek campsite. At this time of my reviewing this Recon 2 I purchased, they still have only this one sad photo showing the tent and the tent with the rainfly on the web. The tent is better than what is represented there. The rainfly's color is a darker olive Army fatigue green, which is great for blending in to most outdoor environments, unlike many tent manufacturers who offer you wacky colors. You can see the rain, wind, and gear storage benefits for this type of full circle rainfly, with vestibules and door entry on “both” sides. The tents internal floor size is 8'X5', though their picture makes it look like a skinner tent, which it's not. It's a more than comfortable size for one person, but I don't think many would want to cram two people in that size space. The Recon 2 tent I received was constructed very well with no issues. Because I like this tent for its price, features, and subdued colors, I'd hope someone will post actual pictures or do a YouTube video showing this tent in detail. At this time, YouTube has a video with someone giving a good talking review of this tent, but he doesn't show the product. It's a good tent. More should know about it.
