Magnetic doors worked very well. Our food remained bug and leaf free.
Easy to assemble. Door magnets work well. Looks nice. Hasn't withstood any high winds yet, so can only hope.
Works wonderful for a cooking tent or a dining tent!
This is an excellent product. It made our camping trip so wonderful.
Very happy with this screen tent! Stakes down solid, and really love the Velcro closure. You can go in and out so easy. Great buy!
We loved our screen house while camping on Cape Cod. It was very easy to assemble (though it's best if you have 2 people), and it was sturdy and held up even through some rain storms. The magnetic closures were a game changer. We've had screen houses with zipper closures, and it's always hard to get inside while carrying plates of food. I was worried if the magnets would really seal the screen - but I'm pleased to say they worked as advertised! It made it so easy for us to get inside, but not the bugs!
This seems well made & does come with a 10 year warranty . Definitely pluses! It needs stakes or big 6”-8” nails to hold it close to ground so bugs don’t sneak in that way . The doors seem to ride a good inch above the floor of this making another easy entrance for more bugs! Not good !!!
Our picnic table fits perfectly and leaves enough room for extra chairs and a side table and it is high enough to accommodate our 6’ 4”” son! It was easy to put up and has withstood several really heavy rain storms since being out up several weeks ago! I cannot understand why other buyers have complained about it collapsing the first time they used it! They must not be putting it up correctly! The magnets are a plus, they work perfectly and beat using a zipper each time we go in or out!
This took about 10 min to put up with 1 person and about 5 min to fine tune it. Instructions were clear and the support rods just about set up automatically. With everything in it's place the tent feels nice and sturdy. 6/27 Update Had several heavy down pours roll through things went smooth. Some high windy days and tent is standing just as day one. I am enjoying this tent tremendously. No biting bugs annoying me. If one does get in well i got my trusty fly swatter and that is that.
It fits over standard picnic table (around 7-8 feet long).
I bought this tent because it was the only thing that I could find to fit over the back galley of my teardrop camper. After reading some of the online reviews I was worried that it just would not hold up at all, but it was the only thing that I could find that was light weight, small pack size, and reasonably priced. Others said that it ripped and poles broke the first time out. It's not a real sturdy tent but it has worked good for me without any damage from moderate winds for two months now. As I said I needed something for my teardrop camper and this was the only thing in its size (9x11'). I cut an "H" slit in one of the narrow ends of the tent screen and then slipped it over the tongue of my camper and back to the front side of the finders and then set up as normal covering the galley hatch of my camper and giving me a nice size area to use the galley and to sit in. If I had to do it all over again, I'd buy the same tent.
I used this for our camping kitchen and I couldn’t be happier. It set up quickly and because the weather cooperated, didn’t stake it.
After a few years of use one of the legs broke where it attaches to the tent material at the bottom. We attempted to jb weld it back together and it didn’t hold. The tent is now rather useless. The part isn’t available separately. Too bad because the screen. Zippers and tarp fabric have lasted.
Please offer repair parts.
I just set it up by myself and never having done it before it took all of maybe 10 minutes. Very easy set up. Looks good.
We used our new screen house for the 1st time in July 4th weekend in Florida. It was amazing at keeping the bugs out and kinda fun to "bust" through the magnetic doors. It stormed during the weekend and while we were not in the house during it afterwards we noticed a minimal amount of rain on the picnic table. Definitely worth the price.
I’m an older woman with arthritic hands, and I can easily and quickly put this up and take it down. Fits well in the bag. I would buy it again. Something nibbled the screen and tore it. I’ll patch it with mosquito netting. Someday.
We liked the size and shape and overall appearance of the tent. Easy enough to set up, good instructions. But we did have a couple of complaints as well. The biggest one is it supposed to be made to keep the bugs out, but the doors don't close well and there are gaps in it. And the doors are actually made to be too short so there is about 2-3 inches short so a BIG opening at the bottom of the doorway for the mosquito's to come in. I don't understand why you would have mosquito netting all around it and have these BIG gaps in the doorway? We bricked the bottom all the way around to give it stability and keep it anchored and it also closed the gap a little bit but it doesn't help the openings in the split doors.
We have had several screen tents, but the ones that hold up the best in our 30+ mile an hour winds, has always been Screen House! This withstood 2 straight days of a storm with winds gusting to 56 mph! I needed something bigger, so purchased this. I knew the magnets would not work well, however it works for what I need it for! The price was good, and after trying a few other brands, came back to Screen House, because they hold up much better in our wind! I also like the fact it's easy to tear down and pack up!
Like any outdoorsmen, one of my biggest pet peeves of the true and raw exposure of the backcountry are bugs. They're everywhere and they want your food and your blood. My girlfriend and I needed something durable and reliable to make our backcountry 4x4 trips even more exciting and luxurious. The 10x10 screen tent, or as what we've now named, "The Screen Porch" not only exceeded our expectations of keeping those pesky flying insects out of our "bug free zone" but also conveniently now serves as our multi use kitchen, card playing hang out tent. It also (believe it or not) reduces a 13mph outdoor wind speed to a light breeze from inside the tent, which didn't blow our cards away during our nightly card games alongside georgeous vistas at our lovely camp sites in Sequoia National Forest. We were also impressed by how insulating the tent is from cooler outdoor temps. Also, if you strew a bed sheet over the windward side of the screen porch, you'll have zero breeze inside. If you strew a bed sheet over all 4 sides, with a gas lantern burning inside, it'll get toasty! I had no idea how much room 100 square feet would actually provide. For those of you who don't know, it comfortably fits a camp table, three coolers, 2 chairs, an 80lb black lab and two adults with lots of wiggle room. If you're on the market for an affordable, durable and bug free living room for your camping trips, get this tent.
I also want to give a shout out to the private sellers who sent me this tent. I requested that this tent arrive a little sooner than forecasted so my girlfriend and I could get our package before we leave for out next trip. They made it happen which made this backcountry 4x4 trip into the southern high Sierras even nicer because the bugs were atrocious. Thanks you guys.
Spacious I like the magnetic doors. Don't like the door foot mats. Definitely should use the tie downs for the wind.
It was easy for one person to put up and I like not having to unzipper it. The common complaint of the doors having a gap is true however they provided flaps on the base of the tent below the door that I simply put velcro on the inside to keep the door attached to the the base when I'm inside enjoying my morning coffee and reading. I have an overhead car port enclosure attached to the house and don't have the money to screen it in. In the meanwhile this works great. I added long bungee cords to concrete blocks to keep it stable in the wind and it has held up well in the storms that have rolled through the past month. I anticipate it will be easy to disassemble if a hurricane is coming my way.
Worked out really well for our first week trying it out. Setup takes a little time and fine tuning. Love the magnetic door latches - they really work we’ll and improve convenience and usability.
