This tent is very quick and easy to put up. It is very sturdy, stormproof, and has great ventilation. The outer layer has three vents with hook and loop openings and securing tabs. The inner layer has three large mesh/mosquito net windows to allow air to circulate but keep the bugs out! It also has storage space for equipment in the hall.

While the Mil-Tec one man recon coyote tan tent requires 100″ x 67″ inches of room to set up. This could be on the large end and can present a challenge if you plan on camping on unprepared tent sites in densely vegetated areas or along backpacking trails with smaller campsites…like the Appalachian Trail or most anywhere in the Northeast. Not to worry, this isn’t a showstopper, but it means you’ll have to keep your eyes open for good tent sites or spend a little more time scouting around for one.

The design of the inner tent creates large storage areas on either side of the inner tent for gear storage or cooking in inclement weather. This would make a good spot for a dog if you bring along insulation for him/her to lie on at night.

One good feature is that the inner tent is sized for one person and has a convenient gear loft sewn in the ceiling for stashing a phone, headlamp, and glasses so they don’t get smashed at night if you roll onto them. The interior is high enough to sit up in and long but feels a bit narrow.

Still, given the amount of covered storage in the tent, it’s easy to store all of your extra gear in your pack while still being able to reach it easily when needed.

Another good feature of this tent is its packability. When you take it down, it’s about the size of a stuffed 20-degree quilt and can be stored into a small stuff sack (12″ x 5″) that will fit horizontally into most backpacks.

Recommendation

The Mil-Tec one man recon coyote tan tent is a great one-person tent that’s easy to set up and weighs about 2.56 kg, it can be set up fly-first to keep the inner tent dry in the rain, comes seam-taped, and is completely outfitted with guy ropes and aluminium pegs so you can use it as soon as it arrives.

If you’ve been wanting to slash your gear weight or try a trekking pole tent, this tent is a great option because it packs small and has plenty of room inside to store gear. The inner tent is comfortable, it has openings for enhanced airflow, and there are kick-stand vents (that work) for extra ventilation in stormy conditions.
