    (UPDATED: 12/30/2016) –
    Amazing tent, still 5-stars!! I just wanted to update, since we have used the Browning Big Horn Family Tent for three camping seasons (2014, 2015 & 2016) so far. This tent has been amazing! We have camped in conditions with cold/hot temperatures, high winds, severe rain and hail. Yes, HAIL. The tent has held up beautifully, through all of our camping adventures, and I would still highly recommend this tent. In regards to the flooring, it did leak a little during our trip to Steamboat Springs. Considering it rained every single morning and afternoon/evening, it didn’t actually leak until the day it hailed for 40 minutes straight. It wasn’t light hail, it was torrential. I noticed it was coming through one of the doors, that was facing the direction of the hail. Not a problem though, the rest of tent did great. I called ALPS/Browning when we got back and the customer service was amazing, they said it shouldn’t have leaked, and sent a replacement tent body the next day!! This was the second time, I had to call about a replacement part, the first was about a tension rod that had broken and they sent a replacement for that next day as well. Besides the tent, the customer service and warranty service agents are fantastic! An excellent tent, backed by a great company. Me and my family love this tent! We are so excited to start the 2017 camping season with the Big Horn Tent.

    (ORIGINAL REVIEW – MAY 2014)
    This past weekend, we were finally able to put the tent up for the first time, before going on a community campout this weekend in our HOA’s backcountry. First, we put down our footprint (heavy duty reversible tarp from Costco) and then pulled out the tent, poles, stakes and rainfly. The instructions were very clear and concise, and are sewn directly into the storage bag so you don’t need to worry about it getting lost. Once we had the tent folded out completely, and all of the poles extended it took my husband and I, about 15 minutes to complete the setup (and we’re novices). The tent when it is complete is 10 x 15 feet, and a center height of 7’ 3’’. My husband is 6’1’’ had PLENTY of headroom all around the tent and not just standing in the middle. He does have to bend down slightly when entering the tent, but he didn’t find that to be an issue. The tent and floor material seem to be high quality and very durable for a $300 tent. It will have to withstand me, my husband, our 5 year-old daughter and 2 Samoyeds ( 45 lbs. and 85 lbs.).

    The tent can be divided into two rooms, each room on one side of the zippered divider panel has 3 pockets for storage. Each room has its own separate entrance, which we absolutely love! There is one hook in the middle, that can be used for handing a lantern. There are 6 windows (4 on the walls and 1 on each door). One thing I would like to mention, is that there are no tie backs for the windows on the walls or the door. Not an issue for us, but something to note when purchasing. In one room, we set up 3 sleeping cots which are each 75″L x 25″W x 16″H, and they fit perfectly, taking into account about 5 inches of space in between the cots and wall.

    I have attached pictures of the interior, since there are absolutely NONE on the internet. So, we hope these pictures give you a good idea of the tent.

    We love this tent so far, and are VERY excited to take it out!

    Company Stands Behind Their Products (2nd UPDATE 6/25/14), March 10, 2014

    (UPDATED 5/2016) – I just recently used this tent again and still love the functionality and space this tent provides. We now have 2 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs with gear and still have room to stretch. What I really want to add to my review is that on our recent camping trip we were surprised to get pounded by thunderstorms for hours one night. The Big Horn held up to the wind and pouring rain. I did not detect any leakage at all and I didn’t even have the guy lines stakes down. Now that is amazing!!!

    (UPDATED 6/25/14) – Now I have upgraded from 2 stars back to 5 stars because Alps Mountaineering (makers of the Browning Big Horn) is a stand up company that offered to send me a replacement tent since the tent I purchased developed holes very quickly. I received my tent FedEx and am very pleased with Alps Mountaineering’s customer service. They really do stand behind their products, and in this day and age, a company like this seems hard to find. I do hope that the replacement tent will not have the same issue as my first, but for now, I’m just happy to get a second chance with a tent design that I really love. Thanks Alps Mountaineering!!

    (UPDATED 5/17/14) – Downgraded from 5 star to 2 star – I just took this tent out for only the second time and noticed that there are already 2 little holes in the tent wall fabric. Really?!?! I took very good care of this tent (managed to keep a $100 Coleman tent for about 8 years). I take care of my stuff and thought I was doing a good job with this tent, so one could see my serious disappointment with this tent. I had such high praise for this tent after my first use, but it now has 2 holes and haven’t got the slightest clue as to what caused them. Sorely disappointed now.
    ——————————————-
    (Original Review) – We just went camping on our maiden voyage with this new tent and had a great experience. The tent seems to be of very good quality all the way around. Poles are nice and sturdy, oxford floor is better than most at this price, and stitching is tight. It took me about 25 minutes to set up. The features that are important to me are: all windows can zip closed, it has vertical walls, the tent is big, it has two doors, rainfly buckles to anchor points, and the quality seems really good. Although we liked our previous Coleman Ridgeview tent we bought 8 years ago (finally gave out on us), this tent’s quality is superior. For what this tent is, it gets five stars.

    I just wish it had a few additional features like: more inside storage pockets, air vents located floor level, electric cord access, wish the rainfly wrapped further down the tent for even better rain protection, and an awning area would be really cool. I guess all these features would probably push the price up out of my price range though.

    The one nitpick I have is that to fully secure the rainfly to this tent, you have to hand tie six integrated rainfly straps to the pole frame. Not a very efficient process, but it is only six. It could have had velcro ties or something that would not require hand tying each one. This process is a little tedious, but it does not affect the quality of the tent.

    If you are in the market for a family tent, at $250, this tent is hard to beat.

    I posted my own image for this tent. Enjoy.

    This is the second tent we have purchased that is manufactured by ALPS. We have the Chaos 3 for backpacking and it has proven itself time and again. We thought we would try a bigger tent for car camping and we have not been disappointed. I’m gonna try and be brief but there is a lot to say about this tent. I list the PROS first: Very roomy, well ventilated, sturdy in the wind if guyed out properly, lots of space for gear. The CONS (to be clear we consider all these items minor in comparison to how well this tent served our needs) : There is very little built in storage space, only six small pockets on either side of the room divider, it can be set up by one person but if you want to start your camping trip with everyone in a good mood its best if two set it up, we did have a pretty severe storm (sleet, rain, 40+mph winds) and the driving rain does come under the fly but most people would have packed it in long before that happened. I highly recommend the footprint or a tarp for under the tent to protect your floor. It is pretty sturdy material but having that extra layer under the floor will really extend the life of this tent. We did have one pole break as a result of the storm and I have a request in to ALPS customer service regarding replacement parts. I will post the results of that when I hear from them. All in all we are pleased with this tent and cant wait to camp in it again!
