CORE 9 Person Extended Dome Tent Review

At 16’ x 9’ feet, CORE had made a great, big tent that will tough for competitors in the camping tent market to outclass. For the price, it’s a fantastic deal-- to put it simply. If you want a big, durable tent, you’re not going to get much bigger than this big domed shelter. This fits 9 people, in camping terms… For the average person, it might be clearer to say that it fits three queen sized air mattresses with a bit of extra space.

The tent is totally easy and quick to set up, and is bigger than many large tents that are in the same price range. Not only is it big, but it is well designed and the space is effectively distributed in order to create an awesome camping experience.

The tent is resistant against water in several ways. First of all, it is built with water repellent fabrics, which create an experience where the water runs off quick. It also comes with a very effective rain fly which can be taken off in warm weather, and is easy to reattach. It is worth removing in the warm weather, too, as the mesh on the top of the tent is meant to be panoramic and allows for a nice view.

The tent also features a deceptively complex and generally brilliant ventilation system, which is fully in your control. There’s an adjustable air vent on the bottom of the tent, which allows as much (or as little) cool air as you’d like into the tent, and the mesh can be managed to accommodate the expedient exit and escape of warm air on hot days. Pockets are included in the upper reaches of the tent which make use of open space, turning it into storage, and there is a whole lot of space to enjoy inside this tent.

In general, I am usually a lot more critical, but I have found it hard to find things to knock, especially for the price that this tent is offered at.

When I recommend a product of any kind, I realize that I am placing the reputation of Survival Cooking behind that recommendation, so there is something real that is at stake. That being said, I  absolutely recommend this tent to almost anybody; unless of course you need to sleep more than 3 queen sized air mattresses worth of people. But yes, this is a great tent, and the price it is available to be purchased for represent extreme value for the potential consumer.
