    It is easier to set up a tent in the outdoors. That stands to reason, they were designed to be used outdoors.

    So the thing for you to do is pack that tent up and head off down a trail. Hike from basically first light until just before dark, and be sure you end up as far from the trailhead and buildings and such as possible. Then set the tent up.

    That'll be a lot easier and better trust me.

    What tent is it? There should be no problem getting a freestanding tent up in your living room.
    Unless you have had problems getting things erected before, of course.

      I can tell OP has the REI Backpacking Combo with the Passage 2 tent.
      The main reason is the sleep pad in the background is not sold separately. as a stand-alone product. Its REI's only pad that has the cells lengthwise down the whole pad.

      I also personally own the set too so I recognized it right away. It's actually a really good setup and easy to make up. OP must really be retarded, sorry dude

        Nice detective work. Here’s a video on how to set it up.

        You seem to have made the same mistake that i did, you bought a 1 person tent.
        Got a MSR Hubba 1p a few years back. Wish i had bought the 2p for 100g more weight and 20€ more money ever since.

          why? you cant fit in a 1 person tent?

            I have a Thermarest Neo Xlite in large. It literally covers the entire inner tents floor. There is no space for anything else. The vestibule is there, but the lack of extra space mildly sucks if it's a rain day and you decide to sleep through it.

            Anyway. I bought the 1p tent and will use it, but i wish i had bought the 2p tent. Given that MSR tents now cost a third more, i'll probably not get a price that allows me to upgrade to the 2p version.

    I bought a tent that is not free standing.
    I bought a tent you have to stake otherwise it doesn't work.
    Did I fuck up?

      Maybe. But most likely it's ok, just a bit harder to pitch the first few times.
      You can use stones and logs if the ground is not soft enough for pegs. Use books if you are OP and try to get the tent up in a room.

    Still works perfectly fine. You all put too much effort into stuff. Less is more, keep it simple.

    what made you give up?
    because thats the issue here, you encountered a small problem and just gave up.
    its a fucking tent, the type with poles like that are the worst but still fully possible for a 10 year old without instructions.

        Do it outside, in your backyard. If you don’t have a yard, go to a park.

          Jesus imagine taking a drug that makes you blackout entire evenings just so you can sleep.

          You don’t have insomnia snowflake, you just need to go to bed. You are not special. Work out more.

    is setting up the pegs and string thingies that pull it outward really important even if it's not windy

      I think it is worth it for best ventilation.
      The more ventilation, the less condensation.

    Guys, since this is a waste of a thread, you just as well help me decide what tent I should get.
    I´m 6 Foot 5.
    >Jack Wolfskin Gossamer II
    >Salewa Litetrek 2
    >OneTigris Backwoods Bungalow
    >Naturehike Cloud-up 2
    Also: Can all of these be used for Winter-Camping, if I have a good Sleeping Bag/Mat?

      >Jack Wolfskin Gossamer II
      Looks fine, tunnels tend to do well in wind and snow load. However it's also very tight, so while good for hanging in poor weather it's also not something I can see spending a storm in.
      >Salewa Litetrek 2
      I think I like this one the best. Good size without being huge.
      >OneTigris Backwoods Bungalow
      Least favorite. This design doesn't look like it would do well in wind or storms. The big open front is nice but accomplishable in other ways.
      >Naturehike Cloud-up 2
      Good but large and if you don't need all the space I'd go a little smaller just to reduce the necessary footprint. I am biased by eastern US campus where larger flat spots often just don't exist.

      As for winter camping, yeah no prob. Unless you are worried about surviving really powerful winter storms the shelter does not matter as much as you think it would. Once you block the wind the cold is just insulation and moisture management. Highly recommend for deep winter doubling up on the sleeping pad. Inflatables can have good r value but feel cold anyway. Slap a closed cell on top of the inflatable.

      >Naturehike Cloud-up 2
      Only feasable if you are under 6 foot, these are chink sized for some reason.
      Don't listen to the sperg that says to buy a 1 person tent, he has never used a tent and certainly not this one.
      >Jack Wolfskin Gossamer II
      The Gossamer is an awkward tent, it's more like a super hooped bivy really. Well executed, bit heavy, not comfy at all.

      Add the MSR Hubba Hubba NX to the options. There is a Naturehike clone called the Mongar 2. No sure how well it's made.
      I'm thinking about getting one for myself and if it's ok to sell my MSR Hubba NX 1p.
