Interesting Tunnel Tent

https://www.overstock.com/Sports-Toys/Slumberjack-Overland-8-person-Tent/11819542/product.html?utm_medium=display&utm_source=criteo&utm_campaign=display&CID=242057&width=300&height=600&dclid=COyws97ukNMCFQ5sAQodFB0N1A

This is an interesting tunnel tent from Slumberjack. Also comes in a 10 person version. The 8 person version weighs less than 20 lbs. Don't know what the pole material is. There is a video of the tent on the website. There may be issues with being able to close down the ventilation system to prevent drafts. Price is not bad for someone who want to get into Winter camping on the cheap. Also comes with a lifetime warranty.

Interesting. I'd be cautious very no extremely reluctant to attempt winter camping in that tent. Any snow load on the tent, IMO/judgement, would wreak havoc onto the inhabitants.

While the basic design is OK the strength, quality and quality control  is abysmal, they retail here for $199- at the moment as nobody was buying at $500-

Been doing some real looking around
For about the same money you could get a second hand REI Kingdom and for not much more a new REI Kingdom, a tent I did ask about using
