    I used this tent on the playa last year, and I am planning to use it again this year. We had some wicked winds and the tent remained totally untouched. The canvas did well with the playa dust, some came in from when we used the door, but not much otherwise. The groundsheet was easy to unzip and powerwash afterwards. The stakes that came with the tent were rebar so they worked great, and the metal sliders got warm in the sun, but they really held the ropes tight so we didn’t have to mess with them repeatedly. Really happy with our purchase, perfect for Burning Man.

    Our adventure started with remodeling an old New England house from the ground up! This past spring we decided to stay close to our gardens & our home so after some investigation we found the Stout Tent Co. & we purchased 1 Ultimate 5000 Pro Edition tent, 2 days after setting it up we knew this was perfect so we ordered another! It has been so wonderful & easy to live in this tent that we are now purchasing Frontier Stove Kits so that we can continue to live in these cozy tents for another month until the house is finished. The tents are well made & we expect them to last for many summers to come, The Stout Company was a pleasure to buy from & the tents arrived quickly! Easy enough set up with clear instructions, we love our Stout tents! Thank you to them! They are 4 season tents, keep you posted!

    I am so pleased with my stout tent. Every time we are in it, I feel like we are transported to this wonderful, peaceful place and time and it is just the best purchase I have ever made. That is not why I am writing a review, however. We purchased our tent about a year ago. During it’s third use, the person borrowing our tent misplaced the entire A-frame! After working tirelessly to track it down with no avail, I called Stout tents. I was hoping they would sell me the A-frame instead of making me buy the entire tent again (As the tent is only like 4 parts so missing one part is a pretty substantial loss) I couldn’t believe it! They sent it to me THAT DAY FOR FREE! It still stands that is by far the best purchase I have ever made. I love Stout Tents and will sing their praises forever and always.

  4. Jeremy O’Donnell

    I just recently bought the pro series and received it very fast. Within a few days. It was everything I expected it to be. A Good quality big tent.
    I plan on using it on week long big game hunts. It will easly fit 4 Cots and all of your gear. I look forward to getting an awning and setting up a wood stove to complete all of my luxury needs!!
    Thank you stouttent for answering my ?’s and helping me pick the right tent!

    I’m the Japanese living in Taipei city.
    A tent of my order arrived yesterday. The shipping off correspondence to overseas is good!
    I also possess same
    style competitor’s Bell tent products, but it’s quite high-quality. I like it.
    The correspondence to questions, custoer service is also excelent.
    Thank you very much.

  6. Michelle Cassel

    This tent is like home away from home. I’ve been camping all my life and have gone through many different types of tents. The Stout tent is by far the most comfortable and durable tent I have used. It has a beautiful design and was surprisingly easy to assemble given its size. Our son loves to play in it so much that we decided to keep it up in our back yard when we aren’t using it on camping trips:)

  7. stanpetroff (verified owner)

    Excellent tent, I would recommend it to anyone wanting a great high quality tent. Can’t wait to take it to burning man!

  8. Tracy leary

    This tent was exactly what we were looking for. The quality of the material and craftsmanship are unmatched. Plenty of room for a family of four(or8) and the dog. Reflective guidelines, seriously heavy-duty stakes and the center pole has a lantern hook. They thought of everything. The customer service is truly amazing. Used it for the 1st time this weekend and everyone that went by tried to get a pic of it. The best tent we have ever owned.

  9. Jeannie Shepler

    My husband and I are so very pleased with our tent and the excellent customer service we received from Caitlyn and crew! What started out as a bumpy experience was quickly changed to an overall extremely satisfied experience. You see, we had purchased a Frontier Plus stove, and Stout uses flashing kits for just the Frontier stove. Our flashing kit is a 45 degree angle oval shape and after talking with Caitlyn we were told our tent could be customized to fit our flashing kit. When we received our tent, the hole that was cut fit our flashing kit silicone sleeve perfectly; however, the stove jack wasn’t big enough to accommodate the overall size of the flashing kit. Sadly, we had to send the tent back, but Caitlyn and her talented husband Jim modified the stove jack to fit our flashing kit. They even cut out the holes and added grommets so we could just attach our flashing kit! All of the modifications were free of charge and our tent was returned to us within a week! Stout Tent is a company that stands by their product, and their product is AWESOME! Thanks to everyone at Stout Tent for making our experience so wonderful. You truly are amazing people!!!

    Love, love this tent. Using in an off grid scenario, perfect, easy setup, quality product. The staff at Stout Tent are excellent with outstanding customer service.
    So happy we purchased this product.

    I was in the market for a larger tent. Our family of 5 was getting cramped in a 3-4 man back packing tent, and it was getting frustrating having to sit down to get dressed. I knew I didn’t want one of those Costco family tents, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted. I somehow stumbled upon canvas tents, and I started looking at spring bar tents. They seemed very functional, and many people were using them as base camps. As I tried to get more information about canvas tents, my search led me to bell tents. The idea of the bell tent appealed to me more than the rugged and functional spring bar tent. It seemed more about freedom and exploration and less about surviving in the outdoors. Now, the objective was to find the best tent and the best company. I arrived at stout tent, and I am glad that I did. I emailed Caitlyn/Stout, and I got a quick reply. I asked questions about different companies, different materials, etc, and Caitlyn quickly sent me some canvas samples. I decided on the 5 meter pro series with the double wall. It was back ordered, but when I talked with them, I knew the tents had already arrived, and I received my tent in only 4 days.
    I am going camping next weekend, and so I quickly unboxed it and set it up. It is massive in my backyard, but it went up easily. The only time consuming part was hammering in all of the stakes. The quality is top notch. The kids and mom already slept in it in the backyard. I know we will use it often, and based on the initial inspection, it should last a long time. It is definitely water resistant. The sprinklers came on, and the water just beaded up. The only downside is the weight and packed size. It will take a couple of people to move it around or someone who is relatively strong. Also, it will take up a decent amount of your car storage, so plan accordingly, i.e. roof racks, hitch carriers, or a bigger SUV.

  12. Kimberly Coto

    As a small framed woman, I was able to set up the 16ft professional bell tent in 30 mins, with no problem. The second it was done, my toddler ran in running all around the huge space. All my neighbors have taken a tour and asked when they can sleepover. This will be our home away from home when we travel to Canada for years to come, as the quality of this tent will surely last. After two bouts of rain, not single leak. Buy this tent!

  13. Gary (verified owner)

    Paced my order last Monday and received my tent on last Thursday. Great customer service. They treated me like family, answering all my questions. I can’t believe the quality workmanship in my tent, perfectly sewn seams and heavy duty plastic zipper. – Gary

  14. Jeremiah Braem

    Unbelievable! Words can’t even describe how amazing this tent is. We set our tent up a few days ago and are living in it until late fall. We have a whole living space set up in there, including a 55″ TV, a queen adjustable bed and a mini fridge. It looks stunning inside and out and the materials are super heavy duty and durable. We live in New Hampshire and the nights are in the low 30s, so we’ve been using a space heater. It has done a pretty decent job, but we are contemplating getting the woodstove kit, which will come in handy in the fall as well. Overall, we are very satisfied with our tent and would recommend one to anyone!!!

    I gave this tent as a gift and she loved it. She immediately set it up in the yard and got our king size air mattress out to see if it would fit, it does. The air mattress is a little snug but doesn’t take up too much room. I noticed as we were setting up the tent the high-quality zip in ground liner and durable stitching. She loves the windows are double lined with mosquito netting so you can leave the canvas open and be sure mosquitos will not make it to you (they love her). I also noticed while we were setting up the tent she was excited and ahead of me she can put the center pole up by herself. So a small 5’1” woman can set this up alone and take it down just as easily. I would recommend carry handles on the end of the bag the tent comes in though. The tent is heavy and we tried a two-man lift on it which is difficult with the big straps. We are excited to go camp and take it out for the night but I think she’s thinking the week. Overall, she could not be more happy with the tent and has already recommended it to all of her friends who are coming over later this week to check it out.

  16. Jumana Sophia (verified owner)

    This tent is durable, elegant, and just awesome. We will be having events and this will be a part of them, so we’ve been able to make it an amazing and welcoming space for groups. Carpets, cushions, lighting. I plan to spend many days actually living in it this summer too. Opening up the screen walls all around is so good, perfect for where I live in Southern Oregon, where it gets hot but stays relatively dry. I would recommend this tent to anyone, for both quality and aesthetic, and I plan to get about four more of them when we move onto a bigger event/retreat space.

  17. oldscoolboarder (verified owner)

    After a lot of research our family decided to buy a Stout Tent instead of other Bell or Wall tents on the market. We have a daughter with special needs so needed something a little more comfortable than a regular tent that we could also heat at night. We are planning to use a propane stove that vents outside the tents already sewed in 3″ stove jack. We are very impressed with the quality of the tent and the customer service that was provided to us throughout the process. The tent is heavy but is a lot better than hauling a camping trailer behind a truck. We are looking forward to all the camping trips lined up for the summer. Thank you Stout Tent!

    We took our new 5m Pro Series tent up to South Dakota this July in our Subaru. While it’s a bit bulky it was great to have so much space once we were set up. And get good mileage vs driving a van or camper as I’ve done before. While we were there we had a storm come through with 50 to 60 mile an hour winds, several inches of rain and dime sized hail. The tent survived unscathed other than a small amount of water that got in due to the doors not being zipped shut at the bottom and some interesting light pockmarks from the hail. Meanwhile a Teepee nearby blew over as did porter potty’s etc. We slept good in that tent that night knowing we were going to be dry and secure.

    i used this tent in thailand while on vacation, and it was perfect. The tent has good designed and quality product. Can’t wait to use it again on our next trip.

  21. Peri Rothman (verified owner)

    LOVE our new pro series tent! A few days after setup was complete, we had 2 weeks of surprise rain and hail storms – the tent stood up better than the ceiling of the house did! The quality of this tent is amazing and we have already used it for meals, parties and sleeping. We plan on using it long-term as an additional space for guests at our homestead in the mountains. So far, the guests have been fighting over who gets to stay out there. Best purchase, we are so happy with our new tent!
    Also – amazing customer service – could not recommend working with the crew at Stout any more!

    My family moved out to the States from the
    UK last year where camping involves battling all of the elements and I can safely say that these bell tents are more than up to the task. The canvass is cool on summer days with the breathable cotton and great at keeping the elements out in less inclement weather although that doesn’t seem to be too much of an issue in Nevada.
    The quality of the equipment is excellent with all the components coming in beautiful hard wearing detailed storage bags, which reinforces the fact that without a doubt this is a purchase that will stand the test of time. We purchased the Pro series 5m with bug shield and an awning for the front. We are probably upgrading to the stove next year and having the tent already prepared with a stove pipe access patch was another plus for us in choosing Stout Tents
    The icing on the cake for us is the service. So rarely these days do you find a company that does exactly what they say they will do but Stout Tent goes above and beyond with call backs on questions and timely and friendly service. My advice is don’t be swayed by cheaper import variants out there. We have found out in the past that with a purchase such as this you truly get what you pay for and this tent will certainly stand the tests of time. All of this makes it especially important in my opinion to have the support of such a tried, tested and trusted company.

  23. Sheena

    What a great tent for our camp. We needed extra living space at our camp for our kids and chose a Stout Bell Tent. Pitching the tent is straightforward with easy to follow directions. Take down and storage is also quick and easy. We look forward to using it for years to come.

  24. Sheena

    Great tent. Set up is easy. The instructions made first time set up a snap. Likewise disassembly and stowing the tent was quick and easy. We are looking forward to using it at our camp for many years to come.

    I did research before buying a Stout Bell Tent. It was generated by the focus in Sunset magazine. I went with the top quality rated tent company and am very pleased with the quality. Your customer service and support is excellent. I am not sure who helped me purchase our tent. Their insight for our location and climate helped me to pick the right tent for our area. In addition, they sent ideas too – like the use of a wooden platform that could be used to level out the tent on a slope. And one last thing, thanks for your service to our country, it is well appreciated.

  26. Theresa Villegas (verified owner)

    I don’t usually do reviews….however…I did a bit of research on bell tents, yes there were cheaper ones, ones that had tons of complaints along side them. I didn’t want to replace anything on something new. I didn’t want to throw my husbands hard earned money out and wish I would have just done it right the first time. So I called Stout Tents and spoke with Nick. He was patient with me with all my concerns and questions, and steered me in the direction of the PRO. He assured me it would be shipped out by the end of the week, as it was on back order. In fact it was sent out and made it to me in time. I had also purchased the footprint, which had been overlooked, but not a problem….Nick over nighted it to me and it arrived on time before we left camping. I was so impressed with their customer service before I had even opened up the tent. When I arrived to the tent site hours before my husband, I figured I would try to put this bad boy up with the help of an older child of mine. I can hardly believe how simple it was to put together. (it was heavy and I used my husbands golf bag holder to wheel it from the car). It only took about 30 min. to put up, only because I had to tie all the stake guy lines on tent, otherwise it would have been less. It was so spacious! We had 3 queen blow up mattresses inside and still had plenty of room! They need to add business cards to their shipments…I had so many people want to know about this tent, I was told by passerbys…”thats the best tent I have ever seen!” Thankyou Stout Tents! I will now get to have more wonderful memories with all my children and grandchildren. Absolute perfection!

    Love my new tent! Perfect for glamping! Nice big tent & really good quality as well! Thank you!

  28. Trampus King

    So happy with my new stout tent. Heavy duty, high quality materials. Took my wife and I less than 30 min for the initial setup. We will be using it for Texas ren fest in two months, can’t wait. Will update review with pics.

  29. Julia Wild

    I absolutely LOVE my tent!
    I took it to Burning Man and had the most epic tent set up on the whole playa! I had a queen-size bed and fluffy rugs and solar string lights… all the bells and whistles. I got so many questions and compliments about my new bell tent that I ended up making a video about it and watched a few of my friends buy it too! such a great company with a high-quality product <3

  30. Matt Jensen (verified owner)

    We love our Stout bell tent! I did many hours of research before purchasing and am so happy with our Pro model! The workmanship and quality are excellent. Our first trip out we had severe rain and we remained bone dry. The 5m has tons of room for our family of 6. The kids love the tent. The bell tent stands out with it’s awesome style and functionality. Customer service is awesome! We are so happy with our decision to purchase a Stout bell tent!

  31. Jeffrey Grab (verified owner)

    Excellent, durable tent! As a park ranger in Montana, this was my first season in the pro-series stout tent. It has held up to snow, hail, high winds, days of rain, and sunshine. With wall insulation and a small propane heater, it’s currently keeping me warm during 20 degree nights. After 6 months of continuous use, it’s still waterproof (although I recommend a rain fly for UV, dirt, and bird poop protection). I highly recommend it for long term camping setup in any weather conditions.

  32. Jake Fowler (verified owner)

    I conducted a good bit of research to find a canvas tent that would be durable and suited for Pacific NW summer spring/summer weather. Customer support is great and I was able to get a laundry list of questions answered. Solid facts about how the tent would hold up in my intended location and what maintenance would need to be done. Great quality canvas! Easy to set-up and take down.

  33. jennifernord (verified owner)

    We have had our tent for a few weeks now and have been very happy with it so far. Looking forward to many years of use!

    Just took our tent out for the first time, with kids, and all of our first time winter camping. It could not have been more enjoyable!! We were super cozy with the stove and loved the ambiance our our little home. We all loved being able to get out of town and just spend some time together as a family. Set up and tear down was easy…even with kids. WE were bummed on our ride home because we didn’t want our little getaway to be over. The kids (and us) keep asking when’s the next weekend winter camping trip? If you love being outdoors- GET ONE!!

  35. Jeff Szielenski (verified owner)

    I setup our tent on a mountain at 3200 feet elevation. It has been up for about a month now and doing well. The canvas is pretty heavy duty. I got the 5M and think it’s a good size for two adults and a kid. You could fit more people in there but if you like a lot of space, it’s perfect for a small family. Recommend.

  36. lucio menegon (verified owner)

    great design and a quality product. i waited to get this tent (4M Pro) from this company after researching a few others out there in the same ballpark. this one is the slugger and hits the homer. got it set up and in use almost immediately. completely fit my needs and very sure will yours too, if what you are after is a very thoughtfully designed tent. they are stitched in China, but done so very well and all repairs, advice and support are 100% USA – and that is a very important element.

  37. John E Kolozsy (verified owner)

    I have been camping for many years and have gone through 6 tents in my lifetime. I recently decided I would like to try winter camping. Upon reviewing canvas tents for 6 months I finally made the leap and purchased the Stout Pro Series double wall tent. I have had the tent for a full year and have used it on 4 occasions, 1 being in the winter. I could not have designed a better tent and the quality is second to none. The tent handled perfectly in all kinds of adverse conditions; extreme cold, high winds (40-55mph), and hot summer days. This is the ultimate all season tent, my dream tent. What really separates Stout tent is its staff. I have called on several occasions; inquires prior to purchase, accessory purchases, etc. Each time the staff was able to answer all inquires. Furthermore, the staff was happy to discuss my applicable use of their products to offer additional advice to better my camping experience. It is clearly evident that the staff has a great deal of pride and passion for their products and services. If you love the great outdoors go with the best, Stout Tent. Whats funny is after all of my reviews I don’t recall ever seeing a single negative review or anything less than 5 stars. I have never come across that for any product or service in today’s online market.
    Thanks Stout Tent!

    WOW! Where to start? I guess at the beginning. I contacted the best customer support I’ve used in decades with questions about custimizing my new tent. They were extremely helpful and willing to do just about anything I could want from them. They really care about their product and those that wish to purchase it. Seems like I got either an email or phone call from just about everyone there with great ideas and helpful tips. The tent? I purchased the ^M Pro and honestly I couldn’t have chosen a better tent. I am a senior citizen living out my life’s dream of living free which for me means living in the forest as part of nature. My new tent goes a long way towards making that very comfortable. It is so BIG! Plenty of room for all the things I need. The quality of the materials used is second to none. I did inspect every inch of my tent and their are no flaws anywhere. I want you to know that I have disk problems in my lower back which prevent me being able to do a lot of strenuos things butI put this tent up all by myself with very little problems. The people at stout tent were nice enough to send me an extra bag so I could split the weight by placing the ground sheet, poles, and stakes inone bag and the body of the tent in the other. I have an extra step of putting the ground sheet backtogether with the tent body before erecting it and it still doesn’t take long at all. I love the simple design I look forward to this journey in my life and thanks go out to everyone at stout tent for helping make this possible for me.

    Super quality! Been using this full time as our living room (has our rug, couches, and wood stove in it). Super comfy and sturdy. We constantly get 50+ mph winds and this thing is a champ. Been through several rain storms, as long as the guy lines are tight no problems.

  40. Peter Vanderberry (verified owner)

    I had been thinking of getting a canvas tent for a while, and finally decided that it would be worth the investment. I couldn’t have asked for a better tent. Even in heavy rain, and windy conditions it holds up great, looking forward to winter camping here in Vermont.

  41. jaysonasch (verified owner)

    Wow. Just…wow. We have recently received our 5M PRO series. Everything about it screams “The Real Deal”! From the design to the materials to the build quality, I have never encountered a tent quite on this level. Stout’s customer service was easily reached and happily addressed all of our questions. The shipping was very prompt and it arrived all the way up here in Canada within the week. The first set up in our yard went very quickly and smoothly. The included instructions seem sparse at first, but the actual set up is quite intuitive so once I was underway they were actually all I needed. Once set up, the sheer size was impressive. The tear down and repack was just as simple. We can’t wait to get out and use it for some late season camping in a few weeks and look forward to using it for many years to come.

    Lots of space inside these tents and well made. Plenty of space to move around. Very interesting bug guard design that does work well. Be careful not to touch the tent when it’s wet or raining out, otherwise you’ll get soaked.

    I got a Winnerwell stove to go with it, but the triple wall pipe didn’t fit through the stove hole very well. Ended up ripping the heat resistant seam off so it would fit.

    • Stout Team

      Hi RJ! Thanks for your review! I’m curious if you’re still having issues with getting wet when you touch the tent when it’s raining. Did you mean the inside of the tent? That shouldn’t be happening. If so, please reach out to us so we can troubleshoot what’s going on there! Also, the stove jack is designed to be adjustable, but does require cutting. There are videos on our website and YouTube page to help you with this.

    This tent truly is amazing. Purchased this tent for hunting camp. Set up was so easy. Snowed like crazy for 2 days, then a river of snowmelt under the tent, but everything was perfectly dry. We heated the tent with a small propane heater and stayed very warm with no condensation issues. Plenty of room for a couple of 6’4″ guys and all of our gear. Best purchase of the year.

    Excellent quality. Huge attention to detail. Definitely recommend if looking for a canvas tent.

  45. bellenberger (verified owner)

    Amazing tent! Very roomy. My family of 5 fit nicely with cots for everyone. We did a camp trip last October and the tent performed perfectly. There was some rain and everything inside stayed dry. Can’t wait for summer to use it again for a lot of trips.

    This tent is a terrible. The canvas used is not meant for outdoor use – whether short term or long term. I had this explained to me by a local canvas company that has been in business for over 50 years. They showed me actual canvas that is supposed to be used outdoors, and it’s much more robust. Also, this company does not stand behind their products. If you run into any issue, they will ship you a tiny patch and leave you to fix the issue on your own. Forget about shipping it back to them for repairs, they want $660 for that and say it’s a long lead time. I’m not the first person to run into issues with this tent and this company. Save your money and buy from another company that uses appropriate materials and does stand behind their tents.

      Hi Jeff,

      Thanks for your feedback. It’s unfortunate that your opinion has changed so drastically from your review of 4/07/2021 in which you stated that your tent had been “up for about a month and doing well. The canvas is pretty heavy duty…”, ,etc.

      Long-term use is not what our tents are designed for, as we try to make clear on our website. They are recreational camping tents. While a lot of our customers use the tents for long-term purposes, including most commercial glamping operations in the U.S., it requires a major commitment of time, knowledge and resources to keep tents used this way in working order. We try really hard to educate our customers on our long-term use policies by calling them out on the website in several places and sending a follow up email after purchase with a long-term use guide that includes a note on long-term use.

      Our support team has worked to troubleshoot your specific issues, including sending your patch kits to repair 5 holes in your tent. That is an unusual amount of wear for a Pro DW tent, but these things happen and we’re always ready to provide support! These are the same patch kits that we provide to our large wholesale customers who are maintaining hundreds of tents annually. We are always happy to provide more as needed.

      We understand that you spoke with a single canvas company that led you to believe that this tent was not to be used outside. It’s unfortunate that you were misled that way. Our Pro series tent is used by many people to live in, for recreational camping for years in a row, by businesses that support events and glamping weekend after weekend, and in a variety of other ways.

      That being said, canvas tents are for everyone, and you may be more comfortable with the easier maintenance that comes with a nylon or other synthetic material.

      Thanks again for your feedback.

    We love this tent! It took just under an hour to setup and will certainly get easier with each time now that we know the process. It’s spacious, the two doors allow for excellent air flow throughout, and looking forward to getting the awning which will provide additional shade on hot days. Unfortunately there is a slight rip in the canvas after the first use (a long weekend) however it’s very minor and I’m working with customer service to see what can be done.

    Overall we’re very happy we went with this purchase!

    We purchased our stout tent to summer in and couldn’t be happier. The quality is great, the customer service was amazing with great communication. I highly recommend these tents.

    After a bad experience with another tent company, we chose to go with Stout Tents and are so happy we did! My family and I have been living in our Stout Tents now for nearly a month. The tents seem well made, and I love the double wall feature! I have to say, my favorite part about these tents is probably the people behind them. The customer service at Stout Tents has been fantastic! They have patiently answered all my questions. When I had a problem with the setup that I couldn’t figure out, even after multiple emails back and forth to the company, I got a call from Katelynn Stout herself. She FaceTime’d with me and helped me get the issues figured out. Customer service like that is hard to find these days! I’m so impressed that I’m already planning my next order (some accessories for my tents).

    I forgot to add one thing on my review and couldn’t figure out how to edit it, so I’m adding a new review… Old review quoted below for reference.

    There is one negative I’ve found with the 16′ Pro Series bell tent… When the canvas doors are open, but the bug guard doors are closed, there is a gap where the zippers on the bug guard doors meet. The gap is about 1 square inch. It isn’t a big deal for the bugs, but I’m concerned about snakes. I’ve had to stuff the gap with a rag to ensure that nothing can get into the tent through this gap. While this isn’t a huge deal and I still really like my tents, I feel that this shouldn’t be necessary on a tent that is as expensive as these are.

    My original review, which is still valid:

    My family and I have the pro series 5 M tent. We had our daughter’s pack and play inside and an air mattress and sleeping pad and had plenty of room. The tent is very easy to setup and take down. If we had to do it again we would of considered the double door tent because of the extra air flow it would of created during the hot day for my daughter napping inside the tent. Many people around the campground commented about the tent. We are very pleased with the tent and look forward to getting the awning for it and stove.

    Just set up my pro series 5m. Very durable and spacious.
    Quick and easy for 1 person set up. Looking forward to camping with the family, leaving the tent up for our 4 month winters As a base camp on our property.

    Purchased the 4M pro tent and I’m very happy with the product. The quality of the tent and ease of setting it up are both very nice. I’m happy with the size of the tent, it suits my husband and I very well with sleeping space and room for a chair or two plus a small table.
    We’ve only set it up in the backyard so far, but it did very well with a rainstorm and we enjoyed hanging out in it; looking forward to do some cold weather camping this winter!

    We have owned our 5M Pro Double Wall for about 2 years now. We are a family of 5 with 3 little ones and this tent provides us a safe, comfy, dry, and roomy living space while camping. We have used it in improved campgrounds, the national forests of Missouri and Michigan, and plan to take it thru the Rocky Mountains this coming summer. The tent does not leak and holds up really well to weather. One evening it held up with little regard to a storm that came in off Lake Superior. If your looking for a canvas bell tent – this is the one.
    We have recently added a wood stove to make our winter camping more comfortable. We also added some floor matting to it and even project movies on the side of the tent wall on bad weather evenings. The kids love camping with this tent, so for me – its money well spent.

    I have owned my Stout Tent, 5M Pro for a year. It is on my mountain property at the top of a ridge. It has withstood massive windstorms, bears, kids, dogs, rain, snow… you name it. The customer service we have had since purchasing is out-of-this-world. I can’t believe what they have done for us, when the wind has been a major challenge. Not to mention the rodents – every time I have contacted them, they have surprised me with their help and generosity in keeping my tent tip-top. I am SO glad I decided to purchase my tent from Stout!

    I ordered this tent in 2019, just before COVID hit, and have had the opportunity to use it twice since then (I wanted to make sure I had tested it out well before i left a review)! I have a bad back and wanted something that was going to be easy for me to put up with minimal help, and so far, this tent has been amazing. It’s easy to put up, easy to store, and has been great to camp in. I have camped in cold weather and warm weather in it, camped solo and with a friend, and it’s been wonderful in all situations. I’m happy I bought the 5M Pro Tent, since I do often share the space with other people, but it’s been such a comfortable experience, and I’m looking forward to testing it out in the summer with the walls rolled up for ventilation. I highly recommend both this model and this brand to others. If I ever need to buy another, I’m going with Stout Tents!
