Great Gift Ideas for campers, families, and the out-doorsey.
On our most recent camping trip we changed locations three times throughout the trip. Each time we had to fully take down the tent, pack it in it's bag (it never fit fully), then setting it back up. It was a two person job the whole and took over 30 minutes on each end of our trip. It was a lot of work, and we half considered not moving our camp at least once.
I had a friend and fellow blogger help me set the tent up for the first time. We quickly laid the tent out on the ground. The Base Camp 6 is apentagonal shaped tent. You unfold the 5 corners and lock the side bars together. Standing in the door way you pull the drawstring pole system up towards you.
The drawstring pole system has two "hubs" a top and bottom hub. You simply pull the cords until they meet and you use the push button to lock the cords into place.
Since the Base Camp 6 uses the drawstring pole system there are no internal poles to take up space. This makes the Base Camp 6 open and spacious, including having a high ceiling. I could even stand inside without having to duck!
The Base Camp 6 is great for camping, or without a fly it could be used for parties or even taken to the beach. It is light and easy to assemble. This is definitely a great gift idea for anyone you have on your list who loves to camp!
