We were very excited to open our box with the High Country 63” Premium tent— the packaging was secure and the tarp cover is very durable feeling, setup went well even for just two of us- the actual tent setup process is SO easy.. I can tell I’ll never dread that part of the time we’ll spend camping.. the built in light is a great touch!! Very happy with this purchase and can’t wait to use it soon!!!
Tim and the fellow freespirit crew blew it outta the water.. i needed a 10.5 foot ladder asap.. they made it happen and even shipped it to where i was going.. free spirit is awesome! And i love mybhigh country tent as well!!
We often camp with other families and share meal prep. When dinner time comes around we pull out the Readylight and it illuminates a large area for cooking. Its up high for good dispersion and out of the way.Everyone loves the usefulness of this light. During the day I put it in front of my windshield sun block screen and the windshield so it can charge without wandering off. On a Jeep trip one of the guys had put a plumbing mount on his bumper that the main shaft connected to - great alternative to the full tripod. I am going to make something similar to mount to my Rhino Rack platform to put the light up high. Highly recommend this light!
One suggestion for improvement is to give an option to swap out the white light pods with red or yellow. Will watch the sales and get up to 2 red and 2 yellow pods for the corners.
The description on this lantern was a little 'light', but I decided to take a chance.
The lantern comes with two pod lights (yellow) and the speaker. Just buying those separately would be $110 at regular price. AND you also get the rechargeable base lantern! Now I can swap out the pods and speaker with my big Readlight. Guessing I can daisy chain this to the big light and charge it when using solar to charge the other one - will give it a try.
Light pods are white light - high and low, the color (yellow with the lantern) one brightness, and flash light steady and pulse.
Lantern has a 5,000 mAH battery and a replaceable DC 3V LED bulb.
Light Pod has a 1,800 mAH battery.
Speaker has a 1,100 mAH battery.
Seems solid and bright. Will try it out on our next trip in a couple weeks.Only immediate suggestion I would make is to have the main light be switchable to yellow as well - even one power level for those heavy bug campsites.
The zippers move much smoother the black pvc cover looks nice and clean With a nicer more updated logo
Love its portability and options on the light. Like that I can add it to a bigger set later if I choose to go that route.
This is an absolutely awesome tent! Perfect size for one adult and a dog, perfect for two people if you don’t mind being close. To me this tent feels closer to footprint of a 2 person backpacking tent with more headroom. If you’re looking for ample room this tent may not be for you but for me and my pup it’s absolutely perfect! The setup is so easy sometimes I can hardly believe it, the piston assist make what is already an easy setup even easier! I love all of windows and love how sturdy it feels! I’ve used it a handful of times now in different conditions and I can happily admit I am very pleased with my purchase. Moving from a 55” high country to this new adventure series was well worth it!
First of all, I love this tent and it was a fantastic purchase. There are two things in particular I would like to add to my tent if I could: 1. I'd add a waterproof front door inside the screen just like all the windows have, so that I could open everything up while leaving all the screens zipped. 2. I'd like to add a mattress topper or foam layer to my tent that I can leave in and have the tent still fold up...which would be great if FSR offered one so I'd know that it would fold up properly and would be the correct size. But I love the tent! It's roomy, easy to set up and take down, I love that the rainfly is attached...It's great!!
We broke in our High Country 55" Premium at the Oregon Coast this weekend with plenty of sunshine and plenty of wind and rain. We comfortably fit 2 adults in the tent and a kiddo in the 63" annex with no problems. Set up was easy, annex set-up was quick and straight forward and worked well with our Tacoma shortbed with the tent folding out to the passenger side. It rained a substantial amount the second night and we all stayed dry minus the only snafu we ran into; the rain rolling off the backside of the tent rain-fly dripped through the screen onto my head in the middle of the night but solved the problem by zipping the flap up.
Setting the tent up on a KB Voodoo Max Modular Taco 10" High rack system was kind of a pain since the acorn nuts caused me to have to adjust the tent to the back of the rack by 3" (this is the 58" long rack so shouldn't be an issue on shorter racks). Overall, not a biggie since the tent frames footprint doesn't hang over the tailgate.
We had plenty of people stop by and ask about the company and our set-up and the coolest thing was that we were able to brag about this being an Oregon company! Cheers.
Received my order within 3 business days from the evening I placed my order. Located Denver CO. Tent opens as designed, with ease. Sturdy during rain and wind. Kept me well insulated during a 40 degree night, using a big Agnes down sleeping bag. Ladder supports weight of myself and dog being carried at same time. The mounting hardware could be expanded a bit for Yakima Overhaul HD bars. Also, the handlebar nuts to the hardware are a bit cheap, not completely useful for hand tightening to a degree that's satisfactory. Overall amazing tent, adjust hardware or buy separate for a more secure mounting.
Tim and the crew helped set my M60 up with the Tri-Layer from the 55'' so we could have that extra layer inside the tent. Great addition making the tent more comfortable and providing that extra barrier from the elements. Great addition and customer service!!
Spent our first nights camping this past weekend. It was raining and in the 50s all weekend but we stayed dry and comfortable the whole time!! Adventure M60 fit my wife and I comfortably with ease and we're both taller (5'9''&6'2''). Tent was a breeze to set up and breakdown. Well worth every penny and Tim was great with customer service.
Very well made, super easy and fast to set up.
My only slight complaint is that the memory foam matress could be a bit softer. Very happy with the product.
This thing was a life savior. It started to rain and the annex fit 2 adults a 7 year old 10 month old and a dog. The only thing I don’t like is the way it attaches to the tent.
Awesome product, I cannot contest to the longevity of the product but overall it is perfect. I did 8 years in the USMC. This bitch is legit !
This light has been the perfect addition to my campsite, super bright and great for one some needs to go off for a bathroom break after dark, just grab a pod and go!
Great service, great product. Just wasn’t notified, that I know of, that the tent had to be picked up from a fedex freight facility. No biggie just should notify customers! Thanks!
Absolutely love this set up. From SD,CA moved to Portland area working in construction as a steamfitter park near work have a very small fuel bill and NO rent or hotel bills! The best tent living has to offer
My husband has been wanting this light for over a year and I finally decided to buy it for Father’s Day this year. He’s going to love it! It is great quality and very bright. Perfect for camping!
I have had the tent about a week and have 3 nights in it so far. First reactions is this is a very well, beefy constructed RTT. Two nights have been on a wind exposed outcropping and the tent did great. I did need some help getting it open the first night as the wind was fighting me. One night it got below freezing and it was nice and toasty inside the tri-layer. As it warmed up a bit in the morning I opened the windows just a bit and got some good ventilation. It also dried it out as I noticed some condisation formed inside with just me and all the windows closed up. I got the black tent and a huge perk is that it is very dark inside with everything closed up. No 4:45 am wake up from the sun coming up. The only place I see a little concern is the front door zippers. They seem really good but when zipping the door closed the zippers struggle a bit as they go around the corner. I am sure it will be fine but time will tell. I also wish the ties to hold the tri-layer door rolled up were just a bit longer. I have to pull fairly hard to get them to fit around the puffy door.
I love this tent. It is great and easy to set up. My family of 4 will spend many nights in it by the end of this year. This tent provides a really good night sleep with a comfy mattress and you are off the ground.
As a background I have made a career in outdoor/ adventure education. I have lead many backpacking trips/ worked for NOLS and done mountaineering up and down north and south America. I have many nights under the stars in the last 42 years.
