If you are shopping for an outdoorsy man, you already know why a tent would make a great gift for him, but this is not a tent, it is the tent. What you may not have considered though, is that a great tent makes an incredible family gift as well.
There are very few things that make for a better bonding experience than camping. Being away form modern technology and spending time in close quarters for an extend period of time can really be therapeutic.
When purchasing something that will essentially be the only thing protecting you and your family from the elements, acting as your home when you are in it, it needs to be from a company you trust.
Wenzel has been making outdoor products since 1887. That is not a typo, not 1987, which would still be a pretty good reputation, but 1887, well of a century of experience. To me, that alone is enough to make me feel safe putting myself and my family in the hands of Wenzel and their products. There is just no way a company can be around that long if they are not doing things right.
The Timber Ridge Cabin tent is the crem de la crem of tents. It's spacious size(16' x 10') allows plenty of room to sleep up to 10 people.
We are just a family of 4, but having a plenty of space is essential. Our kids are very active, they do not like to be confined, and hubby and I do not want to be confined into a small area with cranky children. With this tent there is enough room that everyone can have their own area if needed. Separate corners can be a lifesaver at times.This tent even goes a step further with a Sewn in divider to create separate rooms.
There is a multitude of other fabulous features that ensure that this tent does not feel too confining. The fact that it has 2 doors is wonderful. Both the front and back doors are "D" style doors with inside flap zippered windows allow for more access in and out during the day and give the tent a much more open feel. There are also Front, back and side zippered windows with inside flaps.
For an even more open space, the seam-sealed fly is removable. There are mesh roof vents as well, so you can get fresh air even when your tent is fully closed fro the night or for inclement weather. That is very important to me. I must has some sort of mild breather problem, because I often find it hard to breathe in enclosed place, under(loose) blankets, etc. so I need plenty of fresh air or I feel like I am suffocating.
Another vital component is that is is easy to set up. With 2 kids underfoot or wandering off, we cannot waste time struggling with something difficult to assemble. This Timber Ridge tent features corner elbows, fast feet and an incredibly convenient center hub to make setup fast and easy.
There is nothing you would want in a tent that isn't included. There is even an E-Port for electrical cord access. Every inch of this tent is created with the utmost care and attention to detail that on Wenzel can provide. Even if tents in general were not a good gift, this tent would be an amazing gift.
I got this tent as our big family gift this year(I always get us a family gift that is for all of us), I am so excited for us to go camping together. I know the kids will love it. My son talks about camping all the time and would camp in the backyard practically every night if I let him.
I cannot wait to see his joy the first time we take a real family camping trip. It will be so nice to get back to nature and spend some real, uninterrupted time with just our family. I think that time will actually be the greatest gift of all.
