What customers say about the Topeak Bikamper One Person Bicycle Tent

[Rating:5/5]

There was only one review (paraphrased) for this tent. The tent is cool !!! It goes up really fast and easy when its time to camp. Probably the biggest thing I have noticed so far is when you insert the wheel into the foot of the tent and pull on the wheel to make the top of the tent tight, you have to use a little muscle because otherwise the tent will sag badly and collect rain.

As for the size of the tent, I am 6’2″ and I am comfortable in the tent, however if you are any taller than me this tent is not for you because when I am laying on my back, my head is almost against the head of the tent and my feet are all the way in the far corners of the tent. If you sleep on your side in a semi-fetal position you may be able to get away with being a little taller, but not much.

The Topeak Bikamper One Person Bicycling Tent provides a compact and lightweight shelter when bicycle touring.
