The Hex by Eureka is perfect for your excursions thanks to its durable construction designed to protect.
After reading all the comments, I still bought it but watched a tutorial on how to assemble it alone. I did it with a bit of help and it was way easier then I expected! I am not an expert at camping. So it it easy when you watch and listen carefully to the tutorial.
Then, the material is so sturdy! We got rain over night and we put the panels inside, held with 7 plastic hooks and rings each pannel. Everything stayed dry inside. The mosquito screen is so tight the nothing can cross it! Not even the wind! Which made the screen house warm at some point. And at the bottom of each 6 sides, there is a 3" extra fabric along so not a bug can come in through the bottom! Not a detail is missing! The only con would have to be the pegs. Some were metal and some were plastic. The plastic ones bent. But we were in a hard surface. And finally, when came the time to disassemble it, it took 5-10 minutes! And everything fitted back in the bag after folding only once! We love it!
Frustrating assembly process, deal breaker.
This tent is a bit of a disappointment for me. There are a couple of easy design issues that should have been resolved in product development. The tent portion and the metal frame don't completely separate, which could have been resolved with a carabiner between them. I could do this, but I shouldn't have to. The poles should include some of those spring snaps to keep them connected during assembly. Without them, you need a second person for assembly. The tent frame is wide enough that you can't hold one section without another pole collapsing at the opposite end of the tent. I bought this tent instead of one of the square style quick assembly shelters, because of the stability, but the complicated and frustrating assembly is a deal breaker for me. The rest of the tent is as you'd expect, and the quality seems fine. I haven't had any rusting, as the above poster has, and I've used it twice. Finally, this thing is really, really heavy.
Overall good product
I've had this kitchen tent for about 3 camping seasons. It was the closest one that matched my needs and pricing sensitivity.
Pros: After 3 seasons, multiple dogs hanging out in it, it doesn't have any damage on the screens:). It's held up in many rainstorms and I'm happy to have this tent
Cons: I gave it a 3 on 5 for the quality because I found that after 1 usage and rainstorm, parts of it were slightly rusting. The rusting has not gotten worse. I wrote to the company at the time and they said it was normal. I was disappointed in it.
Other than that, it's heavy, not so clear to put up the first time and you need at least one other person to help you put it up.
Overall, I like this tent and I'm a bit harsh in the review. Honestly, I would review most other kitchen tents as a 1 on 5 to give you context.
