  • There are a few tips and suggestions to remember when considering the Qaou Adventure Tent.
Tent Tips:
  • Tip 1: The tent does not include a footprint.
  • Tip 2: It’s better to get a universal MSR ground sheet instead of the polyester tarp ground sheet that’s sold with the Qaou.
  • Tip 3: There is only one zipper on the “fly” part of the tent doors, so there’s no way to ventilate the tent from the top.
  • Tip 4: There is plenty of mesh for ventilation, but the green fly sits close to the body and needs extra stakes to add separation. Extra stakes are included.
  • Tip 5: There are not many guyline points, so the tent is not the best for windy locations.
