Slumberjack Daybreak 4

Field Notes: Set up on the river bed of the Colorado River, this tent kept testers warm in high-velocity gales. But the tent truly shined when stars were bright and skies were clear.  A full mesh body makes this Slumberjack a premier stargazing tent. 

Pros: The tent is simply designed, and makes a strong case for car camping families or hunting parties. The full mesh body is a fun feature when the stars are shining and makes the Slumberjack a low-cost option. 

Cons: The poles are long and heavy; they could easily be considered jousting lances. The two top poles seemed superfluous and there is minimal pocket space.  While testers prefer 2-door designs, the single-door design works with the Daybreak because of how campers can orient their sleeping bags.

Favorite Feature: The mesh body for the win; once testers were lying on their backs and staring at the stars, they couldn’t have been more stoked. 

Tester Quote: “Affordability and stability make this tent a decent option for families, and the mesh makes it great for muggy summer trips when keeping out insects is the only real concern. Stargazing is phenomenal as well.” 

Bottom Line: A cheap and almost industrial design makes this Slumberjack a fine choice for casual car campers who want to fall asleep to the twinkling of constellations.
