Review Update: Tuff Stuff Overland Alpha Roof Top Tent

My wife and I have been on an overlanding vacation for the past week, and we’ve spent 5 nights in the Alpha tent, and we have some additional observations to go along with my previous review.

The most important thing: keeping us dry. We have now weathered rain and snow, and in both cases, the Alpha kept us dry. In some extreme cold (24 degrees one night, 29 the next), the tent did a great job of keeping us from freezing. Yes, it was still cold inside the tent, but much better than any ground tent I’ve used.

Keeping the bugs out: initially, I reported that there were openings on the bottom of the tent where it folds that could potentially let bugs in. I found out that there are velcro flaps that seal those holes up. I just didn’t have enough experience with the tent to know this before.

Ease of use: the more we use it, the faster we are with setting it up and taking it down. At every campsite we’ve been to, I’ve had at least a couple of people ask me about it and comment on how much they like our setup. The people who saw us open it up were impressed with how simple it looked.

My wife insists that the Alpha is the best purchase we’ve made for overlanding. She says it’s a game-changer for her, and it’s made camping far more enjoyable for her. I have to agree on all her points.
