We were sent the Wenzel Portico 8 Person Tent for field test purposes. The tent has traveled through the tough terrain of Arizona and elevated our camping experience ever since. The Wenzel Portico 8 has a 12 ft. x 10 ft. 120 square ft. floor with raised basin and will keep ground water out, it has a full coverage mesh canopy for viewing the stars during the summer season, it includes a full coverage fly with incorporated awning to keep the grueling sun off your back or the rain away from your gear, and a very spacies internal height of 78 in., so crawling around in your tent can be a thing of the past.
This tent is incredbily easy to set up with a 3 pole system, the fly includes already attached properly placed guylines for storm protection, the tent has several gear pockets to stay organized and keep electronics off the floor, a very useful E-port, and ample amount of head space for most. The zippered window is perfect for extra ventilation or visual appeal. The internally attachable mesh gear loft is useful with your Luci® lantern and allows illumination for the entire tent. Stakes to secure your tent are included.

Some of our favorite features of the Wenzel Portico 8, the front awning created using the full coverage fly because it’s really great to keep yourself shaded from the sun or your gear out of the direct rain. This tent also has a large door for easy entry, and the zippered mesh window is perfect for checking on camp or creating more ventilation. We believe this tent to be a great addition for family and group camping. It includes plenty of built-in features, comes in its own carrying case, allows for an especially easy set up and weighs only 21 lbs.
