This funky changing tent is a must have for anyone needing a little privacy while on the move.
It is a bit different than the other tents on our list, as it has an open ceiling and non-square base shape. Generally we feel that the open ceiling is a negative, though depending on your environment, it could be an advantage.
Key Points at a Glance
- Available in black or camo
- Weather resistant
- Has weighted pocket flaps
- Has inside zipper
- More privacy protection than other models
- Open ceiling
- Popped Up: 76” x 30” x 40”
- Folded: 22.5” x 22” x 30”
The PARTYSAVING 6′ portable privacy tent is an interesting choice, and in certain cases, could be the perfect privacy tent.
One thing that makes this tent a little different to many other pop-up changing tents available on the market is that it has an open ceiling. This makes it ideal for those that are tall, or for those who want to use it for an outdoor shower.
However, the shower nozzle can’t be supported by the tent itself, so you’ll need to rig up a different method to hold the shower nozzle.
Inside the tent is a sewn in elastic strap which is great for hanging washcloths and other small items. Assembly can be done in a matter of seconds, and once finished using, the tent folds down into a neat little storage case which makes for easy transportation.
The black color of this tent makes it a bit harder to see shadows through the fabric than some of the other tents on our list today. If shadows are a concern for you, then the PARTYSAVING tent is a good option.
The Bottom LineThe PARTYSAVING tent has a bit of a different feature list than the other tents on our list, with its open top and darker color scheme. If shadows are a concern for you, this may be a good choice, as the fabric is relatively opaque even with shadows. And if you intend to use it for an outdoor shower, its open top may be an advantage.
However, if you are stuck outdoors and need to change, you’re going to get wet with this tent.
If you’re primarily looking to use this for changing clothes, it’s best to choose one of the other tents on our list.
