Today we are looking into one of the top-selling pop up tents currently on the market the Hui Lingyang Pop-Up Tent.
This particular model has pretty good reviews across the board and some interesting features, so we thought we’d put it under thetenthub teams watchful eye!
It has recently been sent to our inbox so many times with camping season looming, so we just had to review it for our readers and see for ourselves if it’s as good as outdoor lovers’ claim.
In this article, we will be sure to confirm all of its features – both the ones from the official details, but also the ones we noticed, good and bad, and see if it can really meet up to our standards of a top pop up tent.

What We Think
Upon our first try at assembling the tent, we can instantly confirm that it is one of the easier tents to set-up, even if it is your first time. The tent comes with steel rods and light-weighted material and with such clear instructions that one person is enough to assemble it.
This also makes it ideal for scout trips for young boys and girls, as it doesn’t take any particular strength to lift it. It is suitable for 3 seasons guaranteed, however unsure if it would stand up to winter camping.
Well protected with water-resistant fabrics, heat-sealed seams and a vented rainfly keeping the water away.
At the same time, it has great ventilation, so even during the bad weather, when all the openings are closed, the interior is still breezy due to the ventilation.
It’s pretty spacious, good for up to 6 people, however, I’d strongly suggest taking no more than 2-3 in the 4 person and 3-4 in the 6 person, purely for gear space and mobility inside the tent.
All in all, not a bad choice both for a family vacation or festival – but maybe not for remote camping, due to its large size and the weight that isn’t really heavy, but it doesn’t beat an ultralight or even lightweight tent so it doesn’t match up well for backpacking or hiking in our opinion.
The only flaw that we can notice is that, despite being waterproof, the tent still isn’t suitable for the worst of weather. If the storm comes, it is better to use extra cords and stakes to secure the body for additional stability, and it is recommended to coat it with waterproofing spray, just to make sure that no water gets through.
However, bearing in mind the price of the tent, this is to be expected.

Our Personal Favorite Features
Easy set-up with metal rods and light material
Definitely the biggest advantage of this product is its quick and easy setup. Even if you don’t have much experience in camping and outdoor life, the instructions are so well written that you can’t possibly make a mistake. We can go as far as to say that instructions aren’t even necessary for someone who is a camping veteran – everything is logically placed and the poles are pre-assembled. Also, when you’re done erecting it, the tent stands strong and firm and for a layman it would probably be hard to believe that it is assembled by hand. All in all, for a semi-experienced camper it shouldn’t take more than a minute to do a full setup.
Mesh ventilation window
The Hui Lingyang Pop-up tent has a large mesh window on both sides, which provides flawless ventilation while also being insect-proof. The hot air is allowed to leave the inside of the tent, so the air stays clear even during the hottest days. Additionally, there are ground vents that allow cold air to enter the tent and provide freshness and cooling. Of course, all those windows can be closed during bad weather, to ensure that the water can’t get inside.
The Durable Floor Material
The feature that usually goes unnoticed is the durability of the floor material. It is made out of same material as the rest of the tent, but don’t let that fool you. It is pet-resistant, as the dog can walk and even slightly jump in it without any damage.
Even if you put it on a bit uneven surface you still won’t have any problems with your sleeping bags; the floor won’t scratch. We used a metal tent bed inside of it, just to test the endurance of the floor, and it didn’t leave a mark.
This is a bigger kind of tent, great for families or a group of campers. It is durable and spacious, which makes it great for 3-6 people who won’t feel crowded in it. It is also good for all seasons, as it is waterproof and resistant, with a firm, durable floor.
With this tent, you won’t waste any time on setting it up. It is designed with pre-assembled poles which allow you to just pop everything in place, without worrying that the sun will set down while you still haven’t set up your sleeping spot. Also, it is adapted so that one person can assemble it without too much hassle.
Electrical Cord Access Port
This tent comes with an electrical port that you can plug into an outside power source, so that you can power up any electrical device inside of your tent. The port is protected from water so it isn’t easily damaged. At the same time, it is fully closable when not in use, which provides additional protection.
Weather Protection System
The tent is made of a double layer of waterproof fabric, which makes it great for all four seasons. It is protected from rain and any outdoor influence, as integrated rainfly keeps the water from getting inside.
Of course, no child should go camping unsupervised, but if you are planning on sending your little ones on a scout trip, this is one of the best tents there is. As we have stated a number of times, it’s easy to assemble so it can be a nice learning activity for a small group of children to set it up.
It is firm, and as such, it won’t easily break or fall, which makes it rather safe. Also, it is spacious enough to hold multiple children without them feeling crowded, and with enough space inside for kids to enjoy some calmer indoor activities such as playing cards.
All in all, if you are a fan of group activities or just a fan of camping – both as a hobby and professionally – this is a great tent for you. It is big enough for most of casual group needs, safe enough for most weather and you won’t need an engineering degree to assemble it, which is an annoying flaw of many otherwise good tents. Also, it is modern-technology friendly, so if you are worrying how can you go a few days without your favorite iPad, this tent has got you covered.
All in all, if you are a family person, a camping lover or a professional hitchhiker that prefers to go on a group adventures – this is a tent for you.
