How do you fold up the 4 man tent?
I was able to fold up the 2 man tent in the store but I bought the 4 man and can't seem to fold it to fit in the bag. I was able to condense it but it's too big. Please help!

Follow the same instructions as the 2 man tent, only difference is when you stand it up (after the initial folding up) and there is a circle formed at the bottom, put one foot on either side on the frame of the circle at the bottom. This will prevent the tent circumference from expanding when you fold it over. Hope that made sense.

Its quite a bit easier to do with two people but can be done with just one. Stand on one side of the tent and gather each of the poles into one hand. You will now have two loops on either side of your hand. Stand the tent on end whereas one loop will be flat on the ground and the other in the air. With one hand still holding the poles in the middle take your other hand and grab the middle of the loop that is standing in the air. Pull that loop down and in so you are folding it under itself. Now you you have two loops that you are still holding in the first hand that you will lay one on top of the other. Be sure to consider where the elastic is so you can access it to hold everything together. Take care to allow time, when folding, to let air out. Additional fabric can be pushed back in. Hope this helps!

it is tricky for one person, but I found if you stand on the bottom portion as you fold the top down and inward then you will see that it folds together easy enough. :D

The 4 person folds up the exact same way as the 2 person. See the "video" tab on the web page for this product and it shows you how to do it step by step.
