The Helios Hydro Grow Tent is 24” (wide) x 24” (deep) x 36” (tall). It is made with thick, 3/4" diameter powder-coated metal poles. There is also a crossbar that can be used to hang lights and ventilation. The material is made of highly-reflective Mylar film, and 600D tear proof material. It is double stitched, and 100% light proof. There is also a viewing window that allows you to see your plants without opening the main door. All the vents are double-socked to cinch up tight. It is made to keep odors and CO2 inside, and pests and light outside. This also comes with a removable floor insert, which is also made from Mylar-backed nylon. This product has large zippers. The grow tent is easy to install. No tools are required when installing.
Flap Doesn't Get Stuck in Zipper
Many of the tents that I've reviewed have issues with the flap getting stuck in the zipper. This is not the case with this grow tent. Here is what one person had to say about the flap and the zipper, "The flaps is about 3 inches long so it keeps the tent light proof better, but the cool thing is that it is impossible to get the flap stuck in the zipper. I cut the flaps of the other tent as the kept getting stuck in the zipper and it was quite irritating."
Easy to Set Up
This grow tent is easy to set up according to reviews left by customers. Here is what one of the customers had to say about the set up, "The actual tent arrived as promised, contained all parts, was easy to set up, and works as designed. There are no evident flaws and my plants are flourishing inside."
For the price this is a good buy considering the quality of tent that you are getting. The majority of feedback on the price were similar to what this customer had to say, "You can't beat the price for a tent this size."
Small Amount of Light Leaks Through Seams
One problem with many of the grow tents on the market, is that light leaks through the seams and/or zipper holes. This grow tent is no exception. Some people said it was no big deal and nothing that a little duct tape couldn't fix. Still it's a flaw in design to have any light coming through. Here is what one customer had to say about the light getting through, "This item has light leaks in all of its seaming."
Helios Hydro Grow Tent Conclusion
The Helios Hydro Grow Tent is a quality grow tent priced reasonably for what you get. It is easy to set up and the flap doesn't get stuck in the zipper like it does with so many other grow tents. A small amount of light does leak through the seams but nothing major.
