what we *really* think about the ac infinity grow tent

When you evaluate tents by quality, AC Infinity’s Cloudlab Advance grow tent is arguably the best that money can buy, and at a reasonable price. The tents are made with high quality materials in the United States of America, including the thickest canvas and a strong steel frame, that put it in the high end of the market. These products have become a favorite within the home-grow community as a great value that lasts.

    ac infinity grow tent kit features

    AC Infinity grow tents, for all the quality and features, are priced about the same as a mid-tier tent, but the brand doesn’t seem to cut any corners. In fact, its main competitive advantages are the all-steel frame and very high density canvas weave that put this one on the top of our list. Standard features like mylar inner lining, cinching ports, an observational window, and spill tray allow you to have the most control and best experience when you grow plants indoors.

    heavy-duty density canvas

    All AC Infinity tents are made with their 2000D oxford canvas weave (D for denier [pronounced din-eer], the width of fabric thread), a denser weave than the average 200D to 300D, and even more than Gorillas 1680D. Such a thick fabric holds up better against the regular wear and tear, reducing the possibility of puncture. The dense canvas is air and light tight (it even has a center layer of lightproof material), creating an insulation that ensures the interior climate remains contained.

    diamond mylar inner lining

    The interior of the canvas tent is lined with diamond-patterned mylar. Mylar is a reflective fabric that looks like aluminum and makes use of light that hits the walls and would otherwise be absorbed if not for the shiny material. A diamond pattern on the fabric redistributes light more efficiently than a smooth material does, reflecting it back in multiple directions. The mylar surface also helps keep the tent clean because it wipes down easily.

    all-steel construction frame

    One of the things we love most about the AC infinity grow tent is the all-steel tent frame and connectors. In addition to being made with high-quality metal, the poles are larger than average, adding to the whole tent’s sturdiness. The strength and durability added allows the tent to hold almost twice as much weight as other brands: AC Infinity tents have a weight capacity of 150 lbs, more than enough to hold your grow light, fan, and ventilation.

    inner ribbon zipper stitching

    The zipper can be one of the trickiest parts of a grow tent to keep from leaking light. Not only does the AC Infinity line of tents use super dense canvas material that doesn’t stretch and tear over time, the zippers are a sturdy quality that pull smoothly and don’t leak light. The company uses an inner ribbon lining around the zipper seams to reduce light leak as much as possible.

    future-ready design

    AC Infinity grow tents have a light-proof cable management port on the outer side of the tent to mount a control panel, integrating a new level of technology to the grow tent experience. An aluminum mounting bracket can be attached so you can program the fan, temperature, lighting, and other environmental controls from the outside. The AC Infinity controller can be connected remotely with an app, which also allows you to review metrics and collect data on the interior environment.

    observational window

    A standard feature, the grow tent’s observational window lets you check in your plants visually without disrupting the interior growing environment. Sometimes you just want to give them a look to be sure their color isn’t off, that their growing medium doesn’t look too dry, or to make sure there isn’t anything else out of place. Since you can avoid opening the tent and disturbing the temperature and humidity balance, as well as not giving the chance for any spores or pests to enter, the observational window is very handy.

    waterproof floor tray and tool bag

    These grow tents come with a waterproof floor tray made of canvas and lined with mylar, so it’s as reflective and as easy to wipe clean as the rest of the interior (even easier since it’s removable!) A floor tray is a standard grow tent feature because it’s so helpful in catching spills and dirt to keep the tent clean and eliminate the chance of leaking. Tents also come with an interior tool bag so you can store the tools and notebooks you need whenever you go inside the tent all in one place.

    ac infinity grow tent pros and cons

    pros and cons

    Pros

    • High quality materials – An ultra-thick canvas and sturdy steel poles give the AC Infinity grow tents a durability to rival its competitors. This brand is respected and appreciated for raising the standards of grow tent quality, which is why we rate it so highly!
    • Top-tier quality for mid-tier price – Despite a denser canvas weave and thicker frame material, AC Infinity products are competitively priced at about the average price range for grow tents.

    Cons

    • Indiscreet packaging – the company name is on the package, which may draw attention in states where cannabis growth isn’t legal.
    • Small light leaks and zipper wear over time – despite its high quality, wear and tear may be difficult to avoid when you use a tent regularly. Material isn’t always perfect, either, and low level light leakage at pinholes or along seams seems to occur in some units.

    common questions

    how to set up ac infinity grow tent?

    AC Infinity grow tents are easy to set up. The tent’s frame poles snap together at most parts, creating secure connections. The canvas tent itself is one large piece of fabric, and is easily wrapped around the bottom, sides, and top of the frame once it’s assembled.

    how long do ac infinity filters last?

    Carbon filters made by AC Infinity are designed to last up to two years, or 18 to 24 months. The filters are made with steel and high-grade charcoal that absorbs odors and particles to keep air in the tent interior, as well as the room it’s situated in, clean and breathable.

    Final thoughts

    The high quality materials that AC Infinity uses for its grow tents result in, arguably, the best value on the market. Customer reviews speak to their great experience with this brand, which is why we recommend it, too!
