I did a LOT of research before buying this tent. There is no other tent that I could find that has this many features at this low price point. Aluminum poles, full rain fly with two vents, two doors, heavy duty zippers and floor, six feet of headroom,and not too much screening for camping on cooler nights. By having hooks instead of sleeves for the poles, the set up is really fast, and the tent can even be taken down in the rain with the fly still on. I set up this six man tent in my livingroom in five minutes by my self (and no, I did not stake it down). After taking it down, everything folded and rolled up very easily into its bag. Shipping was also very fast from Overstock.
I used this tent in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area last summer. I loved the spaciousness, especially the stand-up head room, and the straightforward set-up. The full-coverage fly should keep it dry. It's higher than I expected; so using the tie-outs on the fly is, I suspect, important in countering high winds. I would always look for a sheltered spot because of the tent's high walls---the price of the great head room.
Liked this tent and found it for a good price on Overstock. It got blown over in moderate winds the first day we put it up and the pole bent. Called *** and they said since we used it (for just a few hours) nothing they could do. Called Overstock.com and they immediately took it back and sent us a shipping label. Will not buy*** again, will use Overstock.com absolutely - they're customer service is outstanding
Wish I could say more about tent, since I do not have room to setup inspection will have to wait. Had tent out of bag and seems to be perfect fits the description to a T. Ordering and shipping was a breeze, YES I will buy from them again.
