Ordered this tent because we were looking for something tall enough to walk around in and roomy enough for our sleeping cots and clothes. Also the rain fly covers the windows and doors. We are only sleeping 2 people but wanted a roomy tent for rainy days. Can even put our chairs inside as needed. This tent is perfect. The bottom is made out of tarp material so I put down a quilt for noise factor and comfort. It works great.
I went camping with my two sons for 3 days in this tent. I have to say that it is a good-looking tent which does well against heavy rain. It is simple to set up (about 5 mins) and take down. There are 4 pockets along the inside walls and another compartment in the top, which is nice. I don't mind that the shell zips one way and the inside compartment zips opposite. It did well to keep the bugs out as well. There are also overhand areas to store gear, shoes between the tent and shell. Now, for the issues. It comes with 2 doors for the shell and the tent which comes out to 4 zippers total. One of the zippers needs extra attention when zipping or it will not work properly. I put that zipper towards the rear and tried not to use it much. I recommend buying a tarp and cutting it to the size of the tent in order to provide an extra water barrier and to prevent water from pooling between the tent bottom and the Tarp. Also, the aluminum stakes are junk. Buy aftermarket ones that will not bend. Overall, I would buy this tent again. The problems can be mitigated and it has nice features: space for 3, place to store bags, pockets for headlamps, etc, and it kept us dry through a 4 hr thunderstorm I'm FL.
I picked this tent out without any prior knowledge of camping, and am glad I made the purchase. I liked how everything was so compact and came in it's own carrying case (although, a bit hard to get everything back in again-- but, it can be done!). The tent was VERY roomy for two people and our gear. It would certainly be comfortable for three. No bugs got in at all! And it kept us dry from a light rain. The floor is made of tarp-like material, which even extends up the sides for a few inches, so I'm certain we would have stayed dry if the rain puddled. Only minor problem was that I think they packed the wrong instructions with the tent. However, my boyfriend and I figured it out in no time flat. There were also a few stray strings hanging off of it, but that wasn't a big deal. I'd definitely recommend this tent to anyone who is looking for a quality tent at a good price.
