This is a good overall tent. It is very easy to put up and take down. It is very roomy inside with great head room (even for my 6'4" husband). We had our queen air mattress in there along with 2 twin air mattresses (for our younger children) and a padding for our third older child. We were very comfortable. We did camp through a bad rainstorm one night. We stayed dry for the most part, but the sides of the tent and the bottom did get wet (even with a tarp under it). It is not really a foul-weather tent, however we would recommend it for your leisurely camping needs.
Best price ever for a canopy with 4 walls! Much better than hanging 4 tarps around you. Material is the same as the blue canopies we are all familiar with. My only disappointment is that the carrying bag does not have wheels. Even canopies without the extra weight of the walls, have wheels on their carrying bags. This item is not lightweight!
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.
