The first tent we bought was visibly free of any defects, it was easy to set-up and very roomy inside. Well designed. However, we got caught in unexpected 50mph gusts and when one of the nylon straps ripped off the bottom corner of our tent, the stability was compromised and the tent started crumpling under the assault of the winds. We attributed the disastrous experience to the severe winds and possibly a faulty nylon tether, because the tent was holding its own until that strap became separated from the pole. The second tent we bought appeared to have a few holes in the bottom corner, but nothing serious or worth causing some concern. We went camping in the forest of Idyllwild because we didnt want to try our luck in the desert again with the same kind of tent. Even though it wasnt meant to rain until the next evening the temperatures dropped to 32 degrees and it began raining very lightly at midnight. By 5:30am we were soaking wet and freezing cold. We love how easy it is to set-up this tent and we love how roomy it is, but I cant bring myself to recommend this tent.
