Easy set-up, well made, lots of room, good features for your $. And DRY!Stayed DRY in heavy rain and some 15-20mph winds. Easy for 1 to set up, but if windy you'd definitely need 2. The directions aren't great if you haven't set up many tents, but it's super easy once you've done it. Guy lines are all supplied. Just tie them to the guy-loops on the fly(and the fly is velcroed to the poles at the guy points which is GOOD). There is a high vent on the back that can be guyed out for excellent venting, high and low. 2 lrg side windows have solid inner zip panels, and the vestibule is what I really like. Leave shoes where they'll stay dry OUTSIDE! And I can almost stand up straight (6'2") under the vestibule). Only con is the stakes are cheap.
