Great product. You could spend a lot more an not do betterPacks up small weighs in at two pounds. After setting up a few times you realize how quick this shelter goes up. Very sturdy, much more than my two man tent, I would take this in a high wind thunderstorm over my tent any day. I really didn't expect to get this high of a quality product for the price. You could spend a lot more on a tarp shelter but the cost to gain ratio would be very minimal. Makes you wonder why some of the others cost so much. Also this thing is spacious w/ room to sit up in of you aren't too tall. Plenty of room for two persons plus gear

Easy setupI am camping with my son and have my own tent. This shelter if for my son who is 14 and uses trekking poles. It is only 2 lbs and he caries a plastic sheet/tarp that weights 1.5 lbs. So total for his tent is 3.5 pounds with everything. Mine is twice that weight. It works for him and is a little over $100.

Low weight, roomy, appears very strong.I bought this a couple of years ago and have used it a dozen times or more. It honestly weighs 2 pounds. I use it solo, but there is room for two big and tall guys and gear. No floor or insect net of course, but if it is weight you are concerned about this is a good choice. I have not used it in high wind yet, but if you look at the stitching and reinforcements on the many guy lines it appears very strong and well made and designed. I wish it had a mesh pocket inside to put my glasses, head lamp and pocket book in at night: suppose I could easily make one. I use a 1 mill painters plastic tarp for a floor and put a rock on each corner to hold it down. You need trekking poles or sticks, like any A-frame tent, but I have also used available trees so I didn't even need poles. The stakes they give you are light, and while someone complained low quality, I thought they worked just fine. Over all, thumbs up. Price is right, quality of workmanship good, and it easy to spot in the woods.
