It's good for the price, but spend more if you want less weight, easier set up, or a free standing.For a one person tent at a low price the materials are good, weight is OK, inside space is snug for me at 6'2", and set up takes some learning. It is possible to pitch this tent as just a rain fly (no floor and nothing to keep the bugs off). It is not free standing, and the interior tent can not be pitched without the rain fly. That's the reverse of most two wall tents. I learned to pitch it quickly after two rounds, but I'm a smart cookie. The interior tent is suspended from the rain fly and single exterior arched aluminum pole. The rest of the structure is maintained with lots of stakes (and two little shorty poles at the ends). If any of the clips and elastics holding the interior tent to the rain fly get disconnected when you take the tent down it can be a bit of a puzzle to get it pitched. Spend more on something else if you really want light weight or a free standing tent that can go without the fly.

better than a coffin...too many stakes needed for taut pitching, diamond shaped floor plan, small vestibule, no gear loft, can pitch the fly only but not the tent, wtf? better than a coffin but not a condo.
