Here's what other sites are saying:

The Meramac series tents are all free standing 2-pole designs with shock corded fiberglass or aluminum ferrules. The ferrules are the "connectors" that hold the poles together and use aluminum, rather than steel, because aluminum can never rust. The fiberglass poles are also normally one size larger than normal to offer you a sturdier, stronger tent. ALps uses lightweight but strong polyester fabrics. The walls are uncoated so the tent can "breathe" under the urethane coated fly. The fly uses a pole in the top, which gives you an awning over each door for excellent rain protection. The fly is full length on the sides, not 3/4 length like some others, for better weather protection. The tents even have factory sealed seams on the floor and fly for maximum water repellency. Entry and exit are enhanced with 2 doors, which means if you have to get out at night, you don't need to crawl over the others to get to the only door. The second door is also nice for extra ventilation in hot, muggy weather. The door zippers are a #8, which is one size larger than most, for extra durability. Mesh storage pockets and a gear loft are included to help you keep your gear organized.

For you and 4 of your friends, the ALPS Mountaineering Meramac 5 tent is ideal for enjoying a summer slumber under the stars. Shockcorded 11mm fiberglass poles provide sturdy support. Polyester taffeta body and rainfly are lightweight yet durable. Walls are non-coated so the tent can breathe under the urethane-coated fly, which in turn reduces condensation buildup. Rainfly is full length on the sides; center rainfly pole creates an awning over each door for excellent rain protection. Factory-sealed floor and rainfly seams help ensure you stay dry inside the tent. 2 doors eliminate the need to crawl over others to get in and out. Second door also creates cross ventilation in hot, muggy weather. Mesh storage pockets and gear loft keep small items organized and off the floor. Includes all stakes and guylines. Special buy.
