I have used my Seedhouse 1 on a several trips now and I must say I really like this tent! Great quality and easy setup although complete setup requires too many pegs! On the positive side, you can't beat the weight of this tent for the price! It's nice and long (I'm tall) and has lots of shoulder room.
The only downside is the fact that it requires a ton of pegs for best setup.If you were desperate, it can be free standing but would be slightly claustrophobic! The vestibule is very small but I found I had enough room inside the tent to stow my boots and some gear beside my mat. I would also have preferred a darker fabric because the early morning light really lights this tent up!
The front entry might be an issue for some people but there is adequate turn-around room inside so not a problem for me. I deducted one star for the excessive number of pegs but this is really a great tent!
