I received this tent for my sixteenth birthday and used it every night on our road trip thru Oregon/California. It works great, quick set-up (once you get the hang of it, it's easy), and really light. I could set it up in just a few minutes, even in the dark.
If you don't stake down all the sides, then you get a a droop in the middle, which collects condensation and then it all transfered to me while i slept. ugh. But I learned and if you stake down all the sides, you don't get a droop.
One pole broke when I tried to move my tent, but I read on the reviews that someone fixed their pole with duct tape, so I'll try it. Or replace the pole, possibly.
There's really not much room to move inside it, but that's kind of the point. For example, in a survival situation, you need less room so you can keep more warmth in. It's actualy not so bad, because I was able to fit myself, my little dog and my big dog inside, with my backpack and supplies by my feet, quite comfortably.
