Here's what other sites are saying:

The large vestibule, easily accessed from inside the Vela I, is roomy enough for all your gear. The door can be raised to offer a view but still protect you from the elements. Ventilation is maximized in this storm proof design. The rainfly can be rolled up from either end, and both ends of the canopy have mesh windows. A hood protected vent enhances the chimney effect. The foot end is aerodynamically shaped and can be completely tied down to face high winds. The head end features a mesh window.

The spacious vestibule has plenty of room for gear storage. In warm weather, roll the rainfly back for increased airflow through the mesh canopy.
