Yup! This cheapo is a favorite of mine. Nice tan color and surround 360° view through netting when fly's off. I suspect it's like the Coleman dome: long lasting and takes a beating.

Although it only has the cheap Taffeta nylon it's held up....except I've never waterproofed it in its long life and now it isn't waterproof....maybe I'll spray it to save it.

Poles are too heavy and if I get around to it I might invest in some aluminum ones or just find another tent like it.

My North Face Slickrock is fine but it'll not compete for roominess with the simple Dome. With shorter (when collapsed) aluminum poles and a better seal this tent would be an excellent backpacking tent....but the fiberglass poles are 27 inches long in section and weigh 2 lbs alone. Still it's only 5 lbs total and has storage nets on sides and the simple hexagon floor plan leaves room for gear after two sleeping pads are laid out.
