This is a single serving tent. Use it once and go buy another. My first trip with this tent was wonderful, nothing but blue skies, no rain, little wind, perfect, though it did get a little stuffy when the sun first hit it in the morning.

On the 2nd or 3rd trip, the problems started. It rained and it stormed, the tent leaked. Bad. Big puddles on the floor, not so much where the fly was, but towards the bottom where it wasn't covered. Spent the week before the next trip waterproofing inside and out. On the next trip from hell, heavy rain, big storms, it leaked like crazy. spend about $100 on tarps just to cover it.

If you know you're going somewhere where the weather will be fair, no rain, I guess its a good tent. Otherwise, don't go with Hillary.
