This is a great three-season tent for those who don't have a fortune to spend. This tent is made by Kelty exclusively for Dick's Sports and runs around $110. I have used it for about 25 night of camping in all weather and never had a leak.

Setup and takedown time is quick and easy. I've had no trouble setting up or breaking down in the dark. It has color coded fly buckle so you get it right the first time.
