I love this tent! I got this at a super discount clearance price, and wasn't expecting a whole lot, but was very surprised. The two pole design is so easy to set-up, and it's no problem in the darkest of night. It fits two people snugly or one person and a dog. It collapsed on me in a few surprise storms, so be sure to use guy lines in wind and rain. I literally left this tent set up in my backyard in Montana all last winter and quickly wadded it up when I moved. I didn't get around to unpacking it for a few months and expected to find mildew and all sorts of funk, but nothing, it was still in perfect usable condition. The fabric might not be as strong as other higher priced tents (I got a small hole in the floor my first night in it), so take a repair kit if you're backpacking, but a few holes are well worth the savings. The condensation has proven minimal compared to other tents I've had.
