Design: 3-season freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: easy
Weight: 6 lbs.
Price Paid: $99
I bought this tent for its light weight and compact stuff size (~6 x 19) so I can carry it in my pack by myself. It has room for a couple plus 1 or 2 dogs.
However, its main drawback is the lack of ventilation. There is a large window in the rear and a small window on the door. It got pretty hot and steamy in there. It's great if you are looking for a high quality/low cost tent. If you have extra money to spend, look for a tent with larger windows.
