Rating: rated 1 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $749

The tent is really poorly designed. The poles on top are sticking out such that if you are entering the tent at night, you may get the end of the pole in your eye (height at around 5' 3" to 5' 5"). The floor is not fixed, so there is a lot of wind coming in from all sides.

Also I don't think the single layer design is best-in-class.
