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.

The MSR Backcountry Barn rocks enough interior room to sleep four adults comfortably and a tall interior height that allows you to stand up fully so you can stretch out before hitting the sack. You might be tempted to take a four person tent when you go camping with the whole clan, but the Backcountry Barn packs down to a size comparable to that of many three person tents, so packing space isn't an issue. Consider this luxury base camp living for the whole family.
