I've had this tent for about four months. So far, the only camping I've had a chance to use it for was winter camping. Understanding that it was not a 4-season tent, I was curious to see how it (and my sleeping bag!) was going to hold up. I would say that the temperature was around 0 to 10 degrees.
First of all the setup for this tent cannot be any easier. Just stick the poles in the grommets at each corner and snap the clips. No pole sleeves to mess with. I can't speak to the needle stakes because I left them at home and used some sticks covered with snow to anchor the tent.
I was not expecting this tent to be warm and it wasn't. But, I was hoping for good ventilation which I got. When I woke up there was a little ice around the mesh where my head was but not a lot. I've read some reviews from people saying the ventilation for this tent was poor, so I guess I'll have to see when it gets hot out.
All in all I would definitely recommend this tent. I was lucky and found it on sale. To be honest, I am pretty sure I would not have paid $250 for it. But, if you can find a good deal I say go for it!
