I thought I had found THE tent for me. I want room to move around plus a good size vestibule that allows me to cook in the rain.

I thought this tent sucked! It leaked all night long and to cook in the vestubule in the rain it must be zippered shut. Also, when you unzip the vesibule it allows water to run into the tent.

I took it back to REI and the salesman said, "I wish you would have talked to me before you bought this thing." But, as usual, REI was great to work with.
