Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new

Summary

Easy setup, storm proof. Great summer tent, but not so a 3-seasons tent.

Pros

  • Easy setup
  • Waterproofness
  • Light for a 4-person tent
  • Ventilation.

Cons

  • Need at least 4 more pegs
  • Small vestibules
  • Too much ventilation for a 3-season tent???

Could set up the tent by myself if I wanted to. Great stability and storm proof. Ventilation is ideal for a summer tent, not so for a 3-season. Lots of inside pockets for girlfriend stuff, but the door vestibules are a bit small for the tent size.

Encounter freezing temp and lots of rain during mid April 2013 in the Gunks. Tent is a little ventilated, get a warm bag if you intent extent summer.

Unfortunately, on setup we observed a pinhole in a corner of the tent???

Great for 3 persons, but a little tiny for 4. Otherwise great tent. Design could be upgrade to a convertable tent (3+ seasons, with zipper panels).
