I bought this tent about five years ago at a clearance sale at REI for its price. Not expecting much, it's been through very diverse conditions and has held up well. The only physical damage is in the floor, where a piece of glass made its way through the bottom.

It's a little too tall for high winds, but this gives a nice amount of vertical living space. The rain fly doesn't quite make it to the ground, so it frequently empties on the bottom six inches of the innner tent. The waterproofing keeps most of the water out, but it does get a bit damp around the edges.
