This tent requires careful site selection to work as well as it can. This somewhat limits the tent's utility. It is a terrific little tent though when you get it pitched well on an appropriate spot. Mine has always served me well through very nasty weather, even through 5 inches of very wet, very heavy snow. Ventilation is not its strong suit when weather dictates full fly coverage, but not many tents of this design could do better and it's all about weight and weather-proofness with this tent choice.
