I take it anywhere as long as the activity is not a winter venture. Tent is very spacious, a lot of room inside. The vestibule is also big enough to house the camper(s)' backpacks, wet items, boot, what have you.

I've seen very little to none condensation built-up after spending the night along with my wife inside the tent thanks to strategically placed plenty of ventilation. Although I've never used it under a down pour, I am quite sure it can handle whatever the mother nature throws. Everywhere is seam sealed from the inside. Poles are strong; anchoring pegs are thick enough not to buckle after a few strong hammering punches on them.

The only drawback I noticed on this tent is the fragility of its floor. It's no tarpaulin type material, very susceptible to tear and wear. Flooring material is something like the upper material used to shape up this single walled tent. There is no rain fly as the manufacturer states.

I would recommend using it with a tent footprint. I purchased one. I am spreading this footprint before erecting the tent to better preserve the floor from rocks, needles, sharp branches, etc. I would love it better if Eureka announces a rain fly for it.

I spent about 2/3 of September sleeping in this tent. I saw night temp ranges from 65 to 25. There was only one morning that there was frost on the inside of the tent. That was it. I didn't have any condensation on the inside like I've read about with the Zeus 2 EXO. This tent withstood high winds and rains and there was never an issue.

I gave it 4.5 out of 5 just because I would make some changes, such as more windows. That was the only drawback that I could find. I've slept in many tents and this was by far my favorite. I'm not sure how well it would pack in, since I was able to drive to my campsite. The tent paraphernalia said it was a 4 person tent but I think it'd be pretty cramped if there were 4 people my size. I'm 5'11" and 215.

Design: Three-season, freestanding dome
Sleeps: 4
Ease of Setup: Easier with use. I'm at about 10 min.
