I got this tent quite a while ago. It's heavy and it needs to be sewn every once in a while. But it is quite comfy and roomy. It has a nice mesh window overhead and a seperate (really too short) fly. It also has a large mesh window on the door and on one side of the tent. Ventilation is great! The floor is ripstop nylon and has held up well even after camping in the "overflow areas" a few times. 4 people + some gear fit easily.
Downside: it's really too heavy and certainly not geared towards snow!
It's quite a pain to push the fiberglass poles though the sleeves unless two people help.
I wouldn't recommend buying a tent like this, but if you have one hanging around and don't mind the weight (or can spread it around), it's servicable.
Ease of Setup: average
Price Paid: $10
