It’s a bit big and may not fit into the campsite that you want, which is a con, but once you fit it in the big size becomes a pro.

The Keron 3GT is an amazing all-around tent that when put into its environment performs amazing. When it rains the big vestibule is a big plus and if you have way too much gear you can enter and exit from the smaller vestibule. In bad weather you can put your stuff in the smaller vestibule and hang out with your friends in the bigger one.
Another cool feature is that you can unclip the tent from the outer and push it back into the smaller—best deal and then you have a very big space to cook or hang out with friends in bad weather. If you are one person in this tent you can push back a little bit of the tent and put something like a pulk sled or your bike inside the tent when the weather gets bad.
The 3GT comes with 10 mm DAC poles. It also comes with 22 stakes, and it has 8 guylines.
Overall the tent had some condensation, but is acceptable. The tent has also weathered a few storms including snow, ice, wind, rain, and hail. If you have the money then I highly recommend that you buy this tent!
I believe that Hilleberg is the best tent company for use in the winter, fall, and spring because where I live it’s pretty hot in the summer so the tent heats up (46c). But to point out that it’s not something that can be fixed because then it would take away from the cold weather benefits.
