Absolutely fantastic. It can be pitched in a variety of configurations and when pitched right is a very weather proof shelter. At first it might take a little longer to set up, but once you get the hang of it it goes up rather quickly. It pitches with or without trekking poles. Without them it's a glorious open shelter providing enough room for 3 in a pinch, and possibly more. I like it!
