We used this tent about 5 times over the course of about 3 months last summer, and were thoroughly impressed with its performance. It’s great for car camping, and even light enough to pack. It’s plenty sturdy in strong winds and always kept us dry even in a downpour. It has great ventilation on hot nights and as a result, doesn’t have a problem with condensation on cold nights either. The tent is in “like new” condition except for one spot on a mesh window that has a little tear in it. I took a closeup shot that you’ll find in the pictures.
It looks worse than it really is, and could be easily sewn together with a thread and needle. Other than that, the original stuff sack was very thin and got a few tears in it. So i have replaced it with a much stronger one from my north face tent.
All of the poles and stakes are as straight as an arrow and all of the zippers work perfectly. There’s even a cool gear loft which you can see in the pictures.
