Rated 2 out of 5 by scadian0627 Great tent in foul weather. Didn't leak at all during a huge thunderstorm while the 4 tents belonging to my friends all leaked to some extent. Major downside... absolutely no ventilation. The giant rainfly keeps all the water out, but also acts to keep all the heat in turning it into a sauna, far more then any other tent ive owned before. There are no windows for ventilation or breezes and removing the rainfly is a pain because it is so big. Setup an be done with one person but staking down all 20+ stakes required for the rainfly is a pain and about doubles the ground space required for the tent. I would recommend only if you will be using it in moderate to cooler temperatures or shaded areas where you are expecting large rainfall.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ltfireman Spent a week at a scout this tent was great. I bought the same tent for my son and he had no complaints. Set up is easy even with the added stakes. At night the tent was able to breath and cool you off. During the day it was warm inside, but how often are you in your tent during the day? Great value for the money. Another scout leader has a tent with a similar design and paid 4 times as much and the only difference is the pole are aluminum. Overall very satisfied.
