First camping trip since my own childhood. I loved the view at night w/o the rainfly. This tent isn't really big enough for 2 adults, a 2 year old, and a 4 year old unless you all sleep on the ground. A queen mattress fine in there, with a little less than half the tent floor left over. A queen and a twin or full would probably fit okay.
I didn't scotchguard (campdry) the tent.. like most tents the seams do need to be sealed to be truly waterresistant. If you pull back the seam covers you can see lots of holes the needle made while stitching. For us the weather was good so i'll get to it later!
I'm 5'7" and could stand inside w/ lots of room left. The tent stakes are just thin sticks of metal, next time we go I'm getting better ones.
This tent does go up and down EASY. Assemble the frame and then hang the tent up... stake it... thats about it. I can do it alone.
Its very sturdy too. The poles are pretty nice, aluminum w/ a chain inside.
The storage bag is expandable... I didnt even fold the tent correctly (we left in a RUSH) and I still got it all fit in the bag.
The window zippers worked great. The door zipper was easy enough once I got the tension right, I had the front posts staked down too far apart. :þ
All in all if it was 2 foot wider I'd be happier, but its my own fault for buying a tent thats a tad too small for my family of 4.
Other than the size issue I like my tent & am very pleased w/ how it functions.
