...i did have some issues. the shock cord on the main pole broke on first use. on inspection, it was a low grade shock cord. i still was able to assemble it and use it, but it was a major hassle. i have since obtained quality 1/8" shock cordage and re-threaded all three poles with it, and that will last a long time (as long as the poles don't break LOL). the shelter in operation is great. for me it was worth it to replace the shock cords in the poles because the design and idea is sound.
i can see how someone hamfisted and rough can tear the nylon up on assembly; the solution is, don't be...it's you're own fault if you tear the material up during assembly, it's not difficult to do but it sure isn't "automatic and effortless".

The fiberglass poles ripped the nylon sleeves as we assembled this the first time. I thought maybe we were too rough, so we tried to be gentler the second time and it ripped again. It's too bad, because the zipper is good, the pockets on the outside to weight with sand are perfect.

I used one of these as a car camping tent all last week, from icy alpine forest to hot desert. Its best use is an overnight tent for camping. It's simple to set up by one person, stable, sturdy and roomy for two people and gear. The steep sides make it reasonably waterproof, but I added a $5 blue poly tarp as a rainfly for two nights of torrential rain, and a chunk of tyvek as a ground cloth. The tent is nicely designed with lots of nice features like an inside pocket that's just right to keep eyeglasses off the floor. It's odorless untreated nylon, so sensitive noses will be fine in this tent. A wonderful bargain, and nicer than many $200 tents. Five stars.
