While most of my camping is done in a smaller 1-2 person sized tents, I found this Summit tent to be well suited for our family of four.
Easy to set up and very spacious. I'm 6'2" and the tent allows me to stand inside with room to spare. Due to the height of the tent, it may be somewhat more difficult to reach the very top of the tent to secure the pole for the rain-fly. Very happy with the fit and finish of the product.
No rain here in CA this season, but it should hold up quite well in a rain storm.

The seams leaked on this tent the first night it was used. The excessive fabric around the seams allows the water to pool on it and then is drawn into the tent where the stitching is. We were very disappointed as we thought we'd found quite a deal with this tent!

Bought this for occasional family camping trips. Comfortably sleeps three with room to spare. Started off doing okay in the rain, not great, but okay. After a year and a half, on our sixth use, the door zipper blew out on it and a golf-ball-sized hole ripped in the bottom near one of the pegs. The hole wasn't a big deal in the big rainstorm that we weathered, but a door that wouldn't zip was a deal breaker. Nevermind all the rain that came in through the non-existent door, we were eaten alive by the mosquitoes that wandered in for a tasty treat of human blood. A tent should be able to see more than six uses in 18 months without disintegrating, even one as inexpensive as this. We've been quite happy with other ALPS Mountaineering gear, but wouldn't recommend this one.

Not the easiest to set up - definitely requires 2 people. I don't know yet how it stands up to rain but it managed to survive 25 mph winds even though it did bend and lurch violently at times. Easily fit 2 queen sized mattresses.It could probably do with a little more support for difficult conditions but otherwise no problems. Ventilation is excellent.
There is and image of the tent with the fly that it comes with in the thumb nail below on the right. Our shipping rates are based on order cost. For more about our shipping rates go to this link. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/lp2/shipping-policy/#usshippingrates
