I'm impressed with the well-designed details of this tent--the included gear loft, well placed stretchable transparent panels at the top of each door, the additional velcro pole attachment points (that can be fastened after setting the tent up), ample outside guy points for adding additonal lines if...

I am an infrequent camper, and I have only used this tent once, but it worked fine. I appreciated that the tent itself was made mostly of netting - so that when sleeping in very hot and humid conditions it allowed a breeze to flow through. Although it was raining all night, the rain fly kept the water out but the air flow was decent. There were no problems, but of course many more uses will be required to fully evaluate this tent.

Went solo car camping for two nights in the Adirondaks.Tent was easy to set up,roomy for one and well made.My only concern in the future would be the zippers,so I took care when using.Also,this is not a three person tent..it would be cozy for two.It did not rain while I was there,so I can't report about that.

Easy to set up. Like the two doors. Stood up well in a hail storm. Just right for two - would be a little tight for three. Need to remember to flip the door to the fly to the side before exiting after a rain so it doesn't drip into the tent.

Takes about five minutes to set up and really kept the heat in (which was a good thing.) I am a five foot eight female and my boyfriend is six foot seven and we were both very comfy in mummy sleeping bags.
My boyfriend stored it in his backpack over a five day hike and it was very light. It has openings on both sides and one pouch on the inside for eyeglasses, clock, watch, whatever. It is about 6 inches by four inches. We used the rain fly and that was super simple to set up.
It may feel "delicate" as it is quite light but it is very sturdy. Not tall enough to stand in but I we don't camp to stand in a tent.
When and if it restocks.....buy it! It is a great deal!

As soon as we got this tent we set it up in the living room to check it out. It was a super easy setup, the tent is so light and you can tell by just touching it that the materials are quality. Can't wait to put it to use outdoors!
It really depends on your budget, if your broke a 10$ tarp will work wonders.

You can use any footprint as long as it is slightly smaller than the floor of the tent so water doesn't pool on the outside of it.

They make one for this tent. It is called floor saver.

I just did a search online, and found many other online stores carry the footprint for this tent. I wish Sierra Post Trading did because I'd rather order from them. Here's where i found mine on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/ALPS-Mountaineering-Zephyr-Floor-Saver/dp/B003GXUYLS
