I quickly set this tent up as soon as I received it. Being my first time ever purchasing or setting up a tent, I was amazed at how easy it was. I didn't need any instructions as it was pretty self-explanatory. I still can't believe how much space it has. I'm 5'6" and 120 pounds, so this has plenty of room for me, a friend and our gear.
My concerns purchasing this tent were the lack of a footprint and the weight. I purchased the Marmot Pulsar 2 footprint on sale from another website and it worked out great. As for the weight... I was very tempted to go ultralight like all the cool kids are doing, but durability is a big concern for me and the thinner the material, the less peace of mind I have. I found this tent to be a great compromise. It is well-built, packs down small, has a trail weight of less than five pounds and has a heck-of-a-saleprice.
