I bought this tent specifically for the mesh panels and the price. Comparable tents were much more expensive. I took this camping in late July in Virginia. For the price of this tent, it really is great. My husband and I kept very cool, while the rest of our camping crew sweated in their tents. There was plenty of room for my petite husband and myself - we are both under 5'8'', but I doubt we would want to squeeze a third person in there...it would be really cramped. Plus, he likes to sprawl. :) We unfastened the rainfly clips during the day and rolled it on top of the tent so heat wouldn't build up, and it stayed cool. It rained twice, but we just had to quickly snap the fly back in place and retreat inside. Held up to the rain very well. It would have been great to star-gaze with the rainfly off if there were no threat of rain. Even with the fly on at night, you could feel cool air coming in through the bottom of the tent. Couldn't give a 5-star because there is no footprint made by Marmot for this tent. I purchased one separately, and although it didn't fit perfectly, it did the job. And you could always just make your own. It's a great warm weather tent, for sure.
