Perfect except for....

First of all I will say that my 4 star rating is based on the fact that I paid a little over a hundred dollars for this tent.
Also-I bought this tent for car camping and took it last weekend for two nights with my wife and was comfortable inside with a queen air matress but this would be a little snug for more than 2 people.
The GOOD-lightweight, very easy to set up, tons of interior pockets-A+contruction and attention to detail. Waterproofing is excellent, stayed bone dry during a rainstorm. Also, completely bugproof-netting is top notch and zippers close airtight.
The BAD-The doors are a nightmare-the only way in or out is to crawl on your hands and knees. This is true for most tents but this tent has the lowest doors I have ever seen. In addition, the shorter support poles are directly above the doors and can and will snag you when entering and exiting the tent. Also, this tent is top notch in terms of quality and construction but I have to say the material is very thin-you do need the footprint or a tarp-in additon I would not recommend this tent for extended backpacking as I could see it developing tears if set up on rough terrain, but for grass or car camping it is a great tent.

In closing, besides the door issue I would like to see the entire top of the tent made from the netting, the top white part is opaque so their can be no stargazing and I was supprised how stuffy it got in the tent (especially with the rainfly).
