We wanted a tent that would fit on the custom made platform for our sailboat, as it has no cabin of its own. This tent fit perfectly! We are able to put it up while on the boat and do not have to step into the "water" at all. The fact that it is self standing and so quick to erect is definitely a plus. It literally took me only 10 minutes or so without directions, the very first time, and now takes me like five. We have not been able to sleep out all night in it as of yet, but the reviews all say it is very waterproof and it also comes with a footprint, which many of the others do not. My husband and I are both close to 200 pounds each so we wanted the biggest tent we could find that would fit our Alps mountaineering double sleeping pads and us quite comfortable. We will not be stowing much gear in the tent, but it does have several pockets to keep all kinds of stuff if needed, and the large vestibule will keep our porta potty area private from peeping eyes. We had 4 tents on our original list, and this one won out as having the most of everything we were looking for our home away from home. I don't think you will be disappointed! Plus Sierra Trading Post offered a 30% savings over their already reasonable price, making our purchase for this tent through them a sure thing, over the two other online websites that also sold the same one.
