Zero ventilation

I was searching for a good light weight tent for backpacking that would last a LONG time, this fit the bill perfectly. 3 person (2 person+gear), good brand, good price. My brother and I were so excited to use this on our 30 mile trip. We went the 2nd week of Oct so the nights were what some would consider "chilly" So it was perfect conditions for condensation. Knowing this, I cracked the vestibule on the bottom expecting all the mesh to help the tent breath. Well with two mouth breathers we woke up to a rain forest in our tent, the next night I opened the top of the vestibule which did help but still a good amount of condensation. So after the trip I knew this was now a 1-2 season tent for me, or so I thought. I just got back from a trip down to Florida 70s in the day high 50s at night guess who still had condensation issues even with the upper portion of the vestibule open and only one mouth breather. So now I pretty much have a tent that I never want to use again, and am in the market again which I never thought I would say this soon.
The overall quality of the tent is very high and the setup is fairly simple, so if you dont typically have issues with condensation this is the tent for you!
