I bought this tent to use along the Wa. state coast in April. We had wind gusts up to 30 mph and 6"+ of rain in a few hours. The Rothom 3 held up very well. No leaks or bent polls. I really like the gear pockets along the inside walls. The reflective guy-out loops were useful as well. We used all of them. The only downfalls to an otherwise excellent tent system is the lack of detailed instructions (I'm a tent newbie) and good quality stakes. You will need to practice setting up this tent to get the rainfly on straight, connecting all the clips. The tent is designed with very tight tolerances. It is a 2-person tent with room for gear. Plenty of room for your boots to stay dry under the vestibule. No condensation issues, even with 3 people in the tent. Overall, a good buy.
