Difficult to set up

Reviewed by Mountain Maiden from Hesperus, Colorado on Friday, June 1, 2012
I am (still) looking for a tent to replace my current tent that opens like an umbrella and is on it's last legs. I attempted to set this up in the backyard, in a slight wind, by myself. After fussing with it for a while, I decided that it was intractible for one small person to set up and decided to return it. The poles are long and difficult to align properly and jump out of the base pins while you are tring to attach them to the clips. In addition, the fabric looked flimsy and likely to tear (like the other Alps tent I have did the first time I used it.) It would probably be OK for two people to set up, but extremely difficult for one.
