You get what you pay for

Bought this for occasional family camping trips. Comfortably sleeps three with room to spare. Started off doing okay in the rain, not great, but okay. After a year and a half, on our sixth use, the door zipper blew out on it and a golf-ball-sized hole ripped in the bottom near one of the pegs. The hole wasn't a big deal in the big rainstorm that we weathered, but a door that wouldn't zip was a deal breaker. Nevermind all the rain that came in through the non-existent door, we were eaten alive by the mosquitoes that wandered in for a tasty treat of human blood. A tent should be able to see more than six uses in 18 months without disintegrating, even one as inexpensive as this. We've been quite happy with other ALPS Mountaineering gear, but wouldn't recommend this one.
