Just what I sought

The only reason for four stars is the 'hook & loop' tab that's attached to the fly at the confluence of the long poles. I'm afraid that if they're not carefully attached, the 'hook' part might wear at the fly in winds.

I included color as a value-add because while it's closer to a natural color, it should still be easily seen should aerial search and rescue become an issue. Never understood camouflage tents...

Set up is a breeze: First shot, no instructions, six minutes. Second, three. In the dark, four.

Floor is a bit thin, so consider a footprint or tarp.
