Great as a 1 person tent, maybe 2, not 3

Its best to set this tent up at home in the light before having to in the dark the first time if unfamiliar with this type. A footprint was not provided with this purchase, but a simple 7'X 5'poly tarp worked just fine. Setting up in the wind was a challenge but soon learned to first stake the smaller foot end of the tent corners in the windward direction just prior to placing the footprint down. Then stretching & staking the larger head end corners down. Placement of the rods is extremely easy with the hooks rather than sleeve system. Though attaching the rainfly to the rods was difficult due to the lack of valcro strip length provided for that purpose. The tent vestabule worked excellent, very spacious & kept what little condensation there was away from the occupant space & the venting system is great as long as the tent is positioned in the proper direction in the breeze. All-in-all this tent was perfect for myself & my gear on the motorcycle trip with a sleeping pad & bag I was very comfortable & satisfied.
