Not too shabby

This tent is a great deal for the cost at STP. The first time I took it out, there was a steady rain all night. I stayed dry & toasty. The little window flap in the rain fly that props open with the velcro-tipped stick is an excellent idea & works great. It's not quite light enough to be a true backpacking tent, but is great for car camping or float trips. It has excellent visibility for star gazing when the rain fly's not used. And in case you can't see in the photos, this tent has 2 doors - one on each side.

My only complaint: water pools on the top of the rain fly unless you use a guy line tied to the triangle of fabric on the front of the tent. Even with a small, ominous pool of water directly above my head all night, I stayed dry. This could eventually lead to a leak, but I'll use a guy line in the future if I know it'll rain.
