great quality for your dollar!

I am a BSA leader. My last few tents have been Sierra Design. I bought this a few months ago and went on my first campout this past weekend. weather in Florida was hot and humid - no wind nor rain challenge. As others have noted, easy to set up, good room for 2 with dual vestibules and doors. Aluminum poles seem to be of good quality though the ends pull out too easily when extracted from grommets - a little annoying. I'm thinking of putting a spot of glue on the outside of this joint to minimize this annoyance. Quiet zippers, included gear attic, taped seams on fly all speak quality and detail to attention. I was able to unzip the fly-doors from the top to increase ventilation on hot nights. I'm planning to use this one for Philmont next summer and if parents ask, will recommend this tent for their boys!
