Nice little tent for a little family.

I bought this for backyard/car camping and very short backpacking trips with my boys, who are 5 and 8. Compared to the 2-man tent we'd been using, it's a veritable palace, but I would sleep three adults in this tent only if they are very comfortable with each other. (It does fit our three adult-sized Therm-a-Rest pads without overlap.) It's tall enough to sit up and play in, and the fly with a vestibule for shoes is also a plus. Set-up is very easy. The boys and I had it up in less than 10 minutes the first time out -- and it would have taken half that without lots of "help". ;) It's also light and small enough that I can easily carry it in my pack for overnight trips.
The tent does not come with a footprint, and you will need one. A tarp will do, but ALPS sells a footprint designed specifically for this tent's shape. I would recommend it.
