Great tent for the price

I bought this tent 2 years ago.

I normally don't take a tent, just use a hammock and overhead tarp, but needed something for when my adult son, and his dog, go along. We have used it on 4 trips in all different conditions in the Sierras around Lake Tahoe. On a mid summer trip it ventilated well, even with the fly attached. On a late fall trip, when a dusting of snow was present in the morning, it was pretty warm. Two months ago we did a 3 night trip in Desolation Wilderness. The first night there was conmsistant rain with high winds. I would estimate there were steady 25-35 wind with gusts of up to 50+. Frankly, I was scared the tent would come apart. Some gusts really moved the sides of the tent. It held together. Had a few,'very few, drops of water make it inside the tent. My guess is it was due to the fly coming into contact with main tent mesh.

Pros:
Big vestibules.
Great price for what you get.
Very durable.
Breaths in the heat but warm in the cold.
Waterproofing

Coms:
Weight. A bit heavy for backpacking but, relative to equivilamt tents, it's in the ballpark.

Overall, it's a steal for the price.
