First impressions

Came in a nice bag, workmanship was good, came with a ground cloth. Set was ok, did it in the wind, because of the two doors could not get a taunt fly as there was no adjustment but did not use the additional guidelines. Bent the no bend stake, don,t use your foot. Stakes were better than most tents. As I just set this up in the lawn and left it there fo r a few hours in 10 to 15 mph wind with out guy lines I stood ok. The good: Seam stitching and taping appeared good, only two symmetrical poles symmetrical shape, nice size, ok weight, clips connect with a twist, full fly, no plastic window. The not so good! More seams than needed, the fly has two colors, with a second color a small piece around the bottom, why put this extra stitching in the fly? Fly side mid points should have buckle adjust tie downs. Bath tub floor has a seam right at ground level all the why around (though very well stitched with a protective additional piece, not just taped). overall a well made tent. My biggest concern in tents these days is the making of a stylish tent with new widgets, and not what is needed, a simple strong design that can take a beating. Why weird bent poles, plastic windows, weird shapes, too many poles, no full fly, wierd vents in the fly to let rain and snow in, too many pieces of fabric, clips instead of sleeves for the poles, things that make a tent strong. This tent is one of the few that is pratical.
