The Price Is Right

I set the tent up as soon as we got it to inspect it before we needed to use it. It was incredibly easy to set up- could almost do it blind-folded. Without field testing it, this is what I can say say about it so far: Great ventillation without the fly-Love the mesh sides. Double doors, double vestibules are good. I don't mind a little extra weight if it means a good nights sleep, so I bought the 3 man for myself and my husband who is a big man. It's definately roomy enough in width for 2 people. At 6'2" it's barely long enough for him, but will do. I bought the tent because I have always been happy with Marmot products, and since this was such a good price, I think it's a good tent for what I spent, and will be fine for our purposes, but it's definately not one of Marmot's better tents. I was a little disspointed when I put the fly on. There is a 3rd pole that supports the fly. The fly is not reinforced well where the pole pushes against the material, so I wonder how long it will last. I was also dissapointed to see that the rain fly has no ventillation-something I would have expected from a Marmot tent. So I expect there will be condensation, but we'll see.
