Good in warm weather, car camping

A snap to set up, love the color, these drab colors nowadays are ok if you're trying to be discreet but give me a nice bright color to get stuck in on a rainy day. Plenty of room for two, nice and long, could reasonably fit a big dog too. Or three slender, uncomfortable people could wedge in ok. Of course you want something lighter for hiking but a lot of time we are just car camping so I got this to be roomy inside and great for star view. Only complaint is the velcro on the flap over the zipper just gets in the way, I keep having to pry it apart as I unzip, I don't think it's even necessary; and the walls are so soft, that mostly you can't unzip the doors with one hand, you have to hold the fabric with the other hand, or the wall just stretches and the zipper won't get going? A hassle if you're holding something. A little thing but you know, kind of a pain when you just want to toss something inside the zipper quick and you have to fiddle with it. Also just, the bucket of the floor edge doesn't come up as far as I think it looks like in the picture, it's just a few inches above the ground, and the downside of all that terrific ventilation is there's no reason for the wind or blowing rain not to come zooming in between the fly and that top edge. Nearly gave it three stars but in regular decent weather and for what it is, and the price, it's a dandy comfortable tent.
