Light, good use of space

The light weight and higher sidewalls attracted me to this tent. I am replacing an A-frame Eureka Timberline 2 (a workhorse design that hasn't changed much in decades), so I am mostly comparing this tent to that tent. The setup is a bit awkward because all the poles are connected together and long. One person can set it up, but it would work better with two, especially if it's windy. The directions have no pictures. They could be clearer. For example, the orange pole goes into the orange webbing loops. I kept looking at the webbing loops in the corners, but they meant the loops higher up. Once you have set it up once at home, it should be fine in the field. The bent poles increase the usable space (vs. an A-frame). The vestibules are not generous, but are adequate. I haven't used it outside yet. The floor looks delicate. I plan to use it for car camping and will bring a tarp. If you're backpacking, and don't usually bring a tarp, that may be an issue.
