Excellent tent for the money

I haven't field tested this tent yet (winter here), but I set it up to inspect the quality. Seams on floor are taped, it has a lot of storage pockets and shelf included, and overall construction and materials seem very good.

I'm 6'3" and this tent has great headroom and has room for a pack to be stowed at my feet when I'm fully stretched out. Materials seem durable, stakes are fantastic, and the poles are light but durable. Two doors is key, and each door has a zippered window, which will be great for nights without the rain fly.

My only concern is the plastic clasps that grip the poles. They seem a little flimsy, but I'm hoping for the best considering the rest of the build quality. Also, the stuff-sack is not very good for backpacking—it does not cinch very tight. For the price though, you really cannot beat this tent.
