Feature rich tent at an affordable price

Note: It's the same model as the "Genesee 4".

Pros: It's a 4-person that packs down smaller and is lighter than all the 3-person tents I've used (e.g. Alps Aries 3 and Stoic Templum 3.1). It's very affordable too. Has 2 doors. 2 vestibules, and comes with a gearloft. I really like how small the poles collapse - not sure why more manufacturers don't adopt that idea.

Cons: The construction looks questionable. Some of the stitching on the seams looks very loose and I found many stray strands upon first setup - so I'm not sure about longevity. Also, the vestibules are uselessly small. The fly essentially drops from the top straight to the ground, leaving very little storage space.

I picked it up for $90 so I can't complain too much. I thinks it's a great tent overall and I'm excited about backpacking it with my family.
