    I have taken this tent out only once so far this season, but so far so good! It appears well-constructed, very simple to set up, and I really like the zip up window flaps on each door. Not sure how it will stand up in super windy conditions, but is still a great tent for the price.

    I recently returned from a canoeing trip of the Adirondacks and we had torrential rain one night. there were only drips from the top vents. Other major brands of tents in our group were swamped. the only drawback is that the fly doors are a bit cumbersome to get in and out of and the screen door swings opens into the tent because of the angle. But it was a good, easy to set up tent suitable for wet climates. The venting was good so it didn't rain back condensation.

    We have used this tent on 2 trips in the past two weeks. Really easy set up and lots of space. It folds down nicely and is lightweight.

    So easy to set up, take down and pack. Plenty of room for 4!

    Outstanding tent for novice car camping duo! Easy to set up, although a grommet ripped out on the first time we opened. (We are contacting Mountainsmith for warranty replacement.) Tent made it through three nights with mild to medium winds on its first use. I recommend this tent to everyone!

    I question how this tent has so many good reviews, but perhaps it is just the type of camping that people are doing. We took this tent out for the first time in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and it collapsed during a storm. I double check to be sure that there were no issues with the set up, but there was nothing wrong. The poles just aren't strong enough to withstand heavy winds. Thankfully we were car camping, so there was no real risk, but I would never trust this tent on a multi-day trip in the backcountry or anywhere that reliability matters.

    I bought this as a replacement for a Cabela Pine Ridge Dome 4 that I had for 15 years. I chose this as it was incredibly light, and would be packed for airplane travel for the 3 of us to use. The weight is fantastic, however the size is small. This would be tight for 3 - I can't see 4. Perfect for two, and I use this tent for solo camping most often.
    It has withstood torrential rains- but be cautious of the door in the rain- it opens directly above the bathtub floor- and if you have gear by the door- it WILL get wet. My suggestion is to keep the fly as closed as possible and crawl in as low as you can go.
    Be careful of the screens on the doors- they seem thin- So I have been extra cautious with zipping.
    The features of the tent are great- nice and breezy- good airflow when needed, and nice and buttoned up when that is needed too.
    Easy set up. Directions are on the bag, which is helpful.

    I got this tent for myself and my 2 children (6 y/o & 8y/o)and our little dog. I was blown away by the actual floor space. Definitely room for us all and our gear. Very simple to set up and tear down. The rainfly is great. Would definitely recommend! I am interested in purchasing another one to have down the road.

    This tent uses very good materials; check out more expensive tents. they use aluminum rods, aluminum stakes. This one does so, also. Went to Joshua Tree for a 4-night stay and it rained 2 of 4 days, on both nights the wind was also very heavy. except for soft ground in one of the 6 spots we staked the tent leading to the stake coming loose, we had no issues. Great Great tent.

    Haven't used the tent yet, but it'll provide ample room for car or raft camping.
