    In terms of setting up the tent, one person can set it up easily in about ten minutes or so, including the rain fly. My wife and three kids and I slept in this comfortably, but they are nine, eight and five years old so not all that big yet. The thickness of the tent bottom is a bit on the thin side. I would have expected a bit more quality material from Marmot. The tent poles are decent quality but bend awfully easy based on the design of the tent and the way the poles are positioned. As long as the bend of the poles does not affect their integrity it's not that big of a worry. The most negative aspect of the tent is that even with the two vents on the rain fly opened, a large amount of condensation built up on the inside of the rain fly overnight, to the point where it was beading up by morning and started rolling down the inside of the rain fly to the ground. As long as you don't shake the tent too much I believe the condensation should run down the rain fly and not drop directly on you. However, I am disappointed that the condensation built up to that point. The rain fly should be equipped with better venting. Overall, I am happy with the tent. It's not the best, but also not the worst tent out there. However, with a name with Marmot, I was expecting a bit more in the quality and overall feel of the tent.

    Have yet to pitch this tent, just received it. The price was right at 50% off, all the parts are here, and the quality seems very good. This tent will be used for canoe camping on rivers and boundary waters so not concerned with weight. The main requirement, and it's too early to tell, is does it keep the rain on the outside.

    We set this up inside our house the day it came in and the whole family was excited about it. It's long enough for my 6'2" husband to sleep in it without touching the sides. Our daughter had plenty of room to stretch out in all directions without kicking us too! It was much taller than expected though which will be an adjustment to get use to being able to stand up in a tent while camping. Definitely not for ultra light family camping, but a great starter tent for family camping with a toddler and dogs. Oh and the pockets are plentiful and awesome! Can't wait to take this camping in Texas and the humid tropics of South Carolina!

    I bought this after a camping incident where a thunderstorm brought a wind burst of 80+ mph for over a minute and 40+ mph winds for nearly 30 minutes. This tent survived well while some expensive cabin tents were shredded or blown down. Love how easy this one is to set up. Nice size with excellent stability,

    bought this tent 2-3 years ago upgrading from a 2 person tent so we could sit up in the tent without my head hitting the tent ths tent did just that with lots of room and not so cramped. the rain fly works and has always kept us dry its fast and easy to set up and the poles are thicker than our 2 person tents and with the extra tie downs was able to make it through a windstorm in ND with 60 mph gusts. its not a backpacking tent unless you have 4 people to split up the load as its a tad heavy and bulky when packed down but it has served it purpose on any canoe trips we have been on.
    My only gripe and reason for 4 stars is that the two black poles bend a tad too much and some of the pole segments have an arching set to them.
    I likely wouldn't purchase this tent again and would continue the search for the perfect gear.
