    I got two of these tents for a recent trip to Kentucky Red River Gorge for spring break. They are a breeze to set up and they are not overly heavy. The price was right and they are the "starter set" gear I purchased for my boys for their first backpacking tents. Both boys are 6'3 and 220 and 240 lbs and they fit in these tents just fine. I did not get the footprint and probably should before another use. We had rain every night and they did not get wet. We did however have significant dew because there was just so much moisture in the air and in the ground I really don't think there was any way to not have dampness. In the morning the floors were damp and the walls of the tent itself were damp. I am pretty new to all things camping/backpacking so I am not sure if an aftermarket waterproofing product would cure that problem or if it is just the nature of things in the great outdoors. I intend to research this prior to future use however. For the price I couldn't be happier. The quality appears to be good as the zippers worked well and as I said set up was a breeze. We had assembled them once in the middle of the living room prior to our trip and set up the first night at 10 pm with the light of head lamps and had no issues whatsoever.

    This tent is just fabulous for the price you pay. Bathtub style floor, two pole set up and full cover rain fly. I am glad I purchased this tent and you will be too.

    The tent was exactly what I was looking for and a great bargain for what I bought it at! Stormed like crazy our first night, and not a drop went through the cover. It's attractive, easy to assemble, and sturdy. My only concern would be that it's not the absolute lightest out there, so if you're looking to do a lot of back county hiking, for one, you may want to invest in another option. However, it is a two person tent!!! If one carried the poles and stakes and cover, and the other carried the actual tent, it's totally manageable!

    My husband and I love this tent. Great for our backpacking trips. It's small to carry and lightweight. Absolutely worth the price!
