Great little tent for the price. This was a cost effective alternative to lighten up my pack. I found the tent to be long and wide enough, just not high enough to sit up - but it's not supposed to be.
The tent was a bit difficult to set up as the poles would collapse or stick in the tunnel they had to be fed through. No directions on staking the tent cover. Leaked in the rear and had no room to even sit up. Only recommendable if you are hiking in the northern climbs of Antartica.
This tent is the perfect size and weight for multi-night kayak trips. Easy to set up. Problem: the top zipper teeth separated and could not be repaired in the field. This is really the only way to enter this tent other than the small end at the head of this tent. Sad as we were very happy with these tents.
Works great! Although, after one crazy night of rain and I mean mini-flash flood crazy it did start to drip through to the bug netting underneath. Very compact. Very light. Comes with down riggers for windy conditions but a little extra string might be a good thing.
