Voted 3/5

I have a good thing to say about this tent, and a couple of bad things. First the good: the reason I bought this tent is that it had lots of vestibule space. I can put my pack, boots, wet cloths, etc. outside the tent and still have them covered by the rain fly. And because there are two vestibules, I can put my gear in one and have my dog sleep in the other.



And now the bad things: (1) This tent doesn't do well in the wind. Because it's long and skinny, you have to orient it just right so that it cuts the wind. If the wind shifts and hits the tent on the broad side, then it will blow away if you're not in it! (2) The tent doesn't ventilate very well. The first time I used it I opened up the roof ventilation and cracked the door. When I awoke in the morning the entire inside of the tent was covered in condensed moisture. Since then I have always opened the door all the way up to avoid that problem. This works fine in the summer, but if you wanted to use the tent in cold whether you might have trouble.
