Large and in-charge

We use this tent for family camping or as a large base camp tent for group excursion trips. Set up is a two person job, but it is very easy. It took less than 2 minutes to get the tent up and another two minutes or so to get the fly on. The tent is nearly 7 feet tall at its apex allowing for ample standing room. The interior is seriously roomy and can easily fit six individuals relatively comfortably. We have plenty of room for an air mattress, crib and area for the three year old to sleep. The vestibule is roomy enough for multiple backpack and/or a dog. I have not yet had it out in heavy winds, but I assume you want to try to avoid really heavy wind given the height and the size of the walls. The only "rain" we have encounter was 20 mins of sprinklers in a backyard campout - not a drop came in given direct buffeting from multiple sprinklers. The inside has a number of nice pockets and amenities for storing goods. Overall, this is a great tent.
