Not what I was hoping for.

I just bought this tent recently and was a bit disappointed. I really liked the design and the concept, but it just doesn't seem to work out. The big issue with condensation in this tent is because this tent doesn't breathe! I've only camped in it once, but it wasn't raining, it was hot and sunny. The inside of the tent never cooled down. I slept with the door completely open and my head practically hanging out I was so hot. Another issue I had was the velcro for the poles. I set the tent up and took it down three or four times, and every time the velcro snagged the mesh and messed it up. My last complaint is with the footprint. It really is too small. The corners of the tent all hang off the footprint. I really wanted to like this tent so it's a shame I wasn't happy with it. All in all, not a bad tent, but for the price it should be a great tent.

How can you complain about heat while sleeping with the "door" open. This tent literally can shed the entire front half of it's "fly" to open up the sky to complete mesh.

And your footprint should/must be smaller than the tent, otherwise water collects under your tent. I own this tent in the earlier yellow version, which appears to be the same and love it for what and why I purchased it. Very roomy 2 person tent for long backpacking trips.
