I only have a small K-Mart tent to compare this one with but this was such a massive upgrade, I had to give it 5 stars. I read the reviews here carefully and made sure to guy the rain fly securely. This tent did not leak through 36 hours of straight rain and the size made it comfortable enough for us to retreat to for hours to stay dry. It fit two adults, our 1 y.o.'s pack-n-play, a camp chair and a soggy wheaten terrier.
