I have had this tent for about 2 years now and haven't had a problem yet. Its design makes it extremely roomy inside. I wouldn't buy the "pouch" for the roof. It isn't very stable and things fall out easily. Very lightweight and easy to put up. I have had it in some pretty heavy rain and haven't had a problem. It is expensive, but if you are an avid hiker, I would recommend this tent to anyone.
