not good design

The tent is really poorly designed. The poles on top are sticking out as such that if you are entering the tent at night, you may get the end of the pole in your eye (height at around 5.3-5.5").
The floor is not fixed, so there is a lot of wind coming in from all sides. Also I don't think the single layer design is best-in-class.

Tim, sounds like you are rating this tent without any real experience, just speculation. I would rather hear from someone who actually set it up, and used it in wind & rain, I've been looking at this tunnel tent design for awhile now because of it's efficient design (weight vs space) would like to see sod flaps on the perimeter and a stove jack out the back as an option.

I am serious about tenting.What are the
specifics about this tent? Is there a floor attached and sealed by manufacturer? What is the length, the width, the height? does it have a fly cover? Please contact me, thank you

I don't think Tim has actually used this tent. I recently used it for 4 days in Maine where it poured for 3 of the days. Yes, the awning poles are a bit low, but if you're aware of them it's not an issue. I got not wind coming up through the bottom. The tent body has a 6-8" collar at the bottom that is overlapped by the bathtub floor. We got zero water inside the tent even though it is a single wall design.
