Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Pretty cool tent, love all of the pockets. Sadly, I used it once and noticed a rip in the seam. It is out of stock so I have to return it. It is quite heavy too, but if you're car camping, who cares? I love the hexagonal shape. Its great for an air mattress because there is room on either side. It is a bit complicated to set up too, but practice makes perfect.

I'll make this nice and easy and then you can decide:

PROS: Great price, light weight, very roomy, local Colorado company (for me)!

CONS: Zippers don't glide easily and get stuck often, especially on the flap with the 2 vertical zippers; this flap is very awkward to get in and out of and comes unstaked easily. We were camping in Winter Park, CO and like Colorado weather does, it started to rain, then snow. There is so much open mesh on the top that even with 2 people, 2 dogs and an air mattress, we were still FREEZING!! There was a bit of leakage after hour 10 of rain and snow, but I guess you can't be too pissed about that.

CONCLUSION: When this tent says 3-seasons, it means warm, dry and sunny. I wouldn't recommend it for anything else.
