Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used this tent quite a few times this year, mainly at festavals and as a base sleeping quarters when a bunch of us went on an adventure somewhere. Two of these trips it rained incredably hard and drentched everyone that was not in this tent, the second night it was realy cozy because everyone wanted to be dry. On that note, I know it says 6 person, and 6 will fit without much of an issue, but 6 people with gear will not happen. Just wait for it to go on sale and jump the gun, it is a great tent that is very durrable and (so far) has kept me dry through everything I have been in, and we all know what its like to be in a damp sleeping bag.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have been riding downhill for years and have the scars on my shins to prove it.... finally decided to break down and get some shin guards when I put a huge gash in my leg on the first ride this season. These guards are great, easy to clasp, they don't rub my skin off anywhere, and I am not sure what some other people here are doing wrong but I put these on in the morning and dont take them off until its too dark to ride and I never have to adjust them or pull them up. Stop contemplating, just get them, you will not be dissapointed, and your shins will thank you later.

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

I bought this tent to be an all around use/backpacking/jeep/crash place. It does set up very fast and is great for one person/ or two if you don't mind a little snuggling/ you can fit a single blow up mattress inside of it and still sit up in the morning to put your shoes on. All of the other comments here are accurate, I just wanted to add one flaw that I have experienced with this tent and a few other backpacking tents. This past weekend I setup the tent and laid out my pad and sleeping bag early because I wasn't sure what condition I would be in as the night progressed. A few hours later it started pouring, absolutely dumping rain. I ran to the tent, unzipped the rain cover and dove in. If you look at the shape of this tent, the top of the door is about 12-16 inches into the footprint of the tent. With the door open on the fly all of the water running off the top went right in the tent and soaked the end of my sleeping bag in about 5 seconds. Through the rest of the night absolutely no water got into the tent, unless I had to open the fly. Its not a deal breaker of an issue and if its pouring rain I understand that you will probably already be wet when you get in, but I am not sure why the fly couldn't have been made a foot longer so water would not get in the tent when you open it......
