Set-up=Super easy! First use in field I had 60lbs of gear in it. No wind, no weather so I thought no stakes needed...oops. Left the area for a few hours while a storm came out of no where with torrential rain and 60 mph winds. Came back to find tent down the hill about 30 yards from where I set it up and laying UPSIDE DOWN with gear scattered down to where the tent laid. Zipper partially open so I feared the worst for my gear. COMPLETELY DRY GEAR!!! Even downpour and upside down... not a drop of water got inside!!! I was super relieved and can't say enough good things. I'm 6'3" 200lbs and wouldn't say it's a 3 person... 2 guys is plenty cozy with the gear. Super compact, easiest set-up of any tent I've owned and extremely light wt. AMAZING TENT!
