I am a professional outdoor guide and I have had this tent for about a year now, in that year the tent has been with me in the Apostle Islands for tons of multiple day trips and now it has seen many days below the rim of the Grand Canyon. I will start with the cons first. The tent is very weird to set up the first few times, I have never had a tent were the main pole connects to the mesh of the tent and not to the grommets, there is a separate pole that does that. The once you have the tent set up with the fly on you still have velcro straps that need to be wrapped around the tent poles from under the rain fly. This tent took me about 20 minutes to set up the first 2 times I set it up. For me that is the only negative I have regarding this tent. The pros are it's very light and roomy, the large stash pocket by the door is awesome. The tent has a pocket for your headlamp on the ceiling that has a lense in it that lights up the whole tent. I have had this tent in storms and the water stayed outside. 3 days ago I was guiding on the Horseshoe Mesa (Grand Canyon) and we had sustained winds of 45+ mph my tent was just staked down, the fly was on and my tent was the only tent that stayed in place. The other tents that were staked down and tied to boulders they got destroyed. The wind tore the loops for the guidelines off the Flys and sent the tents rolling a crossed the mesa. The marmot force is strong and arrow dynamic well worth the money.

I have not used this tent yet, in fact I just on boxed it today and set it up in the living room. The tent us very easy to set up took me 10 min that's including the time to make room for it. The tent looks very strong and feels extremely solid, it's the perfect tent for me and my girlfriend to sleep in on are multi day canoe trips. I originally owned a Alps mountaineering extreme tent 2 which also is a very good tent and holds up to a lot of abuse, the only reason I changed to this tent is because of the room it has. I will let ya know more when I use this tent. The only reason it is rated four Starr's is because I have not used it yet
