Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is quite big, too big for the beach, I think - it would block everyone else's view. At a concert, I set it up at the very back to not bother anyone else. Since it has a vinyl coated floor and fiberglass poles, it is also quite heavy, compared to a backpacking tent. Setup and takedown are tedious, and downright frustrating if only 1 person is setting it up. The metal ferrules between the pole segments are quite bulky, and have sharp edges, so that they catch and jam in each fabric sleeve they have to get through. The storage sack ripped the first time I used it, and is too thin a fabric for this heavy load. Once up, it is roomy, pretty stable, nice ventilation with the 3 windows and nice interior pockets. I returned it and will get something lighter and smaller.
