I prefer freestanding tents but got this primarily because of its small packed size. At 5x7, it's 13 inches shorter than the amazing REI Quarter Dome T2.
Setup was straight forward: Stake 4 corners, 2 vestibule straps, stick your trekking poles into the large rings, lift and and adjust length. The tent is made of polyurethane nylon which has some stretch in it - like stretchy jeans. This helps keep the tension tight as the weather temperature fluctuates.
Excellent attention to detail and it looks great.
The MSR Pocket Rocket and its propane tank http://www.backcountry.com/msr-pocket-rocket-stove will NOT fit, unless you leave one cup set behind. The picture on the box shows a stove+tank that WILL fit, but it doesn't specify which one.
