I got this to camp out of my kayak which has small ports for packing and limited space, of course. It worked very well and held up under cross winds of about 30 mph, maybe a bit more, that buffeted me all night. At 5'3" I'm not a challenge to fit but this tent is long and so there was room storing gear at the foot and putting stuff I needed to get to at the door. Would prefer a side entry but for the price, you can't beat this. It is the narrowest free standing tent I've seen so weight is saved there. Got the foot print to save on wear, fits nicely.
