Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was a little wary after reading some reviews of this tent, but decided to go for it anyway. I was looking for something for easy family camping - backyard camping, car camping, camping in good weather. This tent is great for that. It's goes up pretty quickly and comes down quick too. I like how the poles are designed to just slide out of the clips.
cons: I'm not used to a tent this tall. The first couple times I set it up, I realized I forgot some clips and had to partially take things apart to redo it. The height also makes the fly more difficult to attach than it is on a smaller tent.
Also, I ordered the footprint to go with it. I'm not a fan of how the footprint is designed to cover the vestibule space as well. In one night of steady rain, we had a puddle in the tent from where it ran in an pooled in between the tent floor and the footprint. I guess that can be fixed with figuring out how to set it up better.
Overall, I love it as a nice and easy family tent. My main solo tent is a Sierra Designs. This is no S.D.!, but it is good for what I wanted out of it.
