Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This tent isn't my normal style, which is lightweight backpacking, but I needed a new car-camping tent to use as a base station in a campground when I was on a work detail most of the summer back in 2013. It's gigantic! Almost embarrassingly so, but it was great for long periods away from home since I could comfortably fit all my gear plus a table and chair and have a refuge to hang out in during inclement weather. And while the description says a 6' person can stand in it, that's an understatement, because my 6'5" husband can stand in it with plenty of headroom. We've been using it both as a base station for work trips to some property we own in Northwestern Montana, and also as a backyard 'guest room' for overflow sleeping space in the summer. It's so large and comfy that guests actually enjoy it. It's also sturdy in a storm, and very stable even in high winds. Have stayed it in a couple of downpours with wind-driven rain and stayed perfectly dry. My only complaint is the webbing on two of the corners where the stakes poke through the grommet is starting to show some wear around the edges of the grommet. I think the grommet is a long way from pulling out of the webbing, but even if it does, I'm not really worried as Marmot is typically great about standing behind their products. Also, a person buying it should be aware that this tent is 10'x10' with two 4' vestibules, and it may not handily fit in some regular tent sites in National and State park campgrounds.
