I love this thing. It is so easy and quick to sent up, well under five minutes with just a three-year-old "helping". There's enough room inside for a queen-sized inflatable mattress and all our gear, plus headroom to stand up in the center. I've only had a few problems with it, nothing catastrophic. One of the tether seams started to come out after high winds during the first use (other people's tents were blowing away) but took about five stitches to fix. I felt a few drips of rain under the window during a torrential downpour during the second use. Just be careful to keep your tensions evenly distributed at each corner, seal the seams around the window and door, and keep children from falling/jumping on the sides and you should be good. Mine's been through four five-day festivals and is still good. And they don't mention this, but you can set up under a tree limb or something and tie up the peak, no pole needed.

I purchased this tent last spring and have used it several times. It is very spacious and the headroom is fantastic. It also draws attention because of its unusual appearance, which can be fun. It is quite light, which is great if you have to carry any distance. The ventilation is surprisingly good for a "waterproof" tent. It was not unbearably hot in the sun, cooler than a smaller tent would be. One day we had very high winds. Many tents in the camping area were damaged. The Wigwam held up very well. Another day it rained hard and steady for several hours. The sides leaked at the outside edge in several places. The tent is not factory sealed. The door also leaked some; this would be hard to fix. All the water that came in wiped up with a towel and the tent is so roomy that our stuff, piled near the middle, did not get wet. A fun tent, reasonably priced. Great for concerts, SCA events and the like. Not a good choice for a Boy Scout Troop, extended camping or backpacking.

Here are a few tips that will improve this tent's weakness. The overall weakness of this tent is that it has the design of a larger tent but the material used would be for a smaller pop up dome tent. They used light weight material but really can't see back packing with this tent. If that's what your going to do then stick with the factory stuff.
First and main weakness is the center pole. Go your local hardware store and invest in a heavy set of screw connect pipe for the center pole. Don't for get to get Chair leg bottoms, rubber slip over type for the top and bottom length.
Next buy heavier stakes. Also get heavy guide lines(rope) and guide. There are sites on line that show you how to make guides from 1x4's.
The next weakness is the floor. Follow the instructions and put a tarp under your tent. Also find a in/out door rug to fit inside. This will help keep you from tearing the floor and make it more comfortable to walk on.
Finally set-up the tent up before you camp. Have at lest 3 days of good warm sunny weather. Let it air out and "de-factory" the first day. Then get a couple of cans of tent seal, (local big box store or sports store) and spray down inside and out the whole tent. Put extra around all the seams.
Another after thought. If your like me you will find it almost impossible to fold the tent to fit in the original carry bag. I would suggest investing in a army duffle bag to put the tent in and use the original bag for the hardware, hammer, flashlight , ect, anything else you might need to help in setup.

I love this tent! It's very spacious and easy to set up. We call it "The Modern Tipi". My favorite part is the fact that I can stand up in it without hitting my head (I'm 5'6). Me and my boyfriend took it with us when we went camping, and there was plenty of room for us to sleep and put all of our stuff in it. It was perfect for us.

I can't wait to camping in it again. :)

We bought one of these tents to 'try out' before purchasing 13 of them for our boy scout troop. It didn't rain on the camp out(extremely unusual), so we showered it from above with a garden hose. The only leaks were through the stitching around the door and window (these seams were not sealed by manufacturer). In general, the boys do like the tent but we thought from the description and photo that we were getting a 12' SQUARE tent which would hold 3 cots. The tent is actually a HEXAGON which means you have 6 five and a half foot sides and can only place 2 cots in the middle. We really haven't decided yet whether to try taping the door/window seams and going with these tents or to purchase something else. We are still looking.

This tent lasted one night in my tent testing area: Truckhaven, CA near the Salton Sea. The first night had light wind. The next night the wind kicked up and the tent did not survive. The guy lines ripped out of the tent body and the whole tent shredded. The thin pole snapped and ripped through the tent body. The tent was tossed in a nearby dumpster. I have since gotten another single pole tent that did hold up to the punishment of Truckhaven.

We purchased this tent from another retailer on sale for about $60 four or five years ago.
I have another base-camp, 4-season huge teepee tent. But it was $1300 and despite being more bombproof, I almost hate to use it. But for $60, I don't mind if this thing gets used and abused, so we turn to this tent more often than others for family reunions, scout camps, camping the backyard, etc.

Pros:
Very easy to pitch and strike. So we do more backyard camping (which the kids LOVE) than if I had to go through the pain of pitching larger, more complex 6-man tents.
Cheap.
Good ventilation (four mesh windows).
Kids love it.

Cons:
Stitching not very good. A couple stake tabs have ripped out, which I've just resewn (better than factory) with my sewing machine to extend its life.
Kids who aren't careful tend to get the flimsy tent material caught in the zippers. And for some reason, this material and these zippers really don't play well together. When they get stuck, it's bad. I end up having to rip or cut fabric to get it out.
Despite other positive reviews, it really isn't the best in windy situations. As the four walls stand pretty tall, they catch the wind easily and blow and flap noisily all night long. This tent would be a steal if it just had four guy-out points about halfway up each wall in the middle, in order to more firmly pull the walls tight.
