This tent's best qualities are that it is light, easy to set up and weather tight. It packs down to little more than the size of a water bottle and takes less than 5 minutes to set up. The tent provided ample room for my 5' 11" frame and a few small pieces of gear. The tent is narrow so it's necessary to enter feet first. Once inside you'll then need to pull your pack in front of the front door. This means of ingress/egress didn't particularly bother me but it's something to consider.
My pack fit nicely into the vestibule in front of the front door.
I made my ground cloth out of a standard contractor trash bag cut to the same dimensions as the footprint. It takes all but about 5 minutes to make a new ground cloth at the beginning of each trip.
I took this tent on a fall trip into the mountains of northwest Montana.Nights that were and dry or with scattered showers everything stayed dry with little or no condensation. Nights where the temperature dropped into the upper 30's to low 40's with steady rain it was a different story. The fly didn't leak but heavy condensation covered the entire inside of the fly. The condensation was so heavy it rain down the fly dripped on to the tent body and eventually made it on to the top of the ground sheet. My pack which came in contact with the fly was likewise wet. The fabric of the fly lacked any effective water repellent so the fabric became completely saturated, sagged and brought the fly into contact with the tent body which then dripped water inside the tent. If there's more than one day cold and rainy of weather, you'll get wet.
Winds during the trip were light to moderate. Highest winds had gusts to 35 mph which the tent tolerated well.
To say that this tent is "free standing" is simply misleading. Yes, the frame will remain standing without staking the tent body down but the tent goes from a rectangle to a narrow triangle and the sides collapse in upon themselves. An absolute minimum of 4 stakes are needed to make the tent function. Even with all the stakes in place and all the guy lines pulled taught the tent body is still somewhat concave. At least 2 more staking points are needed to get the full use of the floor area.
Overall, I like the tent as a single season tent when the weather is anticipated to be mild. I wouldn't take this tent if extended periods of cold damp weather might be encountered.
