Without the rainfly it's primarily mesh all around the four sides. One unique feature is the top side vent. It has its own small rod support to hold the vent open and a zipper that opens allowing access to three latches across the top to allow closure during rain. There is nothing inside the tent to hang a lantern from. There are two mesh pockets to hold misc. items located across from each other on the side walls.
The rainfly can be a bit cumbersome. The tent itself use (6) stakes total. The rainfly uses (12) total. There are a lot of Velcro connection points to the rods as well, make sure and follow the directions and get all of them as these are essential for the stability of the tent. We haven't been through any storms in it yet, but the rainfly covers the entirety of the tent and drops down to within inches of the ground on all sides. The only openings on the rainfly are the vestibule entry, which has an overhang protecting the zipper and the top vent. Assuming it did rain the three latches when engaged should be able to keep the rain out on the top vent. If rain is getting in then you'd need to adjust the guyed support rope the better angle the top cover of the vent.
The vestibule adds some additional storage space that's covered and protected from the elements, though items would be sitting on the ground. If you place a tarp under your tent, you could pull some additional tarp out and into this area. I stand at 6' 2' and the vestibule entrance almost has me crawling thru to get in. Keep this in mind as it might be easier to load up the tent with your rainfly off. The door to the tent itself is huge and has two latches allowing it to stay open when unzipped.
There is a small little pocket built into the inside of the rainfly so that the vestibule entryway can be unzipped and tucked away to allow additional ventilation.
Word to the wise. When setting up the tent in windy conditions, make sure and set the tent up so the tent entryway faces the wind as described in the set-up directions. The vestibule will help guide the wind up and over the tent and the crossed rods (tent rods and vestibule rod Velcro to each other under the rainfly) provides much more stability then the two rods at the back of the tent. This comes from personal experience in 25-30mph winds. The winds were hitting one of the back rods, which was bending it inwards on the tent. I couldn't rotate the tent at that time, but found out that through manipulation of the guyed support rope on that end helped provide additional stabilization during the heavier winds. Other then that, the tent held firm and that was with the factory anchor pins. I could mimic the inward pull on both back rods during calm conditions from inside the tent. The two front rods wouldn't pull inward like the back ones... So again, set the front towards any heavy and/or expected windy conditions. The vestibule entryway is from the side, so the entrance will still be protected.
The tent folds up and compacts nicely. The rainfly when packed down takes up about as much space as the tent. The rods are standard length. Probably not the best for back packing but great for our family with three young boys.
Setting up solo tent takes approx. 18 minutes, tear down/fold-up takes approx. 20 minutes.
Yes its made in China.
The tub goes all the way around the tent (not the raincover) and is about a foot up all the way around, so there will not be any worry of water coming into camp should it rain. The cross breeze was amazing and it wasn' too hot nor too cold inside.
The storage/entrance nook is great! It covered all our gear. It can fit our 70 lbs dog there nicely when she comes with us.
Laying with your feet toward the entrance you can fit 4 people (even heavier set people, I'd say as long as they aren't taller than 5'7) plus a small amount of gear inside the actual tent. If you lay the long way you can fit maybe 3 people comfortably.
Our rain cover is actually more of a red/cranberry than the orange shown. There isn't a spot to hang a lantern but that's ok. Very happy with the purchase.
Being that I got this on Black Friday for a lower price, I'm still going to keep it. It does seem to be of good quality/build and worth the $28 that I paid. I'd suggest this tent for recreation camping or backyard camping.
