From the manufacturer
For those who don't mind taking some time to set up their tent. Normal setup times can range between 10 to 20 minutes.
Uses color-coded preattached poles and hubs to help anyone pitch their tent up to 50% faster than conventional setup tents.
Makes pitching a tent in under a minute as simple as: unfold, extend, and secure.
Inverted seams increase weather resistance by hiding needle holes inside the tent.
Engineered to be a stronger, more wind-responsive frame with redesigned poles and guy-out triangles.
A zipper cuff made of weather-resistant fabric adds protection from the elements to the door.
Welding-inspired technology strengthens the tent floor and eliminates needle holes.

That said, I was pleasantly surprised by this tent, even alone it was easy to put up and held up very well in a heavy downpour with strong gusty winds, even when two tree branches came down on it! It's very roomy for 2 and still comfortable for 4 if you must but at 1 person it's a palace!!! There have been some complaints on the screen room from being slanted in-ward at top and rain getting in to build up of water in the floor. I myself did not have any problems, yes the rain will come in but I have to say I know why they did it, in my opinion at least. The views are incredible from laying on a pad on the floor. My Coleman 4 in 1 mattress pump died so I used my backpacking pad which is only 3" high and with the door open to the screen room I could see the whole sky. Watching the lighting and the rain come down the trees waving, it was really cool & scary at the same time!! Ha ha. Totally worth a little rain in the screen room area, the rest of the tent was bone dry. To maximize the useable area in the screen room I also used 2 backpacking chairs from Alite Mantis, which gave serious head room along with 2 dogs and a 70 QT cooler with room left over. The built in awnings over the windows in the main tent are nice to keep rain out but do block your view a bit. One tip when pitching tent if you make the area on the floor at back of screen room to tight the floor will raise up a little and you'll be tripping on it going in and out of main living quarters. Yup, I made it too tight!! Also would probably replace guy line with reflective ones for night time trips to the potty or if you drink a lot of alcohol!! I agree that replacing the tent stakes is a must for a strong secure pitch. The photos are just more for seeing it pitched, not so much for stuff inside it as it was a quick test run before a trip. Hope they help. Oh and the grey poles with rubber tips are for the peak to open the awnings up.
Prior to this, I camped with my Coleman Sundown tent, which I swore by for the simple fact that it could be set up and torn down in five minutes. My dog and I fit fine, but if he was wet and it was raining, forget it. Mess everywhere. Now I camp with my gf and my dog and it came tike to expand. Enter the Evanston. We just came back from Lake George camping, where it endured several random torrential downpours and lots of "in and out."
A good rule of thumb when buying a tent is to look at the number of people it says it's for, and subtract by 2. I chose this one simply for the "porch" feature, which I'll expand on below.
As easy as any tent, really. Do yourself a favor and mark with colored tape the tent poles so at a glance you'll know which ones are which next time you set up. It can be set up by one person if necessary, but two people is optimal for ease of use.
Cleanup/ Tear Down:
Because of the ridge pole holding the porch section, it's a little trickier. Use a towel or shirt to brush away the debris that inevitably tracks in.
No rips or tears, no cracked zipper components. A little bit of moistness seeped into the corners from the rain, however. We did not use sealant, which I suspect would have prevented this entirely.
10/10 for two people and a dog, 6/10 for four people and two dogs!
A couple of our friends arrived late and opted to set up their tent in the morning, so we hosted them in ours. It was a bit tight, but definitely doable. Points subtracted here because the main tent door placement required some seriously precarious stepping over each other to get to. Not a great situation for those 3am "find a tree" moments. But the dogs were happy, and everyone had their own "roll around" area.
The usefulness here was two fold. It served to keep some items away from the elements and to trap the dirt from entering the tent. The biggest problem is that the rain fly doesn't cover the mesh covering, so heavy rain will get in. I covered a majority of our items.
It did however, keep dirt and debris out.
Overall, I would highly recommend this tent for those seeking a relaxed and enjoyable tent if it's going to be set up for a couple of days.
