This tent was great for my needs! I have camped several times before so I am not new to it, however this was my first time where I would be sleeping in a tent alone, therefore transporting, setting up and taking down the tent myself. I took it on a up north camping trip in the woods this weekend in northern Michigan with some friends. Extremely easy to set up! You really can do it in minutes. I took my time with it while having a beer though, so maybe 10-20 minutes for me. Everything you need to set up comes with it.
I did not use the rainfly because there was no rain in the forecast but I'm sure it works great, this "awning" type is what you want. I also didn't put it on because I wanted to be able to look up at the stars at night, and let me tell you, that was AMAZING. Such a clear night and in the woods of northern Michigan you can see an insane amount of stars, along with the Milky Way! That was just too cool to be able to look at them through my tent ceiling. The windows of the tent were great too. I'll see if I can post a photo of my awesome spot in the photos section.
Although it did not rain at all (yay!) there was still a ton of moisture from the air/dew. So much that if you left your sleeping bag out (like my friend did) in the open for an hour or two, it will literally become wet like it did rain. My sleeping bag that I put in the tent right away still got some moisture on it, but there is nothing you can do about that if there is that much moisture in the air. May have been better if I closed the windows and put the rainfly on but it really was no big deal at all.
As for the actual sleeping space inside, it was totally fine for me. I am a little over 5'7" and I would say medium weight, not fat but not skinny. It was exactly what I was looking for, just enough space for me to sleep and my backpack. I would not recommend this as a two person tent though unless you are using it with a sig. other and want to cuddle all night and look at the stars=) In my opinion, it was the perfect amount of space for one. Two adults would probably be tight. Also, I used one of those self-inflating sleeping pads (regular size) and that fit well in there too.
Although my walk to this particular site was not long at all (only 5-10 minutes) I would definitely use it for backpacking. (That was what I had in mind when I first purchased it.) You would need a backpacking backpack, it won't fit inside a regular sized backpack. I'm sure you could strap it on the outside of a regular one though. Doesn't come with straps but the bag has handles so you could strap it on by putting a rope or whatever through those.
Hope that helps! I tried to think of everything I was looking for when I begun my search.
NOTE: On the advice of lots of folks here I purchased a small 2 oz bottle of "Coleman Seam Sealer" (available here or at Wal-Mart). The day the tent arrived I set it up outside on my back deck and sealed all the seams and let it dry for about 4 hours before folding it back up and putting it away.
PROS: This tent is inexpensive, light weight, easy to erect, and does it's job quite well. It assembles in about 3 to 5 minutes (if you've done it once or twice). The instructions are a perfect guide if you cannot remember the 3 easy steps.
CAMPING IN THE RAIN: So I went on my first camping trip with it this past weekend and I was caught in an off-and-on torrential downpour from 10 PM at night through 9 AM the next morning and guess what? I stayed completely dry and slept very well. I did forget to zip the small electrical cord opening shut for the first few hours and the sideways rain got a few drops in there until I realized it and zipped it tight. I left the vent windows open during the entire storm and had zero issues with water.
TIP: Be sure to bring a couple of large black trash bags to put the tent into if you have to break camp while it is still raining. That prevented a huge wet mess inside the car when I departed the camp site.
Time will tell if this is a durable product ... but so far so good. LIKE!
First, the travel bag it comes in is not meant for backpacking. At all. This is standard Walmart-esk canvas bag that is heavy, cumbersome, and square. However I've had absolutely no problems getting the tent in and out of the bag. The tent isn't an odd shape, and it rolls up really well. However, if you're going to go backpacking, you'll need to buy a separate bag.
Second, assembly is a dream! I could probably do it with my eyes closed if I had to. Two poles, same length, lightweight and pretty sturdy. Had no problems getting it set-up, in fact I had my partner set it up (with supervision) who had never set up a tent before. The only thing of note is that the rain tarp (or whatever you locally call it) has a pole that you slip in horizontally across the bow of the tent that can be tricky. More simply put, the pole extends from back to front with only a little velcro pouch to hold it in, thus it is easily missed the first time you try and set it up. Once you know where it is, it's easy.
Third, the room. While my partner and I fit rather well with little to no effort in putting pads, blankets, and sleeping bags in, I will note that it was a tight fit. At least, our packs did not fit easily inside. In fact they pretty much didn't, but it was slated to rain rather hard that night, so it was our only option. To be fair, we had an ungodly amount of padding and blankets we were laying on, and ultimately would probably had enough room for at least one pack if we hadn't had so much padding (had to use old fashioned couch-like cushions at the time). Overall definitely roomy enough for one person and their gear+, but a tight fit for two grown adults and their gear.
Fourth, and possibly the most important but also easily fixable: It leaked. Not gratuitously, but enough to leave just a little water on the bottom of the pads. However, this was after a night of *very* heavy rainfall and wind. I was curious to see if the factory seal would be enough to make it waterproof, and I can't say I'm surprised that it didn't. However, I will be resealing it myself, which is easy enough for people to do. So don't think too poorly of it's water abilities.
Another note: it doesn't come with a footprint, so I would invest in one. In fact, screw the traditional heavy canvas, and invest in some Tyvek 1443R Kitemaking Material. It's SUPER lightweight (it's kitemaking material), waterproof, and comes recommended by pretty much every backpacker out there. Worked like a charm, and it so thin and lightweight that it fits in the crappy square tent bag with everything else.
All in all, this is a damn good tent for the price, and you should probably buy it.
