Rated 4 out of 5 by Badbull61 Good tent
I used this tent is Alaska for 3 weeks with great results. Very easy to set up and take down and was fine for summer nights in Alaska. I have also used it in the Smokies in the Fall and Spring. It's main use has been for Cub Scout camping in Florida and that is where we have run into problems. The mesh is great to keep out pests, but it is so fine that the breeze has a very difficult time getting in and in Florida that is a killer. It also has a difficult time with heavy Florida rains that tend to go sideways. I have had a flooded tent on at least 2 occasions. All in all it is a good tent but think twice for Florida from April through Oct. - it might not be the best choice. One person can easily set this tent up which is a nice feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by djthain good tent small leaks
This tent is easy to setup. It will leak through the floor if water gets under it. The top of the tent usually sheds the water if you don't touch it.
