Good tent for the priceUsed this on a 3 day backpacking trip on the AT, no issues. Suggest you practice the set up before you go out as it does take some practice and not freestanding i.e. must be staked out. Did not buy the footprint, just used lightwieght plastic.

Well worth the moneyI just used this tent on a 3 day backpacking trip through the Santa Cruz Mountains. Night time temps in the low 40's, with fog/drizzle. Used it with the floor liner that I purchased separately. This tent kept me dry and held up great. The vestibule had just enough room for my external frame pack, a little more room would have been nice, but it was enough. Had plenty of room for sleeping pad inside with a little extra room by my feet to store my shoes/clothes. I'm 6'0" and I had enough room to sit up inside as well. It packs up nice and compact, if you take the poles out of the bag...I just store those in the long side pouch on my pack. I didn't use the supplied tent stakes though, as swapped them out for titanium shepard's hook stakes. Great product at a great price. I'm only giving 4 stars because of the vestibule size, and the fact that I prefer a shepard's hook style tent stake.

Couldn't ask for betterThis product was amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better tent to spend the weekend in. Personally for now I think all my gear will be switched to Ascend. So far great products and no issues. Can't wait for my next trip in a couple weeks.
Easy set up and take down, plenty of room. I'm 6'0 365 and I fit with room for my pack and other equipment. Highly recommended

Not recommendedBought this product as a gift. Polls don't quite fit. Product is really cheaply constructed.

PatheticThe assembly instructions were pathetic. The video was useless. I, too, could not find the missing grommet. In tiny, tiny writing on the INSIDE of the package, it states the tent is NOT waterproof. In tiny, tiny writing on the INSIDE of the package, it states that the stakes provided are NOT adequate. I do NOT recommend this tent.

Awesome TentI own a few 1 man tents. IONOSPHERE Snugpak tent and Catoma Raider also a couple of Alp Mountaineering tents. This tent is just as good if not better. I seriously cant find really any draw backs to buying this tent. It handles rain and wind great.
