I'm in the tent right now writing this. It is raining cats and dogs outside, as it has for the past two days. NOT A DROP inside the tent. WHat more can you ask for? It's a handsome tent, easy to set up and well ventilated and comfortable. Even with the rain flap attached, you can still see out the front door if you want to get a good view. Of course, I am going to spray it with Scotchguard next dry day we have, why tempt fate, but right now the water is beading up and rolling right off. The nicest test I'e ever owned, can't recommend it highly enough.
Ordered this tent online, it arrived very quickly if I remember correctly sooner than the original expected delivery date. I set it up at home to practice so that once I got to the site it would be simple. I would recommend that to anyone, once I understood the set up it really does only take a few min to set up the tent. The only draw back was you can not fit a queen sized air mattress through the door inflated-so don't forget an extension cord. Overall great purchase.
I purchased this tent for its ease of set up, but as far as it holding a queen sized air mattress it does, and not room for anything else. It's a great product but too small for 2 people, their gear AND a queen mattress, purchased the 6 person tent and still waiting for it to arrive.

Out of the 8 tents purchased in the last 3 years, this one wins!
I bought this tent the first time for a desert-camping trip. It withstood high winds, when tied down with rope and rebar, and remained surprisingly dust-free during dust storms. I loved it so much that when it came time to put the desert one in storage and head back to the rainy North East, I purchased another!
In rain and wind, the second one held strong and was dry inside. The only moisture came from dew accumulation dripping from the center point after three straight days of torrential downpour. I can easily set it up and take it down myself, which is a huge feat for a 5'3" woman, though it is always easier with an extra set of hands. The only fault I have found is that it does seem to heat up rather rapidly, moreso than other tents I've had it seems, without a shade structure like a 10x10 pop-up over it.
All in all, best TWO purchases I've made in my camping life.
Love how easy this tent went up. Many years ago, I had a tent that had the poles attached but couldn't find another one to replace it until now. Another plus is that a rain fly is not needed, as seams are all taped and tent is considered waterproof on its own. I always hated the extra work of putting on a rain fly correctly.One downside is that the fabric was advertised on the web site to be 150 denier yet what I received was only 75 denier. A little disappointing (why the discrepancy, anyway?) but should be fine for occasional summer camping. I did have to return this tent due to two small holes noticed when setting it up for a practice run in the living room. However, I liked it enough to re-order it.
I was excited to get the tent but when I set it up it was missing a grommet, which is needed for the tent poles to give the tent it's shape and keep it up. I tried contacting the company three times with no luck. It could be a good tent but this is a major problem and the company is unresponsive...Buyer beware
