    by fromFlimsy structure and paper thin I bought this to replace an old $30 2-person tent I got from Target years ago, as I wanted to downsize/lighten my pack while going for a better quality tent for my backcountry trips. This was not that. Granted, it is compact and lightweight which is good, but the build quality felt so weak and wobbly I didn't even feel like it would hold up in my front yard if a stiff breeze came through. Also, the material (although I'm sure it is) didn't seem waterproof at all...again, it just felt like a really cheap and flimsy tent. Not to mention the lack of a built-in footprint (which some people like; I prefer it to be built in) was kind of a turn-off for me. All in all, I'd definitely suggest extending your search to a different brand. REI brand usually seems good for the price (probably what I will go with for my next purchase)

    by fromOK for a shorter person I reviewed this tent last year, then they didn't have them for a while. Now they got more in and my review no longer shows. Anyway I'm 6' 2", when I tried out the tent in my yard both my head and feet were touching the walls when I laid on my back on a standard therma-rest type pad and sleeping bag. I imagine if you were about 5' 6" or less it would be fine, seems well made and plenty of storage when going solo, but I never camped in it because it was not long enough for me.

    by fromSnug and durable I've camped in this tent on numerous trips on the East Coast over the past 2 years. This tent is cozy but durable. The rainfly survived a massive storm during a beach trip. After 36 hours of rain it was mostly dry inside. With how much rain and wind was thrown at us, I was delightfully surprised at its performance. I was concerned the tent would fall apart since we were staked in sand, but it was no problem for this tent. The rainfly creates extra covered room for shoes and packs. Inside the tent is just enough room for 2 small people or 1 large person. If you're tall, I'd buy a bigger tent. This tent is only good for sleeping and star gazing; you can't stand-up inside. The tent packs down small and is lightweight.

    by fromGood Tent I have the older comet version (different color rain fly) and I've used it several times for short hiking trips, motorcycle camping, and just got back from a longer solo hike. For Motorcycle camping this tent is great, the small packed size means it fits in my side cases with ease. With the additional space I'm to store gear in the tent with me over night. For hiking this has been a good tent; its easy to set up, fairly light, I'm able to keep the backpack in the tent with me, and it has (3) storage pockets. The downside is it really lacks head room to sit up and read, this coming from a guy that's 5'6".

    by from2 months, Lots of rain, No problems! I bought this tent for a 2 month camping trip in British Columbia. I was very nervous about whether this tent would really prove to be waterproof, but it certainly was! Nothing inside my tent ever got wet - and this is in BC, where it's always damp. The tent is very small. I'm a 5'5'' ~115lbs female and this tent was great for me, lying down. This isn't a tent you want to be spending a lot of time in, it's really just for sleeping. If I wanted to change in the tent I had to do so lying down. I also didn't need to store my big camping pack in the tent with me - if I had, things may have been too snug for my liking. But, for my situation this tent was perfect. I never review things but the fact that this tent kept me dry for two month in BC made me feel like I needed to say something!
