Rated5out of5bygclimerfromPerfect for Southern CampingI spent four days camping in this tent, and I couldn't be happier.
I've always owned 2+ man tents, so I was used to having tons of room. Turns out if I pack smart, a 1 man tent is perfect for me.
I'm 5' 6" and had enough room at the foot of my bag to stow my Kelty Avocet 40L pack and other small miscellaneous items. I also had a sleeping pad that measures 72.5" x 26.5" in the tent.
The detachable shelf that hangs from the top is large enough to stow some essentials like a flashlight, knife, toiletries, etc.
I could have easily stored my pack outside of the tent under the vestibule, but opted only to keep my shoes and sandals there instead.
This tent is super easy to assemble - and was actually put up by a couple of friends (who had never even seen the tent before) while I was putting up another shade tent for the group.
It rained slightly and the wind was heavy the entire time. I didn't have any issues with the fly - even though I forgot to attach the inside velcro straps to the support poles before staking everything down.
I imagine this tent would be great for Spring thru Fall.

Rated2out of5by777 DadfromToo SmallReceived the tent today and set it up. the tent was super light and I had it set up in less than 5 minutes with no help. That was the when the problem begins. I am only 5' 11" and was hard pressed to lay comfortably. My 12 year old son said he was comfortable, but he is only 4' 10". Now I know why it was reduced to half price.

Rated4out of5bytecdelverfromGood single person tentI used this tent for two weeks in Philomont, New Mexico where we had thunderstorms every other day/night. It performed well, was quick & easy to set up, dried quickly, and was warmer than a 2 man tent. A little claustrophobic/coffin-like if you've never used a 1 person tent before. I have only used this tent for a season, so no data on long-term performance.
