Most reviewers mentioned how great the ventilation is when you have to reside inside due to bad weather.

Reviewers mentioned that the camping tent did not leak and was well sealed. It comes with a a sealant that is recommended to use. This camping tent has a lot of storage and foot lockers, even though this does take up space. It does sleep 5 people with gear. It is good for spring and summer tent camping.

Some of the negative feedback is the footlockers takes up some space, it is very heavy and not suitable for backpacking, you have to modify this camping tent to use out of season for fall and winter. The worst is the front gate area, that is not covered with rain fly at all, while there is open mesh near the ceiling directly exposed to outside air. If wind is strong and coming toward the front of this tent, you will feel the gust coming in.

Overall this tent is highly recommended for spring/summer tent camping, and it is great for the price. Click here for more information
