Easy to pitch, with a generous living space.
I absolutely enjoyed this one during my multiple trips. I loved the durability, easiness of setting it up, and the waterproofness ability that it has.
I hope the tent got roomier. It's pretty small compared to other shelters in its class. The tent floor-length is a bit too short.
