First time set-up took about 20 minutes because I couldn't figure out which part of the rainfly was what. The directions wern't that helpful. The rainfly has 3 zipped sections and I just couldn't easily find the front of it. Otherwise, now that I know how it's set up, it will go faster next time.
Once set up, the flies and bugs seem to get caught just above the top of the tent and below the rainfly so they get trapped. During the day, there are a ton of flys trapped and is almost disgusting with how many there are, all buzzing just above you.
It's not a tent for the daytime as it will get too hot quickly with the rainfly on in the sun. Make sure it's placed in shade. It's pointless without the rainfly unless you expect zero rain so you have to use it.
It's not a tent for people that hate to bend over to get in as the opening is low.
Bought this tent after tring a much larger and way more expinsive brand, this was a way better tent for my needs of a weekend camping at a biking festival. it's a small pack size for its over set up size, and for the weekend park or event camper it would be great, for one or two perfect for a blow up bed or cot and room for gear too, the loft storage was nice to have though could use a lip to keep things from sliding off or out, i'm 6 foot tall and found it fairly easy to change in the tent,( grantate i couldnt stand up striagt. the side open flaps def help keep it cool in the day time if you don;t mind passers by seeing your stuff, the zippers for these being on the outside only and the privacy issue would be why i gave 4 stars and not 5, nothing is perfect and face it is in the budget tent class, but thats half the fun of camping, didnlt get to experiance it in the rain yet. so can't comment on that. but for those who like to be prepared, test set up and spray it down, and coat the seems with sealer before going out on a madien voyage anyway to be safe.
