Easy, quick and comfy

I bought this tent after a lot of research on tents that would be easy for one person to pitch, but be cosy enough for two. I’m not a camping aficionado so I wanted something that wasn’t going to be super complex to pitch, but would still keep me warm and dry in bad weather. This tent does that. First time I put it up, it took me around 15 minutes, the poles are interconnected, so there is little mucking around, and they’re also color coded which makes them pretty easy to figure out what goes where. Plenty of space inside for me and all the stuff I love to lug around, but the two vestibules are big enough to store a large backpack, tho on wet ground I would ensure maybe a bin bag to keep your bag from getting wet from the ground.
It stood up well to pouring rain, and with the aid of my sleeping bag, I was toasty on a frosty October night. Despite the amount of meshing, it kept the wind out nicely, and that meshing means little issue with condensation.

Also, after putting it up and taking down a few times, I can get this tent up in under ten minutes, and down just as quickly
