I would have given this tent a 2 rating, but at $99, it's hard to complain about it.

It's lighter than most standard 2 person tents and you can drop some more weight by not using most of the stake out points, the 3rd spreader pole and loosing all the stuff sacks.

Zippers are not great quality but they work OK as long as you are somewhat carefull. Setup is fast and only requires 1 person. Vestibule will fit boots and other small items only. You could cook in it with a butane/propane stove in a pinch. White gas or alcohol could be real exciting.

I'm not a tent fan, preferring tarps / ponchos, but for exposed windy areas or getting away from bugs on a budget there's nothing even close in price / weight.
