I had zero camping experience, my husband remembered a few things from when he was little... We decided it was time to get back out there. After much research, we purchased this tent (thanks for the great sale, ALPHA CAMP!). Not only was it it a good value, but this is a good tent. As with any 4 person tent out there, it fits 2 people very comfortably, with plenty of room for storage. I camped with a friend once, and we had plenty of room for two separate piles of stuff, while still being so far away from each other sleeping, that we would not be able to reach with our fingertips if we tried. It feels like it has sooooo much space in there when you crawl in it for the first time. It has nice little pockets for personal items and great vents to keep things cool in the summer. While it has not rained either of the times we took it out, it seems to be holding out well to moisture. We additionally sealed the seams, just to be on the safe side. The mud mat that comes with the tent is a nice feature also - it is so hard to get dirt out of the tent once it gets in - better to leave your shoes in the mud mat Things got a little heated between me and my husband when we were putting it up for the first time - I chuck it up to inexperience though, as putting it up the second time was no problem at all. Pulling it down and folding it back into its carrying case was a cinch also. Basically, in good weather, this thing is your best friend and we'll see about the rest when the time comes. Well worth the money, our family love the tent.
