Like most people, I put did a significant amount of research before purchasing this tent. I'm writing this review to, hopefully, help you decide if this tent is the right one for you. After several months of reading reviews on a variety of tents I settled on this one for a few reasons. First, it was larger than the 8x7 tent my family had, and I wanted a tent with a little extra room as we are planning on camping more in the future than we do currently. But the real bonus here is that the tent has vertical, not sloped, walls, so you really do get 10x10 ft. worth of space. For my 6'3 husband, that's a big deal. However, the tent is not so large that it is too difficult to put together. We were able to get it up in 20 minutes, and though it would have taken me a little longer, I'm sure I could have put it up myself, and I'm only 5'3". Secondly, I really like how well ventilated this tent is. I wasn't sure how it would do, but it doesn't get stuffy at all. I would suggest bringing a warm sleeping bag, though, because the trade off to that is that it can get cold in the tent at night (being in Southern California, this isn't a great concern for us.) I do have two suggestions if you get this tent, though. First, get some sort of drop cloth or other form of floor protector, as it is easy to puncture the tent floor. Secondly, like other reviewers, invest in some better stakes than come with this tent. Apart from those suggestions, I highly recommend this tent. It is exactly what I needed for my family camping trips.
