This tent is a little heavy for someone to use for a solo camping trip, but the one big plus is that it is able to pack very small. The overall design of this tent makes the set up process fairly straightforward. One thing that you need to be on the alert about is that during heavy rains, the fly does not extend over the windows, meaning that it would be wise to keep the windows closed during a rain to insure that the tent does not get wet. On a whole, this tent is quite spacious. Both my husband and son are over six feet tall, and because of the height of this tent, they find it very easy to move around in without feeling cramped. For all purposes, it looks like this tent is quite durable. On a side note, I received this tent in the mail quite quickly.
