Weatherproof, Excellent Buy
Our first use of this tent was on a family excursion that lasted for over a week. During the day it was hot, the nights were cold, there were winds throughout the trip, and there were a few storms as well. Even with all these different extremes this tent was excellent. There were some floor punctures in the last Eureka tent that we had (but it lasted 10 years) and it was eventually not big enough for our family. This new tent has had no issue keeping all water out while it is raining and I recommend putting a tarp underneath of the tent when setting up to make sure that you can protect the bottom from anything too sharp. Also, if you camp a lot and have set up many tents then the directions shouldn't give you any issue, but if you are unsure I would recommend doing it at least once before the first trip. This tent has definitely given us our money's worth.
