We love the fact that we can stand in it, both in the sleeping area and the porch.The first time we used it unfortunately it rained so we took advantage of the big space in the porch and stayed in it with foldable chairs and a small table!We like it a lot. The only thing we would change is the groundsheet. We would have preferred a groundsheet sewn in to the flysheet.

Really pleased with it :)

Great tent. Very spacious and comfortable. It's reasonably easy to put up - it took us more then indicated 10 minutes to do this mainly due to strong wind. Included instructions are very basic - so if you doing it for a first time it can be bit confusing.

My advice is to start from the back and move forward. Once flysheet is done it's a matter of few minutes to attach inner tent.

Porch area is a very good size with loads of light from massive front window and 2 smaller one on sides. My favourite bit is mesh side doors - I'd love to have it on both sides.

Sleeping area has some pockets on sides and double entry doors - you can attach divider in a middle to create two sleeping areas - we decided not to and have a mattress bang in a middle with plenty of storage space on both sides (only two of us).

Ventilation appears to be really good into a sleeping area - as there is biggish mesh at the back of the tent pulled out using two guy ropes and mesh opposite it at inner tent.

Porch area ventilation is questionable - as there is a mesh above a window but it's closely covered by flysheet. This is my least favourite part of design. Flysheet seems to be very tight around this mesh. There is an option of lifting it up with some sewn in 'spacers' but they fold down instantly. Didn't like this bit.

Last few words on groundsheet. Flysheet around porch area has around 30cm groundsheet sewn in which gets covered by inner tent groundsheet. Can't say how this will work in heavy rain but wee experienced fairly strong wind last weekend and ground sheet was lifting up a little from time to time. Overall I am very happy with this purchase. Quality of tent appears to be very good. Pitching is easy (one you know what to do). Tent offers loads of space.
