Bought this tent as part of a clearance special from a local camping store, £100 for tent, carpet and footprint! The rings on the ring and pin system were corroded, but these were easy enough to change.
Tent went up with no problems, the bag does contain a good set of pitching instructions, not just a label!
Overall, we are really pleased with this tent, especially for the money we paid. It has a reasonable head height (I'm 5'6 and I can stand up in it), the bedroom pod has all the usual pockets, as well as a fly screen on the bedroom door. There is a organiser which you can have on either side of the tent, a window with roll-down curtain, a a fly screen on the door, all features we have on our much more expensive Outwell. It's a lot of tent for the money!
Downside: it could do with a bracing pole at the rear, where the two poles cross from front to back - they have a tendency to sag slightly inwards, especially when the wind blows. My OH is going to try a fashion something.

I've used this tent twice and still don't know what to make of it! It's a perfect size for one person, not too heavy or bulky, with a good sized sleeping area and enough living room for a chair, small table,and assorted boxes. A couple would really only manage two chairs and not much else but still very usable for two.
BUT- The 'open face' means that there's a gap of about 4 inches round the front between the inner and outer tent, allowing any wind to funnel through the tent and as the roof of the tent is almost entirely mesh, it is very draughty and cold. There are other 'ventilation issues' and inner first pitching leaves the tent very unstable until the flysheet is on and the guy ropes secured (broken pole).
Full marks for style, looks,size. But not a tent to be used with anything more than a puff of wind.
