We used it first time in anger for 10 days down at Tolgate Farm near Perranporth. The weather was changeable to say the least with heavy rain and some very high winds.
An easy tent to erect with plenty of living space (there are 3 of us, the sown in ground sheet makes draft free and the adequate venting means there is not much condensation. Even in some very high winds the tent remained stable and secure.
There is only one cable entry point which is in a slightly odd place next to the side door and the small canopy on said door is not easy to get right, once sorted it was OK but I was never confident enough to leave the canopy up whilst we were away from the tent all day.
Overall a very good small(ish) family tent that has proved itself in some very difficult conditions that saw others either pack up and go home or dealing with some very bent and broken tents.
