I do not recommend this product.
The good: easy set up and take down
The bad: the only door, and the window in center section have no rain fly cover, and is curved back so any rain or morning dew fall right in when opened. We could not open either when it rained, which reduced air flow to nil.
No floor in center section so can get muddy if no tarp. We put down tarp and mat and found a ten inch wide puddle inside near door opening when returning after a rain storm. Not sure if formed when we opened door or if water seeped in underneath. We ended up rigging a tarp tied to nearby trees over the center section which allowed us to open the door and window and keep out the rain. Once that was done, it was nice - but for the cost, it should have come with it.
Will keep rest of this year, but will bring extra tarp, poles and rope to cover middle section.

I do not recommend this product.
Way to difficult to fit in the bag even if air is completely removed from the tubes. At that price they could have provided a bigger bag.
