I bought this tent for the main reason of its pack size and weight which are both very small as I needed to strap it to the back of my motorbike.So if you want small storage and pack size this tent scores. It goes up very quickly (especially if you pre-tie the guide ropes), certainly you could do it in-way less then 20 minutes if you wanted to.
Sleeping two whilst possible would be tight (not such a problem if you were already on intimate terms), especially if you were storing kit in there as well. The entrance is a tight fit for me but do-able and for one person has just enough room for you and your kit. In my opinion this tent is solely for sleeping in, if you intend to spend time in it because you day isn't filled it's far too small, but heh who does that anyway! that's why you are looking at it.
I never suffered any rain whilst using it, the inside did not get damp and and the mesh doors let it breathe. How it would fair in a storm I could only guess, but basically this is a summer season tent which if it only lasts one season won't break the bank.
It packs away easy, is light, goes up easy, it's cheap and it will give you somewhere to sleep for 2/3 nights (or longer if you are harder then me).I suspect it won't last years and will probably suffer in a storm (but you buy what you get). My mates laughed at me because it looked liked something from a toy store (but when I was loaded up I didn't look like a vagrant), so if nothing it will give you something to laugh over.
Four stars because the two man bit is pushing it a bit.
Yes it packs small.
Yes it is light loaded.
Yes you will be able to sleep in it alone even if you are over six footbut not seven!
Yes you will be able to sleep two if you are small and friendly (very) and have little kit.
Yes it will keep you dry, but a storm I don't know...perhaps.
Yes some people will laugh at it and you!
No it will not make you attractive to the opposite sex!
Hope this helps.
