I had however, added some stronger pegs and a few more guys so I can't be sure the tent as is out of the box would have done as well. Still, if y I go camping without good pegs and extra line in case of storm... Well, that's on you ;)
The tent is roomy and well aerated, I've never had a problem with humidity though it does get quite cold at night and there is always a bit of a breeze.
It was not easy to put up by myself but it took no more than 30 minutes with help. It is fairly heavy to carry for long periods of time.
All in all, I'm quite happy with it so far, especially considering it's a cheaper tent. I would wish for more guy anchors, especially on the walls themselves and an attached groundsheet for the porch but all in all, I'd recommend.
We'll see now if it handles the next couple of weeks as well ;)
Edited a month and 1/2 later: well, I lived in the tent in the Orkneys for a month and a half almost uninterrupted. The tent did alright though the waterproofing was suffering towards the end and severely sections of poles snapped after a while. Eventually, too many split to keep the tent up even in a low-moderate breeze so I had to pack it in and move to the hostel. I'm not unhappy with it though, considering it did put up with a couple of weekends of strong gusts and nearly constant rain. For the price, I feel I got good value. I might buy new poles and keep the tent for milder climes while I buy a better tent for rougher camping.
It was also very easy to take down and roll up again and put in the bag.
The only downsides:
- Pegs were not the best, so might be worth getting some better ones, however these did alright
- The guide ropes are black so hard to see at night, so you might want to make them more visible somehow
- May not be the best choice for experienced campers, as some of my friends who were, weren't that sold on it
Note: Definitely invest in more steel pegs, as they aren't the strongest of steel and tend to bend, break and get lost (they're relatively few and scarce!)
