I've been up most of Britain's tallest peaks, so rather than take a hardcore mountain tent, I decided to buy this for some summer camping at Le Mans 24 hour race.
Worst mistake I made.
It was drizzling when I arrived and continued to rain for most of the night. I woke in the night to find my sleeping bag was soaked. It looked like the inner and outer were touching and there was little to no ventilation to help with moisture removal.
The next day I tried again, repegging everything and trying to make it work, and although this time it didn't rain, again it wasn't enjoyable. A lot of moisture built up in the tent and essentially it felt like I was in a wet coffin.
My conclusion is the inner and outer are too close together, though it has a long length, the low rise from the front and back of the tent make the effective length inside the tent very small. At 6'3" it appeared it would be spacious, but it was anything but. No room for 2 people unless you sleep onto of the other.
Overall, really really bad and a waste of £60 as I bought another tent for É20 immediately.
