We're a family of 5 and this is the only tent we take. Very easy to set up.
I really like this tent, partly because of how cool/different it looks but also because of the inner mesh. On a nice warm night, we decided to remove the outer tent and when you do, you can see all the stars all around, virtually unobstructed. One thing that’s a little annoying is that because it’s black, it looks a bit dirty if you camp in a dusty place. Took a while for me to spot clean it.
I’ve owned a bunch of large tents for my family but they’ve all been pretty ugly and hard to set up. The cheap ones lasted only a couple seasons. This one was easy and the footprint is even bigger than it looks in pictures. We also bought the table that goes with it and wraps around the middle pole. My kids loved playing cards around the table while being in the tent and out of range of the mosquitoes!
When I showed up to camp with this tent, people were so jealous. Looks nothing like other tents! Sleek.
