Overall I think it's a great tent. Not a lot of extras. It seems to be very well built. Setup is extremely easy. Stake down the top part, attach the poles, pull on the foot of it and stretch it out and it pretty much stands up on its own. Great ventilation without the fly on, and with the fly theres a vent at the top that can be accessed through a zipper at the top of the mesh inside. Adequate elbow room, and I can sit up insdie comfortably.
Then comes the question of keeping your gear dry in foul weather, and this vestibule honestly does not provide much room to harbor gear, but it is there. There is one on the opposite ("rear") side that is inaccessable because the is not door on the "rear" side of the tent. It is usable if you put stuff in before you get in the tent. I threw a Nalgene in there to show some scale. So ill be able to keep some water bottles, boots, my stove, etc. in there.
