I just got this tent it is m third from the same distributor. I had a five by five then a four by eight and now the eight by eight by six feet five inches. This was the easiest to put up but laying out the area and getting power to it is not so easy do to size and where I have to put it.. It has steel pulls it is 600D oxford cloth with diamond Mylar it is readily. These tent can take it day in day out non stop I open the zippers three or four times a day for years. I like these tents they are not expensive they have dual drawstring 10 inch and 8 inch and 6 inch and two 4 inch holes. They have removed the middle pole and the center pole by reinforcing the side poles with bigger diamteter poles they said it is just as stiff if not better will see. I dig the way the floor is clear of poles. I will update in a bit when I have things really going.
