Known issues

Overall, people who have tried this tent have a very good opinion about it. However, some say that trying to fold the tent in cold weather can make your hands freeze, as the material tends to get rigid. It is recommended to bring warm clothes and gloves along with you, if you are planning a trip in an area where cold weather can be an issue.
