KÖPPEN Hamr 3 Person Tent
Excellent for the money.
I've owned tons of tents and this is one of the best. The tent construction is great, the stakes and poles are high quality, and the rain fly is more than adequate. The window is pretty cool, but other reviews state that they dislike the lack of privacy. If you go on long camping/ backpacking with friends, then I promise that you've seen them at their worst moments, so privacy is the least of my concerns when it comes to purchasing a tent, but if the need did arise to have privacy (in a family campground) then most people would take their huge family tents instead of buying a tent meant for wilderness camping.
The first time I set it up was at 10:00 pm and it only required 5-10 minutes of my time. I spent the night in it with one of my buddies and the temperature went in to the lower 40's but it remained closer to 50 in the tent. There was a variable wind that night that blew between 10 and 15 mph all night and I felt air circulating but never any more. I woke up the next morning and it didn't feel like an oven inside and there was no condensation to be found.
Also, when I took the tent home, I set it up in my back yard and hosed it down and did not get one drop of water inside.

I like everything about the tent except that all our stuff got wet. It was pouring rain and actually the tent held up very well; it was the dew that got us. Within 45 minutes of setting up the tent (hours before it started raining) the entire floor area was wet. I definitely want a refund as I will not be using this tent again.

Good Tent For the Money
Took this tent on a recent trip to WV over 4 nights and it held up well. There was some condensation on the inner tent wall even with the rainfly on the whole time. Still, the tent didn't leak from the top and the floor of the tent remained dry. Wish it had no-seeum mesh on the door and no window for more privacy. For the money, I'm happy with this purchase.

For the price point you cant beat the quality (just try to find a tent at this price point with aluminumn poles). I have only had the opportunity to go on a one night camping trip with this tent and the set up was easy, one person can do it. It is a little tight for three people, very comfortable for two. did have an issue with condensation on the underside of the fly, but it was cool and humid with no wind (cant blame the tent for that). Great little tent for backpacking, packs small and fairly ligh.

Good Design But Leaks
Used 1 night with kids in backyard. Nice easy set up and liked the overall design. Definately seemed to be of good quality. Didn't like the window in the vestible nor that there was no screen privacy cover over the main entrance. The tent leaked a lot overnight during a unexpected rain. I will return as this is unexceptable.

nice tent, few drawbacks
The only problems i have with this tent are: A) there is a plastic window on the door of the rain cover that makes it impossible to have complete privacy without modification and i feel that over years of sun and use, this window could become brittle and crack. It really strikes me as an unnecessary feature. B) the "front porch" of the tent (between the tents screen door and the rain covers door) is very small, although there is pole at the top to open the space a little, its really not enough. You can keep wet or muddy shoes in it but taking the shoes off without makeing a mess could be difficult especially for larger people. Other than these the tents nice. Easy to set up, put away, and waterproof so long as youre not in a flood :P

High Quality and Worth Every Penny
VERY EASY to assemble. The poles (aluminium, not plastic), the stakes, and the tent are all top-notch and high quality. Also, it packs away into an unbelievably convenient small compression bag that easily fit on the back of my motorcycle, which is a sportbike and doesn't have lots of room.

We just used this tent for the 1st time last week. Set up was easy, and it was nice and spacious for two adults. The window on the door was a little wierd...Our friends could see in when they walked by. But the reason I'm returning it is because of the leaking. It rained that night, and water was leaking in through the zipper (or the seam covering the zipper) of the rainfly...which would be ok if it wasn't directly covering a mesh door. Every drip onto the mesh splashed through onto my face. It was definitely an oversight in the design. Unfortunately.

Nice tent for the money
Used the tent right away after purchase. The tent did it's job. Didn't cost a lot either. I would buy again.
