Great price. The weak point is probably the cheap alloy in the centre pole, it usually is even with more expensive tents.
How about a cheap modular shelter using 2 of these with a biggish tarp connecting them?

That's quite an idea. Certainly worth looking into. Am guessing it would depend on how well you could seal the connection between the two tipis.

hahaha hey that fabulous piece of crap (screw political correctness ;D) has been keeping me dry and warm for
a few seasons now. Best 100 bucks I've spent on gear for a long time :o

This tent is now on clearance.  About US$40 for non-membership price.
