At 38 peak height inchs i thought it may be small.. but i was surprised is was very spacious. Perfect for me and my dog! Ventilation was great in all four corners plus the main window. Had very little condensation. This tent really feels like a fort! with the small windows on both ends of the tent. This was my first backpacking tent, and the tad bit extra weight, is worth it with the fabrics used. I would totally recommend this tent to a friend. And it does not break the bank account.
