Set up especially with you tube videos by Dan as well as others tell you how, 2-3 setups in backyard make it easy to learn. Take the 30-45 mins in back yard to set it up a few times before heading out. Good advice for most gear tbh.

It's pretty easy, especially after doing it once or twice. It's also easy to fiddle with it after it's basically up to make it exactly perfect. I usually tighten everything up once it's pitched by relocating any stakes slightly as necessary, and pushing each pole up a smidge higher from their initial pitch. I've had no problems with it in lots of wind (though I did once because the short stakes pulled right out of FL sand. Now that I have more appropriate stakes, I can set it up really quickly and it feels super sturdy, even in lots of wind and rain.

Very easy to set up. If there is going to be some wind, snow and/or heavy rain during the night, use the guy lines on the top, I have the tent sag slightly under some wet snow, it was still dry and warm inside, but I lost a few inch of height and lenght of the inner tent. If in any doubt, use the guy lines, it will never hurt, but it will sometimes help.

Watch the videos, then practice a few times. It takes some finessing, but once you get the insert in it's easier to sort. My biggest issue was getting over the mental hurdle that the insert isn't going to sit inside like you think it will - it's going to be a bit of an angle. Practice is going to be the best option to getting it down. I also don't remove the insert when I break it down, so there's one less thing I have to try and sort when putting it up again. I fold the insert into the middle and fold the rest of the tent around it so that the mesh stays protected.

Even if your rectangle is off after a long day the middle just sags a bit and the tent is still great to sleep in

It’s the easiest trekking pole tent to set up. This is because the shape is a rectangle and not some “funky” geometry. After a the first few times setting it up you should be able to do it in 5 minutes or less.

First time, 10 minutes, you'll have to do it twice. After that probably 3 minutes. Best tent I have owned.

I am not good at these things, but I can get an ok pitch every time in under 5mins. Getting a right angle on the 3rd peg out is surprisingly hard, but there is tolerance in normal conditions for an imperfect pitch. It's by far the easiest and quickest tent I have pitched or put away, and good value and obviously light weight.
