Light Family Tent
I love this tent. It fits my family of 4 and the dog with room to spare. I know 5 man tent, but the dog is a royal pain and we give the 6 month old lots of space. It worked well in the wind and it has worked well in the rain, but we need more practice setting it up without getting water inside. The floor was very waterproof as evidenced by the 2-3 puddles that resulted from setting up during a downpour and didn't drain until we took it down the next day. It is surprisingly sturdy given our dog did not puncture the floor--though I don't think he was trying. But I wouldn't test the fly. Light enough to save my back. Sturdy enough to last. Sweet tent. Sweet Price.

backpacking family tent!!!
Got this tent for my wife and 2 kids and dog could backpack with me, without killing me after carrying the coleman special a couple of times. It provides excellent wind stability (June in the Uintas) as well as is very waterproof (October in the Wasatch). I had trouble keeping water out of the tent while setting it up in a rain storm, but the water puddled nicely, and I think the practice it could be setup more easily to keep the rain out. I am excited to use it more.

Great all around tent for Alaska
I have used this tent in Alaska the two last season and will be taking it along this season. I split this with a friend, making it one of (if not the most) roomiest tents for the weight. Keeps us and our gear bone dry with plenty of room to spare for long rainy days or when feeling hospitable and letting others join when their tents fail or are too cramped when waiting out the weather. My absolute favorite aspect of this tent is that due to the design, CO2 from your breath stays at the apex and so do the mosquitos! Despite using only the fly on one trip where there were many AK mosquitos, we were not bitten once; those that got in stayed harmlessly at the top. Despite having far too many bivys and single wall 3&4 season mountaineering tents, this is my go to tent for extended trips in extreme weather destinations. It has not let me down!

Great Flexable Tent
Used this with famliy of 4 - 2 adult 2 teenagers in the ADKs. Great tent held up well in all conditions so far - wind, rain and more rain. Great room to sleep and keep gear inside. Being able to standup is a bonus at 6'1". Used mostly as a hike in base camp. The footprint is big for some campsites so plan accordingly. Also great customer support from GL - they bend over backwards to assist you.
