This is my first canvas tent experience and I am 40 years old. First off, having a person answer the phone and remember who you are is pretty nice! They are also kind and responsive which is a bonus! The Highline 8 is big! It is heavy when it is all together, but it is pretty darn easy to put up and take down. I enjoy not having lines staked out to trip on everywhere. Most everything about it seems well made. Oh and it is very quiet compared to all my other tents! I do wish I would have called to talk out my situation before I purchased as I wonder if two four person tents might have been better than one bigger one. It would give my family and I a little more flexibility. But anyways, I am impressed thus far!
