Summary: The Wenzel StarLight tent is best used for backyard camping or perfect weather, where bugs, not rain, are the only concern. I purchased this tent before I was knowledgeable of backpacking, and I quickly learned this is not a tent you want to depend on in inclement weather.
Pros: Weight, Cost
Cons: Useless in rain, Difficult to get in and out, No vestibule
Summary: As far as I am concerned this is the best tent for the money for cycling...You can spend more...but for a basic tent this is the cyclist choice...No rain fly...Everyone I have talked with, no matter how much they spent on their tent with a rain fly, gets wet..
Summary: I did a small cycling tour and needed something very small to throw together and take down quickly that didnt take up much space and this was spot on. My only real gripe (that I knew going into the purchase) was that it is not water proof.

Excerpt: Let me start with the good. This tent is very light and compact when packed up. Unfortunately it's too small for a person who is 6 foot tall. The way the door was designed was kind of silly, it is too short.
Good little tent if you are putting a cheap pack together.

Excerpt: Good little tent if you are putting a cheap pack together. I've used it about a dozen times. I'm getting a little large for it. Tough to get in and out of, but super light. I'm upgrading to a larger tent/pack but this thing is super light.
