It leaks, zippers almost impossible, and packing bag!!
It starts with 5 stars and then goes down hill. I was excited to use it the first time, and the conditions were perfect for a test. A cold morning turned into a snow storm. Setting up was fine, and things were good; I was happy about my purchase. However, the zippers have a hang up at the main door turn, just too tight, another inch of material would solve this. Then the snowstorm. I had a heater going inside the shelter, thus the snow was melting on the roof, as it rolled off, some water would collect in the window/material seam and leak in the shelter. REALLY? A simple water barrier around the window before sewn in would have solved this. Now try to put the thing away in the bag. It's one thing paying $15 for a fold up chair, but when you're spending hundreds, you would think a few more inches of circumference of material for the packing bag would make the experience a whole lot more enjoyable. I just don't think the designer is an outdoor person, to allow this kind of product to be developed with these shortcomings. Buy the FRABIL
Beware of the wind
Overall an excellent ice shelter However if the wind comes up be sure to have not only the bottom anchored but the walls as well. a Strong gust will cause it to go airborne and rip the bottom anchors loose from the shelter
