and long, low to the ground; shaped like a 9-foot long, 3.5-foot diameter cylinder cut in half lengthwise and laid on the ground. Made for one person only. The "roof" is entirely made of fine-mess screening, so you can see the sky (and the skeeters, too). A rain fly is included (good idea). I like the design and general concept, but I like to have a little space to stretch, too. I'm not sure about a shelter you can't even sit upright in. Anyone have any experiences with this or another similar model you'd like to share? TIA... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
