Bought this tent for my outdoors adventures. As I'll either be hiking or biking the weight was the number one factor.
After researching a lot, I really mean A LOT (days and days), this tent got my attention and I decided to go for it due to the weight, price and reviews.
As a one man tent I was afraid it would be quite claustrophobic. Nop, there is plenty of space! I never tried but I'm quite sure it can handle 2 persons inside, but you'll have to be cuddling :)
At the bottom there is enough space for a backpack and if you are only one person inside there is also space on the sides for another backpack.
On the cover over the entrance there is only space for your shoes or something the size of your shoes, this is the only downside. It can take like 3 pair of shoes or something the size of 3 pair of shoes, I use it to leave my bottles of water and my shoes.
I'm 1m76cm tall and I can seat inside but I've to bow down my neck/head. I can also manage to change clothes inside, trousers, tshirt and underwear with more or less effort but it is doable and not such a big hassle.
5-10min to build up the tent but with practice you can do it in 5min easily.
As I'm always on the move, I just use the tent to sleep, this is the perfect tent. If you want a tent where you can go camping for days at the same place and spend time inside the tent this may not be what you are looking for. It can be if you go to a place where there are already tables, chairs and stuff outside, then you just use the tent to sleep and keep your stuff at safe.
I can only say good things about this tent.
I used Fedex express and got my tent next day! I'm in Portugal and it was delivered from Ireland. Super impressive!

Hi tent has proven itself when it comes to spreading a more efficient, the weather was perfect in Norway, so I have no experience when it comes to resistance to leaking and the good thing is that there is water inside which is good ventilation I hope that the same will be good at bad weather

I have used many different Bivvy's over the years some very expensive. I found this Jack Wolfskin en excellent value for money.
I would recommend Surf Mountain to anyone purchasing camping equipment on the internet, fast post and excellent 5* service.
