This Wild Country product is guaranteed to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 2 years from purchase.
Bought this tent to replace my Coleman Bedrock, which is a very similar design. I also treated myself to the groundsheet/footprint as this was the reason I had to replace the Bedrock (hole in the bottom).
I am not disappointed with this tent at all. It is slightly bigger than the Bedrock and the addition of the second pole at the foot end keeps the tent away from your feet. The poles are made of aluminium instead of fibreglass. Hopefully that will prevent them from breaking as quickly!
After pitching it for the first time and attaching the inner, I can put this up in about 3 mins. Putting it away is even easier. Leave the inner attached and you can have it in the bag in one minute!
Once packed away it is very compact and easy to carry in a backpack or on a bike.
My only criticism is that the zip for the inner doors only has one zipper. When it's done up the zip is at your feet. Would be much more comfortable to have this near the head end or, better still, have two zippers.
