Why It's CoolThe freestanding Sage didn't budge during 80-mile-per-hour gusts—its aerodynamic three-pole architecture lies low. » You can't go wrong with the unique color-coded strap-and-buckle design that accepts the pole ends in tidy slots. » Two see-through windows are great for starry nights. Mesh canopy panels, a mesh D door, and a fly vent flushed out dead air. On humid nights, a small plastic awning stiffener invites you to partially zip down the vestibule door for more venting yet still keep the rain out. » A two-day drizzle that left puddles around the Sage didn't penetrate the bathtub floor.

Hmmm . . .With the low-slung design, I couldn't sit up straight. The 27-square-foot floor is Squash City for two six-footers.
