I was able to get my tent back up. There was a little chip out of the T connector, but it's still fine. The felxible bar still goes in far enough.
The only other issue, is when taking the tent down, I was in a hurry cause it was a snowy mess and cold, and I pulled from the tent to pull the stakes up and one of the loops broke. My bad.
I would/did get the 10x14 and I think you'll want that for 2-3 people. I wouldn't go smaller. By the time you get clothes hanging, table in there, a couple chairs, it gets tight.
I used the buddy heater in mine. My hunt was really windy and cold, so the buddy heater helped, but didn't keep it warm alone. Since then, I have upgraded to the more powerful heater with the fan. Hopefully that works better next year.
