The Meramac series tents are all free standing 2-pole designs with shock corded fiberglass or aluminum ferrules. The ferrules are the "connectors" that hold the poles together and we use aluminum, rather than steel, because aluminum can never rust. Our fiberglass poles are also normally one size larger than normal to offer you a sturdier, stronger tent. We use lightweight but strong polyester fabrics. The side walls are uncoated so the tent can "breathe" under the urethane coated fly. The fly uses a pole in the top, which gives you an awning over each door for excellent rain protection. Our fly is full length on the sides, not 3/4 length like some others, for better weather protection. We even have our factory seal the seams on the floor and fly for maximum water repellency. Entry and exit are enhanced with 2 doors, which means if you have to get out at night, you don't need to crawl over the others to get to the only door. The second door is also nice for extra ventilation in hot, muggy weather. Our door zippers are a #8, which is one size larger than most, for extra durability. Mesh storage pockets and a gear loft are included to help you keep your gear organized.

***The floor is water resistant, not water proof. For example, I used a 7mm tarp as a base to protect against sharp rocks, sticks, etc. and also extra moisture resistance...2 days of solid rain in Colorado resulted in significant water pools between the tarp and the tent floor. It was completely dry at first, but by morning the tent floor was feeling damp. No pools of water inside the tent, but I wonder if another day in that weather would have done it. Holds up very well against the weather otherwise and the tent windows are very nice to have in warm weather. Highly recommend.
