But it rained all night, and when i woke up, there were puddles everywhere!!
But im fairly confident, now that ive sufficiently coated it with water sealant it won't happen again... I even sprayed it with the hose and the water just beaded up and rolled right off the nylon...
Ill update after my next trip... You should also buy some stronger tent stakes, these will bend on you...
** so i took it out again, and yes it did indeed rain, was out for 4 days and it probably rained 40% of the time.
Good news is it held up, I put 3 coats of the KIWI Camp Dry on it, the rain fly too. and it held up ok... The tent was on a downward slope so the water didn't settle underneath and flowed away from me which i assume helped.
Ive been using a hammock a lot lately, but next time i use the Tent again, ill let you know if its still waterproof after not being touched for awhile....
With the old tent set up next to the new one, I was amazed. Whaddya know! They are the same freaking tent! The new one has more adult colors, but the material and construction are dead on the same.
It is light weight, but the packed length is about 24" long, too long to fit in my pack. The poles are total crap, worse even than the afore mentioned kids tent's poles.
2 people will fit, but their heads and their feet will be in contact with the tent walls.
Metal hardware has sharp edges that can cut you and the tent (found that out very quickly).
Overall, this one is a real stinker for the price. The seller has a 25% "restocking" fee on all returns, so that in addition to shipping means it's not even worth returning this tent.
And yes, I was trying to cheap out and I got burned. At least W-Mart has a decent return policy. But I'll just spend the money on a good name brand tent.
If you are a gear snob, or a tall person, this is NOT the tent for you. I am a 5'2" female and I have plenty of room for me and my pack. Two people? Not so much, unless we were VERY friendly. (-; The ventilation is comfortable, the zippers work well. There's a little loop at the apex of the roof that is perfect to clip my LED light.
However, I must agree with the other reviewers on one issue: she ain't so watertight. But we aren't talking rivers, either. I camped in this tent in a HEAVY downpour (lasted 3+ hours) and many other tents were swamped.
(I chose a little hill so maybe I got lucky.) In any case, after the rain stopped, only 2 cups of water inside, which I was easily able to sop up with a tshirt. This is with no prior rain treatment, just "out of the box".
The water came in from one side seam at the BOTTOM, not through the roof of the tent, so I suspect some seam sealer and waterproof spray will solve this problem in future.
Otherwise I have been thrilled with this tent as far as durability, portability, etc. It is a very thin material, (which is why it is so light). I have not been particularly nice to it, but after a full fall/summer of camping last year - no issues. It has been dragged around the dirt, stuffed haphazardly into my not-so-organized pack, and even balled up fully loaded with gear and thrown into my hatchback for a quick getaway when it got too cold. So far, not one rip. For the price, I would highly recommend this tent.
