Sitting in a puddle of my own despairI just bought this tent for myself, for a trip with my family across the states. Tonight is the first of many nights I was supposed to use it. When searching for a reliable tent for the journey, I spent quite a while looking through my options. I came across this model by recommendation of the staff. There was an incredibly similar model by another manufacturer for a third of the price, but I chose this tent because it was so highly rated and recommended for rain and storms, which I had expected at some point or another. Tonight, our very first night on this adventure, and the very first time this tent was used, it rained. I already had it set up and ready, so I wasn't concerned about it. 10-15 minutes into the rain, I noticed it starting to get... Wet. I payed no mind to it, because I expected condensation from breathing and whatnot.. I've been camping numerous times in all seasons, from the middle of winter, to heavy rains of spring, and I know that moisture is to be expected to some degree. To some degree. Not a half an hour into this rain, and tent was dripping from the seams all over the inside. I did whatever I could to combat it, but the dripping continued to a pretty substantial leak. Mind you, I scoured this tent to make sure there weren't any holes or gaps in the rainfly that water may be entering through, but after careful inspection I could see clear as day that water was seeping through all of the seams. Needless to say, it continued to get worse, yet I have nowhere else to go, but sit in this puddle of my own despair... Loathing this decision, and drafting up this thesis of a bad review. $150 on a leaky 3 person tent, when the rest of my family is in a $60 4 person tent with half the storm rating... Dry as can be. I've had some crazy camping experiences, but this is most definitely the worst. On the bright side, the floor is perfectly waterproof. I know this because the water just keeps pooling as I type away. I just hope that when I return this product, which I definitely will, they'll make this right for recommending me such a defective piece of equipment.
