Poor Floor Material.
This tent was fine in fair weather, but then i had to stay in it during a three day rain event. After 24 hours the floor became damp. After 48 it was properly wet. After 72 hours everything was drenched. I think most of the water was coming in through the floor seams but the floor material itself was waterlogged as well. If floor was made better and from a more water proof material the tent would have been fine.

This tent is really spacious - enough room for 3 persons if hiking, or two with lilos for car camping. Good flow-through and good storage space under vestibules.
