All the waterproofing peeled off the roof after one camping trip

Reviewed by WA Kayaker & Hiker from WA on Thursday, October 17, 2013
The tent is defective and is not a Wenger tent. Apparently this batch of tents was made with defective waterproofing on the fly. We took the tent out for a week-long camping trip, and by the end of the week, all of the waterproofing began to peel off the underside of the fly. I suppose a person could buy a bunch of cans of waterproofing spray and try to waterproof the tent's roof, but why go through all that trouble and still have a leaky roof. So unless you want to sleep in a swimming pool every time it rains ... Buy a different brand of tent - this one is defective.
Also- We found out Wenger did not make this tent, nor is it Swiss. It is made in Vietnam on the same low-quality production line that makes Walmart tents. I found this out when I called Wenger about the tent's warranty on the defective roof. Wenger said its not their tent , and they don't honor the warranty ... they just sold their Wenger name to this company that makes these cheap tents. So ... I called this other company, and the company denies it ever made the tent, end of story. So ... be warned - these tents have a defective Roof and no warranty, and are NOT made by Wenger!.
