slightly disappointed

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Liz in Mendocino from California on Thursday, May 5, 2016
I bought this tent to live in for the spring and summer while I do work trade on a farm in Northern California. I've had a 2 person Alps brand tent for a couple years that I absolutely love but its a little small to live in so I decided to upgrade to a four person. I was pretty disappointed to find out that its not waterproof. My two person has been through many rainy camping trips with never a leak but this one leaked the day after I put it up in a small rain shower. I thought I'd be in good shape with the "bathtub bottom" made out of tarp material but it seems to be leaking between where the rain fly ends and tarp material begins. Its not enough water to get soaked but a lot of my things did get damp. I didn't want to go through the trouble of sending it back so I bought an extra tarp and keep a towel handy inside. Luckily the rainy season is almost over.

That being said I love how easy it is to assemble and the size is great. I wish the window was a little bigger but the zippers are all smooth and I have no other complaints.
