So, we bought this tent because we are frequent festival goers and the tent we had been using had had enough. When we first set it up before traveling out to Arkansas for Wakarusa Festival, we were concerned because the back of the tent is a complete open window with just a rainfly covering it, and no way to close the window. We had heard there was going to be rain and were concerned, but decided to give it a try.
Little did we know, it wasn't just rain, it was a lightning thunderstorm that completely encompassed the entire festival grounds with 70 MPH winds and lasted nearly all night for about 12 hours. We were told to evacuate the main venue and seek shelter in our cars. The storm was so bad that we couldn't even see out of the car to make sure our stuff wasn't being blown away.
By morning time we decided to get some sleep in our tent and were worried that there would be water everywhere. There was little to NO water in our tent. Not only that, it didn't even move an inch off the ground, while other peoples tents and canopies had been completely demolished.
I will say that if you are having reservations about getting this tent, take it from a frequent camper, that it is WORTH it. No other tent I have ever been in could have withheld what we went through that weekend. You will not be disappointed!
