John H.  John H. asked: Hi everyone! I'm really curious about this tent. I live in the PNW where it rains a lot and I need something that stays dry. I also really like rain flies with bigger vestibules to keep gear dry. Have you had experience using it in the rain? Thanks so much!

Hey there John! I've had a lot of experience using it in the rain on my thru-hike of the AT in 2018. It faired pretty well although I did experience some leaking which I fixed by seam sealing the tent with seam seal tape I got while on trail at Walmart and also re-waterproofed it with waterproofing silicone spray. After I did that I had no more issues with leaks. I had no issues with it ripping or anything during any tough storms. I would definitely recommend this tent for you, although perhaps doing a little after-care to ensure it keeps you dry. :-) Hope this helps! - Rachael - AKA Blade
