Observations:

Waterproofing - 600mm hydrostatic rating - this is incredibly low and any rating below 1000mm isn’t considered to be waterproof. To be honest, I didn’t know that the rating even went this low but after some research I discovered that this is the same rating that most Ozark tents have which explains why they are perform so badly in the rain.

Keep in mind that for every person who says that their Ozark tent didn’t leak there are ten people who had bad experiences. If you got lucky, good for you. Moving on.

I’ve never seen a company refer to vents as climate control before.

Electronic pass through - can bugs get through?

I will be reviewing this tent honestly and with an open mind just as I do with all products that I test out. I purchased this with my own money and the only agenda here to is to provide information so that you can make an educated purchase decision.
