twilmotte Posted March 13, 2007 Share Posted March 13, 2007 I just bought a new tent and set it up in the back yard before a big rainstorm. When I checked it out this morning I noticed there is rainwater leaching through the fly fabric and dripping on down through the mesh onto the floor of the tent. The fly doesn't seem to repel/bead water like the fly on my Coleman Exponent tent. I bought the new tent for more room, but I think "dry" is more important than "roomy." I called the manufacturer (Eureka) and they told me they couldn't send me another fly for that tent model until they tested my fly; they gave me a return auth number; they said it will take about 3 to 4 weeks; I have to pay to ship the fly to them. My question is this: Has anyone had good luck with a Scotchguarding tent material? Or is there another product out there that will work to cause water to bead up and roll off the surface of nylon rather than soak through? I hate to send the fly into Eureka and lose the use of the tent for 3 to 4 weeks (plus pay about $7 to mail it to them). Link to comment
