    This review was really helpful to take extra measures for water resistance.

    Step 1- Order the tent
    Step 2- Order TENT SEAM SEALER
    Step 3- Order Rain Fly (no brainer people)
    Step 4- When tent arrives excitedly open box, and set up in the living room (optional, and be sure to check with your spouse first as this did not go over well with mine)
    Step 5- Take down tent from living room and set up again outside....Use the seam sealer around ALL seams inside and outside the tent liberally (or follow directions on sealant product)
    Step 6- Put rainfly on tent
    Step 7- Connect garden hose and prepare leaf blower for weather simulation testing.
    Step 8- After waiting desired time for sealant to set, simulate various types of rain storms from gentle drizzle to driving hurricane force rain (do this at your own risk and be sure to roll up windows on your spouses car when aiming simulated rain in that direction)
    Step 9- Now using your leaf blower blast your tent with simulated wind levels from gentle meadow breezes to Hurricane Level 4 winds if you have a 4 speed leaf combo snow blower (again, do this at your own risk)
    Step 10- Stake down your tent THEN redo step 9, then apologize to your spouse for crushing her flowers.

    I tried this tent out over memorial day weekend. It rained for 8-10 hours straight and not a drop got inside. the only moisture was the condensation generated by 2 adults and 3 kids sleeping in the tent. Stayed dry! We bought the rain fly so I am sure that helped a bit.
