Dear Trailspace,
Compliments for your website!
My name is Davide and I'm writing you from Vicenza, Italy.
I'm writing you because I need of information about the tents of mountaneering.
I'm looking for a tent for a use in Italy's mountain for all season.
This tent must withstand snow in winter, rain and storm in spring and autumn.
My questions are:

Many models use the fly in polyester with the sewing taped, but others models use the fly in nylon ripstop coated in silicone elastomer.
-Which is the best?
-The nylon ripstop coated silcone elastomer is waterproof like polyester?
-And in wet conditions?

Thank you very much for your collaboration

Silcone coated flys are lighter and don't stretch when they get wet as much as ripstop nylon. It is just as waterproof. The silicone coated flys don't pass fire resitance regulations for some places and are unavailable there. Check out Moss tents for lightweight bombproof mountaineering tents w/ silcone coated flys.
