User Review: Bibler I-Tent
Price Paid: $450
I luv the ease of setup. Have only misplaced the pole placement once during setup and poked a hole in floor. The freestanding feature and relatively small footprint allows me to setup in small spaces as well as easily move my I-tent after setup if an annoying rock or too much slope is discovered after setup.
I do have to say that the condensation problem is annoying even with a 2-door model.
I recently had some liquid hand soap spill on my on my door flap and the rain causes a leak. I am not sure it is the liquid soap causing the problem or I need to seam seal the seam above and below the zipper for the door flap. I have rinsed the door flap with cold water trying to get the soap out. Has anyone else had a liquid soap spill on their tent and were able to get it out?
Does the liquid soap cause the Todd-tex to lose its waterproofness? If the waterproofness is lost does anyone have suggestions for stopping a leak on a small portion of the door flap?
I am currently on vacation in the Annapolis, MD, area and plan to seam seal the seam near the door flap today.. I will probably have to setup up on the inside to allow plenty of time for seam seal to dry as we expect more thundershowers today.
BTW, does anyone have any experience using the isopropyll (sp?) alcohol to clean seams (tent) before using the seam seal? is the alcohol cleaning necessary?
I will report back on the success or failure of my efforts to re-waterproof my 10 year old I-Tent.
