This isn't so much of a review as it is a general observation and response to the first comment above. As an experienced camper, it is my humble opinion that before you pitch your tent for the very first time out in the field or on the mountain that you take it upon yourself to seal all the seams throughout with a reputable brand of "seam sealer," and let the tent stand for 24 hours or so to let the sealer cure.
Nearly any tent, regardless of its cost, will leak at the seams if it is not properly seam sealed. Some manufacturers make the claim that they seam seal their tents, but it is still highly recommended that you seam seal the tent yourself to ensure it will not let you down in the event a tent manufacturer did a shoddy job on the sealing.
And, here's a little tip as far as the application goes — pitch your tent first and then seal the seams, as some of the sealers can be pretty sticky. If the nylon material isn't stretched out it can have the effect of gluing together where it shouldn't.
