On a recent backpacking trip I was faced with a very rainy first day and had my first experience with my brand new Zenith tent. I was not at all happy with the fly arrangament which does not provide any coverage over the door opening when the vestibule is zipped open to allow access to the tent. Rain can easily enter the front of the tent while loading in sleeping bags, etc., and lots of it fell into the tent.
During the night the fly leaked excessivly through the fly/vestibule joint, leaking into the tent through the screen door. I am not at all happy with this tent and would not recommend it to anyone.
