User Review: Mountain Hardwear Waypoint 1
Bought my Waypoint 1 four years ago, and used it about 4 times in that year. Haven't used it since and just stored it inside my closet. I set it up in my yard last night in preparation for a four-day backpack nearby in Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
The smell of some fabric chemical (silicone? polyurethane?) was awful inside the tent, something I had not noticed before. I thought that airing it out for about 24 hours might do the trick. I just went to check on it now, and about 50% of the welded seams on the tent have completely separated. Looks like they were never welded together. It's just useless and flapping in the breeze.
Needless to say, I'm more than mad and disappointed, after what I paid for this tent. Today's high temp. was about 96 degrees, but that shouldn't melt all the seams of this tent! It's a 3-season tent, which includes the heat of the summer!
Since I bought it 4 years ago at REI, it's doubtful that either Mountain Hardwear or REI will do anything to replace or refund the tent, so I guess I'm just out all that money and forced to buy a new tent over the next few days. Extremely upset...
