I purchased this tent from Sports Authority over a year ago. We used it twice last year, 2001. The tent was great (no rain).

I used it once this year, 2002. We had rain most of the weekend, and unfortunately there was more water in my tent than outside. I did seal all seams before and after with no luck.

At first I was questionable about buying a tent made by "Great Basin" but further information from the sales associate at the Spots Authority informed me that the tent was actually made by Quest for the Sports Authority. So, knowing that it was made by a reliable co. such as Quest, I gave it a shot.

I seam sealed the tent and about an hour after the sealant had dried I got aboout 3 to 4 hours of heavy solid downpour. After the rain subsided I checked the tent for leaks and there was only 1 tiny droplet of water in 1 of the corners. The tent also has the UV-Tex 5 protective coating on the walls, roof, and fly, which helps against those harmful Florida rays I get. All in all the tent was a graet purchase in my opinion.
