I am very happy with this purchase. The tent is perfect for my needs, its easy to assemble and big enough for me and my two young kids. At about ten pounds, its lightweight but also robust, which was an important aspect for me (my kids are rough). I am glad that the overture is in the front only, makes it easier for supervision and there is plenty of space for the extra gear. I haven’t tried it in the rain yet but I’m pretty sure it will meet my expectations. At that price, it was a no brainer! Thank you Geartrade and Hotcore for this great product.

polyester vs nylon
Polyester fabric has advantages over nylon when used as a tent rainfly. Polyester is more UV resistant, so exposure to the sun’s rays will not degrade the fabric as quickly as nylon. Also, polyester does not stretch when dealing with water and rain. This allows the entire tent to maintain its proper shape, thereby continuing to protect you from further rain and wind.
Poly Weatherproof
The polyester rainfly and floor have a PU coating to keep the water out. For example, with a 1500mm coating, the fabric can withstand a 1500mm column of water for more than one minute before a drop might work its way through this fabric. That is good enough to stop rain in most hurricane storms.
Poly Weatherproof
All 3 of our Discovery family tents are manufactured with heavy-duty polyester floors. The floors are coated with a PU waterproof coating and factory seam taped. These floors are more durable than PE tarp floors, with a much longer life, and more able to resist damage from rocks, twigs, roots, and footwear. And unlike PE tarp floor they are quiet to sleep on. They cost a bit more, but if you want a better family tent, this is what you want.
