    Camped out last year, got 6" of rain overnight. Have not sealed the pull outs yet. Never been wet under the tarp yet.

    Smile My Superfly leaks

    Before you head off , make sure you seal the circular fabric attachment points for the 4 side tie outs.I got caught in torrential rain and got wet >(Should have known better). Luckily I could put my Ogee 11 over the top of it.Gotta buy some seam sealer..............

    Just had mine out in the mountains in CT and NY. It poured rain. And it was so windy that I swear it was raining sideways for a long while. It was blowing so hard that I was concerned that I was going to have to do some middle of the night restaking or other such irritating nonsense. As a matter of fact, the campsite that we had to pitch our shelters in was an absolute wind tunnel. What the planners were thinking when they decide to use THIS place for an official campsite is beyond me.

    None of my concerns came to fruition though . The stakes stayed in place and I stayed warm and bone dry. The Superfly maintained its waterproof integrity under truly nasty conditions. It's a wonderful design. It was even large enough for my buddy and me to cook under it with my gear scattered about.

    The Superfly's doors were absolutely fantastic. I had mine battened down tight; and I stayed warm and dry the entire time. I will say that the two tie-outs I have on each side of the tarp were absolutely critical to keeping everything yar.

    Under normal conditions, I'll pack a lighter tarp. But if I know that heavy weather is coming my way... The Superfly comes with Dave.

    +1 to what Bird said.

    Get some SilNet and seal those pullouts. I sealed inboard and outboard and stayed bone dry.
