/ Hilleberg Nallo 2 Leaking
My question is has anyone had any similar experiences? Is it likely to be a faulty fly maybe? I know these tents aren't taped sealed as they are double stitched but I thought they would be hold the water out better than this. Its only leaking from this one place after a sustained soaking. I spoke to the dealer and Scottish Mountain Gear they both suggested a smothering of seam grip on the leaky seam but after spending so much on a mountain tent I thought I wouldn't need to.
Where did you buy it Rob?
Hi, it might be worth contacting Hilleberg directly to see what they say. Their tents are top drawer and not cheap and as such I'd expect that they won't give you the runaround.
FWIW, I had an Akto which I seam sealed and I have a Nallo 3GT which I haven't seam sealed and have had no leakage issues, including a couple of incessantly piss wet weekends in the Lakes and Scotland.
I bought it at Taunton Leisure Hay, who have been very good about the issue and have either suggested dropping it back to them to send to Hilleburg (Scottish Mountain Gear I guess for a look) or just use some seam grip in the area its leaking. Although it makes sense to probably just seam grip the seam its just I would have expected a tent of this cost to hold the water out and if others havent had any problems I'll probably send it back.
Are the seams taped?
Most lightweight tents don't have taped seems, because of the materials.
Some companies advise you seam sealing them yourself.
IMO this is part of the compromise you accept when buying products designed to be lightweight, if it was leaking everywhere it would be different.
