Been looking at tents and have noticed that the more expensive and lighter tents on for example the Terra Nova website state that they are not factory sealed and therefore not fully waterproof. Are you likely to wake up in the morning soaking wet after rain in the night or is it not that bad? Is adding seam sealer a big faff? I'm inclined to spend less and carry a bit more weight to wake up dry but open to opinions.
In reply to jwa: Seam sealing isn't a faff and is easy to do. TN used to supply a tube of sealer with they unsealed tents. Just run it along the stitching.
I've not done my Laser Comp and not woken up soaked, but I should probably get around to doing it. Don't know if my Ultra Quasar has been done, but so far no leaks anywhere despite plenty of rain to test it!
