/ How waterproof are unsealed tents?
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!
Never sealed my ME dragon fly, ME back country or a MHW sprite, and all have bad days and nights of rain without any leaks
Hilleberges don't seem to need sealing.
I had to seem seal my last macpac tent, was maybe 30 minutes in the living room. Nothing like factory tape, the end result was tacky for ages and relatively fragile.
BD single skins are ok in very light rain, and a light tarp sorts the heavy stuff. Its the condensation thats the real issue.
Sealing the seams isnt hard. Set up indoors and use a syringe.
