Things You Should Know

Under certain conditions (cold weather, high humidity, etc.) condensation will form on the inside surfaces of your tent. Condensation is caused by water vapor from your breath, perspiration, or any wet clothing inside your tent. It is NOT LEAKAGE through the tent fabric. It can be minimized by removing wet clothing from your tent and by providing good ventilation through the tent.

Never store tent, even for a short period of time, without drying it thoroughly and brushing off caked dirt. Do not pack stakes or poles inside your tent. Use separate storage bag.

STAKES SHOULD BE REMOVED BY PULLING ON THE STAKE ITSELF. NEVER PULL ON THE TENT FABRIC OR TENT STAKE LOOP TO REMOVE STAKE.

TENT POLES SHOULD NOT BE LEFT TELESCOPED

TOGETHER DURING STORAGE.

Seam sealer has not been provided with your tent. For additional protection we recommend seam sealing your tent prior to camping. Seam sealer may be purchased through your local retailer or at your local sporting goods store.
