We have our new tent up as wanted to see if its waterproof as we have some pretty awful weather tonight (heavy rain, hail etc). Anyway, been out there to check and water coming in a bit, appears to be where there are toggles in the tent (through the seams there) and also at the top part of the tent where there is a weird bit up the top. There is a small net at the very top of the tent, poles outside that and then a cover over the top bit. The cover bit is really thin and water has got in a bit into the main living area.
My question is, is this normal? Its a cheapish tent from Argos but has good reviews. I obviously dont want to get wet and the weather we had tonight here where I am was pretty extreme. The tent is a 2000mm hydrostatic head. Are they meant to keep all the water out or just some? I dont know if I should take it back or not and get another one or just exchange it!!! Im new to camping and not too keen!!!!!!
