Great price for a decent brand. I need to do a bit more research before I take the plunge

I cant do that for you,but to put it into perspective for you.....
We bought a Coleman Wyoming tent earlier this year,went on a camping trip to the Welsh coast and got caught up in a force 8 gale.... it was p.... raining very hard and not a drop got through.

I'm well impressed with these tents.

HTH

For any fabric to be considered fully waterproof it must be able to withstand the pressure of a column of water 1000mm high without leaking. This is classed as a hydrostatic head rating of 1000.

During a British three season period, Spring, Summer, Autumn the hydrostatic head of the tent should certainly not be less than 1000mm. Any less and water seeping in during a storm is very likely. Bear in mind also that wind-driven rain requires a higher hydrostatic head.

An hydrostatic head of 2000mm plus is going to take care of most European rain conditions in all seasons. Of course, the type of material fabric and pole structure of the tent are then going to be a further consideration.
