i have a four season tent and im curious as to if the rain fly is a MUST for winter? it would still hold up great due to 4 season design. ive got a good enough sleeping bag to negate any heat reduction. will snow somehow melt through? (the rain fly is a pain to stake out in snow and i would like to get rid of more wieght.) id be losing my vestibules but it would pitch in about 2 min instead of 10. im just not sure about the inside tent material being strong enough.
Yep, still necessary. the tent body material isn't waterproof and can get damp and freeze(combo of body heat and snow). Also it's not very windproof, while the fly is. Basically the tent fly is the waterproof, windproof, and strong outter shell.
Me fail English? That's unpossible. http://www.ericjlee.com/Blogs
