Awilbur, did you get this tent and if so, have a chance to use it yet?

A buddy of mine has it and says it was great after a week in the Front Range in all sorts of weather.

I have an ev2 that i took to Hunter. I like the tent but it really got a lot of condensation on the inside, which turns into horror frost and is a pain. Supposedly they have corrected some of that with the material that is in this direkt. I think it depends mostly on what your plans for the tent are. weekend January jaunts in the wind river, or 3 week assaults on distant peaks.

OK - did you seam seal it before using it or just use it as is? If so, how was it in the rain?
