Because I only have the sleeping area with a sig, I can see your point, although it is swings and roundabouts. With a sig you have the choice on what to do. A simple way to help with such conditions is to use eyelets stamped into the base of the sig at strategic points. This allows you to get rid of all those nasty spills whilst maintaining, to a large extent, the reason for a sig. :)

Don't forget to leave a review of all tents you've used, for a chance to win fantastic prizes

New! Please upload a photo of your tent to the Tent Showcase!

So long as you get to it before it's travelled around the tent and under things making it hard to get a sponge to it - I had to empty the porch of stuff sometimes to get to it all. There's much better things to be doing at festivals :)

Much prefer the open feeling of a porch with no GS at all tbh and no puddling issues (and no valance to step over).

I tend to picture something without explaining fully :)
You put eyelets in at strategic points, and then insert a ground anchor at each of those points, usually along an edge. Because the fabric is pulled down at those points, fluids naturally travel down towards the eyelet. Where you put those eyelets is down to you, so a bit of forethought is needed. However for a concert, cheap and cheerful is apt and if it has a sig, cut it out entirely, or just cut down one side. :)

Sorry, you can NOT post a reply.
