Is all tents waterproof?
Not all tents are waterproof. There are water-resistant tents, water repellent tents, and waterproof tents. Water-resistant tents can only reduce rainfall from entering inside the tent but cannot completely stop it from entering.


Most good quality ones are mate. Make sure you buy a decent one as the cheap versions won't last a night. They will be noisy in wind too!

Hey Scott, what's involved in treating and once you do that, how often does that need to be done? We had been looking at one of those White Duck tents, which is made from canvas.
