It says the tent is "Seam Sealed" on this site. Is it really? Why is everyone says they spent hours/days seam sealing it?

It's seam sealed after you seal it. Black Diamond sells their tents with a tube of sealant that YOU get to go over the stitching inside and out with. It's not super bad, just a bit tedious and time consuming. Set it up and seal it, it'll probably take a couple hours if you're good. If you're not, you will be by the time you're done. There was a noticeable difference between the seams where I started and the seams where I finished when I sealed my first BD tent.
