Circus Tent

This is really spacious but I feel like it might be tight for 4 people. It did a good job when dumped on with snow, but it made the walls cave in a bit and really reduced the amount of room inside. The reason it gets a 4 is because you have to seam seal it, I just think thats lame these days.

Can't really blame the manufacturer here. No silnylon gear is seam-taped (to my knowledge). Traditional seam tapes just won't stick. You've got to use the goo. That's the price you pay for the silnylon weight savings.

Why can't you blame the manufacturer. They can just do what they are asking you to do before they sell it, no?

Yes they can seam seal it, but then that will also just up the cost of the item because it will take them more time and money to seam seal the tarp from the factory. It is really not that hard or time consuming to do it yourself anyway. I vote yes on saving money where there is something that I can easily do myself.
