My new tent.

I’ve finally taken the plunge and ordered a Scarp1 from Henry Shires. I’ve been looking for a new tent for a number of years, because I ‘ve never felt able to trust my Laser Comp in wet and windy weather. It may be ok, but all that flapping when its windy does not inspire confidence.

So if there is anyone out there who has a Scarp1, which seams do I need to seal? When I’m sealing the flysheet should I seal the inside or the outside?

    You should ideally seal the outside as that’s where the stitching is. Use a template cut from a piece of card to ensure a neat finish. Definitely seal the main seams where the sides join the top. I also sealed around the roof vents. Hope you enjoy the Scarp1, it’s my favourite tent.
