Hello experts!

Would love some advice on the subject from the area overnight soaking wet (rain, dew, zrsoff).

I have the Tarptent Contrail of tent, I know that lachlkkm experience and familiarity with the model (and materials). And miles make filled (or subject).

So far, the tent used only in Israel, and got to pick him up in the rain (not even dripping). I plan to try it another two months in potentially wet environment (South Sichuan, so I won't close until some) I'm a little afraid of konterle combintzia thin and fragile sack (Ajungilak's Sphere), which may have harvsh the whole Trek.

What do you think I should add to my tent + km (and of course a)? Does the konterle weak little rain, and should add another layer/manifold (top or bottom)? What you add (or not) If you leave one with the equipment.

Would love some advice (if not off atopic).

Thank you friends,

This video is pretty impressive. One of the hisronot of SIL-nylon, that he may loosen a bit when they absorb and might have to go to stretch my tent in the middle of the night.

Besides, if the seams sealed properly, it seems to be fine (you didn't specify but high winds rain).

BTW, your blog great! Fun to read and hatkna.

I have a rainbow and the only downside I can think of besides thickening (it's a problem of unidirectional bteim tents) is exceptional among other to the floor has made from wind could come in if the tent is not behind any barrier (downwind).

I don't know how konterle is made but if it also has a network connection parts and the floor, you may want to think about something. I was looking for an area with shelter from the wind, and condensation, an internal network can help (the Rainbow has an inner curtain preparation).

Regarding resistance to rain and I slept in ngtang Valley of Nepal at a place called the karch with gshisha the tent and it was raining all night and stay dry inside tent. Yair right to stretch tight the tent with pegs to reduce chance to thicken and of course if you can put it next to an hour or two in the Sun, it's not bad either.

Hi Nimrod, I'm an avid reader of either blog! Keep it up;)

Some experience with CLOUDBURST in New Zealand, we've been quite rainy nights and very rainy, not even entered the water at all. The country has been sealed it with silicone around the seams. (Instructions on how to do this on their website).

Yes, some where, when bedtime pushed up the curtain walls and the bag gets wet a little, not fun, but not bad. And when there is condensation (this happens when there is sufficient ventilation/wind) drops that hit the roof resulted in a hatabo drops on the ceiling to Len occasionally, again, not too bad.

Keep traveling! LiorEl 40633.4315509259

The principle is to keep sheets of rain so the rain won't penetrate the sides and wraps on the curtain aside. It all depends how you stick your stakes, high curtain with remote control and ventilation. He made two loops on each other, one close to the manifold and the other far distant trumpeting that it skoolle.

Haverim! Thanks a bunch for the replies and the kind words!

You would not believe this, but I'm replying from Chomrong, at 2200m, a day and a half from the Annapurna Sancturay:), so internet is too quit expensive for me to really get into the posts or reply-just wanted to say thanks:)

Will go through and reply when back

Some Trek you plan in South Sichuan? Anyway not a bad shot you won't use normally-tent villages, shepherds huts etc.

Hello everyone, and thanks again. Get the tips and hope for better:)

Zvi, my dream is to do Molly-Lake-iading-logo. Once you reach a critical mass of information (= ...), decide if I go for all or only some (read your excellent article:) and functional). There are a few routes I ran them on chinnatrekking.com that interest me (like a Gunga tgong area), but it's all the information I could find (and I don't expect to find much:).)

A great idea for a long trek. The part I know (iading logo) is the best.

About maps-there is nothing to talk about topographic maps (although I met once in ionanan American photographer who managed to scrounge a few of those American army ...), the best you can hope for is a road maps with the names of the localities, sometimes small (in Chinese, but you ask someone to translate into English). Actually about gonanga mountain has a good map with the ridges and the like going online. But the weather is bad there.

I didn't go out for that (and) all alone, and I think it's better to hire a local guide, which solve the problem of map, and allow a little more familiarity with the local culture.

You may have to start logo, which is the highest price compared on the Trek (and quite a few hours — a League), there are quite a few English speakers to help you get organized.

This site has a repository of Russian topographic maps of the entire world, mostly old but little is better than nothing.
Just click on the area that interests you on the map displayed and it will give you the list of map has.

In China the most detailed maps I've seen are 1:200

Thanks for the tips, Zvika. I found a relatively detailed pdf on-iading-logo link, but that's not enough.

Anyway, I'm going to turn on the radar when I get to the League.

Me, I completely forgot about this site (I took him maps of Mongolia), thanks!

Don't know if it's still relevant, but as one who went with the konterle in New Zealand and in the Himalayas under the weather pretty hard, I can tell you he will do the job well. The silaniilon generally requires stretching every few hours in the rain. If murderous rain then. If you notice you have a few options on the konterle. You have the Beek on the back that I'd definitely use it which is supposed to be raining. It was a hell of a job. In General, if there is rain then search anywhere except with Cumulus and establish the tent over it so it just keeps raining down and accumulate.
Total of the tent.

Note on silnilon
On a trip to mount karkom had drizzle the other night with strong wind and the third night the weather was rather more comfortable.
The other night I spent in planting the pegs and tent was intense.
As a result there was no condensation.
On the third night some ragging, and the tent was not nervous that the standard and had a little condensation (although rain inside. "it's amazing how this powerful and efficient areinbo and amazing good the chta stretch helps protect single wall tents with the obnoxious thicken.

Encouraged, I have 2 klaodverst, and I must say that I'm not sure it's what he doing precisely that helps prevent condensation, I think that the level of moisture in the air and wind and ventilation created tent that determines how thicken.

Anyway good to stretch properly.

Agree-I always stretch on and it didn't help me today, ventilation always helps too, was half the professional explanation about condensation point, moisture in the air in what message a few weeks ago look under condensation.
