Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

A disappointed purchase!!I was quite excited when I got this tent and really wish I could keep it as the weight was so low. I figured I should do a car camping to test out this tent before I use it in backcountry. On 9/23/2016, I used this tent in Silver Bell campsite at Maroon Bells, CO. The temperature was 55 high and 33 low, light rain from time to time.
The tent is not easy to get tout. The rain fly was pretty close to ground and some what increase the condensation. In the morning, the whole rain fly had very strong condensation. The tent is very small. My wife is 5'6" and I am 5'10". Everytime we sit up, enter or exit the tent we will touch the net and rain fly, which made the tent like rain inside!! Especially the ceiling is so low!
The door closure was another failure design. As many people complained, it has no zipper. It was almost impossible to close it, or even tie it on the stake. Again, remember the condensation on the rain fly door? When you try to open or close it, all the water go on your cloth! While you struggle, the water on ceilling will also drop inside the tent. It was a miserable experience. It is no way I can use this tent in backcountry!
