DWR tech

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.

Also, is this a truly freestanding tent, or does it need to be staked on one end like the freelite 2 model?

Asked by: Stakesizhigh
Hey there, Thanks for your interest in Moosejaw. This is a semi-freestanding tent, so it will need to be staked when set up, similar to the Freelite 2. Sorry about any confusion.

Is the tent being offered at this price an up-to-date model?
