I have an old (15+ years) REI Clipper tent. I set it up in the rain the other day to test it out and I had leaks in the rain fly. Does anyone have solutions for this? I was thinking of scotchguarding inside and out. Thoughts? Yes, I know it is an old setup. Yes, I know I could replace it, I already have. I just want to know if I could do anything to re-waterproof the rain fly.
I’ve been using a can of some sort of silicone spray from walmart on my old tent flys, so far so good
Hi @Dirk - Excited to hear you’ve had your REI tent for so long! Like @Philreedshikes said, there are lots of products out there that will help refresh your rainfly’s waterproofing. Scotchgard even has tent specific products, so that’s a great plan. If the seams are also leaking, REI offers some seam sealers that should do the trick. You can also take a look at an Expert Advice article on How to Waterproof a Tent for some more details. Hopefully this helps! Would love to hear what process ends up working for you.
