Question: Looking at the picture of the Kelty Horizon 2 with the rainfly over the tent poles, a small gap appears at the front of the tent that may let in water under stormy conditions. Will this tent design keep the occupants dry under wet condtions?

Asked by: JohnD
​The gap provides excellent ventilation to reduce the chance of condensation inside the tent. It comes below the mesh on the body to provide full waterproof protection. Like many waterproof tents there is a possibility that in extremely bad weather water could splash or be blown upwards and find it's way between the fly and the body.
