French F1 Military Surplus pup tent



hello YouTube this is a review of the French f1 military pop-top this particular one I guess it's called the new style because it doesn't have a separate rain fly it's all one piece I'm thinking we're gonna have some rain here in a minute so this may actually turn into a rain review so what is there to say about the time well it sets up fairly easily the tent stakes are very beefy and pretty heavy so if you're gonna use this tent you actually might want to trade those out for some lightweight tent stakes although these are are definitely solid solid solid tent stakes for a flip-top it's not going anywhere if you stake it down real good let's see you can see on the inside it's got air vents that you can close up there velcro the other side it's closed that sides open one Center pole or not I'm sorry two poles one on each end aluminum pretty solid little base down there I'm getting damaged and there's a spot up there a little extra fabric to keep it from poking through the top of your tent this particular one looks like it was made 1993 so the question is is the waterproofing still good and that's actually why I had the time set up today is to try and find out if it is or not if not I'll need to get some seam seal I've seen a couple different reviews on YouTube some say they're not waterproof some say they are waterproof I suspect it's just a matter of how well the original waterproofing has held up over all these years the people that did say they were trouble said it was mainly right along this seam right here on the top after a long rain so I could definitely see that it's actually like maybe a canvas fabric I'm not really sure what the actual time is made out of the front and back zip up doors on each end there is no mosquito netting so that's one drawback of this particular attempt although there's some ventilation up here yeah but if you're gonna leave your doors open you're gonna get bugs in there without a doubt all right well let's see if the ring comes and if so of them will pop back and do a rain review
