Thank you guys (and gals),
It is calculated area, and yes I just round off to the closest sq ft. I go by their numbers to start with, checking it once I get a sample. If their numbers are wrong it gets changed and recalc’ed, which then changes all the weight/area ratios. It can be a pain. Thank goodness we don’t track volume…
I only had the tent in late fall and winter so no data for hot, humid areas, Robert. We are limited to the time we have to use an item unless we drag out the review. As we are looking at a very large amount of tents in a relatively short time (8 months) we have to work with the window we have.
That said I would “guess” that it would do well. If it were not raining I would set it up in those conditions sans fly. If raining I have to say that the ventilation scheme is as good as I have seen, but I really don’t know how it will work for you.
