Macpac tent floor question
Apr 29th, 2018 at 2:19pm

Recently brought a minaret tent and put it up on the wet lawn to test it out in the rain. The question I have is "does the floor change colour if it sits on top of water"? It still seems relatively dry inside when rubbing hand over floor but feels very cold and dampish. What does everyone elses tents do in the rain. I have contacted Macpac and sent them photos today for their tech team to investigate.

No mine doesn't change colour. It's greyish. Will be cold and feel damp and I'm guessing that's a temp differential. If no waters coming you should be right.

Macpac have asked for it back so they can do some checks on it. The floor is normal grey in some places but about twice as dark in others when wet underneath. Will follow up with outcome when checks are done. Couple of pics.

Bought a replacement Olympus last year at their sale and it's not like that at all.

Finally got answer back from Macpac. They said they had checked it over and the colour change was just 'shadowing'. The manager I was dealing with decided that a replacement was justified and swapped the tent for an entire new one.
Took a few weeks to be sorted but I am happy with the outcome.

Have to clarify that it was only the manager I dealt with that decided to replace it. The tent was returned from the tech team saying there was no problem with it. Glad I got a new one though.
