Are you animeposting from a tent in the middle of a forest?
>>
>>1391049
Nothing wrong with that, anon
>>
>>1391041
True, with wind in the trees even better.

The shit part is packing up the tent when it's wet and cold. My fingers get shredded and numb. Plus after a day of hiking you open it up for the next night and it's all still wet.

Alas, not much to get around it.

Nothing worse than that. You start soaking eventually from every feasible direction and there is nothing to do but sit and wait for few hours or days.
>>

>soaking eventually

My $20 Walmart ozarktrails tent has been able to stay completely dry on the inside during storms.

>nothing to do
Listen to the rain you nerd
>>
>>1391157
I'm not sure we define the same thing as "rainstorm".
And rather than listening to rain, you could just go to sleep. Which, considering I came out to fucking HIKE rather than hide from a rainstorm, means it's time wasted on sitting on my ass or sleeping.

It shouldn't take longer than 30 mins to set up a tent like that. It is quite obvious that you have no clue what you are talking about. You are trolling and most likely don't go out and do anything outside not involving a fast food joint.

I have an Ozark Trail 3 person that withsood 24 hours of continuous medium rain pretty well. Corners started to get damp eventually. I have a large chill gorilla rain fly that I put up now. The tent doesn't get a drop of water on it and I have over hang to store gear that won't get wet.

What the fuck are you talking about? Buy some decent jeans that fit you and not the skinny jeans you wear at the gay bar and maybe you'll have better luck.

This is 50% of why I camp. The other 50% is how amazing basically anything cooked over a fire in the open air tastes when you're exhausted from hiking.
>>
>>1392042
Nigger what? I practically live /out/ and I wear jeans all the time. The only jeans that fit that description are faggot hipster skinny jeans. Go to Bass Pro shop and buy a pair of "redhead jean company" jeans. They'll change your fucking life. I've been spending, on average, 100+ hours per week innawoods over the last decade between work (cutting down trees, climbing trees, cutting up trees I've dropped, splitting the wood, then grinding, pulling, or burning out the stump) and camping, hiking and walking my dogs in the several acres of woods behind my home that are part of a state park, and I've worn jeans every single day. They're excellent for being /out/, and if you disagree then you've clearly never bought a decent pair that fit you right. Actually measure your waist and inseam and buy a pair in the proper size, bootcut, relaxed fit.

Amazon Prime has 8 hour long rain storms you can listen to to knock you out. It never worked for me though, I keep anticipating the thunder sound and can't sleep.
>>
>>1392287
Well, the alternative to sitting in the tent is to soak cold water in cold air for entire day long, while walking. Definitely not one of the pleasant things to do. But hey, better call me gay to feel more manly, because you walk in the rain just to feel better in your sad, empty, pathetic life. I bet you also post NPC memes

If it rains at night then it's tolerable but it's shit during the day.
The only good precipitation for hiking is snow.

>>1392606
>t. people who never really hiked trying to fit in
As far as my region is concerned, any rain lasting more than 2 hours is going to turn entire area into a mud pan. Which is the least pleasant thing to walk in, because everything is brown-beige, sticky and you are simply soaked wet. May may, what a pleasure...

Yes. My 2nd camping experience this year was in heavy rain for a night, which was very comfy. Our Field and Stream tent did very well considering it was a massive downpour. I did get several drops of water in the tent, but 10/10 comfy

I must have a very simmilar tent to you, same brand, same occupancy.
I fuckin' love it. Lost the rainfly a long time ago though, so I use a tarp as one and I've always stayed 100% dry in it.

There was a side pouch that used to let water in, but seam sealer fixed that. Now everything stays completely dry even with days on end of rain.
>>
I live in a tent, and the shittiest aspect is when it rains a lot, the humidity soaks into *everything*. You eventually have to use up most of a dry hot day to lay it all out in the sun, turning each piece and ensuring the banishment of all moisture or your shit gets mildewed.

Have you ever been sipping hot chocolate while reading a good book in lamp light while snuggling in your tent during a heavy but not windy snow storm? You can hear the big clumps of snow flake hit the tent. It is even better when you are in a canvas tent and have a small, camp, wood stove roaring with some chestnuts roasting on the top.

There's a big pipe that goes underneath a reservoir I hang out in sometimes. It's pitch black and there's a really high pressure outlet pipe that's broken so there's extreme rushing water and drips from all that water above you. Now that is peak comfy. Took a weekend off once and just lived in there with oat cakes and tinned fish.

I agree. However it depends on the rain. There was once I was fucking dying in my goretex so I just took it off and got wet.
I guess the only important thing is to not get your gear wet, honestly idgaf if I'm wet but if my sleeping bag gets wet that's fucking it bitch ass clouds
