Only caution is that it's still a bit sticky/grippy after drying, so dusting with talcum powder is a good idea.
Somehow while a scout was teaching another scout how throw his knife during free time (No, no one was hurt miraculously) it bounced up off the stump, did a mid-air turn much like a UFO or a certain "magic bullet" and flew towards the tent. Luckily it climbed in altitude and just skimmed over the rain fly. So they fearing the wrath of the leader getting on their case, didn't tell anyone as it just missed the tent.
Well irony is not without a sense of humor it seems. That night while we were all sleeping the heavens opened and it rained. Then it rained harder and harder until morning. It just so happens the two scouts involved in the knife incident were sleeping right underneath the supposed "near miss". They woke up soaked. Through their lack on tying the rain fly out to the trees or stakes, the water would pool and run right into the surgical tear in the tent and rain fly.
Lucky for them that was the only day it rained and they got all their stuff dried out. I was ready to right the tent off as a loss as many tents before it. Then a quick search on google turned up this product and an awesome video. I ordered it right away and two days later, thanks to my Prime account, I was ready to play. I used some packing tape to hold the cut together and slathered this on the other side about an 1/8" thick extending beyond each side of the tear by 1/4". I let it dry for 24 hours. Seemed to work nicely.
Now for the other side. I removed the packing tape and then repeated the process on the tape side and let it dry for 24 hours. I used a little baby/talcum powder to put on the silicone fix to get rid of the tackiness before I folded up the rain fly. 3 weeks later we used the tent on a campout and it rained on us again. But the fix held well. No leaks in the tent this time.
Great product that I'll use a lot now. The SILNET stays flexible and should hold up well to the scouts abuse.
This is an awesome tent, so I didn’t want to replace it just yet.
Using some scrap silnylon, I was able to patch up the tent fly. Should be good as new now. I did a review of this on my blog. Search for silnylon tent repair rei quarter dome 2. You should be able to find it.
I didn't get any rain on my trip (good for the trip, bad for this review). But, I do plan on using this same product on my next tent as it's the best value and gets good reviews.
I will say the silicone stays a bit tacky even after it sets. But if you have a silnylon tent or tarp, this is what you need.
