Got an answer to the following Walking/Hiking question?
I have a wonderful single-person green (light buff-yellow inner) Ultimate tent (has inverted 'V' poles at front and single vertical pole at back, flysheet and inner (with built in but very thin groundsheet). Having not used it for years it's been brought out of hiding and indeed put through some paces in wild iceland! It has revealed the need for a little reproofing but was generally beautifully behaved. I had reproofed it decades ago with.. I think.. fabsil proofer but it may have been with technics proofer for 'pu-nylon'. It was also subject to intense sunlight in Greece those long days ago and is somewhat faded.
*It's quite hard to pitch it so that the inner does not touch the outer at the top 1/3rd of its length.. I'd be interested in any tips on this.
It became a bit 'crinkly - sounding' after that proofing and I think was not used since: and retains creases a bit more but otherwise as mentioned, it's shown itself to be in pretty good nick on its recent adventure.
*The question is: does anyone know what it's made of and whether the Grangers Fabsil (says for cotton, nylon, terylene and leather) which I have a large part-used can of) would be likely to be ok on the tent for reproofing? Sadly I never kept a note of what I used the first time...
