If I buy a field n forest dome tent, do I need to seam seal it?

ALL tents need to be seam sealed periodically. It is a good idea to do it with a new tent, but usually not required the first few times out. I also spray the fly with a new DWR coating as tents get older, and have sometimes re-waterproofed them elsewhere.

What should I look for when I buy a tent?

The first things to consider when you are buying a tent are size and budget. Figure out how much you have to spend and then try and get the best quality tent you can for that amount.

How many people do you need your tent for?

A 2 person tent is actually quite cramped for 2 people and it might be better to invest in a 4 person tent.

Speak to people who have been camping and ask them how comfortable their tents were.

You also need to consider issues such as the material the poles are made from (aluminium is stronger), how big the rainfly is (this is the tent's umbrella) , vents, zippers and guy lines(these keep your tent attached to the ground).

Go to a camping shop and get feedback on all these issues before you rush out and buy.

Can I heat up my tent?

Most of the tents can be heated to create a comfortable environment. Depending on the size of your tent and the outdoor temperature, I can recommend you to purchase an outside heater that will permit use of the tent in most any weather.

Thinking of buying this tent would you recommend it?

I used this tent quite often on my hiking trips, it's not the Rolls Royce of tents, but it's a good value for your money.

Pros -
easy to set up - 10 minutes is vry slow....
Can sleep to easly as long as they are not very tall, below 6'2".
Nice view

Cons -
lack of vestibule
lack of second door really annoying when the inner person wakes up earlier or go to sleep later...
weight, a bit heavy for long and serious hiking.
