Wow. I went to a DZ in the US back in 2003. It was a lovely sunny day when I arrived but I saw the storms beginning to roll in. I was 40 minutes from any city at 4pm on a Saturday, so I got a taxi out so I could buy a tent, quickly. All they had was a rock climbers tent, ultra light and high performance.
Then it rained for four days. The four days I had allocated to jumping. Everything I had was wet, and I was miserable. But the tent worked pretty well, the one on the left.
And here I am at a DZ 11 years later. The tent still works perfectly and so does the global network of friends.
