Another folding / rolling option ?
For nylon Eureka's or tents of that style, I drop the tent
exterior unto the Floor of the tent, random style.
Then I fold the floor panels inword until I reach a seam.
My theory is that seam sealer can be used to reseal the seams!
Once I have a semi-folded mass, I then ROLL it up to force
out the remaining air. Most every time it ends up in a package
that will slid right in the stuff sack.
My theory it that you wind up with fewer folds and creases than
stuffing, of complete folding. My current nylon tent is OVER
ten years old. 1 Repair to the floor from a rock not found
in a set up in the dark. Floor seams have been re-sealed
maybe twice. I just used in on WET ground last week, and
remained dry, and woke up with frost on the outside of the fly!

OOOPS getting off the topic. . . .
Yes I got my BEADS! Now I used to be a BEADED OWL ?
