I attend multiple weekly farmers' markets May through October. We need strong tents to weather any rain squall, wind gusts, or crazy kids. So we spent time researching what tent to purchase and came across this product and ordered it due to its decent reviews.
Everything was going swimmingly until our wind storm in PA last week. Out tent is mangled. The legs are completely bent despite us placing 35 lbs on each leg to prevent any lift during breezy or stormy days.
So despite careful handling on our part and properly securing the tent through weights, the tent didn't withstand the elements. I was disappointed because the reviews suggested that its frame was heavyweight enough to last storms, however the mangled legs prove that to not be true in my case.
I need to buy another tent immediately, but I hesitate because I question what materials will honestly last in strong weather. Market rules are rain or shine, and while we aren't setting up in hurricanes and tornadoes, we do need products that won't buckle at the first storm.
So I wouldn't recommend this to any vendor like myself or anyone who plans to use this in any weather but clear and sunny.
