Our first weekend out with this tent put it through a tough test. First, there was a 10 mph wind at the campsite during setup. Then came the thunderstorms. The next morning started out beautifully clear- with a 20 mph wind. Tent went up quickly despite the wind. I would have preferred a couple more tie-down tabs on the ends below the windows, though. If you're caught in a high wind thunderstorm, move your stuff to the center of the tent. We had small leaks in the windward end corners where water dripped off the rain fly onto the tent body. Can't complain to loudly though, since these were pretty extreme conditions. The tent came through the higher winds the next day very well. There were a couple gusts where I fully expected it to be in a tree somewhere, but it held on. High wind takedown was a chore, but that's not the tent's fault. We just wadded it up and tossed it in the trunk. When we left the campground, there was a mound of broken gear in the dumpster. I was quite happy none of it was mine! Post trip cleanout at home didn't reveal any issues. Thankfully they sized the packing duffel a little large since tents never seem to fold up as tightly as they do when new. Aside from the missing tie-downs and the slight high-wind leak, I was very pleased.
