Overall: I had this tent out in winds exceeding 100mph (measured reading of 99.6mph and then winds only increased off scale of vanometer) and this tent stood fast, this was using only the supplied guy lines but with additional pegs, doubled up and with rocks on for security. SUre it buckled in the gusts but it stayed up. A Haglofs genious 12 failed in these winds, a Crux Bomb had severely damaged poles, and a Haglofs Genious 20 had severly damaged poles. The jannu poles are only slightly disfigured and do not affect the shape of the tent at all how they are now.
Ive also managed ot put the tent up in winds of over 60mph, and take it down that night in winds of over 100mph. THe guys can be put on as it goes up so it is always guyed high up, and the poles are external so you can peg it all out as you erect it. You have to see it to beleive it really, it couldent be any easyer to put up in crazy winds.
THis tent really is the muts nuts, you wont get stronger for the weight no-way! You could get cheaper though.... but then you really do get what you pay for here.
