Hey, just got this tent from backcountry...

Hey, just got this tent from backcountry and was putting it up in the yard. I realised the canopy was all mesh before I bought it, but now I've got it I'm wondering whether that might be an issue in colder weather. I was wondering what sort of temperatures people have been using this tent in, and whether I should get something with a more robust canopy for camping at the beginning or end of winter.

Also, the 'ultra durable' stakes are pretty terrible - I managed to bend one going through soft clay. Looks like I'm buying some after market ones!
