We camp in windy places, how well does this product hold up in the wind?

Best Answer Responded on

One issue this design has is high-profile walls that will fight the wind. It has a good pole-design to create solid stability, but in high winds it will at least get loud and shake. The fly design aids this substantially, particularly if you pitch it facing or tailing the wind. My experience with Marmot is that, regardless of the shaking and noise, it will not fold in normal winds.

If you are looking for a tent that you will pitch in consistently high winds, I would recommend something with lower profile walls and better curves, but that will sacrifice interior space and comfort.
