Fall of the House of Big Agnes

I had a BH4 last year for 1 day, it blew down in a 40 mph wind even though 8-point guyed.... never got to sleep in it. Poles broke and tore the fly and body. I did like the design, however so I gave it another chance this year. I Just recieved my Big House 4 from Backcountry via Amazon. The new model does not have a skylight window, the internal compartments are reduced to 6 and cheaper aluminum poles are now the standard instead of the DAC anodized used last year. A little disapointed at the downgrade in features.
