Handled the Gobi well...
Bought this tent for work in south-central Mongolia, in the Gobi-Altai. Used it for about 2.5 months straight, often moving camps on a semi-weekly basis. I am very impressed with this tent. Its been through some wind/sandstorms that had me waking up in the middle of the night seriously questioning if this tent would blow away, it did not. We watched others in our group chase their tents on occasion when high wind was able to unroot them....this tent held strong though. Wind, rain, heat, cold, snow....it works well for everything. Very spacious too. I hope to keep this one for a long time.
