design flaw

This tent is light and nothing more. The biggest issue is the poor wind resistance from both sides because the roof pole is very weak in that direction in strong wind. Used it on a 900 meter mountain with strong wind, I couldn't fall asleep during the night, the 'roof' pole was twisted so much by wind from one side that I almost think it will break. I ended up sitting in the tent using my back to hold the tent for whole night. It has good wind resistance from tail though. But wind does change direction from time to time. Other than that, it's not easy to set up. The inner and outer must be linked by 4 clips on both sides and it's hard to operate in blowing wind and low temp. I know it's a 3 season tent but I think it's better used in very low altitude with no or very little wind or you are sure the wind won't change direction so you can put the tail toward the wind. Consider Terra nova laser competition with similar weight but much sturdier construction.
