Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've now spent well over 50 days of my life living in out and or around the Stronghold Tent. This thing is the best home away from home if you're looking for a base camp that will handle ANYTHING that gets thrown at it!
It's kinda complex to set up so make sure you have the instructions and a good crew to follow them. Once it's up you can climb on the thing it's so tight and sturdy.
The internal skirt/flap acts as all the anchor you need. Just line the inside edge with all your gear. Then shovel a bit of snow around the outside to seal it from wind and snow.
I've slept 4 with all our gear and a dug out cook area and it was perfect. It once snowed 8ft of really heavy snow in as many days in Haines. We hardly had to dig the thing out while our 2 and 3 person tents were collapsing and required hourly digging.
It's a beast to travel with and pay for extra baggage fees, but well worth the cost once it's up and running. I've never tried it, but I think you could get away without some of the poles if you wanted to save weight, and still have a great shelter.
Can't say enough good things about this product.
