I am doing a pre-review. I have not officially used the tent (it's still nearly 80 outside). I set it up to see it. It is certaily the most sturdy and tightly fitting tent that I have ever set up, and much tigher than the other tents I have owned. I do like the gear nets hanging from the top, and sides. One downside would be the second door. I feel like it is unnecessary, adding weight; the extra pole, and rainfly and zippers that accomodate it. I did like that the zippers go 360 around the door, so you can zip open any way you please. I think I will modify the zipper ends, so I can fully zip off the doors.
My first impression is that I would definitely trust it to withstand heavy winds, rain, hail, snow, no problem. This tent is sturdy, but by no means lightweight. Although I do not have a precise scale, I am assuming the weight includes the guy cords that were included to further secure it.
