No faults, obviously not the same build quality or as strong as our two tents that cost nearly 10x more but fine enough for what we do - we don't cycle camp out of season, we use the safir with the edfell stove or another dutch tent.
Sorry I don't use smilies often. It was meant as a jokey comment about use of different tents in strong winds not a competition. TBH tents can survive a lot with a good pitch. In all cases my shelters survived strong wind I've made sure I got the most sheltered spot in the hills or campsite that I could.
One case I watched the "all seasons" hilleberg atko get a real battering while my tarp just shrugged off the wind. I was next to the wall which the wind was blowing parallel to but the wind speed and strength wasn't as high as 3 metres away from me.
You say the quality isn't as good as your safir, in what way? Is the stitching ok for example or a bit messy / flawed in some way? Would you say it'll make a decent family, cycle camping tent? Used for the summer only.
