The NTK Arizona GT 9 is a very great tent for resisting high winds by implementing a dome design that moves the winds over the tent.

 

 

 

 

Several reviews of this tent attested that this big tent can withstand high winds up to 30-40mph. Despite its size this tent actually resists wind very well due to its design. This tent has many other interesting features besides its wind resistant abilities.

 

 

 

 

 

The rainfly is also sealed up excellently to increase this tents wind resistance capabilities.

This tent has a large vestibule, two rooms and doors, color coded poles making tent construction easy. The room and the tent floor measurements give you some nice space.

 

 

 

 

 

Floor Width‎245 Centimeters
Floor Length‎208.7 Inches

 

 

 

 

There is one annoying aspect to this tent though. The windows only close from the outside which means you will have to get up and close them if the winds start to really pick up.

 

 

 

 

 

Although this tent does come with color coded tent poles allowing for an easy to understand set up.

Also considering the size of this tent it should be staked down to prevent the wind from lifting it up even though the tent is a freestanding tent. Using stakes as a backup is always a good idea making your tent extra secure.

 

 

 

 

 

ProsCons
Dome resistant wind designNeeds to be staked
Plenty of spaceWindows only close from the outside
Excellent sealing 

Best for: Camping with the family during windy conditions
