Key features:

4 season

Handles wind well

 

 

This tent is a great bang for your buck since it’s it offers 4 season protection, and its not too difficult to take up and down. The fiberglass poles simply need to be put into their color coded sleeves.

 

 

 

 

 

This tent also performs great against windy conditions since it made with heavy duty material, but the downside is this tent weighs a lot due to the material.

 

 

 

 

 

This is a bad deal for people looking to backpack. Also the tent stakes are rather cheap wire stakes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ProsCons
AffordableHeavy tent not for backpacking
Color coded setupSmall – Realistically holds 2 people
Great against windMight need better tent stakes

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best for: Two people going to a campsite while expecting some possible rain wind or snow.

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.

 

 

 

 

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

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
