    They often seem to go for silly money on eBay but you can pick them up on the MLD or backpacks club Facebook groups for around £150. Iirc that's what I sold my brown one for on here for not to long ago.

    I've used mine in winds around 40mph overnight. As long as it's a tight pitch and it's anchored well it's bomb proof. The panels may flap a little bit but allot less then some other tarps and many tents, it inspires confidence.

    As will any silnylon shelter if it gets damp or wet it will sag a little and need re-tensioning, this is something people often overlook or simply don't bother with and can end up with a line coming loose.
