Westwind is good


The Westwind is only my second choice as it is not freestanding. However it is supposed to be very windresistant.

The Westwind is a true classic. It is a great tent that sheds wind like few others - a quiet haven in a storm, but it has only mediocre ventilation, but it has a nice vestibule which helps vent. Never mind that its not free standing, you have to stake out a storm tent anyway. I have spent many a cozy night in my westwind - its much more quiet in a wind thsn my Bibler!

Up High

I have the Up High but have only used it once. I set it up in the dark as my feet went numb. It is easy and simple to set up, maybe not as quick as they say with one person though. I think for solo it is pretty good but question the lack of a vestibule when going with 2 people. I would like to hear others opinions about how it does in wind/rain. I couldn't pass it up for $225 on sale. I really like the idea.
