Sounds like you are cursed and that nature doesn't want you to go camping much



Another way to go is hybrid, there are many different concepts...

Easton SI2 is an ultralight hybrid tent.

SI2 is a four season two person single layer self standing tent, two and a half poles, two large doors on the long sides, and two detachable vestibules (bring them along or leave them at home). It has a tub construction with robust water proof fabric. The poles are set up in external with c-clips rather than pockets. The poles are made out of a robust and light carbon composite - from which they have replaced the traditional internal shock cord with the much lighter and smarter air lock system.The shell is both breathable and water proof (not simply water resistant). It weighs in at 1900g/4pounds. It is 221 cms long, which means that having ones head or feet pressed against a moist canvas won't be much of a problem for most people. It has numerous securing points to deal with harsg conditions. An added foot print is an option. It used to be priced at 400$, so about ten times as much as my current favorite...

I can't tell from the pictures and the info I've read if it came with internal mesh doors - but I would be surprised if it didn't have this feature as it seems they have thought about just about everything.

Only problem is that they no longer make it... which makes me wonder if it was too good to be true. Maybe someone still has it in stock?

This is the tent you describe as blowing away all over the place in a bit of wind:

I believe you are referring to the Horizon Unlimited Meeting in Ripley 2011.
I was there.
I remember this tent blowing away.
I also believe it was put up either by a pretty drunk and careless guy or by an amateur.
I was actually lying in exatly the same kind of tent the exact same place at the exact same event and it was a very wet and windy weekend.
Even so, I had no issues with instability, wet "living room" or "kite-effect" when packing down.

But each to his own.
