Will it hold up in windy conditions?
Mark has this to say in the comments section of the second instalment of his Cinch! video review, responding to someone’s question about wind:
I have not had it in anything beyond light breezes but we’ve had no issues at all. I haven’t used any of the tie downs on the tent itself yet. Someone commented on one of my videos that used it in very windy conditions in Britain and with proper tie downs it performed great. Other things I read before purchasing was that if the wind did blow it in, the spring of the shock-cords always popped it back out.
How many guy lines does it come with?
According to the Cinch! website’s FAQ section, the Cinch! comes with 20 guy lines.
If it’s not too windy you won’t require the guy lines to keep the tent up. Just use the tent pegs.
