Hi. The Salewa tent was good. I am sorry I had to put it in the tent retirement home under the house in the cellar . The storm on the Main range in Feb. 2018 damaged it badly . It became a pain to use electrical tape and a repair sleeve just to erect it for simple car camping.
However the new Mont Moondance 2 tent is the best tent I have owned.
It is not cheap but it is a case of you get what you pay for. The matching footprint / ground sheet that comes separately is well worth the investment too.

I will be using this gear for snow camping and XC ski touring this next white season in 2022 . I will see how it handles strong winds and heavy snow falls.
It is much lighter than my W. E. three pole dome Snow tent / 4 seasons tent.
In terms of erecting a tent esp. when you are a spent force from walking/ XC skiing/ surfing all day this MONT tent is so simple and straight forward to set up.
