We have a smaller version of this and it's fantastic - never had a problem with it.
The quality is great, and we've been in some pretty extreme hail and wind and it's always held up fine.
If you can wait a little while before buying it, Kathmandu ALWAYS have really big discounts over Easter - we bought ours at the sale and saved about 300 bucks - and that was over 5 years ago!
Good luck.
