Mountain tents in the wind

A Scott Tent in 100mph wind

We have a few choices in tents when we head out to the field - Scott Tents are the big yellow ones, and seem to do well up to about 120mph of wind - we use these more and more. Mountain tents are the more typical 4-season backpacking tents that you might find at your local outdoor store. These don't seem to handle more than 80mph before they're starting to collapse, and 100mph is definitely not good...
