the material is much heavier (more like canvas) and the zippers are heavier too (wouldn't necessarily say better... just heavier)

zippers are important. I kinda worry about that, not that mine has given me reason for concern. Only that zippers are usually what give up first.

i agree zippers always go first. the CVT zippers are smaller with more teeth whereas the Howling Moon zippers are slightly larger with less teeth

in my book it's kind of a toss up really. i doubt i'll have any issues with the zippers for a long time so i'm not too worried

I'd rather have ours then bigger ones. They actually tend to break easy.

Long as your nice to them. I expect a long time out of them.

when i bought the tent i pretty much decided 30 sounded like a nice round number and i was determined to get some good use out of it.
