I use a GoLite Lair 2 tarp. I've used it in moderate wind with rain and did fine. Just don't want to pitch the openning into the weather, otherwise I can't see it as an issue. It is nice not to be concerned about the mud on your boots, or dog hair, etc.
Since the Lair 2 is essentially a tarp staked to the ground, I would imagine that it would be very noisy in heavy wind. But I don't think it would come apart as the Sil-nylon seems stronger that PU-coated nylon. But I've never used it in heavy winds to find out.
