    I have a MYOG mid with RSBTR silnylon (0.93 oz/yd2).

    Wind was 30 MPH according to my Brunton ADC Wind

    Corner tie-out ripped off:

    The flat felled seam ripped across it.

    The panel on one side was on the grain, so there were three layers of fabric on the flat felled seam – I folded the fabric over twice to make the flat felled seeam.  The fabric on the other side was on the bias, so it stretched where the fabric on the grain stretched until it ripped, so I think the on the bias fabric contributed less.  There were three layers of it also.

    Looking at other corners, I can see the majority of tension is along the flat felled seam on the ridge, and little tension on the edges or across the fabric.

    When I fix it I’ll put more layers of fabric going up the flat felled seam.  Maybe I’ll use gros grain – that seems not to stretch very much and must be strong enough.

    I don’t think making a circular reinforcement  across the body of the fabric will do much, as is typically done to reinforce tie-outs.
