Many had tent damage from the sand blowing into their zippers. They would have zipper races, people really like opening and closing things, and that would destroy zippers which are hard and therefore expensive to replace.
I can't give you a tent that will close up everything
without suffocating those inside.
But I can recommend this for those that live in dusty windy places.
From Sierra Trading Post cheap, depending on what sale they have on today.
Clean your zipper with a wet wash cloth.
Spray with silicone or if desperate run some wax along it.
