What do you think the performance differance would be between silnylon and reg nylon treated w/ Silicone?

Thinking about sewing up my own and want to know if it really makes any differance.
They want a lot of $$'s for the true silnylon tipi tents and yet I know Cabela's uses regular nylon to make some of thier "lodges" out of and people seem happy with those.
So does it really matter?

Impregnating nylon with silicone greatly increases it's tear strength. It could make the difference in a high wind storm between a shredded tipi or a just noisy night.
