The standard Polar Pyramid provides a traditional 'bomb proof' solution to Antarctic expeditions requiring solid dependability. Everything you expect from a traditional pyramid design has been included, as well as a range of additional features to ensure reliability and comfort.
Our eight-ounce canvas is incredibly hard-wearing and tough. It is breathable and has high UV resistance, allowing it to withstand repeated extended periods in the Antarctic sun. Colours are chosen for high visibility and to create a harmonious interior environment. Clear windows let in natural light and provide excellent weather observation ports. Each pole sleeve has four external lash points, allowing antennas and solar panels to be hung outside the tent. Multiple air vents ensure that in even the heaviest snow deposition, occupants can breath easy.
Other features include:
hardened aquaphobic floor material, and snow valances;
strong but light 48 millimetre drawn alloy frames;
eight millimetre guy ropes all round;
tunnel door entry with double closure ties;
guy pockets keep the tent tidy in transit and during pitching;
