Polar Dome 250D


This tent is designed for use in the world’s most inhospitable regions, and is the tent of choice for the Antarctic divisions of both Australia and New Zealand. The geodesic dome construction affords supreme stability in areas of high wind, while the design gives adequate space for three expedition members. To cope with the extreme UV at the poles, we’ve used a 250 denier flysheet. This tent is the ultimate in durability and strength: it is not a lightweight alpine expedition tent.
