Polar Dome 30D Survival Tent


We’ve combined the bombproof design of a Polar Dome with a lighter flysheet material to produce a smaller, lighter tent suitable for emergency use in the world’s most inhospitable regions. This is (still) not a lightweight alpine expedition tent, but rather an emergency shelter for polar aviators, sailors and expedition members. As the emergency tent of choice for Australian Antarctic Division aviators, the Polar Dome 30D can be found stowed in helicopters and fixed-wing craft across the continent. We hope they never get to appreciate its robust construction, supreme stability in high winds or roomy design, which gives adequate space for three expedition members.
