This tent rocks. It kept us alive in three days of rain followed by five feet of snow and sub zero temps with crazy winds on the Juneau Icefield. Easy to set up.

You've never felt base-camp comfort like you can get with the Mountain Hardwear Satellite Tent. This massive dome tent provides enough space for four blissfully tired and seriously stinky climbers to sleep without even bumping into each other. Since this dome provides nearly five and a half feet of head room, it also makes a great group tent for meals and marathon storm-bound card games. Or, you could take this massive, burly tent family camping and make everyone else in the place feel inadequate.
