The North Face Dome 8

This eight-man, four-season quick-pitching abode is made for Alaskan backcountry adventure, a summit assault in the Himalayas, or wherever you need proven shelter from nature’s most brutal conditions. The DAC pole system incorporates a ring-shaped aluminum hub to cut down on the number of poles deployed and reduced weight, yet it doesn’t skimp on stability. The durable 70-denier nylon ripstop canopy and floor, which has a 10,000 mm polyurethane coating, provides a solid barrier to the elements. A 75-denier polyester ripstop fly with 1,500 mm polyurethane coating blocks unwelcome moisture and snow. Three double doors for entry and egress with expedition-sized backpacks. Lift vent technology strategically channels the wind to prevent knocking and movement. A snow skirt around the base helps prevent flurries from blowing in. A removable vestibule can be set up on the sun-facing side using the easy-clip system. The polyurethane port window is cold-tested to -60°F for outside monitoring without going out into the frigid extremes. There are also several easy-to-reach internal pockets on the tent’s wall for stowing essentials.

  • Fly pitch with removable internal hanging canopy
