A tent that is at home beside a Lowland lake, but more than capable than withstanding fickle Himalayan weather. 8.5mm 7001 T6 alloy poles and a Hytex 6000 Flysheet (Hydrostatic head of 6000mm) and a Hytex 8000 groundsheet (Hydrostatic head of 8000mm) all contribute to its strength. I have used the tent in 80 mph buffeting winds combined with driving rain and it has easily withstod this. Dual porches make for more covienient exit/entrance according to the weather. The tent can withstand heavy snowloading thanks to its geodesic design. A tent that can be relied on. Comes with a repair kit as standard and pointed super strength alloy pegs.
