Mountain Hardwear Space Station Tent: 15-Person 4-Season


Product Details

Every base camp out there has at least one Mountain Hardwear Space Station Tent for communication centers, dining halls, hospitals, and sleeping fifteen alpinists of course. Built out of a burly nylon taffeta with multiple PU and silicon coatings for waterproof protection, the highly durable Space Station was designed specifically for high altitude and extended alpine expeditions. Fifteen industry-leading Paleria DAC Pressfit poles make sure this tent doesn't bend against wind and storms, and an adjustable partial coverage rain fly works with the perimeter snow flaps to keep the inside dry and comfortable. The Space Station also features SVX windows so everyone can check the conditions without opening one of the three doors. A zippered top thru-vent lets out steam, and ten adjustable vents bring a sufficient amount of airflow in. An internal perimeter skirt offers off-ground space, and internal pockets help you organize all your personal gear. Bartacks color-coded webbing at each stake-out point help with set-up, and a rugged duffel bag provides easy transportation.

Price : $ 4999.95

Winter Tents Checklist

Quality? Thankfully, most four-season tents are high-quality. You can't go wrong getting a tent by The North Face, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear or Black Diamond.
Don't Get Too Big! Due to the bulk of winter camping gear, many people get "too large" of a tent. Unless you truly have use for a large tent (due to having more people), it's better to match the tent's size to the number of people.
Smaller Tents Stay Warmer. A smaller tent will stay warmer with the same people in it. Thus, a tent designed for four people (but which has only two people in it), will not be as warm as a two-person tent with two people in it. Yes, it's common sense, but many people forget about it.
Convertible Tents? There are a few four-season winter tents that are known as "convertible tents," working for both three season and four-season uses. These tents are alright for late fall/early spring use where there exists a high probability of winter weather. However, convertible tents are NOT ideal for either intense winter camping OR normal three-season use.
If You Camp in Both Winter And Summer. Instead of getting a convertible tent, it's best to get one dedicated tent for three-season use and another for dedicated four-season use. It's not necessarily anymore expensive, either.
