Whether youre gone for a week or a season, The North Face Dome 5 Tent is the ideal expedition design for serious mountaineering and guiding. From top to bottom, The North Face recently updated the design with a lighter and more stable architecture. At the top youll find a ring-shaped aluminum hub that helps eliminate unnecessary pole sections and reduces the overall tent weight without sacrificing stability. Theres also an upper level vent that applies a new lift technology that helps the tent work with the wind instead of being knocked around. Despite the reduced weight, the Dome 5 still offers alpine extras like snow flaps along the base and hanger hooks for storing the canopy. Like many of the best designed mountaineering tents, the Dome 5 has an integrated polyurethane view window thats cold tested to -60F so you can check on the weather without compromising any of the warmth inside the tent. The guy-out points are numerous enough to weather big blows and the No-Stretch Kevlar guylines with camming adjustments are ideal for pitching in open spaces. Plenty of internal pockets along the walls make it easy for everyone to find a place for stowing their essentials, with easy access even after the last candle lantern flickers out.
