What you get There’s tons of storage space in this Mountain Hardwear beefed-up four-season shelter, plus two large doors and vestibules that make it easy to shuffle gear and people in and out. A window brightens stormy days and lets you check weather conditions while above-average ventilation for a winter tent minimizes condensation. The pole design is simple to set up, even for first-timers, and it comes in two-, three-, and four-person models.
Trail cred “I’ve waited out multiple-day storms in this tent in Peru, Tibet, Alaska, and Nepal,” says alpine guide Dan Nash. “Not only is it secure in high wind and snow, but the interior space and features make mountaineering delays feel more like vacations than setbacks.”
