The North Face 2 Metre Dome Tent is an impressive tent by all accounts. It is a massive Geodesic Base camp tent that sleeps up to 8 people. Specifically designed for long periods in the mountains this tent would make a comfortable safe haven. The Dome shape is extremely durable and efficient in the tough environments of the mountains. The steep walls easily shed snow and the high head height maximises the usable space of The North Face 2-Meter Dome base camp palace. This all comes at a price though, £5,000.
The tent has 2 doors which allow cross ventilation, a chimney vent and 2 windows (if you want to look at the view outside or check the weather. Sleeping isn’t the only use as a base camp it can be set up as a communications centre, medical unit or cook, dine and store gear and food in it.
