Show Description

When Mother Nature throws it down, here’s where to hide. Our Himalayan-proven Nunatak is designed for mountain expeditions and is several hundred grams lighter than earlier models. It now has beefier pegs and guy lines and has added snow flaps to improve its anchoring capacity and aid weather protection.

  • Low-profile geodesic dome shape provides maximum resistance to snow and wind.
  • Mesh pole sleeves maximize strength while allowing air circulation.
  • Two vestibules: the deeper hooped one makes a good storage or cooking area, the other is an excellent airlock for exits and entries.
  • U-shaped doors improve ventilation.
  • Strong guy lines are reflective, and have mitt-friendly tensioners.
  • Pegs are a mix of Easton Gold round pegs for easy driving and Y cross-section aluminum pegs for maximum strength and holding power.
  • Multiple external guy line anchors for battening down in rough weather.
  • Internal guy line anchors for rigging in extreme conditions.
