Show Description

A burly expedition shelter for places where Mother Nature really throws it down. Heading to Denali or Mount Logan? The MEC Nunatak has been wind-tunnel- and snow-load-tested to simulate the high-elevation storms and exposed glacier settings you'll encounter. The dome structure offers a reasonable amount of headroom and living space, without compromising its wind-shedding ability or making it a beast that's too heavy to pack. Guy-out points with pre-attached lines, plus large loops to fit skis, let you pin it down during storms. With a snow skirt and room for both occupants to put on their boots, the front vestibule extends the practical space. A rear vestibule adds gear storage and gives you a back hatch to exit from during the night.

  • Fly is lightweight, durable 40-denier polyester ripstop with an ether-type polyurethane waterproof coating.
  • Floor is durable 70-denier nylon with a heavy-duty ether-type polyurethane waterproof coating.
  • High-strength DAC Pressfit aluminum poles with green anodizing.
  • 4-pole dome structure provides headroom, snow-shedding capacity and stability in wind from any direction.
  • Large, side-entry front vestibule with hooped pole. Secondary rear door and vestibule for extra storage and exit options.
  • Side-loading pole sleeves lets you set up the tent solo, even in windy conditions. (Just peg it down first!)
  • Snow skirts on the front vestibule keep blowing snow out and warmth in.
  • Interior arch-shaped door opening allows 2 people to sit side by side.
  • Pre-attached reflective guylines are positioned to add strength and support in windy conditions.
  • Cam cleat guyline adjustments and reflective zipper pulls are easy to use with gloves on.
  • Oversized stake-out loops let you use skis as pegs in snowy conditions. 18 aluminum J-stakes are included for snow-free campsites.
  • 4 internal pockets keep you organized.
  • Storage bag with side compression straps for compact carrying.
  • Includes a pole repair sleeve, fabric repair swatches and a pole sack with set up instructions.
  • Footprint sold separately.
