Description

Show Description

Sturdy and strong, just the ticket to withstand storms at basecamp. The Mad House tent is a 2-room mansion for 6 people, with space cook during windstorms and hang out while you acclimatize. The larger vestibule's door can be set up like an awning for shade on bluebird days.

  • Fly is Dominico® ripstop polyester with a higher tear strength than conventional ripstop.
  • Taped seams plus storm flaps on the vestibule zippers keep water out.
  • Double doors and vestibules give an entrance and gear storage to both sides.
  • Dual-zippered front door can be rigged up like an awning with your hiking poles.
  • Removable wall provides dual-room setup option.
  • Fly vent and 2-way vestibule zippers create a cross-breeze to reduce condensation.
  • Ceiling and doors have closeable mesh panels for venting.
  • Interior loops and mesh pockets keep sleeping area clutter-free.
  • Reflective guylines and webbing for nighttime visibility.
  • Easy grip zipper pulls, toggles and buckles can be used with gloves on.
  • Footprint sold separately.
