This is a double layer, all season, free standing and outer first winter tent that you can bank upon during longer expeditions in extreme weather conditions.
This is a durable and feature-rich tent, thus making it an ultimate mountaineering tent. The inner tent’s doors have double layers of mesh and fabric. You could unzip the fabric layer to allow cross ventilation from mesh. Vestibules are large enough to accommodate 4 x 60l packs. The Outer and Inner tent are connected to each other at all times thus cutting back on the pitching time significantly.
Fully seam taped outer rain fly and floor of inner tent. A spare protective Ground sheet not included but highly recommended to increase the working life in rockier terrain.
Recommended use: Base camps, glacier walks, high altitude treks, mountaineering (recommended maximum pitching altitude: 6,000 masl)
Four-season, Three-person, Tunnel type hybrid tents.
Tethys Tents are our very uniquely designed Hybrid shaped tents. It combines the comfort and lighter weight of a tunnel tent with the stability of a geodesic dome shaped tents.
Generally, simple Dome tents are easy to setup because they are free standing and do not need guy lines to pitch them but they are not so stable in the wind and the head room is rather limited. Geodesic domes are far more stable than simple domes but they are complex to setup and are heavier. Tunnel tents are lighter in weight, easier to setup and have generous head room but they are not free standing. If you do not have enough space to extend guy lines, then it can be tricky to pitch them tightly. Additionally, rain water and snow can accumulate on the top of the outer tent between the poles.
Tethys tent combines the best of both worlds. It is roomy like a tunnel tent but has the free standing nature of a dome tent combined with structural stability of a geodesic dome. The aerodynamic shape and the sloping roofs easily sheds the water, snow and wind.
The interiors of this tent are expansive and airy. The tent is built to withstand heavy downpours of rain and even snow.
