Mountain Hardware Stronghold tent
The gold standard in group tents for high altitude and high alpine needs.
When the weather disintegrates at Nanga Parbat basecamp, huddle your team inside the ten-person Mountain Hardwear Stronghold Tent for meals, weather briefings, or to play some poker until you can go outside again. It’s a good thing the Stronghold’s ginormous, because it might be a while. Designed to shelter large groups in the worst mountain weather on the planet, this huge, floorless (footprint sold separately) double-walled dome can be used as a common gathering space, kitchen, sleeping quarters, or all of the above, with a six-foot-plus ceiling and 15-foot diameter that provides plenty of room for 10 rugged mountaineers to hang out in (relative) comfort. The dome shape is designed to shed wind and snow, and there’s a series of perimeter and roof vents to keep air moving when you’re cooking or just lying back smelling bad.
Hilleberg Atlas Tent – Tent, vestibules, connector tube, and inner liner available
LARGE GROUP TENTS that are very strong, relatively light, and easy to pitch are difficult to find. The Atlas is all these things and more, since it is also totally modular. We originally designed and built the Atlas for polar scientists who wanted a mobile research station, and it has been used with great success by South Pole research teams for over seven years. It appeals to large backcountry groups of all types, from mountaineering expeditions needing a highly reliable, spacious base camp tent to outdoor programs looking for large, easily portable spaces for sleeping and group gathering. It has also become especially popular with outfitters leading large groups into remote places.
The Atlas can be used in its Basic form, with no inner tent or floor, or it can be customized as needed with a variety of options. The Inner Tent 8 and 6, which sleep eight and six persons, respectively, both have sewn-in floors. The Floorless Inner also sleeps eight, and can be paired with the Detachable Floor, which can also be used without the inner tent. External Vestibules can be added to either door, and the Connector can join multiple Atlas tents together. And the included Carrier Bag is designed to function as a backpack for transporting an Atlas and all its optional components in a compact, easy-to-carry package.
