Like a marmot's haven in a storm, the four-season Fortress protects two adventurers against the worst possible conditions.

Combination of pole sleeves and clips provide stability, strength and optimal headroom; internal guy system maximizes strength
Zip-open ceiling/door panels and adjustable airflow vents in rainfly give more control over the environment inside the tent
Large, poled vestibule provides 10 square feet of weather-protecting space for stowing gear
Removable ski loops provide the ability to use skis or snowshoes to stake down the tent
Large ceiling and wall pockets keep gear organized off the floor, plus burrito-style stuff sack converts to hanging pocket
Seam-taped bathtub floor and rainfly help ensure maximum protection against leakage
Silicon-treated zippers prevent icing, while jingle-free zipper pulls promote undisturbed sleep; door and window ties have cinch toggle for easy use
Locking pole tips provide easy one-person set-up; buckle rainfly attachments are quick and easy to use
Light-reflective points enable you to find tent at night; stress points are reinforced and bar-tacked
Repair kit includes adhesive fabric for quick repairs, pole repair sleeve, field repairable pole part and back-up rainfly buckle
For those trips when you only need bare-bones coverage use the rainfly, poles and ground sheet (sold separately) for a lightweight, sturdy shelter
Comes with stakes, stuff sacks and repair kit. Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only. Imported.
