Extra strong and stable, the Keb Dome 2 Tent is a four-season dome tent optimised for exposed conditions and challenging terrain. A reliable choice that is easy to handle in the cold, perfect for advanced winter trips and for use above the treeline, yet still lightweight enough to be packed in a trekking backpack. Excellent ventilation and doors entirely in mesh make it a great alternative for adventures in the tropics as well.
The flysheet and inner tent are connected to make pitching simple. Its three-pole construction makes the tent self supporting and easy to move about until you find the perfect position. The pole sleeves are big enough for double poles (available separately) so the tent can withstand even higher winds and more snow on the roof. Extra large ground loops and anchor points mean you can use skis or poles to anchor the tent in snow. All pullers and lines are dimensioned so they can be easily handled with thick winter gloves on. Guylines have reflective yarn woven in and extra reflectors at the vents and doors make the tent visible in the darker months of the year. The tent pegs are also extra long and wide for good grip in difficult terrain.
Two spacious vestibules and generous ceiling height make tent life comfortable. Entrances from two sides mean you can use the lee-side entrance in stormy weather. A removable mesh shelf in the inner tent's ceiling provides convenient storage for gear.
Ventilation is excellent and fully adjustable with large openings at different heights. All openings have fine mesh and can be covered with the flysheet on the outside if the tent is used in snow or sand. In warm weather the doors can be fastened in a half-opened position – the zips have an auto-lock function so that they won't creep open in strong winds – for extra ventilation without rain getting into the inner tent. Mosquito netting in the flysheet doors means you can be in the vestibule without too many insects visiting, which<
