Big Agnes Battle Mountain Tent: 3-Person 4-Season Big Agnes Battle Mountain Tent: 3-Person 4-Season
Big Agnes built the Battle Mountain 3 Tent to withstand alpine and basecamp condtions, and remain light enough for expedition travel. Durable Cordura and rugged ripstop keep this four-season tent strong for the roughest of your travels, and PU coatings and fully taped seams offer reliable protection in snowy or rainy weather. The nylon canopy has zippered mesh panels for ventilated airflow in warmer weather. The Battle Mountain uses DAC's sturdy NSL poles with H and Twist Clips for a simple-and-secure setup. Unlike most four-season tents, the Battle Mountain has a dual door and vestibule design for extra convenience. The high-low guy loops let you set up in snow, and the oversized stake out loops accommodate skis, ski poles, and ice axes if you choose to leave the anchor-compatible Mega X stakes at home. The fast fly option lets you leave the canopy at home in order to shed weight for summer alpine missions.

Mountain Hardwear Stronghold Tent: 10-Person 4-Season Mountain Hardwear Stronghold Tent: 10-Person 4-Season
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. Make no mistake, the Stronghold didn't grow up to be this big and burly without lifting some serious weights and putting on some pretty legit bulk: it weighs 42 pounds, which seems like a lot until you realize that you're probably not throwing this on your back and schlepping it in yourself, but loading it onto a mule or into a plane for the trip out to the glacier. You should also take into account that you're getting 15 DAC Pressfit aluminum poles, a 70D nylon taffeta fly with PU and silicone coatings, and perimeter snow flaps to seal out snow and lock in heat. There's an internal perimeter skirt, too, which is the Stronghold's secret do-it-all weapon: you can make a bombproof anchor by stacking your gear on it and shoveling some snow around the outside, or you can carve snow benches and drape the skirt over it, creating waterproof easy chairs for the whole gang. While you're lounging, take a peek out one of the five SVX windows to check on the conditions, or you can get up and stick a head out one of the two doors, if you're feeling brave. It'll clear up soon, promise.

Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 Tent 2-Person 4-Season Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 Tent 2-Person 4-Season
When the weather gods start dropping bombs on your basecamp, retreat to the Mountain Hardwear Trango 2 Tent and sit out the storm in time-tested alpine style. The Trango's been around since 1995 and, like cheese and wine, has only gotten better as it's gotten older. Weighing under nine pounds, it's considerably lighter than many basecamp-style tents, but doesn't give up weatherproofing or durability to get there. It pitches using four DAC Featherlite aluminum poles (a fifth supports the vestibule for extra storage space), and boasts fully-taped seams on the fly and floor to keep the elements at arm's length, or even further away. All the fabrics are tightly-woven, high-denier nylon, and feature either DWR treatments, in the case of the body, or polyurethane and silicone coatings (floor and fly) that have been tested in a rain room to ensure they'll stay watertight through the burliest mountain storms. You might be stuck inside for a while, but at least you'll have a small window to look out of (not that there'll be much to see), and two mesh doors that'll keep some air moving through so you don't go any crazier than you have to. If the weather gets nice, you can even set up the Trango with the Pitchlight option, which uses just the fly and footprint (sold separately) to provide a shelter that weights under 6. 5 pounds. No matter how you choose to pitch, the vestibule has snow flaps that hug the ground to seal out wind and spindrift, fully-welded guy-out points and zipper flaps, and waterproof zippers for extra weather protection.

The North Face Mountain 25 Tent: 2-Person 4-Season The North Face Mountain 25 Tent: 2-Person 4-Season
Designed to withstand surly winter storms, whipping winds, and downright bone-chilling temperatures, The North Face Mountain 25 Tent is a stout 2-Person 4-Season shelter ideal for everything from winter camping in the Rockies to glacier hunkering in the Chugach. Being the most compact tent in the Summit Series, the Mountain 25 is a great option for self-supported missions with a burly build but a highly manageable trail weight of just under nine pounds, so you don't need a plane or a helicopter to carry it for you.The Mountain 25 may not be the heaviest expedition-style shelter around, but it's built to withstand the kind of weather you'll inevitably encounter during winter in the mountains. The 40D nylon fly strikes a good balance between strength and weight, is treated with a PU/silicone coating, and has fully taped seams to repel sleet and snow, even when they don't stop for days on end. The untreated main canopy is equipped with dual doors and mesh vents, so you don't wake up to dewy mess halfway through the night. When the storm carries on longer than you thought possible, you can peek through the polyurethane port window and check on the conditions (hint: they're probably still bad). The North Face crack-tested the window down to -60F, so you won't have to worry about severe arctic temps wreaking havoc on it, although polar bears may still pose a threat. Inside the Mountain 25 are eight pockets to keep everything organized, so you don't lose your mind due to clutter during that three day storm, and multiple internal hanger loops to provide a spot to hang wet and smelly gear before you turn in for the night.
