large dome tents

Introduction

  • these can often be used as a hot tent with a wooden stove
  • many have great 360deg visibility and ventilation thanks to large windows and multiple doorways, often supplemented with clear TPU material for extra warmth
  • some have geodesic frames for extra wind resistance

small 2P semi-geodesic with stove vestibule

Pomoly Leo 2

  • great 4 season severe weather hike tent for a small stove
  • 3.1m long x 1.8m/1.5m wide x 1.3m tall includes 1m long floorless vestibule for stove and wood;
  • 40D 3000mm PU ripstop silnylon outer with ceiling vents
  • removable 2.1m long x 1.65/1.3m wide full fabric inner tent has three No-See-Um mesh + fabric doors and 40D 3000mm PU ripstop silnylon bathtub floor which has buckles on each corner to attach to outer
  • 3 x 8mm alloy poles;
  • 3.8kg;
  • pros:
    • relatively light given its high degree of versatility - usual 2P hike tents only have doors and each with a small vestibule and no stove jack.
    • 4 outer doors each with zips that allow awning style opening or roll back or roll down opening
    • good value for money
    • relatively small footprint and freestanding design gives versatility on small sites where the larger tents will not fit, especially the tipis that require long guy outs
    • set up outer first so inner does not get wet in the rain
    • full fabric inner tent for warmth (apart from ceiling mesh for ventilation)
    • all inner tent doors are very large dual fabric and mesh for extreme versatility in ventilation, temperature control as well as great exit options in case of emergency
  • cons:
    • a bit heavy and bulky for hiking especially if also carrying a stove but in winter you could leave the inner tent behind
    • vestibule doors fold towards the stove end so less versatile for reducing wind chill into inner tent whilst allowing vestibule ventilation and access to stove however this can be partly resolved by siting of tent for the wind and closing the windward vestibule door
    • not wide enough to sleep side on to the stove
    • poles are passed through long sleeves and can be more difficult to set up and take down as a result - set up flat and must push all poles setting up or taking down
    • pole are only 8mm - perhaps 9.5mm would have been better as a true 4 season tent
    • waterhead rating only 2500mm overall despite fabric at 3000mm - not really enough for the floor - you might need a tarp under the floor!
    • the nice large area stove jack is only ~70cm height (can't use a Winnerwell pipe oven and the triple shield chimney will be too close to stove to be as effective safety measure)
    • unlike most hot tents with velcro removable stove jacks, this stove jack is sewn into tent so take care not to damage it!
    • stove is relatively close to tent fabric so great care is needed - you MUST guy out the chimney!
    • has tension web straps to allow it to freestand
