The Orion II Extreme designed by the Swiss mountain sports experts at Expedition is perfect for expeditions. This free-standing tunnel tent comes complete with a long ridge pole and is incredibly sturdy in stormy conditions thanks to its aerodynamic shape, tear-resistant flysheet, strong tension loops that attach directly to the pole sleeves as well as extremely resilient Dyneema guy lines with a breaking strain of 200kg. The external flat pole sleeve and the internal pole sleeves serve to support the aerodynamics of the tent. The two-man expedition tent has 2 large entrances with a raised floor to keep the snow out of the interior. Of course, as two entrances are an absolute must for expedition tents for mountaineering, especially at high altitudes, this tent comes with two to make tent life more comfortable and convenient. That way, you and your partner wont get in each others way when packing or getting read to head out. Plus, the Orion II Extreme has two vestibules, providing plenty of storage space for both of your rucksacks, cooking or slipping your overshoes on and off. Its little things like that just make living with one another in close quarters much easier and more pleasant.
In terms of interior space, the Orion II Extreme from Exped has plenty to offer - you and your partner can even sit upright in the centre. The gear loft, which is a storage net in the inner tent designed for things you may need quick access to in the dark, such as your head torch or toilet paper, wont bother you in the least! On the sides of the inner tent, theres also room for both you and your partner to store personal belongings in addition to the mesh pockets. The sealed seams and completely seam-sealed tub floor will prevent any water seeping through.
This tent is not just good for high altitudes but also a great choice for photography or bird-watching trips. This is where youll certainly appreciate the No-See-Um mosquito net.
