Shhhhh. Zpacks Hexadome Tent

You know you want it – a 7’ long cuben dome fully enclosed tent with 5” bathtub floor secretly under development by cuben wizard Joe at Zpacks.  Roomy for one, adequate for two.

Known as the Hexadome, a prototype, with a cost of perhaps around $549, just enough to make sure you don’t get that set up implants you wanted or that your kid misses his first semester of college.

The seams are taped.  The floor is sewn in.  There are two entrances.  Beaks can be dropped lower for extra rain protection.

It is 7’ x 42” wide on the inside.

The tent with taped seams, guylines, sewn in floor and stuff sack are a mere 16oz. 

Two poles are 4oz and 6 titanium stakes are 1.2oz. 

Total weight – 25.2 oz.

Say it with me.  Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  Now buy me one too.
