Exped Vela 1 Extreme Tent:
Minimalist tents often imply minimal weather protection in gusty conditions, but the Exped Vela 1 Extreme is built to weather the storm with a new lightweight Zipfree door that won't leak water. Combined with Exped's Downmats and WB sleeping bags, the Exped Vela 1 Extreme is your ticket to winter solitude without weighty compromises. The one-person setup can be pitched in under two minutes, even on uneven terrain. An extended vestibule makes it easy to keep all your gear inside the Exped Vela 1 Extreme (including backcountry skis) although you could share the vestibule space with a second stranded person in adverse conditions. Tie-down loops along the aerodynamically-enhanced pole sleeves allow you to cinch down the weather protection in snow, rain and extreme wind. Doubled seams and durable stitching help ensure that everything stays intact until the bad weather blows over.
