We have combined exceptional tent design and fabric knowledge to create the most advanced polar pyramid tents available today. Capable of withstanding the harshest weather on the planet, these tents are at the pinnacle of shelter design.
One Planet Polar gear has been developed as a joint venture between One Planet and the Australian and New Zealand governments' Antarctic organisations to ensure it suits the exact requirements of their scientific research programs.
The Polar Pyramid Vestibule is based on the standard Polar Pyramid but has an extended panel providing a spacious porch and extra storage area. It is ideal for longer stays, and makes an excellent kitchen or workshop.
Our eight-ounce canvas is incredibly hard-wearing and tough. It is breathable and has high UV resistance, allowing it to withstand repeated extended periods in the Antarctic sun. Colours are chosen for high visibility and to create a harmonious interior environment. Clear windows let in natural light and provide excellent weather observation ports. Each pole sleeve has four external lash points, allowing antennas and solar panels to be hung outside the tent. Multiple air vents ensure that in even the heaviest snow deposition, occupants can breath easy.
Other features include:
hardened aquaphobic floor material, and snow valances;
strong but light 48 millimetre drawn alloy frames;
eight millimetre guy ropes all round;
tunnel door entry with double closure ties;
guy pockets keep the tent tidy in transit and during pitching;
