Ca­bela’s West Wind™ Dome Tent

4WDrive - - Contents -

If you need a spa­cious, light­weight tent for overnight or over­land­ing ad­ven­tures, check out Ca­bela’s WestWind Dome tent. This wind­proof, wa­ter­proof tent comes in 4-, 6-, and 8-man mod­els, but we chose the 6-man ver­sion of this tent as it al­lows you to stand up in­side the tent but still only weighs 9.7 kg. Be­ing able to stand up in the tent is just one the key fea­tures we de­mand from a tent as well as loops, pock­ets and a gear loft to keep ev­ery­thing off the floor. Nat­u­rally it has to be wa­ter­proof so you and your gear stay dry, so the West Wind is de­signed with a 1500mm wa­ter­proof rat­ing to do just that. It has a vestibule where you can dump your out­er­wear be­fore get­ting into the main tent where it is cozy and clean. Win­dow and door vents pro­vide ven­ti­la­tion us­ing a fine mesh screen to keep the bugs out – any­one who has camped and fished in Man­i­toba or North­ern On­tario knows how crit­i­cal this is. Hard as we might try to set-up camp early, of­ten we’re tired and the light is wan­ing by the time we do. 100% ny­lon taffeta con­struc­tion, colour-coded clips, shock-cord fi­bre­glass poles, good guy lines, stakes and a carry bag make it is easy to set-up.

All in all a well de­signed three-sea­son tent for the Cana­dian out­doors. MSRP: $350 CAD | Ca­
