BFD (7 meter dome)
The largest production dome of its kind. The BFD is ideal for basecamp use for large groups. Made out of ET70 Fabric with a titanium dioxide coating, this dome is made to last season after season. (Tents made with titanium dioxide coated fabrics have lasted up to 10 years of seasonal use at Everest basecamp).

Intended Use: The BFD was designed with high altitude expeditions in mind, however it has proven itself in many conditions and environments all over the world. One of the biggest advantages the BFD has over other shelters in this category is the venting and window system. The airflow in this shelter is unprecedented in domes of this size, allowing it to be inhabited during the heat of the day, and still protect you in the heaviest of storms. From high desert to high alpine, the BFD has your group covered.
- Capacity: Sleeps 20+ people & gear
- 15 windows/vents (5 of which have an optional clear window)
- 15 Easton poles
- Cobra clips (injection molded acetyl plastic, which remains flexible to -40 degrees, stainless steel gate)
- Internal tie downs/O-rings: Allows you to set up many options for hanging, storage or internal guying. When properly strung and tensioned the internal tie down system will greatly increase the strength of the tent much like the spokes and rim of a bicycle wheel. Our clear polymer window film does not yellow from UV exposure and remains flexible to below -40 degrees.
- All of the window coverings are made of white ET70 and are on the outside of the structure simultaneously protecting the window film from UV light while reflecting heat when closed. (This allows the BFD to excel in almost any condition where large groups need to congregate. Great for expos, trade shows and in-laws as well.)
- Reinforced attachment points are 3-layer ET70 sewn over a nylon core.
- Reflective grommets are alphanumerically labeled and pole specific to reduce confusion.
- 870D nylon perimeter skirt
