The SlingFin Hardshell is the winner of the 2013 OutDoor Industry Gold Award for outstanding achievement in design and innovation.

According to Outdoor Gear Lab, "The SlingFin HardShell tent is the equivalent of Air Force One for mountain climbers and polar explorers... We suspect that the HardShell is the best 3-4 person four-season dome tent on the planet."

The HardShell has been tested on the largest mountains across the globe, serving even as a wind block for other tents. It goes up quickly and intuitively, even in harsh conditions, thanks to four equal-length poles and a WebTruss™ system. It includes a two-pole High Wind Kit that adds even more strength when the weather turns ugly. The WebTruss™ effectively locks the poles in place, independent of the tent and fly, giving the structure maximum strength with or without the tent body. The HardShell is an ideal basecamp or mid-mountain shelter for four people, or three plus plenty of gear.
