embodying the principle of ‘do more with less’, the north face ‘geodome 4’ tent comfortably accommodates four occupants in its unique form, while toughing out japan’s most harshest weather. although seemingly being a complicated shape, the structure can actually be assembled easily with only five main and one equator poles. as such, campers can effortlessly carry and store the 11.07 kg weighing package.
