Review: Sierra Designs Stretch Dome Expedition [3-man, 4-season Tent ]
Product Description
The Stretch Dome Exhibition has all the features of the Stretch Dome CD, plus a larger expedition flysheet with a huge 12 square foot poled and vented vestibule. The polyester fly fabric, exclusive to Sierra Designs, is significantly more UV-resistant than any other fly fabric on the market, showing 50% greater tear resistance after 200 hours of UV exposure than other fly fabrics. This tent is the best choice in a high altitude mountaineering tent.

Retail: $620

Summary:
I winter camp and wanted a tent that I wouldn't have to worry about blowing down - this is it. One morning we awoke to a 40 mph ground blizzard but the tent was standing strong even without any external guy-lines or the internal guy-lines (which really turn this thing into a building). I replaced all of the metal zippers with noise-less zipper-pulls (now standard) so that I could sleep. If you can get this thing on sale, you won't be sorry.

Customer Service:
Had a pole-tip fall out on me somewhere and SD would have replaced it but I did it myself instead for 85 cents.

Summary:
Great tent, easy to setup, great airflow which is a must for summer and winter.
A little heavy, but no biggie if you split the tent / fly / pole between you and another person(s).
I got mine for only $360 from REI outlet.

Summary:
i've had this tent for a number of years and have used it in all sorts of conditions. in winter, it's especially nice, as it feels loads warmer in it's roomy interior than it does outside. it's a little on the heavy side though, which is a pain in the ass in summer, but not as annoying in winter. a great tent overall!

Summary:
Great tent, good ventilation, very light and very roomy. This is a serious tent. leaves you plenty of room in the vestibule to put you gear and wet boots. Can be tricky to set up in the dark and it is quite expensive @ 5 hung(hunn-zj).

Customer Service:
Small fee and mailing items out is a pain in the a$$
