I recently endured about 48 hours in a rustic cabin in the mountain woods of central Idaho. I am not a big fan of camping and assumed a cabin would be more comfortable than a tent. That may be true for most tents, but this Mountain Hardware Stronghold Camping Tent isn't most tents. Besides looking really cool, this tent has plenty of ventilation for those muggy summer nights. With three zippered doors, a roof vent, and five perimeter vents, you are bound to get a nice cross-breeze going. If you are in to camping in the snow, this tent has you covered as well. A perimeter band around the floor of the tent allows you to create a water proof seating area on benches carved from the snow. It's doubled-walled and the dome shape minimizes wind load. At around $3,000, it is a bit pricier than my rustic cabin, but surely well worth it.
