Macpac Aspiring Alpine Tent
Why we made this
A bombproof four-season, three-person expedition tent designed to support adventurers in alpine conditions with high winds heavy snow loads.
The Aspiring tent is built around a geodesic structure. Five poles and nine pole intersections distribute the forces of nature through the structure, giving the tent stability in high winds and strength under heavy snow loads. The fly is constructed with UV30™ PU, our premium fly material designed for continued strength under prolonged UV exposure. The floor is built with our legendary Torrentwear™ XP tub design for maximum waterproofness and durability. Wind and snow often make life in the mountains hard work. That's why we added two roomy vestibules, equipped with storm flaps, giving sheltered entry, cooking and gear storage. We’ve created a unique vent system that encourages airflow, managing condensation without compromising insulation. A larger version of the two-person Plateau tent, the Aspiring is designed to support three people in alpine or polar conditions, through all four seasons.
