Bombshelter Tent is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ZackG from This is my Tent! If you're looking for a tent for extreme winter camping then look no further. The main reason this single walled tent kick's so much butt, is the (Bibler) material is perfectly waterproof, amazingly durable and ridiculously breathable. The interior poles stretch the tent as tight as a drum, meaning wind and snow load have very little effect. But, the beauty is the almost total absence of condensation after even very cold nights. During the day, what little moisture that has crystallized on the roof of the tent, is evaporated through the material instead of melting and dripping on your sleeping bag. I've used mine for weeks at a time in windy Patagonia, rainy North Cascades, frigged interior British Columbia, as well as snowy Alaskan Glacier's and have been totally satisfied in every weather condition. The single walled design means you have less material and more interior space, without sacrificing a thing! If I was to alter anything about this tent, it would be to add a bit more space in the vestibule and to get them for all my friends, so they can stop being jealous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul from Winter Mountaineering Bomb Shelter I bought this tent for an expedition to Alaska because i liked its smaller sibling, the Fitzroy, so much. The Bomb Shelter is bombproof in bad weather, it's big enough to comfortably sleep a team of 3, its design is minimalist enough for hauling around on a long trip, and its yellow wall color is cheerful even on bad weather or rest days. I suggest buying an "attic" so that you have an off-the-floor platform for drying gloves etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PaulT from Heavy but bomber... I've had my Bombshelter for about 10 years. I feel a bit like a dork writing this review, as I don't really use it for mountaineering, but I have done a ton of winter car camping in it. Sure the desert in the winter isn't that cold, or the snowy, but damm the wind can blow (every been in J-Tree when it's on? I've been pulled sideways on handjams on a poorly selected route during a wind storm). That's where this tent excels for me (as it also keep dust out of my stuff during the day while I am climbing. I can think of a handful of times we took my wife's three season that I wish I had this tent to keep all the dirt out from the wind). You want to buy a tent and be done for a lifetime? This is a great tent, but it ain't light, it doesn't pack small, and it is pricey (maybe you can find it on the cheap like I did used). Also, like Gor-Tex this stuff doesn't breath in a humid environment and there aren't a ton of vents, just FYI.
