  • The Rocket Tent saves weight by using trekking poles instead of tent poles (tent poles do come with the tent) and an avalanche probe as a full-length ridge pole. These are items that most mountaineers carry, so they are put to double duty. The Rocket sleeps two with some room for gear and has a small floor-less vestibule.

    The Rocket Tent is perhaps the first competitor to the high-altitude wedge tents (compact tents with internal cross poles). One mountaineering friend said this would be the tent he would use on the Magic Line on K2. Others practically fought over it for use on ski trips.

  • Suspended from a hula hoop, this imaginative rocket ship is ready to take your little one to the far off places inspired by a good book. Once sewn and assembled, the rocket hangs from above providing a perfect kid-sized place to play. Fabric requirements include: 7 1/2 yds rocket body; 1 1/2 yds roof; 1 1/2 yds fins, bottom trim & feet; 2 1/2 yds doors, windows & bands; 3/4 yd each white & black; 3/4 yd windows. 'Rocket Reading Tent' pattern by Whistlepig Creek Productions. Finished size is about 86" x 50".

A downside to having a metallic fabric is the breathability. The vents in the Rocket Tent are certainly required and the inside of the tent door even has a suffocation warning. The tent has the ability to seal you off from the elements, although maybe a bit too sealed off. I was happy to see that the Rocket Tent was completely waterproof when I was sitting out a rainstorm all day and into the night. Not a single raindrop passed through any seam. The air flows through the vents and door relatively well and everything seemed to work nicely. The only issue I had with ventilation was the condensation buildup on the interior of the fabric. No matter the weather conditions, cold and snowy, wet and rainy, or dry and dusty; the condensation buildup overnight was an issue. In the cold, this is expected. The condensation turns to ice and you wake up to a morning snow shower. However, during a rainstorm and being confined to the tent for the better part of the day, it is not enjoyable to have such high condensation levels that your sleeping bag is getting wet from touching the tent walls. Not too many issues in the dry areas of the country. Only an occasional light dew showed up inside the tent. The Rocket Tent is one bombproof shelter with the large vestibule secured all the way to the ground.
