The Robens Fortress 3 has been updated for the 2014 season but loses none of it great qualities. The Fortress 3 is an extremely stable fully geodesic dome tent accommodation for three people and a large porch area that's perfect for gear storage. With 3-season performance the Fortress is ideal for trekkers who demand a lot from their equipment without blowing their budget.
The Fortress 3 has a 4-pole dome construction - two sets are inserted in long pole sleeves for strength and two sets of cross over bracing poles utilize the external double-clip-on hook system for speed of pitching.
The porch area features two entrance doors so you can enter/exit the tent away from the worst of the weather. These entrances allow campers convenient access to the tent inner and access to their equipment which can easily be stored in the porch area.
The breathable polyester inner is an amply sized 3-berth and features an O-shaped door that can be easily stowed, mesh storage pockets and gear rope to help with kit storage. For ventilation there's double roof vents that can be operated from inside or outside the tent.
