Dome tents have a lightweight characteristic and simple method of erection.  Even a family dome tent is quick to erect.

The basic shape bends flexible poles, threaded though channels, into half circles with both ends fixed to the base of the tent, often as part of the groundsheet.  The poles are normally made from fibreglass or, more expensively from a metal alloy.  Stability is good in smaller models but, they can get less stable as they scale up in size.  The basic dome tent has two crossed poles to achieve the shape, however additional strength, and space, is achieved by increasing the number of poles so the tent has a fully geodesic shape.  The term geodesic dome is used to describe a tent where the poles criss-cross over the surface, intersecting to form triangles, making it the most stable type of tent for extreme conditions.

A dome tent has two or more flexible poles arranged in sleeves to form semi-circles and meeting at the central top point of the tent, hence making a ‘dome’ shape. The larger the dome, the less stable it is in the wind, so most dome tents are of a smaller size.

Dome tents can range from a very compact one or two man right up to a family sized dome camping tent with room to stand.  They are relatively inexpensive and due to the compact size when packed they are easy to transport.  Higher dome tents are more vulnerable in high winds than a frame tent so care should be taken in poor weather. We sell dome tents such as the Vango Alpha 300, 3 man dome tent, up to larger models such as the Kampa Caister 5 family dome tent.
