The Mountain Hardwear Optic 6 is a huge dome tent based on the extremely popular smaller tents in the Optic series. All Optic tents offer a really neat design feature, whereby when pitched almost half the tent can be opened up to allow you a splendid, panoramic view of your surroundings.
The unique design of the Optic is achieved by a novel positioning the two doors: one on the side and one on the end, rather than being set at opposite end as is the norm. This means that when both are open, you can enjoy a 180° vista. Zip the large mesh inner doors into place and you can continue to enjoy the view without the intrusion of midges or other insects.
If the weather closes in - an all too common event in the UK! - the Optic 6 still provides the weather protection you’d expect from a full mountain tent, and will certainly handle far more than your average family camping tent. Two sizeable vestibules prove extremely useful for storage as well as providing dry access to the tent. The front entrance can also be set to provide a decent porch for dry external cooking etc. via the addition of a couple of trekking poles (sold separately).
An innovative design which brings a fresh perspective to your camping adventures.

This tent is supplied complete with an internal (reversible) divider, to provide additional privacy and organisation by separating the tent into two ‘rooms’. Both sides features large mesh pocketing options. Easy to attach and also roll or fold back for easy access (293g).
