The Rab Summit Extreme is based on the older Outdoor Designs Summit Extreme but with a few changes. It is also the only tent in the world market constructed of the amazingly breathable eVENT fabric. Unfortunately, the current Easton 7075 aluminum poles are heavier and less strong than the previous Easton Carbon FX models. The Summit Extreme also retains the Outdoor Designs model's small footprint and low 28 inch roof, making it tight for two hikers. However, the low profile design, 13 guy-out points, and dual "donut link" tieout points make it the ultimate tent for extreme alpine placements and brutal weather conditions. This tent has few (if any) peers.
