Mad House 6

Four season, free standing, mountaineering tents

Stronger, more stable, and built to withstand the harshest of conditions, the Mad House series of shelters are much more than standard tents. They are the Everest base camp dining rooms, buttoned up Black Rock City roosts, and Vedauwoo wind refuges. The Mad House series is our biggest mountaineering design. Try one as an all-season, two-room condo with plenty of space to stretch out and relax on acclimation days, or as a place to serve pancakes to the entire summit team.

Construction + Materials

Color is achieved using a unique pigmentation process in the polyurethane, which resists fading and increases UV resistance; extending the longevity of the fabric when used in high altitude conditions.

Fly with 1200mm waterproof polyurethane coating plus an additional polyurethane coating on the face of the fabric to increase tear strength and UV resistance.

Tent body is polyester rip-stop breathable and polyester mesh

Floor is polyester Oxford with a 5000mm polyurethane coating

All seams taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (No PVC or VOC's)

What’s in a Name?

The "Mad House" was a pioneer-style guard station once used to house Forest Service field workers working in the Routt National Forest in the 60's. You won't find it along the Mad Creek Trail today, but you may find some of the bleached cow bones that were hung over the front door of the crew house proclaiming it's name and likely the state of it's occupants if they came home from a day of fishing nearby Mad Creek empty-handed.
