Macpac Fairydown Plateau Tent

Superb Mountain & Trekking Tent in very good condition. We have previously camped & trekked in many places around the world & a priority has always been that we have a strong brilliant tent. This certainly is that.

Makes a huge difference knowing that regardless of the conditions you will wake up dry & the tent will comfortably survive some of the strongest winds. Fantastic proven geodesic design.

WEIGHT Total 4.2kg : In Use 3.9kg
CAPACITY 2/3 person

The Plateau tents were originally made by Fairydown & Macpac now make them & retail for approx $1000

This tent has had very little use & only used in NZ. We originally purchased from Antarctic NZ about 3 years ago. They used to use this type on the big ice. ANZ advised that this particular tent was used for training purposes only, this was done to ensure staff were confident should they need to erect whilst in Antarctica. I think they purchased the tent in 2006.

More info can be found on the following link

We don't have the original carry bag for the fly & inner but everything else is there. There is a small amount of writing by ANZ near both doors.

Great colour, waking in a bright colour makes it seem that every day is a sunny day.
Times are changing for us, we need to clear a few thing out, hence the sale.
