Guard Station 8 Base Camp Tent
Two Nights $150, Subsequent Nights $45

Our Guard Station 8 is a dome-style mountaineering expedition dream shelter burly enough to withstand extreme high-altitude, high-alpine conditions. The Guard Station 8 features an external pole design which means it can be set up as a free-standing group shelter, or clip in the tent body to create a double-wall tent. The DAC exoskeleton pole system is incredibly strong and offers generous living space, with polyester rip-stop material developed to provide high UV resistance and stability in the most extreme environments. 

Accessory body also included

The Guard Station 8 Accessory Body provides an interior upgrade to your Guard Station for adventure-driven mountaineers looking for a cozy and enclosed living space on high-alpine expeditions. No additional poles needed, this accessory tent body with floor easily clips inside the Guard Station to create a double-wall shelter, equipped with ample pockets and integrated gear storage solutions. Transform your Guard Station 8 into a bonafide mission control center and protect yourself from the elements, Big Agnes style.
