A new design

Camp After the PFF testing have been done while building an ice airdrome for an international expedition to the North Pole in 1999, a new model of PFF was designed by us - the "Antarctica" tent, whose design is optimized regarding long maintenance in low-temperature conditions.
The new tent provides a comfort being for up to 10 people with the outdoor temperature about 50 below zero. It differs from its precursors being more durable and hard in design, increased resistance against wind and snow load.

To make the tent more comfortable, windows with blinds, ventilation system with blinds, flue of extra heating outlet (except the heater hose), catch drains above the doors are provided in the tent.

This design, according to the specialists' estimation, is the most optimum for small groups' accomodation (up to 10 people) in extreme conditions.
