EXPED tents can be set up in many different ways for optimal comfort in changing conditions. But one specific environmental condition, known as CAVU in aviation circles, might be our favorite. CAVU stands for "ceiling and visibility unlimited" and many of our tents have a set-up mode that takes full advantage it. We call it Optimist Mode™, and it allows views of the stars while keeping crawly things and insects out. 

In 1997, EXPED introduced an entirely new tent design to the world - the ridge-tunnel. It combines the generous space and low weight of tunnel tents with the stability and free-standing properties of geodesic tents. 

The Venus III DLX Plus is a unique exoskeleton basecamp tent with a huge, pole supported vestibule.

“A tent is a temporary shelter that is easily disassembled and transported. To improve internal climate and reduce condensation some tents feature a canopy covered by rainfly design.” This a brief Wikipedia definition of a tent. A tent is not a house with a combination of insulating and venting layers that regulate humidity on the inside.

Condensation in a tent can result for various reasons.
