Generally when I think of big storms what comes to mind is swirling heavy snow, dark clouds and wind. Maybe it's the fact that I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and climb a lot in Alaska, but precipitation and moisture are an important part of a big storm in my mind's eye. 

We were out using the Polaris recently and this reminded us of just how very good this tent is. 

Designed specifically for alpine mountaineering, where strength and low weight are necessities, the Polaris has proven itself in the most savage conditions imaginable.
