What is the Abisko Dome?

Fjallraven's tents have always been somewhat of a masterpiece; you're continuously finding new features even months after owning one. The Abisko Dome is no different, combining a free-standing construction with tough fabrics and a design which will last years of reliable four season use. It's ideal for those who want to buy once and not have to replace for a long, long time. 

How is the tent constructed?

Starting with the construction itself, the Abikso Dome is completely free standing and features three poles which cross over one another, creating an incredibly stable shelter in high winds and with heavy snowfall. Two entrances either side allow users to escape without waking the other up, but also to store kit separately in the vestibule areas. This is also useful in windy conditions, as you can open both doors to allow air to pass through, reducing the chance of damage to your tent. Once inside, a high ceiling gives you a metre of headroom to sit up and cook, get changed or simply live in if you're in one position for an extended period of time. 

What are its features?

Other useful features inside include four large mesh pockets to store a headtorch, food, clothes etc, and a detachable mesh shelf. Reflective guylines prevent you tripping up in dark conditions when using a headtorch.

What is the Abisko Dome made from?

Fabrics wise, Fjallraven use TripleRip siliconised nylon throughout to ensure it lasts years of use. Unlike many tents though, Fjallraven feature different thicknesses in areas which are prone to wear such as the lower of the tent. The lower is made from a thicker 40D nylon, whereas the rest of the flysheet is made from a lighter weight 15D nylon. The groundsheet is also beefed up to a 40D nylon to cope with general wear and tear, however we'd still recommend the use of a groundsheet which we offer at half price when bought with a partnering tent.

Summary

The Abisko Dome 2 is the perfect four-season tent for those who require more space and comfort than a tunnel tent. The fact that it's freestanding, along with super durable fabrics and a bombproof construction, means it can be used in a multitude of weather conditions and temperatures.

Care & Advice

How to Care for Your Tent

We know that purchasing a tent is a big investment, that’s why we have such a wide range of options to suit different activities, weather conditions and people, allowing you to choose the perfect one for you. Taking care of your brand new tent can be the difference between heading out for an adventure in the mountains, or having to fork out for a hefty repair bill, or even worse, another replacement tent. Below are our best tips to care for your tent.

Footprint

Before even leaving the shop (or online basket) with your tent, consider a footprint. A footprint is a large water-resistant piece of material which sits underneath your tent to protect it from sharp rocks and wet ground; if this footprint gets damaged, it’s easy to replace and doesn’t cost a fortune; if your tent groundsheet gets damaged, you’ll have to spend at least twice the amount for a repair or replacement.

Don’t Abuse the Poles

The chances are your poles are made from individual aluminium sections connected by elastic; when you come to remove the poles from the tent, don’t pull them out. The best way to remove poles from their sleeve is to place the pole end against your hip and pull the fabric towards you. If you simply attempt to pull the pole out, they’ll disconnect inside, the elastic will stretch and then spring back, potentially trapping the fabric of your tent between the pole sections.

You might also be tempted to flick the poles out so that the elastic snaps them into place in a quickfire fashion. However, this is far from ideal, as if the poles don’t align when they meet, you can easily damage or weaken the end of the pole, leading to future failure which is usually on the wettest and windiest nights!

Collapse Poles From the Centre

When your poles are safely removed from the sleeve, collapse them from the centre to avoid stretching the elastic.

Stuff, Don’t Fold

You were probably told when you were in the Scouts or doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award that the best way to pack your tent away is to neatly fold it into a rectangle, the width of your storage bag, roll it around the poles and pegs and then put it all in the stuffsack. However, whilst very neat and tidy, this method of packing can create permanent creases in the fabric, weaken the waterproofing and eventually split the fabric of your tent. The best solution is to simply stuff the tent fabric into the storage bag, just like you would a sleeping bag, and pack the poles separately. Make sure to leave and end or corner at the top, so that you can easily peg it out if your next campsite is windy. The poles normally have their own stuffsack so they can be packed separately, strapped to the outside of your pack or stored inside, allowing the tent fabric to be compressed for efficient packing.

Store it Dry

Let’s assume you’ve been out with your tent and the weather has been a little on the damp side. You’ve packed your tent away when wet and now you’re back home in the warm and dry with a nice of cup of tea reflecting on your latest adventure. But what about your poor soggy tent? The worst thing you can do is to leave it packed away wet, mildew will grow and eventually rot the tent, rendering it useless. As soon as you’ve finished that cup of tea, wipe off any excess dirt and moisture with a towel, then hang the tent somewhere where it can fully air out; a nice warm spare room or a garage is perfect. Alternatively, when it stops raining, pitch the tent outside in the sunshine to dry off. Let it air for at least 24 hours and once you are sure that it is bone dry it can be packed away for storage. Note - don’t tumble dry or hang the tent over a radiator or other direct heat source.

Don’t Store in the Stuffsack

Like your sleeping bag, it’s best not to store your sleeping bag in its stuffsack unless it has to be compressed for an activity. Leave it in a large duffel bag or supermarket ‘bag for life’ in a cool, well ventilated area so it can breathe.

Avoid Tree Sap

If you’ve ever had sap on your hands, you’ll know how horrible and sticky the stuff is; it’s even harder to remove from your tent flysheet. Pitch away from trees if possible.

Don’t Leave in the Sun

The majority of tents we stock are made from nylon. Nylon is incredibly tough, lightweight and easy to care for, however it will naturally degrade if left out in harsh sunlight for extended periods of time. Try to pitch your tent in the shade or strike the tent (pack it away) during the day. Polyester tents don’t suffer from this quite as badly, but it’s still a good habit to get into.

Leave Sharp Objects Outside

Boots, cooking equipment and other sharp/abrasive objects can all be stored in the vestibule, where there is less chance of it ripping a hole in your fly or groundsheet. You may not want to pop your pet in there, but at least carry a small blanket to avoid their claws damaging your groundsheet.

Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.
