The Battle Mountain is a spacious, four-season, lightweight mountaineering tent that offers full protection in the harshest of backcountry and high-alpine conditions. The golden yellow color of the Battle Mountain was requested by Chhiring Dorje Sherpa, a Big Agnes Ambassador and friend who has summited Mount Everest 16 times, to honor the Tibetan Buddhism goddess of prosperity and good fortune, Miyo Losangma. Her skin is golden yellow, so when Chhiring sets up this tent it will stand out as a tribute to her. The fly is a made of Dominico undyed polyester ripstop made with high-tenacity yarns that provides incredible tear strength and UV resistance, so the golden-colored tribute won’t fade in the harsh elements. With so much experience summiting 8,000+ meter peaks around the Himalaya, Chhiring’s input on the overall design of the Battle Mountain - and his testing of them over the years - is invaluable and solidifies it as one of the best mountaineering tents on the market.
