The North Face’s futuristic Geodome 4 is an ultra-lightweight, ultra-strong tent modeled after a geodesic dome. Popularized by inventor and architect Buckminster Fuller, geodesic domes have triangular elements that distribute stress evenly throughout a structure, so they're able to withstand heavy loads. The four-person Geodome weighs just 25 pounds, and can survive winds up to 60 miles an hour. Available in limited quantities at select stores in the United States.
