Black Diamond BombShelter Tent Review

The Black Diamond BombShelter is a 4 person, 4 season, state of the art tent. The name bomb shelter is fitting because this tent could probably survive a bombing.

The storm-proof design features four Easton aluminum poles and the tent is constructed from Black Diamond’s proprietary ToddTex fabric.

The poles intersect seven times for maximum strength. Not one, but two vestibules provide covered points of entry and place for 4 sets of serious gear. Even with all this durability, the tent still ways in at under 9 pounds and carries a lifetime warranty.


Hikers recommend using this tent for a mountaineering base camp.

They say this tent can be set up by one person but most people recommend giving it a couple practice runs in the backyard first.

One climber did recommend having at least two people in the tent to stabilize the heat ratio.

One hiker did say the tent was a bit tight with 4 people but is quite roomy with 3.

The tent does feature 50 square feet of floor space, so make sure you take that into account before your next trip.
