Mountain Hardwear used a unique pole structure to make the Casa 4 four-person, three-season tent easy to pitch and spacious inside. This four-person tent has only two poles. One pole arches over the entrance, branches at two side hubs to create sidewall support as well as roof support, and snakes to the back of the tent. The other pole helps hold up the back end of the tent. Aside from easy setup, this structure results in nearly vertical walls, so you can use more of the Casa 4’s interior space. Put on the fly, and you get 22 square feet of vestibule area as well as a watertight fortress against the elements. In warm weather, leave off the fly and enjoy the breeze through this Mountain Hardwear tent’s mesh windows.

Bottom Line:
Mountain Hardwear’s Casa 4 is your spacious mountain home for friends or the whole family.
