Icarus 9 person family camping dome tent

Hi Ken, thanks for your email

The 4 room version you referred to is the Nexus and its currently out of stock

The Icarus is a Premium grade tent and includes a lot of upgrades based on customer feedback received from customers who purchased our most popular tents including the Nexus

The Icarus does include a full coverage rain fly (as shown in the picture here) which is fully sewn in to a tube style waterproof floor to prevent weather and bugs entering the interior living area

Premium Tents

CEC Premium Grade Tent Features

(1) Con-Struct (TM) Super-lite tent poles:
  • High tensile modular poles designed to give maximum support
  • Roof pitch: prevents water pooling on top of tent by guiding it down and way from the roof
  • Pole sleeves give tent fuller assemble shape to maximize room size
(2) Exo-derm (TM) rain fly:
  • Fabric specially designed for CEC
  • Does not stretch or sag like nylon when wet - tent retains shape in heavy downpour
  • Weatherproof:  Coated with a Polyurethane film rated at 3000mm
  • Seam sealed to prevent water penetration
(3) Storm flap: channels water away from the tent

(4) Dyna-strap (TM) webbing:  bigger and stronger than conventional guy lines, fitted at peak of pole arc to provide maximum tension, help stabilize tent and maintain structure, especially in strong winds

(5) Mesh vents:  top and opposite ends of tent allow for greater air circulation reducing internal condensation and regulating heat exchange while keeping out bugs and rain

(6) Doors:  full mesh fabric for air circulation with secondary weather proof full fabric doors for privacy

(7) Guy lines:  high tensile nylon woven with 3M reflective taping for greater visibility in low light conditions

(8) Inner tent:  
  • Breathable polyester with mesh vents help regulate air flow
  • Partition walls:  removable to create larger single sleeping pod or as a room divider for added privacy
  • Dri-tek (TM) floor:  Fully sewn in tub style floor
  • Heat sealed, prevents moisture penetration, abraision resistant
(9) Talon tent stakes (TM):  high impact resistant ABS tent stakes firmly hold down corners and webbing support straps - yet many times lighter than conventional steel stakes

I am interested in buying the Icarus 9 person tent. The tent maker also has a 4 room version. Do you carry it? Does the Icarus come with an external rain fly that isn't in pics (like the Utah?)

   We purchased the Polaris tent.  Have had it for 3 years. Camped a total of about 18 times with it.  Sometimes for 15 days at a time.  Our tent was THE ONLY tent that didn't leak at every event we went to.  I do use a water repellant spray as well but Basically the tent is a dream for large families. We are very pleased with it. I have a family that needs a new tent....I am giving them my beloved Polaris.....I want the Atlas and 3 Miga.........I saw what you guys did in Haiti....Nice...my company does business worldwide and I love it when a company puts its money where its mouth is....
