If you're planning to camp in extreme weather condidtions, you need to know your tent is proven to withstand them.

Wind tunnel tests conducted by specialist engineers have shown that if the tent design is too rigid, extreme wind speeds can push the construction beyond its performance limits: if it can't bend, it can snap. When developing the Asylum, their alpine expedition tent, Jack Wolfskin therefore decided to combine their proven Real Tunnel and Real Dome designs to create a geodesic hybrid that was both stable enough and flexible enough to withstand storm force winds. Both constructions utilise variable diameter pole sections that flex in a specific way. In the Real Tunnel design, the lower segments of the poles are more stable, while the Real Dome pole sections are stronger in the roof area. Combining the two designs gives the Asylum the desired stability and flexibility at critical areas of the geodesic construction. In tests, this Real Tunnel Dome construction was able to withstand wind speeds of up to 130km/h (approx 80mph) without sustaining any damage.

In light winds, the tent is perfectly stable without the guylines and since it is also built to withstand snow loading, it is highly suitable for winter and high mountain use. Additional advantages of the design are the generous internal space, courtesy of the steeper sides, and optimal use of the available space in the vestibule area. Top quality fabrics like the extremely light and tough Silicon HT Nylon Ripstop 40D, and a superb build quality make the tent extremely reliable. It is also equipped with all round storm flaps for winter use and to deliver extra protection in high winds.
