Hello, I was at Burningman this year and I am looking for a new tent/shelter etc. My 6 person tent was a great size but did not keep the tremendous dust storms out that occurred almost daily form noon to 2pm and accompanied by high winds. What would you recommend for such a location?
Nothing short of being sealed in will keep you free from the dust at Burning Man. Our domes have performed well in the wind at Burning Man during the past 10 years. They will help control the dust but they will not give you a dust free environment. We recommend sticky back velcro or duct tape be used to help seal problem areas. Be sure to clean seams before applying velcro. Alcohol is good to clean areas were you want to stick Velcro.
