The Icarus 9-Person Family Camping Dome Tent is a 27'x22'x6', waterproof tent that families and big groups will surely love for its roomy and customizable inner tent. It is part of our Premium Line and comes with the innovative, Con-Struct (TM) Super-lite tent poles.

HOW DOES IT COMPARE?

In the same group as the Como, Discovery, Capricorn, Utah, Sarengo, Zeus, Oberon, Atlas + Miga, and Axis & Zulu, the Icarus 9 is part of the 7-10 people range. It is on the higher end of the scale with its 9-person rating.

Despite this rating, this hub + pod style tent can better accommodate only up to 7 people. By using one of the pods as a storage room, a big family can have enough sleeping and living space with the 2 remaining pods and the main hub. This arrangement can be modified according to what's more comfortable for your family. Just check out the floor area map on the image gallery to see the tent's lay out.

The Icarus 9 is one of the newer models and has a Premium construction. A Premium construction tent uses lightweight, high-tensile poles.  With its weight of 15.6 kgs, the Icarus 9 is the lightest tent in this range!  If weight and portability is not a primary concern, you can look at heavier tents like the Discovery, Oberon, and Sarengo.

It has an inner standing space of 205 cm, placing it on the lower end of the scale in terms of headroom. You will find the Icarus sufficient if you do not have any special height requirements. However, if you need a taller tent you can look at Axis & Zulu Combo which has a maximum height of 260 cm.

Apart from being the lightest tent in this range, the Icarus 9 also has the smallest packed size. It packs down to a mere 78 x 46 x 24cm.

STAY WORRY-FREE IN A DOWNPOUR!

With Icarus 9's Exo-derm (TM) rain fly, you can be sure that no water seeps in during those summer showers. The durable 210T polyester taffeta won't sag like nylon rain fly! Moreover, it is coated with

3000mm polyurethane and the seams have 6-7 stitches per inch and are fully-taped. And to further your protection, the storm flap channels water away from the tent,

The flooring? No less than Dri-tek (TM): Polyethylene, tub-style groundsheet that will keep the water – and those pesky bugs – OUT! 

COOL COMFORT

The lightweight 190T polyester inner tent will be a comfortable shelter from the summer heat, thanks to the mesh vents and panels built in to the full fabric doors, improving air circulation and lessening condensation.

TAILOR IT TO YOUR NEEDS

Sometimes a group might need more sleeping quarters, or more storage space, or maybe a larger free standing shelter where you can share meals. Whatever it may be, the Icarus 9 can be just that for you! With the detachable partitions, you can add rooms or take them away as you please.  

SECURE AND STEADY

The Icarus 9 comes with excellent and carefully-engineered assembly pieces to ensure that the tent will stand strong and hold its shape. The Dyna-strap (TM) webbing is a set of large PP webbing straps positioned with precision at the high points of the tent down to either end for maximum tension and resistance.  Teamed up with the Talon tent stakes (TM), lighter than steel but high-resistance ABS stakes, you tent will remain firmly on the ground in strong wind conditions. (Note: The Icarus 9 is sturdy BUT not specifically designed for use in extreme wind conditions like gale force winds and hurricanes).  

POLE INNOVATION

Probably one of the greatest features of this tent is its poles: The Con-Struct (TM) Super-lite tent poles.

Heavy-duty, recyclable, high-tension poles that will hold up the tent and give it a fuller shape for space maximization! And if you are in need of a pole replacement due to normal wear and tear, you will find that it will be no trouble at all because these poles are basically your standardized PVC pipes. Just drop by your local hardware store, get some and cut it to size! However, that might not be necessary because we will provide you with a hassle-free 12-month warranty.

Your Questions Answered

From Tim:

I am trying to decide between the Icarus, Utah and Oberon tents. The description of the Icarus says the the floor of the rain fly is removable, but the blog states that, for premium tents, the rain fly and ground sheet are sewn together. Can you clarify?

Answer:

There is a groundsheet sewn into the rain fly and then there are separate sleeping pods that also have their own floor sewn into them that you then attach inside the rainfly giving you 2 separate layers of waterproof flooring in each sleeping area. Hope that helps!

From Matt:

I have a Triton tent and was needing one of the rooms for it and wondered if they were still available to purchase.

Answer:

Hi Matt, unfortunately this design is already discontinued and our warehouses no longer have any in stock as well as the spare parts. If, however, you are looking for an upgrade, the Icarus tent is another tri-room tent that features many new improvements to the previous Triton design. You may find it even better.

    Product as described. Very happy. Thanks.

  2. Amazing but lacking.

    Posted by on

    This tent is by far the biggest and coolest tent I have ever been in, and I've been in a lot of tents. As a former cub scout and boy scout I'm a highly experienced tent camper and none have amazed me more than the Icarus tent.
    Pros: Uber amounts of space. Pods within pods for dirt and bug free sleeping. Small covered zipper holes for power cords. Well sealed entrances. Comfortable feeling inside. Cons: Slight leaks around stitching areas. Instructions were very vague and hard to understand. Polls needed to be cut to certain lengths to actually fit(Instructions didn't tell me I needed to and they didn't come pre-cut). Rain tarps did not have tie down loops on sides so wind made them flap and rain would blow in. No spare poles, so if you cut one to short your stuck until you order another one.
    There are a lot of cons I have on this tent but I still think its going be worth it. Personally I wouldn't take it were there are strong winds because this thing is a giant wind block. Be sure if you do, you have every stake and tie down in it's place or it's going to end up in another town. If your an experienced camper and know how to deal with these issues than this tent will be ok for you but if your a first timer I wouldn't recommend it.

  3. The Versailles of Tents

    Posted by on

    This mammoth tent is really 3 tents in one, thanks to the innovative triad design. Because of this cool shape and the tent's 3 doors, you have plenty of options when choosing a spot to setup camp (just as long as your site can handle the massive dimensions: 27' x 22')...a cool design because you feel like you're in a "home" since each camper is sharing the tent, but has his own space and privacy as well. The foyer area is great for hanging out -it creates a nice sense of camaraderie...The challenging part is setting up the tent -it's a really big job. You cannot assemble this tent alone -and you will go crazy if you try...Once it's standing up in all its glory, however, you will be worshipped by the other campers -because it really is a great tent. It is the perfect scale and layout, with a pleasant color-scheme and a true sense of harmony in the design. It's the Versailles of tents!
