"For a small, fairly cheap, lightweight tent, im very happy with it. I originally bought the tent used from an REI garage sale for $35 because the elastic was stretched out in the poles. Other than having the hassle of ..."


This two-person tent is perfect for three-season backpacking and bike touring--revised floor plan fits two standard sleeping pads without overlap. Lightweight, freestanding design with a convenient integral vestibule for storing gear. Features pole clip system and strong, lightweight DAC Featherlite poles with locking pole tips for an easy setup. Insider floor seams are engineered to create a nice, clean taut pitch and maximize floor space; factory seam-taping ensures a waterproof seal. Large mesh ceiling panel, new rear mesh panel and a built-in vestibule vent provide increased airflow. Tent stays organized with two interior pockets. UV-resistant polyester rainfly ensures a taut pitch, even when wet; small clear film window is perfect for viewing weather conditions. Roll up and secure vestibule door out of the way for more ventilation or create an awning by supporting vestibule door with trekking poles. Back of the rainfly rolls up and secures half-way open for extensive views to the outside; quickly deploys for full coverage when needed. No-wick VELCRO brand closure pole wraps ensure rainfly stays in place even in precarious weather conditions. Attention to detail shows in the reflective guy points and zipper pulls, and adjustable ladder-loc tie-downs on the rainfly. Comes with guylines and tighteners, stakes, pole repair tube, pole and stake bags and tapered, easy-to-stuff compression stuff sack. Footprint (sold separately) extends the life of your tent by protecting it from abrasive wear and tear. Average minimum weight specification based on tent, poles and rainfly. Save weight by creating a minimalist shelter using rainfly, poles and footprint only.
