Show Description

We sent our popular Gemini ES to fitness camp. Now called the Volt 2, it’s faster, lighter, sharper looking, and better outfitted. Yet it still delivers the living room and three-season solidity that made the original a hit. In your pack or strapped to your bike rack, it’s barely noticeable. In camp, it’s conspicuously spacious and comfortable.

  • One-piece pole set with a centre hub assembles quickly and easily.
  • Crossed-wedge design and upper crossed poles provide generous headroom and great stability.
  • Translucent fly, light coloured canopy, and fluoro-green floor keep the interior ambience upbeat even in dull weather.
  • Full fabric canopy keeps out windblown rain, sand, or snow out and keeps in warmth.
  • Twin vestibules, each with its own window, ensure you both have gear storage and a way out without waking your tent mate.
  • Pegs are upgraded to DAC J-stakes, with a V-cross section that holds better than needle or wire styles.
  • Guy lines are reflective and have glove-friendly tensioners.
  • Undyed canopy fabrics ands poles anodized without heavy metals reduce its environmental impact.
