A stable, low-profile design has made the Tarn 2 huge with backpacking, biking and paddling twosomes, and with soloists who like sprawl. New cam cleat tensioners let you adjust the guy lines without the tedious pulling-and-threading of traditional tighteners. A new cinch-down style stuff stack makes packing the tent up so simple and fast, you’ll be able to do it before your second cup of coffee is brewed.
