Description

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.

  • Pull-out vestibule for storage or stripping off wet rain gear
  • Mesh sidewalls and high vent help to keep condensation down in cooler weather
  • Poles attach with clips for lightness, fast set-up, and air circulation
  • Can be set up without the fly in dry weather, as a bug tent
