Show Description

A minimal and lightweight option for winter camping, ski touring or camping out where bugs are not an issue. It creates a shelter for 2 people plus gear, and weighs about the same as your chocolate stash. The setup requires 2 trekking poles or ski poles, but it's light enough to carry everywhere as your emergency shelter or lunch hut. The pared-back design has a single door and no vestibule, but the sloping walls create space for gear around the perimeter.

  • Fabric is high-tenacity nylon, silicone treated on both sides.
  • Seams are not sealed, but can be waterproofed with a sealant designed for silicone fabrics, such as McNett Sil-Net.
  • Requires 2 adjustable trekking poles or ski poles for set up.
  • Single zippered door with storm flap.
  • Optional bug-proof inner available separately.
  • Includes stuff sack, stakes and instructions.
