Show Description

For thru-hikers who want the lowest possible base weight and still crave a spacious shelter. This tent uses featherlight fabrics, supported by a pair of trekking poles. Vertical walls create usable floor space and an uncrowded feel with lots of head and elbow room. Vents on all sides allow airflow and reduce condensation that’s usually the bane of single-wall designs. The vents are sheltered by an overhanging front awning, so you can zip down the door and admire the views.

  • Single wall, one-piece design with the fly sewn to the body.
  • Taped seams to make it watertight.
  • Large, half-moon shaped door.
  • Mesh windows, foot vent and door vents provide airflow and prevent condensation.
  • Mesh pocket keeps gear organized.
  • Front requires 2 height-adjustable trekking poles for setup.
  • Rear of the tent uses a small included pole (you can save weight by using a stick or a third trekking pole).
  • Loops for staking it out.
  • Optional footprint available. Recommended to get maximum life from your FlyLite.
