MEC Wanderer 2-Person Tent


See available camping tents


We re-architected the Wanderer 2 Tent to make it roomier inside and add more space to the vestibules too. The pole structure creates almost vertical walls and gives you tons of headroom and living space for getting dressed or sitting up to play cards. It's not an ultralight model, but it's lean enough to bring on a backpacking trip and it's excellent for canoe tripping or sea kayaking.

  • Hubbed pole structure with 2 brow poles creates near vertical side walls to give you lots of livable interior space
  • Colour-coded poles and clips allow for fast set up
  • Interior doors have both mesh and fabric panels so you can zip up for privacy or just use the mesh door to let the breeze in on hot nights
  • 2 large vestibules provide storage of damp gear and pets, and allow night-time exits without disturbing your tent mate
  • Vestibules have hooded vents with collapsible kickstands to customize the ventilation
  • Internal pockets store headlamps, books and other nighttime essentials
  • Cinch-down style stuff sack makes packing up simple and fast. You’ll be done before your second cup of coffee
  • Includes 8 DAC J-stakes, guylines and a tent pole repair splint
