The secret of lightweight packing: carry items that have more than one purpose. This modern A-frame tent uses your trekking poles for support. It's as roomy as a classic model, but takes advantage of today’s featherlight fabrics to produce a stable shelter with a generous vestibule, but without the weight penalty of a full metal frame.
- Single wall design with full eve and rear venting to circulate air and reduce condensation.
