Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Enjoy lots of room and lots of options without spending lots of cash. Easy to assemble and comfortable for short-haul hikes, the Elixir 1 Tent is light enough to go far and fast. Roll back the fly for venting or stargazing, or button it down if you need shelter from the storm. Comes with the footprint, so you can leave the canopy at home for ultralight outings.
