Description

Show Description

Somewhere between a bivy and a tent, you’ll find a happy medium in the High Side. Whether you’re into bikepacking or backpacking, the super compact and lightweight design is a welcome treat. Short pole segments take up minimal real estate while you’re on the go. The vestibule (yes, you still get a vestibule!) converts into an awning to give you extra coverage on the outside.

  • Floor and fly are made of ultra-lightweight silicone-impregnated nylon ripstop with a waterproof PU coating.
  • Inner tent body is nylon mesh that shields you from no-see-ums and provides plenty of breathability.
  • DAC Featherlite aluminum poles provide strength at a low weight.
  • Pre-bent poles use an asymmetrical shape with a high side over the door to maximize livable space and ease entry and exit.
  • Strong DAC aluminum poles use short pole sections to allow the tent to pack down small inside your pannier or backpack.
  • Non-freestanding design saves weight and lean-to profile helps it shed wind and rain.
  • Side entry vestibule converts to an awning (just add a trekking pole or guy it out to a tree) that is big enough to sit under.
  • Colour-coded poles allow for easy set up.
  • Side loading Burrito Storage Bag is easy to use and packs up small inside your backpack.
  • An interior pocket keeps your headlamp within easy reach for 3am bathroom trips.
