Description

Show Description

Grab two friends and head into the wilderness. There's room for everyone and their stuff thanks to double vestibules, internal pockets and a gear loft. The tent uses durable fabrics, has a waterproof polyurethane coating and full seam sealing, so it can stand up to any rainstorm – and it includes a footprint to double up the protection. And at 2.5kg, it's light enough to carry into the backcountry, but spacious enough to work at drive-up campgrounds too.

  • 2 doors, 2 vestibules for gear storage and late night exits.
  • High-low ventilation keeps air moving for breathability and less condensation.
  • Fly can be rolled up to increase ventilation on steamy summer nights.
  • 3 strong but light DAC SNL poles creates steep walls for increased interior space.
  • Internal pockets and a gear loft to organize flashlights, warm socks and other small stuff.
  • Made of durable nylon and polyester with a polyurethane coating and full seam taping so rain can't sneak in.
  • Included footprint protects the floor, cut slightly smaller than the tent so it won't channel water underneath.
  • To save weight, set up the footprint and fly alone for a shelter that weighs only 1.7kg.
  • Includes guylines for stability in the wind.
