Description

Show Description

The secret of lightweight packing: carry items that have more than one use. 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 without the weight penalty of a full metal frame.

  • Single wall design with vents under the eaves to circulate air and reduce condensation.
  • Poles can be rigged inside or outside the tent.
  • 2 oversized storage pockets along walls keep your essentials close at hand without encroaching on your living space.
  • All seams are sealed with waterproof tape that is free of solvents, PVCs and VOCs.
  • Set-up requires 2 trekking poles (not included).
  • 8 superlight aluminum J stakes included.
