Description

Updated for 2020, the new Spark 2.0 now has greater fly coverage and the ability for ultralight fly-and-footprint setup. Weighing just over a kilo, it has a roomy interior that gives you plenty of room to hang out, read, escape bugs and, of course, sleep soundly.

  • Polyester ripstop fly is UV-resistant and stretches less than nylon when wet
  • Lightweight nylon and mesh canopy balance weather protection and ventilation
  • Fully seam taped
  • DriBase™ waterproof floor offers durable water protection throughout the lifetime of the tent
  • Single peaked vent in the fly
  • Featherlight DAC NSL poles have pressfit connectors and a high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Hubbed pole design creates steep walls for greater internal volume
  • Reflective zipper pulls and stake-out cords
  • 2 interior mesh pockets
  • Includes 8 DAC aluminum J stakes, guylines and stuff sack
  • Optional footprint available for floor protection or an ultralight configuration (sold separately)
