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).
