Description

Show Description

Take in your surroundings from your backcountry bedroom. The Salt Creek has a unique third door with an awning-style entrance that creates a front porch to sit under or enjoy the views. It has a large interior space to comfortably wait out storms and room at the head area to accommodate wide-shouldered occupants.

  • Lightweight polyester and mesh canopy balance weather protection and ventilation.
  • Seams are taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (No PVC or VOCs).
  • High volume pole structure creates near vertical side walls and interior volume.
  • DAC Pressfit aluminum poles have a high strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Double side doors with vestibules provide gear storage.
  • Dual-zippered front door can be rigged up like an awning with your hiking poles.
  • 2 interior mesh pockets, 1 huge elevated pocket and 1 ceiling pocket store gear without taking up sleeping space.
  • Reflective guylines and reflective webbing on tent corners
  • Includes 8 lightweight aluminum stakes and 2 additional guylines.
