The Aeolos is a 3 season, 2 person backpacking tent that won Backpacker Magazine's Editor's Choice Award in 2006, and was also rated as best all-around in it's class in the BP 2007 Gear Guide.
At 5.5 pounds, the Aeolos is advertised to possess the same "bulletproof" qualities normally associated with Marmot tents, without the weight.
Marmot's famous bent-knees design and airy mesh walls make it a very livable two person tent.
Two doors allow easy in and out without disturbing your partner, and two vestibules offer personal storage areas.
DAC, Dual Diameter poles are engineered with varying pole diameters to create stiffer poles that increase the tent's overall stability.
Knee-pole design creates a steeper sidewall for inside spaciousness; provides more volume around you while you are lying down.
DAC/Marmot double clips disperse stress over larger areas, won't slide, have an incredible breaking strength and are easy to use with gloves.
Cantenary cut floor provides a tight pitch with reduced weight; fully seam-taped bathtub floor maintains waterproofness.
Lightweight, durable nylon ripstop rainfly has silicone/PU coating for waterproof protection and UV resistance.
Welded VELCRO brand fly attachments create complete waterproof construction.
Window Weld design gives views to the outside, lets in light and reduces weight.
Stake Tape shaves weight by eliminating grommets, yet are strong and allow versatile set-up.
Light-reflective piping helps you find your tent at night.
Inside pockets provide storage off the floor for organizing your equipment.
Bare Bones Set Up: in warmer weather, leave your tent body behind and use just the rainfly, ground sheet (sold separately) and poles.
Stuff sacks, stakes, repair fabric, pole repair sleeve, guy cord, sliders and buckle included.
Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only.
