Product Description

My experience with this tent has been good so far, and it's definitely a great one for a minimalist such as myself. Though as noted below (Other Information) it is a small tent and will probably not be best if you get claustrophobic.

This three season tent offers enough sleeping area for two people. It is also incredibly lightweight, for those of you that like to count ounces within your pack, weighing just over 4 lbs for a 2-person tent. It is not a free-standing tent, however. It boasts of two large doors on either side so each sleeper has their own way in/out of the tent without needing to wake the other person up by crawling over them. Two vestibles, one on both sides as well.

Easy set up, especially in non-ideal weather conditions is provided by color-coded clips. Sturdy tent and taut pitches due to FeatherliteĀ® poles and it comes with a polyester rainfly, DAC and a durable polyurethane-coated nylon taffeta floor and it has side-release buckles for quick attachment connection from rainfly to tent

It also offers waterproof seams that are up off the ground. Plenty of side wall vents and mesh ceiling help keep air flowing to prevent condensation. There are plenty of internal storage pockets as well.

Includes stuff sacks, guyline and stakes.
