Flashlight 2

Key Features

  • Large Drop Doors

    Non-confining, open, airy feel. Easy entry and exit

  • 6" Awning Coverage

    Provides dry entry and exit. Delivers sun protection and allows for door/window to remain open during a storm

  • Hybrid Double/Single Wall

    Reduces weight and provides quick, dry set up, even in the rain

  • Trekking Pole Compatible

    Save a valuable 6 oz. by using your trekking poles and leave the 46" vertical poles behind, making this the largest and most livable tent in its weight class

  • Defined Footprint With Only 6 Stake Outs

    Easiest set up of any tarp tent ever made. Eliminates “restaking” associated with most tarp tents and trekking pole shelters

  • Gear Closet

    Gear storage where it should be—away from the door. Whether toggled closed or left open for additional venting, gear stays dry in a rainstorm

Additional Features

  • Freestanding - Can be pitched anywhere—no matter how impenetrable the surface.

  • Large Single Drop Doors - Single door saves weight, but is uncommonly wide and large enough for two to sit side by side.

  • 15" Integrated Awning Poles - Maximizes the door opening and drip line without the weight of a support pole.

  • Hybrid Double/Single Wall - Reduces weight and provides quick, dry set-up, even in the rain.

  • Night Glow Included - Illuminate your tent using the headlamp you're already carrying to diffuse a soft, even glow.
