Key Features

  • Large Drop Doors

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

  • 8" 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. Plus, each occupant gets zip-accessible individual gear storage

  • Individual Doors for Each Occupant

    Easy entry and exit for maximum livability. Allows unprecedented cross ventilation for superior condensation management
