Key Features

  • Freestanding

    Can be pitched anywhere—no matter how impenetrable the surface

  • Large Single Drop Door

    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

  • Hubbed Pole Pitch

    Speedy, dry set up

  • Massive Foot Vent

    Creates a venting tunnel between the foot box and the drop door vent for unprecedented ventilation and superior condensation management

  • Foot Hoop

    Full-size foot box

  • 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
