Ounce-counters, meet our lightest 2-person tent yet: the REI Co-op Flash Air 2. Pitch it with its own poles—or use your trekking poles instead to save weight—and you'll barely know it's in your pack.


  • The nearly 90° hubbed roof poles give extra headroom; foot pole increases volume at the other end, giving your toes room to wiggle, for a comfy night's sleep
  • Fly/vestibule protects your gear in bad weather, then rolls up over the roof for stargazing or pitches out to create a large awning in friendlier weather
  • Premium aluminum poles and tested materials provide nearly vertical walls, and minimize weight while maximizing durability
  • Designed to pitch with most trekking poles so you can leave the vertical poles at home to save an additional 4.4 oz. (2.2 oz. per pole)
  • 2 large, easy-entry canopy-style doors
  • Internal mesh pockets and gear loops allow for simple organization
  • Packs down to 17.9 in. long—an easy fit in bike panniers or a backpack
  • Guyout loops allow for tethering in inclement weather
  • Comes with 4 poles, a stuff sack, 10 stakes, 4 guylines and tensioners
  • The weight-saving design of this nonfreestanding tent requires you to stake it out during setup
  • Hybrid single-wall construction optimizes weight and livability
  • REI is Climate Neutral Certified; as we work to actively reduce our footprint, we measure annual carbon emissions and purchase an equivalent amount of verified carbon credits
  • Contains materials that meet the bluesign® criteria
