Bikepackers, light packers and peak baggers, meet our lightest 1-person yet: the REI Co-op Flash Air 1 tent. Pitch it with its own poles—or use your trekking pole for a 1 lb. 4 oz. setup.

  • Features

    • The nearly 90° hubbed roof pole gives extra headroom; foot pole increases volume at the other end, giving your tootsies 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
    • Designed to pitch with most trekking poles so you can leave the long pole at home to save weight
    • Hybrid single-wall construction optimizes weight and livability
    • Large, easy-entry, canopy-style door
    • Internal mesh pockets and gear loops allow for simple organization
    • Packs down to 16 in. long, an easy fit in bike panniers or a backpack
    • Guyout loops allow for tethering in inclement weather
    • Comes with a stuff sack, stakes, guylines and tensioners, 1 long pole, 1 pole hub and 1 foot pole
    • The weight-saving design of this non-freestanding tent requires you to stake it out during setup
    • Hybrid single-wall design, as with any single-wall tent, exposes the tent interior more directly to condensation
    • Mitigate this by choosing a proper tent site (away from water, under trees and exposed to breezes), venting when possible, and not bringing wet gear into the tent or vestibule
    • Weighs 1 lb. 4 oz. if you leave the long pole at home and use a trekking pole; with the included pole, it weighs 1 lb. 6 oz.
