The compact platform and low weight of our Arete ASL tent are a minimalist's dream come true—we call it our ''all-season light'' tent because it accommodates light winter weather quite nicely.

  • Features

    • Dual AirLift vents in the rainfly let wind pass through, lifting the tent slightly for increased stability and cross-flow ventilation
    • 3-pole ''modified'' dome is structurally sound and creates generous space around shoulder area
    • Single door and vestibule allow a compact shape which fits easily into tight spaces; doors stuff neatly into their own pockets
    • Nicely placed clear film window in rainfly lets you view the weather conditions from inside tent
    • Clip and pole-sleeve design combine to provide easy setup, enhanced ventilation between fly and canopy and structural integrity
    • Dead End pole sleeves allow a nearly instant setup
    • Mesh ceiling and door panels provide excellent ventilation and allow stargazing in clear weather; nylon panels seal them shut in lousy weather
    • DAC Featherlite® NSL pole system features eco-friendly anodizing and super light, strong poles with press-fit connectors
    • Insider floor seams are engineered to create a nice, clean taut pitch and maximize floor space; factory seam-taping ensures a waterproof seal
    • Leak-proof rainfly construction ensures that water won't sneak through susceptible areas such as guyout points and zippers
    • Attention to detail shows with reflective guy points, adjustable cleat-lock tie-downs on rainfly and inside tent pockets to keep small items organized
    • Comes with guylines and tighteners, stakes, pole repair tube, pole and stake bags and tapered, easy-to-stuff compression stuff sack
    • Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only
