Details

  • High-strength pole architecture, lightweight materials, fully sealable interior and roomy floor plan combine to create a low-weight, weather-worthy tent
  • 3-pole extended dome structure is designed for strength; compact footprint and single front vestibule are ideal for setups in tight spots
  • Asymmetrical shape keeps the weight low while allowing an efficient use of interior space; it provides nice roominess around the shoulder area
  • Large, multidiameter DAC Featherlight® NSL Combi poles increase interior volume and structural stability
  • Dual AirLift rainfly vents channel wind to increase tent's strength; fully adjustable, these ceiling vents create cross-flow ventilation that mitigates condensation
  • Dead End pole sleeves and color coding facilitate a quick setup
  • Speed-pitching option allows tent and fly to be semi-permanently attached for a quick setup that protects the canopy from precipitation
  • Arete can be used in a variety of seasons and climates: inner tent is fully closeable, with zippered panels that cover the mesh doors and vents
  • Hybrid floor combines sealed seams and bathtub curves to create a waterproof, taut floor; tautness enhances door-zipper operation and maximizes volume at end walls
  • Vestibule overhangs tent door so rain stays outside
  • Multiple storage options include corner pockets, roof pockets and hang loops; use the door pocket to hold door out of the way or for storage
  • Siliconized 30-denier ripstop nylon fly is lightweight, highly water repellent and tear resistant
  • No-wick welded construction ensures that moisture won't sneak through susceptible areas, such as guy-out points, pole wraps and zippers
  • Comes with guylines and tighteners, stakes, pole and stake bags, pole repair tube, and tapered, easy-to-fill compression stuff sack
