  • Features

    • Large single drop door saves weight, but is extra wide and large enough for 2 people to sit side by side
    • Asymmetrical design tapers to the footbox to reduce weight; 42.5 in. peak height provides livable space and foot hoop creates a full-size footbox
    • Hybrid double / single wall canopy reduces weight
    • Integrated fly and tent body and hubbed pole pitch allow for speedy, dry setup
    • 15-in. integrated awning replaces a traditional front vestibule, allowing maximum access to the full width of the door opening
    • Side gear "closets" can be accessed from the outside or inside
    • Covered foot vent creates an air tunnel between the foot-end and the door on the other end for ventilation and superior condensation management
    • Freestanding tent can be pitched anywhere, no matter how impenetrable the surface
