Product Description

* Single-wall design boasts low weight, while its single center pole architecture creates a stable and tight structure

* As a backpacking style tent, full vestibule space is built in.

* The fabric is ideal for single-wall tents, not water repellent but water proof coated polyester, 185T.            

* Only one tent pole, light and compact, and also lessening the need to carry weight by having the options of mounting using cord or a pole found at site or a hiking pole with extender (furnished).  A small rear support is also furnished, but a stick can be found on site.

* Tensioned fabric makes the tent quiet in heavy winds

* Doors use hook and loop, lessening weight and allowing outside viewing and quick exit.

* Doors can stay open in the rain without saturating the tent.
